Demand For New Homes In Northamptonshire Evident As Customers Buy Off Plan
18 May 2016

Buying a new home from plan can take courage and confidence – but with it comes the satisfying feeling that you have selected the perfect plot for you.

Home hunters in Northamptonshire have been doing just that, where a show home opening and a number of off-plan reservations are being celebrated at Linden Homes Midlands’ development in Burton Latimer.

A number of the homes at the 199-home Buckby Grange development at Higham Road have already been reserved off plan.

Buckby Grange will comprise a collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes in terraced, semi-detached and detached styles.

And among the customers to snap up a brand new home from the drawing board are Mick and Leona Pickersgill, who have reserved a four-bedroom from plan.

Mick works for Infrastructure Gateway, the company installing the water infrastructure at the development. He said: “Because of this project I am aware of the quality of finish of these properties. We are very happy with our choice of plot, and the customer service journey has run very smoothly and we have been kept informed every step of the way.”

The couple are relocating to the area from Sheffield, and are hoping to move into their plush new home in August.

Leona added: “Burton Latimer is a great location for us in terms of being on the edge of a great market town with excellent road links to major towns and cities via the A1 and M1.”

Mick and Leona were among guests and visitors to the development’s recent show home opening – a new design recently added to the Linden Homes portfolio.

The four-bedroom detached Claremont is the ideal home for the busy, modern family. The spacious ground floor comprise open plan kitchen / dining room, separate living room, large entrance hall and family room leading into a study, making it perfect to work, rest and play.

The first floor comprises all four generously sized bedrooms, including a dressing area and ensuite facility to the master bedroom.

The development will share the locational benefits of Linden Homes’ existing Centurion Grove site off Kingfisher Way, which is almost sold out – with Burton Latimer being well placed just five miles from Kettering railway station, where journeys into the capital can take less than an hour.

By road, the commuter towns of Northampton and Bedford are just over half an hour away.
