Admired Aspens Sees New Homes Released
19 Jan 2019

Linden Homes is delighted to announce the release of new properties at its popular Aspens development, in Birtley, which has already proved a real hit with house hunters.

Following great success at the adjacent Sycamores development, The Aspens is delivering a unique selection of contemporary, three and four bedroomed homes and has seen its first phase sell extremely quickly.

Overlooked by the Angel of the North and ideally located for an easy commute, the development is near to a superb choice of local schools and amenities.

Sales Director, Tracy Iles, says: “Those looking for a spacious and state of the art home with an exceptional level of specification - and fantastic links to both Newcastle and Durham - need look no further than our Aspens development in Birtley.

“With the first phase selling so quickly, we don’t expect these latest releases to be available for long and with our special Homebuyers event taking place this January - offering incredible incentives including stamp duty paid and free flooring for a limited time only* – potential buyers will need to act fast to avoid missing out on these sought after new homes.”

The exquisite three bedroomed Elm is a stylish home with large, energy efficient windows and an attractive peaked roof. The front door, with useful covered canopy, opens to a hallway which leads to a magnificent open plan kitchen come dining or family area. With a breakfast bar and views and access to the garden provided by sets of glass doors, this stunning space draws in an abundance of natural light and is perfect for entertaining or enjoying a quiet morning coffee in peace and comfort.

The Elm’s ground floor also has a separate, spacious living room, a laundry room and a downstairs WC. Upstairs is the master bedroom with ensuite shower room, two additional double bedrooms – one of which could also be utilised as a home office or children’s playroom – and the beautiful family bathroom.

Buyers looking for a taste of the modern will want to explore the four bedroomed Hickory. Enjoying a striking and innovative appearance, incorporating high performance floor to ceiling windows and design-lead architectural features, the property delivers an outstanding level of style.

The front door with sheltered surround, opens to a welcoming hall, providing access to a large living room - with bi-folding doors to the garden - and a dining room which benefits from extensive glazing. At the rear of the property is the Hickory’s pièce de résistance - a luxurious and spacious kitchen come family area, with sumptuous fixtures and fittings and two sets of bi-folding doors that create a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor living spaces. The ground floor also has a utility room, downstairs WC, a useful storage cupboard and a separate garage.

The stairs to the second floor open to a large landing with room for a seating area or study space. There’s a master bedroom with elegant ensuite, two further double bedrooms and a third bedroom that could also be used as a playroom or home office. The beautifully presented family bathroom completes the property’s sizeable layout. The Hickory is a truly wonderful family home.

Tracy adds: “Those who think that buying a brand new property may be too much of a stretch financially, should take a look around our beautiful development and find out how Help to Buy** has enabled thousands of people to secure the home of their dreams.

“The government backed scheme requires buyers to put down a deposit of 5% of the property value and provides a 20% equity loan towards the remaining cost - on which no fees or interest are payable for up to five years. The purchaser still owns 100% of the home. Our knowledgeable sales team will be happy to discuss how the initiative could help potential customers make the buying process more affordable.”
