New George Delivered At Royal Address After Months Of Anticipation
29 Jul 2013

After months of anticipation, a kingly new Georgian has been delivered to popular acclaim at a royal address just a few miles from one of Britain’s most majestic stately palaces.

The recent arrival has drawn admiring visitors from miles around and in the run-up to its introduction to the world there’s been plenty of lively discussion about its likely features, its first callers and even its character.

But this fresh face isn’t going to be making its home at Kensington Palace. Instead this stunning new Georgian is the model of the show property at award-winning Linden Homes’ Kings Square collection in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

Aptly named, ‘The George’ showhome sits on the Kings Square development, which comprises a superb mix of two-storey three and four-bedroom semi-detached houses only 10 minutes’ walk from the town’s station which, with direct trains just 30 minutes from London Waterloo, makes it ideal for commuters.

Located in a quiet cul-de-sac just a few miles from Hampton Court palace, this peaceful new neighbourhood boasts short strolls to the banks of the River Thames, good schools and green parks.

Each property comes with integrated kitchen appliances as standard plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.

A special event at Kings Square on the weekend of August 3rd – almost by royal invitation – will bring visitors to see for themselves the quality of the homes and their beautifully landscaped setting. Those reserving on the day will even be treated to tea at the Ritz!

What’s more, Kings Square is also the only collection of properties in the area where the government-backed Help to Buy scheme is available, enabling house-hunters with a deposit as low as five per cent the opportunity to secure their dream home.

Help to Buy works by the government providing an equity loan of up to 20 per cent of the value of any new-build home worth up to a maximum of £600,000. This can be repaid at any time or when the home is sold, and is interest free for the first five years.

With the equity loan added to their deposit as low as five per cent, buyers are in the easier position of only needing to agree a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society.

Linden Homes Guildford sales and marketing director, Natalie Flint, said: “’The George’ at Kings Square hasn’t caused the worldwide stir the new royal baby has – but for househunters looking for a lovely family home in a great area with good schools it’s been very exciting all the same!

“The Help to Buy scheme has been giving vital support both for first-time buyers and people moving up the ladder to secure their dream home. We’re delighted to be offering it here and are happy to talk visitors through the simple steps.

“Overall Kings Square has excellent transport links and the homes have our customary high quality and attention to detail. Add in the attractions of the neighbourhood and it’s a combination that’s proved hard to resist. Come for a visit and find out for yourself.”

The lifestyle on offer is enviable, as Walton-on-Thames has a variety of modern shops, cafes, restaurants and cinema, and is close to a picturesque stretch of the River Thames, lined by an enticing mix of pubs, riverside parks, sports clubs, boat trips and more.

The town centre is within walking distance of Kings Square which nestles in an established and desirable cul de sac enjoying easy access to a good choice of schools, three golf courses and a leisure centre and private gym.

The fun and glamour of Sandown Racecourse is nearby, as is the splendour of Hampton Court Palace, and the M25 is reached by a short drive. By road, central London is only 19 miles away and lively Kingston Upon Thames only seven.
