Downsizing Earlier On In Life At Froyle Park
08 Dec 2015

The national trend for downsizing is taking off at Froyle Park where the development of new homes for sale in the Hampshire village of Upper Froyle is ticking a lot of boxes for househunters.

Figures released earlier this year by Lloyds Bank showed that 52 per cent of UK homeowners who are planning to sell their property in the next three years would like to move to a smaller house.

That demand is being met locally by award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes with its choice of three, four, five and six-bedroom homes at Froyle Park. The mix of community, rural tranquillity and trouble-free home-owning is proving particularly popular.

Andrew Reynolds, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South, said: “We have welcomed a number of buyers in their 50s and 60s who want to downsize but don’t want to compromise on quality – that’s where we’ve been able to make the difference.

“We’ve noticed a trend in people thinking about downsizing a lot earlier in life – in their 50s and 60s – wanting to future-proof and enjoy their next chapter rather than leave it too late to make a move.”

“As well as the quality specification our homes are known for, Froyle Park in particular is part of a strong local community in a beautiful part of the country. Add in the lower energy bills and easy maintenance of a new-build house and that’s a lot of downsizing boxes ticked.”

Each home comes with turfed gardens and integrated kitchen appliances as standard and, for peace of mind, a 10-year NHBC warranty and Linden Homes’ two-year customer care warranty.

A village-style development inspired by Hampshire’s traditional architecture, Froyle Park is set to include a local shop and a series of open green spaces, including a large meadow at the south of the site.

At the development’s heart is the sensitive refurbishment of Burnham House into a set of townhouses centred round a quiet, landscaped quadrangle.

Larger homes are also a feature of Froyle Park, with luxuriously well-appointed four and five bedroom detached houses.

For customers who want to act fast, Part Exchange takes out the hassle of finding a buyer and property chains. After choosing a property, your current home is valued by local estate agents and an offer made.

Although peaceful, Upper Froyle is not isolated. Shopping, entertainment and dining are available in Farnham, Basingstoke and Reading, while the glorious South Downs National Park rolls out to the south. There is quick access to the A31 and Alton train station is nearby with direct services to London Waterloo in just under an hour and 10 minutes.
