Help to Buy an astonishing Aspens home
09 Mar 2019

With a new release of properties at Linden Homes’ popular Birtley development – The Aspens - selling extremely quickly, house hunters looking for a stylish home with an extra touch of quality, will need to act fast.

These simply stunning and unique plots will not be available for long, but through Help to Buy, a move to an amazing Aspens home could be much more affordable than many may think.

Sales Director, Tracy Iles, says: “Those who think that buying a brand new property would be too much of a stretch financially, should pay us a visit and find out how Help to Buy* has enabled thousands of people to secure their dream home.

“Available to both first time buyers – looking to escape the rental market – and to people who already own a property, the government backed scheme requires buyers to put down a deposit of 5% of the property value and provides a 20% equity loan towards the remaining cost - on which no fees or interest are payable for up to five years. The purchaser still owns 100% of the home.

“This dramatically reduces the deposit that a potential buyer requires to buy. For example, to purchase the Aspen’s magnificent four bedroomed plot 44 Beech - a deposit of just under £15,000 could be enough to proceed*. Our friendly sales team will be more than happy to discuss how this initiative could help you to get moving into a brand new Linden Home.”

Boasting a fresh and modern appearance - with design-lead architectural features such as high performance floor to ceiling windows - The Beautiful Beech is a state of the art family home.

A front door, with a sheltered surround, opens to the hallway which leads to a spacious living room - with innovative corner window - and a separate kitchen come dining or family area, with contemporary fixtures, fittings and bi-folding doors to the garden. These draw in the natural light, creating a seamless transition between the inside and outside living spaces. The ground floor also has a utility room, downstairs WC, a storage cupboard and an integral garage.

The first floor is home to a large master bedroom with extensive glazing and ensuite shower room. The Beech also has two further generous double bedrooms, a fourth bedroom - which could be used as a children’s playroom or home office – and a luxurious family bathroom.

Hot off the heels of its popular and quick selling Sycamores development nearby, Linden Homes is creating a new and exciting selection of three and four bedroomed homes at The Aspens - the first phase of which, is already almost sold out.

Contemporary in design, built to an impeccably high standard and with superb transport links to both Newcastle and Durham, The Aspens delivers all the features, comforts and convenience expected by the modern family.

Overlooked by the iconic Angel of the North, the development is also close to local schools, shops and amenities.

The exceptional semi-detached, three bedroomed Elder, is a wonderful family home. Plot 61 is priced £219,995 and if purchased through Help to Buy*, a deposit of just under £11,000 could be enough to proceed.

A lengthy hallway leads to the downstairs WC and cloakroom while, off to the right, is the generous living room with a stylish feature corner window. A second door on the right of the hall, reveals the spacious and enticing open plan kitchen come dining area which – like all homes at The Aspens – comes complete with fully integrated, high quality appliances. Bi-folding doors also offer views and access to a private rear garden.

A turned staircase leads to the first floor where the master bedroom, with ensuite shower, can be found. There are two further bedrooms and a deluxe family bathroom, which - once again - benefits from the inclusion of the very finest fixtures, fittings and finishes. Further storage space can also be found on the landing.
