Commuting often gets a bad name. But when the railway station is just down the road and journeys into London take less than an hour, the appeal is more obvious.
In the popular market town of Horsham, for example, award-winning Linden Homes has created the popular Oaklands development with a choice of luxurious two, three and four-bedroom houses and stylish one and two-bedroom apartments.
The new homes are conveniently located just 14 minutes’ walk from where direct services carry passengers from the heart of rural West Sussex into London Victoria in as little as 47 minutes and to London Bridge in just under an hour (56 minutes).
As well as the luxury of getting out of bed later and returning home sooner, the short walk to the station could also save families annual car parking fees that, for drivers coming in from further afield, have the worrying potential to stretch beyond the £1,000 mark.
For those precious days off, Horsham’s town centre is a short walk away, as is the green open space of Horsham Park. Residents can take their choice too from a wide menu of local shopping, eateries and a variety of local sporting activities.
There’s more to leafy Oaklands than location, however. A trio of semi-detached four-bedroom houses, for example, offer a warm and welcoming home to return to after a hard day’s work.
Thoughtfully arranged across three floors, the spacious properties each feature en suite master bedrooms, stylish galley kitchens, and garages. Open plan living/dining rooms open out into the garden for pleasant summer days and space for entertaining.
To make the purchasing process easier, Linden Homes offers its Part Exchange scheme in which it acts as the guaranteed buyer on qualifying properties, saving time, hassle and expensive estate agent’s fees.
Alternatively, Assisted Move gives customers the option of reserving a home and, for an agreed period, letting Linden Homes take the strain of selling their old home including dealing with the estate agents and paying all their fees.
Each home also comes with a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty offers peace of mind.
Andrew Reynolds, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South, said: “Horsham is a very attractive market town to live, and the homes at Oaklands enjoy a fantastic location within easy reach of amenities, entertainment and connections.
“Being walking distance from the train station is a particular benefit for professional residents who need to reach London, Brighton or Guildford, for instance. You don’t have to sacrifice your whole day to the office; you can enjoy family life too.
“The houses are of high quality, the development is welcoming and leafy, and the location is excellent. It’s a very sought after mix and it’s sparking a lot of interest in the market. To be sure of getting their first choice, we’re advising customers to get in touch now.”
