Get The Best Of Both Worlds With A New Home In Commutable Northamptonshire
25 Jan 2016

With more and more house hunters looking for an acceptable work/life balance, Linden Homes Midlands has a range of new homes through Northamptonshire offering the best of both worlds.

A stunning selection of properties to meet a range of budgets and requirements in three popular towns around the region, means buyers are never too far away from the many East Midlands commutable locations.

A recent survey, looking at the time property buyers take to make a decision on purchasing a property, shows that around 32 per cent of people research any changes to their current commuter route and times.

Offering the best of both words, developments in the towns of Burton Latimer, Higham Ferrers and Brackley enjoy peaceful surroundings and green open spaces whilst being close to business centres like Northampton, Bedford and Milton Keynes.

The pretty town of Burton Latimer is home to the Centurion Grove development, comprising 33 high quality four-bedroom homes, many of which enjoy views of the Pocket Park and the River Ise. Over 60 per cent of the homes have now been sold.

Centurion Grove is well placed less than five miles from Kettering train station. The nearby cities of Northampton (18 miles) Bedford (22 miles) and Milton Keynes (35 miles) are also easily accessible by road.

Linden Homes has recently been granted planning permission for an additional 199 homes on nearby Higham Road, and anticipate a Spring 2016 launch.

The Bishops Grange development at Higham Ferrers offers 166 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes in terraced, semi-detached and detached styles. The Glinton show home gives visitors a feel of just what is on offer at the development, which is perfectly positioned within walking distance of the town centre and its many amenities.

Northampton and Bedford are around half an hour’s drive away.

Meanwhile, two stunning show homes are now open at Linden Homes’ newest Northamptonshire development, Carpenters Place, Brackley – made up of 139 two, three and four bedroom homes in terraced, semi-detached and detached styles.

Situated off Northampton Road, the location benefits from a friendly local community, good shops and leisure facilities and an excellent range of schools. The new homes are perfectly placed for commuters to Banbury and Bicester, both less than 12 miles away.

Linden Homes Midlands’ sales director Clare Phillips said: “The feedback we are increasingly getting from our customers is that they are looking for a new home in attractive, convenient locations which they can enjoy while still being close to their place of work.

“Our Northamptonshire developments tick all those boxes, allowing customers to enjoy time away from work with family or friends in pleasant surroundings.”
