Launching This Weekend: The Highly Anticipated New Phase At Graylingwell Park
01 Jun 2012

With all homes in the first phase at Graylingwell Park now sold, Linden Homes is inviting prospective purchasers to the launch of Nightingales, the latest homes to be available at Graylingwell Park, on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June from 10 am to 5 pm.

The highly anticipated new range of homes offers a selection of newly built apartments and houses and some of the original buildings are being restored and converted to provide a great range of stunning apartments and some unusual two-bedroom houses; with such a good choice, there’s something to suit most lifestyles.

Set within 85 acres of parkland, Graylingwell Park is less than a mile from Chichester city centre. This award-winning scheme, which is being developed jointly by Linden Homes, Affinity Sutton and the Homes & Communities Agency, is the UK’s largest carbon neutral development.  High quality, energy-efficient homes are set in glorious surroundings with nature trails and plenty of green open spaces. With environmental sustainability and community at its heart, a new community garden has just opened for residents to grow their own fruit and vegetables, with everyone who takes part benefitting from the produce.  There will also be an orchard, farm shop and community hall.

The homes in the first phase have sold well and new residents are already starting to see the benefits of living on a green development such as retired couple, Tony and Sue Webster.  Sue says: “We fell in love with Graylingwell Park straight away.  The houses are a very good size and excellent quality, we love the idea of a green lifestyle and the location to Chichester is ideal.”

Brad and Emma Ainsworth have recently bought a three-bedroom shared-ownership house at Graylingwell Park.  Emma, who stays at home to bring up their three small boys, appreciates Graylingwell Park’s glorious surroundings. She says: “The area is wonderful, it’s very green and there are lots of nature trails, fields and parks – it’s great for taking the kids out on their bikes or to play football.”

The new phase comprises one and two-bedroom apartments through to three and four-bedroom houses.  In-keeping with the site’s history, each converted building will keep its original name; Eastergate House, Chilgrove House, Bamber House and Amberley House – all of which were former wards within the original Graylingwell Hospital.

Natalie Flint, sales director at Linden Homes, comments: “We’re very pleased our new residents are settling in and enjoying the green lifestyle.  We are very much looking forward to the launch of Nightingales; it’s great to be able to offer such variety of homes; especially within just one phase of a development.

Available for private sale through Linden Homes, new and converted apartments range from 522 to 1150 sq ft.  Unusually, there’s also a selection of converted two-bedroom houses.

Coming soon is a selection of homes available on a shared ownership or part buy/part rent basis from Affinity Sutton are a selection of newly built three-bedroom houses and one and two-bedroom apartments – both new and converted.

Yvette Ruggins, sales director at Affinity Sutton, comments: “This is an extremely rare opportunity for our purchasers; these are the first refurbished homes we’ve had available through shared ownership for over three years, so it really is an unusual opportunity to be able to buy a home like this in such an historic part of Chichester.”
