It's Easy To Participate In Walk To School Week When You Buy At Oaklands
13 May 2016

As walk to school week gets underway (May 16 – 20) parents wanting an easy school run within walking distance of good schools need to look no further than Oaklands in Horsham.

The collection of three and four-bedroom family homes from award-winning Linden Homes are available now and have already proved very popular for families with school aged children. Each home comes with the reassurance of a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty.

With over ten primary or secondary schools located within a three mile radius, the school run will no longer be a tiresome mission. Of the nearby schools, five are less than a 20 minute walk away meaning you won’t just be able to participate in walk to school week but walk to school every day.

Susan Whiting, marketing manager at Linden Homes South said: “Walk to School week is a fantastic initiative but walking to school every day is often not realistic for most parents and their children. However, the homes at Oaklands offer such a great range of schools within walking distance, including infant, primary and secondary schools, meaning there will be a school on your the doorstep whatever age your child is.

“These homes have been sought-after by families with young and teenage children and the proximity of the schools has definitely been a draw. We’d encourage anyone interested in homes at Oaklands to get in touch to find out more.”

Situated in the popular market town of Horsham, Oaklands is only 31 miles from London. Those wanting to commute to the capital will particularly appreciate its position, less than a mile from the railway station and direct links into London by road.

The pretty landscaping surrounding the homes is another attraction for househunters considering buying in Horsham as it provides plenty of space for children to stretch their legs in addition to the private garden that comes with all homes.

Help to Buy is available on all homes at Oaklands priced up to £600,000, buyers with deposits as low as five per cent can take advantage of the scheme. The deposit combines with a government loan of 20 per cent (interest free for five years) to leave buyers requiring a more attainable mortgage of 75 per cent.

To help even further, the three-bedroom townhouse, The Hawking, also comes with the added bonus of having your stamp duty paid.

For those with a home to sell, our Part Exchange scheme could help. If you are moving up the housing ladder, but don't have a buyer for your existing home, Linden Homes can be your guaranteed buyer, meaning it’s easy to sell in one quick, easy, hassle-free move, with no chain, no delays and no estate agents fees to pay.

All homes available are blessed with contemporary architecture and open-plan interiors thoughtfully set up for modern family life. Each benefits from a garage, en-suite master bedroom and a cloakroom or bathroom on each floor.
