Parkland Apartments Perpetuate The Northfields Phenomenon
05 Nov 2013

The long awaited stylish apartments have now been launched at Northfields, Colchester by the award winning housebuilder, Linden Homes. And very competitively priced, this collection of one and two bedroom homes are set to sell fast.

The development is a new and contemporary one – but at its heart lays a very traditional and staunch sense of community. Many people who live here talk about the neighbourly and friendly atmosphere that exists. In fact, bonds have become so strong for some residents that when it came to searching for a larger home – because their families were growing, or they just needed more space – several people looked no further than the development they were already part of:- Northfields. They traded their two or three bedroom home for something a bit bigger, just down the road.

The great atmosphere is one thing, but Northfields ticks the boxes in terms of practicality and convenience too. Although it is set in an idyllic, green landscape, it is close to Colchester and within easy reach of London and Stansted airport. London’s Liverpool Street is a 50 minute train ride away and Colchester station is just over half a mile away – a walk away really – from Northfields. Colchester town centre is nearby, with its shops, supermarkets and a local retail park. Driving is no problem at all for commuters: The A12, A120, M25 and M11 (for Ipswich and Cambridge) are also all within very easy reach of Northfields.

Linden Homes’ sales and marketing director, Gareth Jacob says that the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme*, launched earlier this year, has helped a number of Northfields’ residents to buy their own homes:

“This scheme has made a substantial difference to lots of our Northfields’ customers. The scheme has allowed them to buy a new home with just 5% deposit and a 20% Government equity loan – a loan that can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years but is interest free for five years. It’s made the whole process of buying a new home much for achievable for so many people here and has given them a chance to be part of the Northfields phenomenon.”

The latest phase of new homes, The Parkland Apartments, overlook the beautiful grounds nearby and have been designed so that all the first, second and third floor homes have their own balconies. Many of the Parkland Apartments come with allocated parking spaces and all of them are finished with fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms: The kitchens come with integrated appliances: a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, oven, hob and extractor fan.
