Flourish In The Sea Air And Sense Of Community Of Lorton Gardens
23 Aug 2013

Lorton Gardens in Weymouth is beginning to flourish. The first occupants of Linden Homes’ lovely development, close to Lorton Meadows nature reserve, are now moving into the beautifully designed and high specification homes which have been built on Lorton Lane, just a few miles from the seaside town of Weymouth.

Now that these first homes are occupied, the whole development is taking on an entirely new atmosphere. Signs of life, such as cars in the drive and pots of plants in the front gardens, are starting to appear.

And with the arrival of the first Lorton Gardens’ homeowners comes the first hint of the sense of community that will eventually exist here.

Tina Chalk, marketing manager for Linden Homes Southern says it is fascinating to watch a new development come alive:

“As soon as first new residents start to move in, the whole place takes on a different character. What was a site with new houses begins to have a heart. As the curtains and blinds go up and furniture goes in, the houses become homes and the sense of community begins to grow. It is an interesting process to see.”

While the site is quiet and semi rural it is by no means cut off: The main bus route from Weymouth to Dorchester runs very close by and Weymouth is just a few minutes away by road.

It is around half a mile away from Upwey railway station which offers regular services to London Waterloo (around 3 hours away), Bournemouth and Southampton, and Bristol Temple Meads (about a 2.5 hour journey).

The major A35, A353 and A354 routes from Weymouth, link to motorway networks to the east, the west and the north.

The sense of community in an attractive development like Lorton Gardens is certainly a major draw for potential buyers; so too is the knowledge that a new home comes complete with the latest security and energy saving measures, as well as brand new guaranteed appliances in the fully integrated kitchen.
