Buy A New Build Village Home At Rosewood Mill
28 Feb 2013

Homes at Rosewood Mill, Linden Homes’ new development off a leafy road in the Hampshire village of West End, are selling well. And although this collection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes isn’t yet complete, the houses are already selling off plan.

Buying a home off plan takes courage, but the advantages can be numerous. You get to pick the plot that best suits your needs, and because the homes are unfinished it allows customers to put their own personal touches to a new home.

These homes are already very popular, with several already having been sold off-plan before they’re even completed. So it might be wise to register your interest with us now. If you look to buy off-plan, you can reap many benefits too in being able to:

  • Choose exactly what plot you want from this first phase of stunning homes
  • Design the home as you want it: you can choose your kitchen, and bathroom tiles, appliances, flooring and other items too, depending on the stage of construction
  • Give it your personal touch: using our Enhance service, you can upgrade and select from a variety of optional extras to make your home even more individual
  • Potentially save money: you may be able to take advantage of special Pre-Show Home prices

Once it’s complete, Rosewood Mill will be a mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraced properties built around a large, central green – which will give this development a lovely sense of community. The homes are designed in a very traditional style to complement the layout and village surroundings.

The village, which is north east of Southampton, has excellent communication links. Direct train services link Southampton with many parts of the UK and London Waterloo is just over an hour away. Southampton Airport is conveniently close – with its 11 airlines and 40 destinations. The M27 is nearby, as are the coastal roads to Brighton in the east and Bournemouth in the west.

To make the buying process easier Linden Homes – named ‘Best large Housebuilder of the year 2012’ at the What House? Awards - has a selection of schemes on offer:

It could be that you’re interested in a new home at Rosewood Mill, but view your existing home as a barrier to a smooth move. The Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme* is designed to relive that pressure and take the responsibility of selling your home for you.

Under the scheme, Linden Homes will have your old property valued and make you an offer for it so you can go ahead and buy your new Linden Home.

Mark Docherty is Linden Homes’ sales and marketing director said: “Our Part Exchange Scheme has worked really well for many Linden Homes’ buyers. They have told us that knowing some of the stress and frustration of selling would be removed actually inspired them to go ahead with plans to buy a new home.”

Stephanie and Justin Walford found the Part Exchange Scheme to be an extremely smooth process: “We’d been getting nowhere when we were trying to sell the old house ourselves. Once we found the home we wanted, the Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme took away the hassle of selling our old house. It also freed up a few thousand pounds in saved estate agent fees. But most importantly it meant we could get on with the move.”

Alison and David Huntingford also used the Part Exchange Scheme to buy their new Linden Home: “The Part Exchange Scheme gave us absolute peace of mind because we knew we weren’t part of a chain that could break. We were so desperate to move and the price Linden Homes offered us for our old home was set, which made it so much easier when it came to dealing with the banks. But the best thing was that we knew when we were going to move. We had a definite date and we knew that it was going to happen.”
