Seeing is believing at Montford Place where househunters have been rushing to investigate this hidden gem just a short stroll from the River Thames in Lower Sunbury, Surrey.
After months of anticipation, the site opened on Saturday October 12th for people to view the high quality collection of traditional three, four and five-bedroom Georgian-style houses and two-bedroom apartments from award-wining Linden Homes.
Three homes were reserved on the day, with buyers showing a keen interest in the off-plan options.
“It’s a very exciting moment when we open a site for househunters to walk in and see it for themselves,” said Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll. “We’re really pleased with such a warm response.
“Montford Place is delightfully tucked away between the village and the river. It has a special mix of Georgian-style architecture, a handy position close to bustling Walton-on-Thames and a pretty setting, so for these homes seeing really is believing.
“Buyers have included several down-sizers keen to find a relaxing spot but with London on their doorstep. Commuters will appreciate the excellent transport links, and the popular location will be a draw for anyone.”
The new neighbourhood will enjoy the reassurance of being a gated community, surrounded by the friendly atmosphere of Lower Sunbury: a riverside community dotted with green spaces, and park, shops and eateries.
The government-backed Help to Buy scheme is eligible on homes worth up to £600,000 to assist househunters with a deposit as small as five per cent secure a place of their own – whether they are first-timers or moving further up the property ladder.
In common with all Linden Homes’ developments, each Montford Place property comes with integrated kitchen appliances as standard plus a 10-year NHBC warranty for peace of mind, as well as a two-year customer care warranty.
The development rests within a conservation area near a long sweeping bend of the River Thames on the one hand, while on the other is the village peace of Lower Sunbury which is so rare within the M25.
In fact, Lower Sunbury occupies a unique position as the first true riverside village on the north bank of the Thames travelling upstream from London.
But it’s still very well connected. Junction 1 of the M3 lies 1.5 miles away with its national road links and access to the M25, while for global destinations Heathrow Airport is just a 20-minute drive away.
Those lucky enough to secure a taste of quiet riverside life will have the convenience of the capital on their doorstep too. Rail routes into London Waterloo from Sunbury train station can take as little as 46 minutes while the direct service from nearby Walton-on-Thames is just 30 minutes.
Lower Sunbury is in the borough of Spelthorne which neighbours the genteel Richmond upon Thames. Slightly further afield are the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew and Surrey’s rolling countryside to the south. Golf courses scatter the surrounding landscape, and Kempton Park Racecourse is nearby.
For current home-owners Linden Homes’ Part Exchange scheme offers one quick, hassle-free agreement that takes out estate agents’ fees and the problems with chains which can scupper even the most secure-looking move.
For those who want a home with a touch of their own personality ready for when they move in, the Linden Homes Enhance service offers a face-to-face consultation to help design rooms and choose upgrades.
