Lights, Camera, Action: Empire Court Basks In The Spotlight
30 Oct 2015

Borehamwood, home to some of the most famous movie studios in Britain, is now also home to a brand new collection of beautiful Linden homes.

The homes – known as Empire Court - made their debut on 24th October, when the spotlight fell on the new three storey three bedroom townhouses.

Elstree TV and film studios is just minutes away from Empire Court and scenes from some of the most famous films ever produced were shot at studios in Borehamwood. Once known as the Hollywood of Britain, Borehamwood witnessed the creation of parts of Star Wars; the Indiana Jones films; The Dam Busters and The Shining to name a few.

Empire Court is perfectly situated for reaching the City and beyond thanks to efficient and regular rail services and good road links. Elstree and Borehamwood station offers rail services into London St Pancras in less than 30 minutes, whilst the M1 and A1 are within easy reach.

Brand new homes, in this fantastic location do not come up every day. Simon Pendlebury, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes Chiltern explains that if you haven’t considered a new home in Hertfordshire within close proximity to London, a home at Empire Court could be right up your street.

“Often when you buy an older property, you may have to spend time redecorating or spend weekends doing DIY, utility bills can often be higher than a new build home too. Empire Court offers a selection of high specification homes all with our 2 year Linden warranty and 10 year NHBC warranty. The development is superbly located and we have already seen a high level of interest.”

Empire Court is a collection of 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and 3 & 4 bedroom homes, and the Government-led Help to Buy scheme is available.

The Help to Buy scheme is available for the purchase of new homes priced below £600,000, you need just a 5% deposit and you can borrow, in the form of an equity loan, 20% from the Government. That means you only need to secure a 75% mortgage from your bank or building society. Apartments to be released in 2016.

To find out more about the homes making their Borehamwood debut, please call 02080 039 690 or have a look at the Linden Homes’ website.

The sales and marketing suite is now open every day from 10am to 5pm (4pm on Fridays).
