When one development in an area markedly outsells others that enjoy the same benefits of an enviable location, property hunters will always be asking: what makes it so special?
That’s precisely the case at Connect in Haywards Heath where Housebuilder of the Year Linden Homes has been experiencing a surge in demand for its mix of quality apartments and houses.
Since its superb collection went on the market last year about half the homes have already been sold, outstripping the competition and drawing interest from a wide range of admiring buyers.
But a trip to the development soon shows the reason for the popularity isn’t such a mystery – more than 55 households so far are appreciating the magnetic mix of benefits Connect offers in its two and three-bedroom houses and one and two-bedroom apartments.
They have enjoyed the generous space that offers such good value, the quality of the specifications, the high standard of fixtures and fittings, floors and worktops, plus the landscaped surroundings and gardens.
The properties are traditionally built and come in a varied range to suit everyone. Without exception Linden Homes includes carpets, white goods, and incentives over and above those offered anywhere else.
And the help Linden Homes offers its buyers to give them that extra boost towards buying their dream home has also been appreciated; whether it’s the Step Up 95 per cent mortgage, Deposit Assist or the quick and easy Part Exchange scheme.
The mix of purchasers has included a fair share of first-time buyers, as well as those looking for a quality property for down-sizing, and also investors keen to make the most of Connect’s great location and attractive specifications.
With only half the homes left and word spreading fast about the excellence and good value on offer, people considering Connect shouldn’t delay or they might find themselves left behind.
Just 36 miles south of London and 15 miles north of Brighton, Haywards Heath is ideal for commuting. The railway station is a major stopping point on the Brighton mainline and good motorway access makes getting out and about for business (and pleasure) really easy.
But staying closer to home is just as enjoyable as the town boasts shops and restaurants galore to suit a range of tastes, from cosy pubs to trendy bars, and a great selection of high street stores.
And to escape the hustle and bustle of town life is Munster Green, a beautiful conservation area with its ornamental flower beds or Borde Hill Garden, just outside the town, with over 200 acres of superb gardens.
If you prefer to keep active, there’s the Olympos Leisure Centre with its two pools, sports hall, squash courts and gym, while Victoria Park in the town centre has a children’s play area, paddling pool, tennis courts, and Xtreme Action area for BMXing, blading and boarding.
Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll said: “We’re proud and confident of the excellence of our homes – and by the look of these sales it seem that buyers are also convinced of the quality, value and location that Connect in particular is showcasing.
“The properties have already been going fast and don’t show any sign of slowing so as word spreads even further I’d expect them to continue to be snapped up. I’d urge house-hunters not to get left behind and come and see for themselves why Connect has been causing such a stir.”
