From St Michael's Convent To Claydon House
27 Feb 2015

The beautiful old Grade II Victorian building that was once St Michael’s Convent in Waterlooville is about to start the next chapter of its life.

The old convent at Linden Homes’ St Michael’s Place development - renamed Claydon House - has been carefully refurbished to create just seventeen unique apartments, which are being launched this month.

Linden Homes is also preparing the show apartment, which will also be opened in the next few weeks. Visitors to the marketing suite and show home will be able to get an idea of how carefully the Linden Homes’ architects have worked to create these extraordinary apartments, all of which have their own character and quirky design features.

This is an opportunity to buy a small piece of Waterlooville’s history whilst gaining a beautiful, contemporary home. Tina Chalk, the marketing manager at Linden Homes Southern says interest in these unique homes is expected to be high:

“Refurbishments like this are few and far between. When they do come up, they sell very fast. There is a great deal of appeal in buying a beautiful, contemporary apartment that’s inside an old building. You have all the character and atmosphere of the old, combined with all the convenience and style of the new.”

“These homes would be perfect for professionals or maybe downsizers who would like a conveniently located home situated in lovely, landscaped grounds and each apartment comes with its own parking space.”

St Michael’s Place also has a selection of houses available, including three and four bedroom show homes for sale.

Currently, to help you to move to St Michael’s Place, Linden Homes is offering the Help to Buy Scheme and its own Part Exchange Scheme.

Under the Part Exchange Scheme, Linden Homes becomes your guaranteed buyer and takes on the task of having your existing property valued and marketed. So you don’t have to go through the rigours of selling your own property. Linden Homes takes care of that: You don’t have to arrange viewings or pay any estate agents’ fees.

For more information on the Part Exchange Scheme, Help to Buy, to register your interest in the Claydon House apartments at St Michael’s Place or to find out more about the three and four bedroom homes, please visit the Linden Homes’ website. Alternatively you can call 0844 488 3005 for more details.
