A Slice Of Village Life Now Available At Linden Homes' Maple Wood
28 Feb 2012

A new view home will be opening (9th March) which will give house-hunters a feel for the cosy village life available at Linden Homes’ new ‘Maple Wood’ development, set in the Oxfordshire countryside.

Part of an idyllic collection of family houses located among trees on the edge of Sonning Common in Gardeners Copse, the view home will  be open for visitors to take in the surroundings and peruse the high specification features that come as standard from the award-winning housebuilder.

The delightful mix of two and four-bedroom properties is designed to echo the traditional English brick and pitched-roof local architecture and quaint clusters of cottages, providing a quiet retreat for residents to relax with their families and friends.

The stunning Chiltern Hills are on the doorstep and the village itself is surrounded by fields and woodland. It is also close to fashionable Henley-on-Thames with an international reputation for its famous regatta and music and arts festival which are established highlights of the English social season.

Sonning Common is also not far from the bustle of Reading with its shopping, nightlife and mainline route to Paddington station in the heart of London.

High-flyers will be particularly attracted by Maple Wood’s position within the commuter belt, but all will appreciate Linden Homes’ customary quality and attention to detail with fully-fitted kitchen appliances, turfed gardens, and superior fixtures and fittings.

Sonning Common is well positioned between the M4 and M40 for access into London, the south-west or towards the north. The area is dotted with golf courses and for boating enthusiasts Reading boasts a marina on the Thames.

The community of Sonning Common is this year celebrating its primary school’s centenary, and has its very own Cub pack. There is a health centre and local shops within walking distance of Gardeners Copse, including a butcher, baker, post office, and quaint village pub.

Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing manager Sharon Eldred said: “We’ve already had a lot of interest from house-hunters in Maple Wood as people’s attention has been caught by the beautiful location and customary high quality of our homes.

“Families and couples are going to find the combination particularly attractive, and with Henley-on-Thames down the road boasting its cafes, culture and charm, the lifestyle on offer is going to be hard to resist!

“Now visitors have something to come and see at Maple Wood, those interested will be able to take in, what a beautiful place it will be to live. We have some excellent financial products to smooth the way too. Give us a call and book a visit to experience Maple Wood and the area for yourself.”

Available on selected properties of up to £500,000 is the government-backed NewBuy mortgage scheme, which is designed to enable purchases with just a five per cent deposit –whether for first-time buyers or those moving up the property ladder.

Current property owners can also take advantage of the Part Exchange service offered on selected homes where Linden Homes will be the guaranteed cash buyer so customers can sell up and move on in one quick and easy hassle-free agreement.

The scheme takes out estate agents’ fees, the trouble of selling, and the danger of property chains going wrong and scuppering hopes for a new dream home.

Buyers will not only enjoy the blank canvas offered by new-build homes, but also the professional advice, high energy efficiency, and the peace of mind of a 10-year NHBC build warranty and two-year customer care warranty that come as standard.
