Local House Hunters To Buy Off Plan At Saffron View Preview
18 May 2017

Saffron Walden house hunters are being offered the opportunity to buy off-plan at the area’s largest new housing development, Saffron View, ahead of the site’s official completion.

After announcing its role in the development earlier this year, Linden Homes Eastern has organised a preview launch at its nearby Thaxted site, Meadow Gardens, while work on the 200 homes off Radwinter Road continues.

Buyers will be able view the Meadow Gardens show home, which will provide a vivid impression of a property at Saffron View, along with a guided tour led by the sales team. A selection of the Saffron Walden homes are now being sold off-plan from the Meadow Gardens marketing suite until buyers are able to view homes at Saffron View.

There will be four two beds, 32 three beds, 66 four beds and 18 five beds for sale at Saffron Walden, with a mix of 11 of the four and five bed homes available to house hunters in the first release from this new development.

New residents at Saffron View will be able to benefit from the rural surroundings, whilst living a commutable distance from London thanks to excellent transport links. The development is just two miles from Audley End train station with direct services to London Liverpool Street. All three of Linden Homes’ exclusive financial incentives will also be available on selected properties.

Roseanne Bullen, sales and marketing manager at Linden Homes Eastern, commented: “While building work continues on the properties at Saffron View, we’re fortunate enough to give buyers an insight into what their future home may look like thanks to the information available at Meadow Gardens.

“All those who visit the show home will be given an exclusive tour from the sales team and have all of their questions answered, as well as the chance to secure their new home.

Capped at £600,000, the Help to Buy initiative allows purchasers to buy a property with only a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage. The Part Exchange scheme sees Linden Homes become their customers’ guaranteed cash buyer, while the Assisted Move option means Linden Homes will handle all correspondence with the estate agents and will pay the estate agents’ fees.

Roseanne added: “With the range of financial incentives on offer, we would urge anyone interested to come down and have their questions answered before the homes are sold. Be sure to call ahead as viewings are only available by appointment.”

All those who purchase off-plan will have the option to select a plot with a number of benefits, including:

  • Selecting a plot with a south facing garden
  • Choosing preferred wall tiles and flooring
  • Choosing preferred kitchen units and worktops
  • Having a blank canvas from which to plan a new home

Furthermore a new build offers added bonuses to buyers, such as:

  • Lower utility bills and reduced maintenance bills
  • New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient than their older counterparts
  • 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection
