Bag a bungalow – great for downsizers or first time buyers in Market Harborough

Whether you are looking to step onto the housing ladder for the first time or seeking something a little smaller, Market Harborough is your go-to new homes destination.
The Linden Homes Midlands Ashton Rise development in the desirable Lubenham Hill area has already proved popular, with a number of new homes being snapped up from the drawing board.

The range of 119 two, three, four and five-bedroom properties available includes a number of bungalows – ideal for first time buyers or existing homeowners looking to downsize.

Downsizing to or choosing a smaller brand new home has many advantages, including:

  • Less financial burdens (including utility bills)
  • Not so much housework
  • Far fewer repairs and maintenance to do in the home
  • The property feels more manageable and therefore more secure
  • Feeling content knowing there’s no need for a future move if you are downsizing
  • A great cleansing exercise – a chance to clear out clutter if you are moving from somewhere larger
  • A chance to invest in some new furniture!
  • A blank canvas
  • No need to spend so many hours gardening – but still having an outdoor space to enjoy.

There is also the opportunity to curb the cost of moving to Ashton Rise through schemes including the Government backed Help to Buy scheme.
Buyers need a minimum five per cent deposit and the government will lend them up to 20 per cent of the value of the property through an equity loan. This scheme is for new build homes only but not just for first time buyers.

And for those who have an existing property to sell, there is Part Exchange. Linden Homes will take away the hassle from customers with an existing property to sell – arranging independent valuations of their home and making them an offer based on the figure, subject to criteria, leaving them free to reserve a brand new home of their choice.

The show home and sales and marketing suite are open daily from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively contact the sales team on 01858 589882.
