One Third Of New Homes Sold From Plan At Follaton Oak
24 Aug 2015

Savvy customers in South Devon have been snapping up homes from the drawing board – with one third of the properties at Linden Homes’ new Follaton Oak development in Totnes sold just as the foundations begin to form.

Follaton Oak is an exclusive collection of contemporary new homes in the South Hams, just outside Totnes. The development hosts a wide choice of three, four and five bedroom homes. Many of the new homes enjoy fantastic country views towards Dartmoor, and with 10 contemporary designs all built to a high specification, there is something for everyone.

Although the first homes aren’t due for occupation until later this year, there is a chance for potential homebuyers – like those who have already reserved – to reap the many benefits of snapping up a new home from the drawing board, including:

  • Personalising their home by choosing their preferred bathroom tiles and kitchen units
  • Offering more time to save towards furniture and carpets
  • Securing a new home at today’s price in a rising market
  • Taking advantage of the low interest rates on current mortgages
  • Schemes available for five per cent deposits
  • Lower utility bills and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer
  • New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient than their older counterparts
  • A 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection

Sharon Holder, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes, said: “We knew that the Follaton Oak development would provoke a lot of interest both locally and from further afield, but the high number of sales from plan has exceeded initial expectations. The development was only launched a few months ago, but already over 30% have been reserved off plan. With this in mind, we would urge anyone who is keen to purchase at Follaton Oak to reserve now to avoid disappointment.”

It couldn’t be a more convenient location, with excellent transport links and stunning countryside. The district known as the South Hams is one of the most beautiful areas of Devon, and Totnes is the jewel in its crown.

Follaton Oak will be an exciting new addition to the residential options in the area. Linden Homes are currently taking off plan reservations and the stunning new show home will be open in late Autumn, with first occupation towards the end of the year.
