Pentlows Meadow A New Home In An Old Village
20 Mar 2013

When you think of a beautiful, quaint village location, your mind’s eye often visualises little thatched cottages; perhaps a Queen Anne or a double fronted Victorian villa. Lovely old brick work, thatches and beams.... and lots of hard work and maintenance.

But just because you want to live in a village location doesn’t always mean you have to buy an older home and take on what can often be an expensive labour of love. Occasionally the opportunity arises to buy a brand new home in an old and historic village.

Pentlows Meadow at Braughing offers that opportunity. This new Linden Homes’ development – due to be released this spring – is a collection of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom terraced, semi and detached homes.

These new homes are set in the northwest corner of this lovely east Hertfordshire village – near the junction of Gravelly Lane/The Street/Pelham Road. In 2012 picturesque Braughing was named Hertfordshire’s Village of the Year.

Most of the village of Braughing lies within a conservation area and is surrounded by the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside. The village centre has two pubs, a post office and general store and a butcher’s shop.

Some of these new homes will enjoy views out over the fields and all them will have parking or garages and private gardens.

Because of the exceptional location of these new homes, interest is expected to be high so it’s advisable to register your interest in Pentlows Meadow early. Once you’ve registered with Linden Homes you’ll be on the priority list and will be kept up to date with news from the development and notified when new homes become available. You’ll also be eligible for a £250 voucher to spend on your new home.

Gareth Jacob is Linden Homes’ sales and marketing director:

“This is a really unusual opportunity to join a village community, whilst enjoying the blank canvas of a new home. Linden homes are award winning and built to a high specification and we’ve designed the homes for modern living, making the most of every inch of space. Research has shown that in older homes, space is wasted because the homes weren’t designed for how we live today – sometimes as much as 17% goes unused.

“And because these are new homes, they are guaranteed. Each one comes with a ten year NHBC builders’ warranty and a two year customer care warranty. All the integrated appliances in the kitchen are also guaranteed. At the same time the demands of building regulations mean that new homes are more energy efficient now than they’ve ever been before. Energy bills – the thing every owner of a draughty period home dreads – are much lower: And every home is built to meet the latest high standards of fire safety, security and ventilation too.”
