Make Your Way Out Of London - Head For The Island
26 Feb 2015

Linden Homes has launched its latest phase of the very popular Nash Mills Wharf development near King’s Langley and St Albans called The Island. Following the launch earlier this month, the first 16 apartments all sold within 3 days.

Similar to the previous phase, this contemporary canal side collection of homes has sparked a lot of interest. This latest phase is set next to the Grand Union Canal and the collection will eventually consist of 250 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.

These apartments will be released in a small selection at a time with the next release due in late March. If you are really keen to own a home from this lovely collection, you might want to consider the option of buying one off plan.

Simon Pendlebury is the sales and marketing director for Linden Homes:

“There are several advantages to off plan buying: It can make some aspects of the house buying process easier. Depending on the stage of build, you may also be able to choose the finish of your bathroom or kitchen, for example. Buying off plan is certainly worth thinking about.”

The Island’s setting means that the homes offer lovely views and yet they are still well located for commuters and are within walking distance of the station – so you can live peacefully by the canal, but work in London.

Linden Homes’ customer Fatma Aytemur was living and working in London when she decided she wanted to buy her own home. She wanted more space so began to look outside the Capital:

“I discovered that you really do get so much more for your money, so much more space. When my mother saw my new home for the first time she pointed out that my new kitchen alone was bigger than my old flat in London! I think it’s fair to say that moving out of London and moving here has changed my life.”

Fatma used the Help to Buy scheme* – which is available for the new apartments at Nash Mills Wharf:

“I had read pages and pages about Help to Buy because I’d considered using it right from the beginning. I knew that it would help – but I never dreamed I could end up with a home like this! The Help to Buy scheme was very simple to use. Linden Homes helped to put me through to the right people and, with the assistance of the mortgage advisers, I arranged the whole thing.”
