First Time Buyers In Oxfordshire Quick To Pitch In On Linden Homes Development
13 Dec 2017

Linden Homes Thames Valley is now over 70% sold out at The Pitchings, a collection of two, three, four and five-bedroom family homes in the sought-after village of Steventon, in Oxfordshire.

The homes on the development, which are selling quickly after constant demand, having proven increasingly popular with first time buyers, with many utilising the government-backed Help to Buy initiative to secure their dream home with the housebuilder.

Linden Homes is now selling the third phase of homes on the development, which come as a welcome addition to the development and the Steventon area as a whole. The Linden Homes team has been thrilled to see first time buyers taking advantage of the idyllic location and the great incentives on offer, with almost 40% of purchases to date on the development by first time buyers.

Suzanne Irons, Sales and Marketing Director for Linden Homes Thames Valley, commented: "We are really pleased to be helping first time buyers on to the housing ladder and helping to make their dreams of their own home, a reality. There is no denying that we are within a housing crisis in the UK currently, and we are proud to be doing our bit to combat that by providing high quality family homes in well sought-after and perfectly positioned areas.

“The influx of interest of first time buyers at The Pitchings is a testament to the Linden Homes mission to provide something for everyone on all of our developments. What’s more, we are also seeing interest from families and downsizers here at The Pitchings, and this mix of purchaser is already baring the fruits of a fully inclusive and welcoming community.

“We would advise all interested househunters to make contact sooner rather than later to find out more about how we can help them secure their dream home – all before Christmas!”

The newest collection of homes at The Pitchings offer something for everyone – not just first time buyers. Linden Homes is pleased to be offering incentives for those looking to get onto, or indeed up, the housing ladder, with the government-backed Help to Buy scheme available on many plots, as well as Linden Homes’ Assisted Move and Part Exchange initiatives.

Located between the historic market towns of Abingdon and Wantage, Steventon is a well-established community with a primary school, shops, several popular pubs and restaurants, a village hall and recreation ground, and an award-winning bakery.

The Pitchings offers a semi-rural lifestyle – the perfect combination of city and countryside living, as the development is within easy reach of the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside but also has excellent transport connections for Didcot, Abingdon and Oxford, London and Reading.

The show home and sales centre at The Pitchings is open Thursday-Monday from 10am to 5pm - alternatively to find out more about the homes and incentives available at The Pitchings and other Linden Homes developments around the Thames Valley region, contact us.
