Landguard Place Residents Begin Their New Chapter In The Heart Of Southampton
24 Jun 2013

Landguard Place is the latest chapter in the story of Park Centrale, Linden Homes’ peaceful development in the heart of Southampton and this week marks the beginning of a new chapter too, for the new residents who are moving in to these beautiful apartments and duplexes.

Landguard Place is, in every way, unusual. The location is unusually convenient. It is within very easy walking distance of the shops and boutiques of Bedford Place - but is set back from the road on one of the city’s residential streets.

The design and layout of the homes have been carefully thought out so that virtually no two apartments or duplexes are the same. There is a good selection of one, two and three bedroom homes arranged over four floors and each one has its own character.

All of the two and three bedroom homes come with their own parking space and most of them have a terrace, balcony or pergola.

Mark Docherty is the sales and marketing director at Linden Homes Southern:

“Our three bedroom duplexes at Landguard Place, based on the ground floor, have their own front door onto the pavement. When you are inside the space available over the two floors has the feel of a three bedroom house. It’s a clever design.”

All these new homes at Landguard Place qualify for the Government’s new Help to Buy* scheme announced in the last Budget.

This Government backed equity scheme enables buyers to purchase a new home with just 5% deposit and a 20% Government equity loan – a loan that can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years and it’s interest free for five years.

And it has already been taken up with enthusiasm by Linden Homes’ buyers.

Trevor Lepley bought his new four bedroom property from Linden Homes using Help to Buy – and was one of the first in the country to do so. He says he simply couldn’t have managed it without the scheme:

“There is no way I could have afforded a four bedroom house without Help to Buy. I secured a mortgage of 3.09% and my new home is only £90 more a month than the rent I was paying out for the two bedroom flat I was in previously - a flat that was a third of the size of my new house.”

The new show home at Landguard Place is now open and available to view. This home is a three bedroom duplex – arranged over the ground and first floors and has been finished to the usual very high specification associated with all Linden Homes. To see the show home for yourself, please visit the sales and marketing suite on Carlton Road. It is open from 10am to 5pm daily (4pm on Fridays).

If you would like to make an appointment first, or just need more information on Help to Buy or more details of the homes available at Landguard Place, please call 0845 602 3892.
