City Centre Living, Just 20 Minutes From London With A £9,250* Deposit
26 Oct 2012

Since its launch last year, Linden Homes’ Mosaic development in the heart of St Albans has proved something of a triumph: Its popularity has been evident with the launch and sale of each new phase of apartments. To date around 192 of the 276 new apartments have been sold – that’s almost 70% and still selling strongly.

With the launch of Serra – the fourth and penultimate Mosaic phase, Linden is releasing another 63 one and two bedroom apartments. These are expected to be extremely popular too, and are already being reserved off plan.

Each of these apartments has been built to the award winning high standards of Linden Homes (House Builder of the Year 2012) and designed with the company’s characteristically high internal specification. All the kitchens are fully fitted with integrated and guaranteed appliances and every two bedroom apartment has its own parking space and its own balcony.

But the high specification and superior build quality are only part of the story: What has also attracted so many buyers to Mosaic is its exceptional location. It is at the heart of this beautiful and historic city – a city that combines many open green spaces with lively areas of shops and restaurants. But crucially, St Albans station is a short walk away from Mosaic and, from there, St Pancras is just 20 minutes train journey away: So when you live at Mosaic, central London in less than an hour from your doorstep.

The onset of the recent recession and the sense of cautiousness that followed, has led some to think that it’s difficult at the moment to get a mortgage. But the truth is that, in terms of new build homes, this is just not the case. In fact, with its new NewBuy* scheme launched earlier this year, the Government, in conjunction with high street lenders, is positively encouraging people to get up on the property ladder or to move up the next rung too.

The NewBuy scheme is available at Mosaic – and means potential purchasers, not just first time buyers, may be able to buy a new home here – less than an hour from central London - with a 5% deposit, securing a 95% mortgage.
