Linden Launches New Homes In Gloucester
20 Feb 2012

Linden Homes is taking its first foray into house-building in Gloucester, and this is being showcased perfectly with the launch of Raikes Chase – a development of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, located on the outskirts of Hempstead Village. It is part of the huge ongoing regeneration of the Gloucester Docks, which is bringing a renewed sense of vibrancy to the area.

Perched overlooking the canal, these properties really do have to be seen to be believed, and you can envisage what life will be like living here, by taking a look around the fantastic new show home. This three-bedroom property has been lovingly designed to give you a real feel for these fantastic homes.

Adrian Bird, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes, comments: “We’re delighted to be launching our first-ever development in Gloucester, and the fact that it ties in with the regeneration of the local area is fantastic. The location is great – and we hope that the range of homes which we have on offer will mean that we have something for everyone, from first-time buyers through to families and downsizers.

Added to this, the location is second to none: situated in a popular suburb of Gloucester on the Gloucester and Sharpness canal, the development has excellent road links to the M5, providing easy access to Bristol and the southwest, as well as north to Cheltenham and the Midlands. The city centre is also just a short walk away, along the canal side path. Gloucester has its own railway station, on the main line to Paddington and a small airport at Staverton. International airports at Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff are within just an hour’s drive.

For shopping, Gloucester Quays is a large retail outlet which has transformed the local area; here, you’ll find a large eco-friendly Sainsbury’s and a new hotel. There is also a host of restaurants, cafés and leisure clubs locally.

For families, there is a selection of primary and secondary schools in the area, while, for the sportier among us, the GL1 leisure centre is right in the heart of the city.

To find out more about these brand new homes in Gloucester, pay a visit to the show home at Raikes Chase launching this Saturday from 10am. Hereafter the development will be open Friday–Monday, 10am–5pm. Alternatively, contact the sales team: 01452 412791
