The popularity which greeted Kings Square, a high quality collection of new family homes in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, has culminated in a race to secure the very last one.
Within months of the launch, all but the show home have been bought by eager househunters attracted by the quiet cul-de-sac location and characterful, well-appointed properties.
The quick sales are no surprise: as the housing market gets busier properties don’t stay on the market long particularly when they boast good schools, short walks to the riverside, green parks and a quick stroll to the railway station where regular direct trains reach London Waterloo in just 30 minutes.
The best has been saved until last, however, in the form of ‘The Tudor’ show home – a traditional three-bedroom semi-detached house boasting two dedicated parking spaces, a fully integrated kitchen and an en suite to the master bedroom.
The property’s 1,032 square feet of space, with flooring throughout, opens out into the turfed garden via French windows which add to the light and airy feel of a home stylishly scattered with quality fixtures and fittings.
Upstairs the three bedrooms enjoy a family bathroom with Roca white sanitary ware, while downstairs a cloakroom is next to a generous open plan living and dining room.
As with every Linden Homes property, buyers get peace of mind thanks to a 10-year NHBC build warranty and two-year customer care warranty as standard. Homes also feature the latest technology and appliances to help deliver lower energy bills.
Kings Square itself is just a few miles from the glorious Hampton Court Palace and comprises a superb mix of two-storey three and four-bedroom semi-detached houses.
To make an even more attractive prospect, Kings Square is also the only collection in the area offering the government-backed Help to Buy scheme enabling house-hunters with a deposit as low as five per cent the opportunity to secure their dream home.
Help to Buy works by the government providing an equity loan of up to 20 per cent of the value of any new-build home worth up to a maximum of £600,000. This can be repaid at any time or when the home is sold, and is interest free for the first five years.
With the equity loan added to their deposit as low as five per cent, buyers are in the easier position of only needing to agree a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society.
It’s a simple route to an enviable lifestyle: Walton-on-Thames has a variety of modern shops, cafes, restaurants and cinema, and is close to a picturesque stretch of the River Thames, lined by an enticing mix of pubs, riverside parks, sports clubs, boat trips and more.
The town centre also boats The Heart, an exciting new retail and residential complex combining top high street fashion with delicious, alfresco dining. Three golf courses are close, plus a leisure centre and private gym.
The fun and glamour of Sandown Racecourse is nearby, as is the splendour of Hampton Court Palace, and the M25 is reached by a short drive. By road, central London is only 19 miles away and lively Kingston Upon Thames only seven.
Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll said: “Whoever snaps up the last home at Kings Square will delighted at its location, transport links, quality and value. I’d encourage anyone who’s interested to visit as soon as they can.
“As well as offering a blank canvas to the first family to move in, each Linden home enjoys the reassurance and on-going support that comes with buying new, as well as lower energy bills.
“The Help to Buy scheme has been giving vital support both for first-time buyers and people moving up the ladder to secure their dream home. We’re delighted to be offering it here and are happy to talk visitors through the simple steps.”
