Race Is On For Last Three New Homes At Riverside In Godalming
27 Jul 2015

The race is on for the last three new homes at Godalming’s fast-selling Riverside development by award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes.

Buyers have quickly snapped up the popular collection of properties on the banks of the River Wey, close to the centre of the popular Surrey market town of Godalming.

The sought-after last homes are a four-bedroom terraced house in the Thame style, and two three-bedroom semi-detached houses in the Arun style.

For house-hunters who act fast, the homes are available to secure off plan to beat the competition and enjoy the opportunity to personalise their home as it is built. The Thame will be ready for moving day in the autumn and the two Aruns in the spring next year.

To find out more about the benefits of buying off plan, a special event dedicated to answering people’s questions will be hosted by Linden Homes at the Riverside sales office over the weekend of August 1st and 2nd between 10am and 5pm.

Andrew Reynolds, Linden Homes Guildford’s sales and marketing director, said: “Riverside has sold fast ever since it launched, so these last three homes are not going to be available long. We’re advising people to act now to avoid missing out.

“To get ahead of the market people can buy off plan, which is why we’re holding our special event on August 1st and 2nd to answer questions and explain the benefits. Please get in touch to find out more – I think we’re going to be busy!”

The three-storey Thame has an expansive living/dining room with French windows opening up into the fully turfed garden. A bay window at the front floods the kitchen and breakfast area with light.

Living space ranges across 1,503 square feet, including a WC downstairs, first-floor bathroom and two en suites for bedroom 2 and the private third-floor master bedroom, which also boasts a walk-in dressing room.

The two-storey Arun’s galley kitchen opens into the spacious living/dining room which in turn steps through French windows out into the garden. Upstairs the master bedroom has an en suite with the two other bedrooms served by a sleek family bathroom.

In common with all Linden Homes properties, each Riverside home comes with integrated kitchen appliances as standard, plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.

For newly-wed Riverside residents Matthew and Kelly Murgatroyd, one of their favourite things about their new house is al fresco dinners on their balcony overlooking the river as the sun goes down.

Matthew (40), who works in IT, said: “The layout works for us too; we use all the floors and all the space. We have a sofa and TV in the dining room by the kitchen so we can chat while one of us cooks, and then head upstairs to the living room. It’s really nice if we’re entertaining, it keeps everyone together.

“The friends and family who have visited us love our new home. It feels like we have spent our money very well here. We’re very settled and we can’t wait to get home these days and enjoy being here.”

It particularly suits them for work: Kelly (36) is cabin crew and flies from Gatwick and Heathrow, so Riverside is well placed for both with fast access to the A3 to reach the M25, London and also the south coast.

Matthew mainly works from home but he has the connections on hand for business trips, with a train station less than a mile away in Farncombe running direct to London Waterloo in about 45 minutes.
