Linden Homes Brings New Homes To Godalming Riverside Haven
27 Aug 2013

A stunning collection of new homes in Godalming is coming soon at a riverside development boasting tree-lined streets of high-quality traditional properties.

Fittingly christened Riverside, the new addition to the popular Surrey market town will deliver a leafy neighbourhood of two, three and four-bedroom houses as well as two-bedroom apartments.

Award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes is bringing the brick, wood and render properties to the banks of the River Way from where the development looks north across the water towards open meadows.

To the south, a few steps over the road take walkers into the kind of rolling countryside for which Surrey is famous. Golf courses dot a verdant landscape crisscrossed with woodland, open fields and footpaths.

Godalming is a historic market town which counts among its community one of the leading independent schools in the world, Charterhouse. Summer brings concerts at the bandstand in the Phillips Memorial Park off bustling High Street.

Riverside will be planted with more than 100 new trees to shade residents during hot days and access to the banks of the River Wey will be ensured. A play park will entertain youngsters.

For getting further afield, the A3 runs north-south and Guildford is less than 20 minutes away by car. Godalming station is just over a mile away from where regular services run direct into London Waterloo in as little as 46 minutes.

In common with all Linden Homes’ developments, each Riverside property comes with integrated kitchen appliances as standard plus a 10-year NHBC warranty for peace of mind, as well as a two-year customer care warranty.

Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll said: “People who secure a home at Riverside will enjoy a beautiful, leafy and green location where the river flows by a very special collection of quality, traditional homes.

“Godalming is a delightful old market town and I can see Riverside being a very sought after new neighbourhood when the first homes are released onto the market. I’d urge househunters to register with us so they’re at the front of the queue.”

The homes are also eligible for the government-backed Help to Buy scheme in which househunters with a deposit as small as five per cent can secure a place of their own – whether they are first-timers or moving further up the property ladder.

It works by the government lending 20 per cent of the value of the property through an equity loan which can be repaid at any time or on the sale of the home. It means buyers only need to come up with a 75 per cent mortgage on top of their deposit.

Alternatively, for current home-owners Linden Homes’ Part Exchange scheme offers one quick, hassle-free agreement that takes out estate agents’ fees and the problems with chains which can scupper even the most secure-looking move.

Within seven days eligible buyers will have a valuation on their property made by three local estate agents and a cash offer made, as long as their current property is not more than 70 per cent of the value of what you want to buy. The only thing left to do then is set a move-in date and get packing.
