Keep The Autumn Blues At Bay With Stunning Show Home Launch In Blunham
29 Oct 2018

It may be autumn – but there are plenty of reasons not to go into hibernation in the Bedforshire village of Blunham, as a brand new development and show home are about to open their doors!

Linden Homes Midlands officially takes the wraps off its new Hastings Gardens development, stunning collection of three, four and five bedrooms homes, and its fabulous five-bedroom show home on November 16 - where anyone reserving during the weekend will receive free flooring.

Interest in the new homes is already gathering pace, and visitors to the development will be able to find out for themselves just what Hastings Gardens has to offer, as well as take a tour of the traditionally designed, detached Byrne.

An attractive family home, the Byrne is the perfect place in which to work, rest and play – with a light and airy kitchen/dining area with glazed doors opening out onto a south-facing garden the focal point of the ground floor.

A large living room and separate family room also create a sense of space that can be enjoyed by the whole family. In addition, two of the five bedrooms are ensuite.

However, even before the highly anticipated show home opens its doors, there is the opportunity for potential purchasers to beat the rush during a preceding ‘hard hat and wellies’ weekend on November 10-11.

This event for serious home hunters will allow potential buyers to reserve at pre-release prices, with Stamp Duty paid and flooring throughout, and reap the benefits of buying from plan:
to reserve their brand new home fresh from the drawing board.

These include:

  • Selecting a plot with a sought-after south facing garden
  • Choosing preferred taste in wall tiles and kitchen units in some instances
  • Having a blank canvas from which to plan a new home
  • New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient than their older counterparts.
  • 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection
  • Lower utility bills – new homes are designed to comply with the very latest government building regulations and are already fitted with up to date heating systems, excellent wall and loft insulations and double glazed windows.
  • New homes are six times more energy efficient than older style homes - a linden home generates over 60 per cent less CO2 emissions than older style homes meaning much lower energy bills and cost savings all round.
  • Virtually maintenance free homes – spend time on what you enjoy doing rather than what needs doing.

Situated just off the A1, Hastings Gardens will be built in an ideal location; surrounded by open fields and close to the River Ivel and River Great Ouse.

Residents can enjoy being within walking distance of a convenience store, pubs, a fish and chip shop and an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ lower school. And for anyone who enjoys cricket, the Blunham cricket ground is just a short walk away.

Meanwhile, Sandy is just three miles away, offering a further choice of amenities. Excellent access to the A1 means that Bedford, Stevenage and Milton Keynes are within easy each. Regular train services also run from Sandy railway station – four miles away – to Peterborough, Horsham and London Kings Cross.
