Life At The Mallards: A Strong Community In A Beautiful Location
23 Jan 2012

Close to the New Forest, flanking the edge of Totton Marshes and overlooking the Lower Test Nature Reserve, The Mallards is a small development of attractive three and four bedroom homes and townhouses near the bustling Hampshire town of Totton.

It’s just a short walk to Totton from The Mallards in Testwood Place so there’s very easy access to the town’s fine selection of local shops and the local health and leisure centre. The area also has several well regarded infant, junior and secondary schools, colleges and universities

Although it’s a new development, the proximity of The Mallards to Totton gives it a strong sense of community. Each of the houses has its own garden, its own parking and most of the homes have their own driveway.

The Mallards is perfectly located to make the commuter’s life an easy one: The train to Southampton Central from Totton takes just ten minutes; from here you can catch the train directly to London Waterloo in an hour and thirty minutes. Direct trains get you to Bournemouth from Totton in forty minutes, to Poole in an hour and Portsmouth in just over an hour.

By car, The Mallards at Totton is easily accessible too: It lies close to the M271 and the M27 (which leads to the M3). For more exotic or far-flung destinations, Southampton Airport is less than ten miles away.

The new show home at The Mallards is now available for viewing. And should you need some help purchasing your new home, Linden Homes can offer either its Part Exchange* scheme or its Assisted Move* scheme.

Part Exchange is the ideal scheme if you are trying to move up the housing ladder and need to sell your existing home. Our scheme means that Linden Homes becomes your guaranteed buyer: We help you buy and sell in one easy move; we carry out valuations and make you an offer within seven days; there are no chains to break and no estate agents’ fees to pay

Our Assisted Move* scheme is slightly different. This scheme offers practical assistance for those who are struggling to sell their existing home: We deal with the estate agents on your behalf, and pay their fees; we’ll help you get the best price for your old home and we can help you secure your new home today.

For more information about either of these Linden Homes’ incentive schemes, or to discover more about life at The Mallards, please visit our sales and marketing suite, which is open from Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5pm. (4pm on Fridays). Alternatively, you can give us a call on 0845 6035461.
