Offering Chic And Style Or Peace Of Mind - Apartment Living Ticks All The Boxes
24 Jan 2013

WHETHER you are looking for something chic and trendy as a first home, or a property with a little less maintenance in later life – Linden Homes’ apartments have it all.

A number of stylish apartments to cater for a variety of lifestyle needs and requirements are currently available at the popular St Michael’s Chase development at Longstanton in Cambridgeshire, alongside a selection two, three, four and five bedroom homes.

The latest residents to opt for something low maintenance yet high quality are Trevor and Pam Newton.

The retired couple, originally from Sheffield, used one of Linden Homes’ popular incentive schemes to move to their brand new apartment bolthole at St Michael’s Chase.

Not only were they seeking a more carefree lifestyle that apartment living can offer, but the couple were keen to move closer to their family.

Trevor said: “We regularly visit our two sons and their wives and our one year old grandson, George.

“Although healthy at present, we were looking for a carefree lifestyle with little maintenance and liked the added security and peace of mind that an apartment offered.”

Trevor and Pam first saw St Michael’s Chase via the Internet, and on a family visit went to view the development.

Pam added: “We liked what we saw and the price was reasonable for the Cambridgeshire area. We were particularly impressed with the sales executive Hannah Balaam-Reed who clearly explained the buying options to us.

“The whole move happened very smoothly and quickly and more importantly was quite stress free.  We were kept informed regularly of all developments and were pleased to note that the purchase covered Estate Agent fees for the sale of our property.”

Trevor and Pam moved through the Assisted Move incentive that gives customers with an existing home to sell the chance to sell it hassle free while reserving their new dream property with Linden Homes.

Trevor said: “We are very pleased with Linden Homes and our new apartment - particularly impressed by the finish and presentation of its interior, and of course, we are thrilled to be closer to our family.

A number of apartments are currently for sale at Longstanton, providing a perfect first property for young professional or friends sharing, as well as for those looking to downsize.
