As England’s housing and construction industry begins to recover, developer Linden Homes is creating a regional buzz by selling a number of its stunning show homes.As England’s housing and construction industry begins to recover, developer Linden Homes is creating a regional buzz by selling a number of its stunning show homes.

Despite lock down, Linden Homes Yorkshire has continued to take reservations on new homes across East, North and South Yorkshire; thanks to virtual meetings and carefully planned social distanced appointments and allowing customers to hold their preferred plot for a £99 fee.

Buying and owning the ultimate dream home is now easier than you think; with show homes at a number of key developments ready to buy and move into . And buyers with an existing home to sale can use the Part Exchange†, Assisted Move‡ and Help to Buy* incentives to ease the financial strain.

The show home is often the jewel in the crown of the development; with its impeccably decorated rooms, fantastic interior design, amazing landscaped garden and sumptuous soft furnishings.

From this week, anyone interested in buying either show home can contact the team and arrange for a by appointment only viewing of the property, taking into account the Government guidance.
Each show home will include:

  • Expertly designed interiors
  • Landscaped garden
  • Window dressings and light fittings
  • Carpets and flooring
  • Up-to-the-minute integrated kitchen
  • Energy efficient bathroom and ensuite
  • Double garage

Linden Homes Yorkshire (part of Vistry Group and formerly Linden Homes East Yorkshire) regional sales manager Melanie Parker said: “A lot of visitors are inspired by show homes and do imagine themselves living there – which is a wonderful complement to our interior designers who take great care over themes and attention to detail.

“While we have had to change the way we have done business in recent weeks, we have maintained a high level of contact with customers, and many have shown an interest in the show homes around our developments from potential buyers who are looking for a move to somewhere beautiful but extremely low maintenance. Apart from the furniture and many of the soft furnishings, the show homes are sold as seen – which is very appealing to people who may have been forced by the pandemic to halt their search for a new home.

‘In addition, all the appliances are already installed, giving the owner a brand-new shiny kitchen to walk into – often seen as the hub of the home.

“Buying a show home is much easier than many people think – and there is a unique opportunity to own what is arguably the best positioned home on the development.”
