Showcase Event Opens The Door To Oxfordshire Village Living
07 Sep 2015

Linden Homes is unlocking the door for househunters eager to find a place to settle in one of Oxfordshire’s famously sought-after rural towns and villages.

The Abingdon-based housebuilder is hosting an open day on September 17th from 2pm-7pm at Milton Hill House Hotel, Steventon, where customers can discover more about the choice of high quality properties, peaceful locations, and smart mortgage and valuation options.

Sales advisors from award-winning Linden Homes will be joined by an Independent Financial Advisor, Part Exchange Advisor and representatives from independent local estate agent Green and Co.

There is a trio of high quality developments to choose from, containing a variety of characterful homes ranging in size from two to five bedrooms.

In East Hanney is Kings Meadow, a select collection of only 10 four-bedroom executive detached houses overlooking rolling fields and just a short stroll from the village centre.

The village of Steventon is home to The Pitchings. The development contains a choice of two, four and five-bedroom houses, each individually designed to reflect the traditional local architecture, with contemporary layouts inside.

To the east of Steventon lies the pretty village of Milton, where off-plan purchases at Cobblestones will secure the first pick of the two, three and four-bedroom homes.

The three distinctive developments are no more than 15 miles apart, so they all enjoy the rural benefits of the North Wessex Downs Area of Natural Beauty to the south.

Quiet and peaceful, the homes are nevertheless well connected with road links to the A34, M4 and M40. From Didcot Railway Station services link to Reading and London, with the journey time to London Paddington taking approximately 45 minutes.

In common with all Linden Homes’ developments, each property also comes with a 10-year NHBC warranty and a two-year customer care warranty.

A variety of enablers can help buyers get ahead of the competition:

  • On homes priced up to £600,000, the government-backed Help to Buy supports buyers with a deposit as low as five per cent. With a 20 per cent loan (interest free for the first five years), a 75 per cent mortgage makes up the balance.
  • After agreeing a value on qualifying properties, Part Exchange is where Linden Homes becomes the guaranteed cash buyer of your old home, paying estate agent’s fees and removing the hassle of property chains.
  • Assisted Move offers practical assistance selling your old home for an agreed price and length of time, while a deposit takes your chosen new home off the market.

Steve Garton, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes Thames Valley, said: “Oxfordshire is famous for its beautiful villages and stunning countryside. But people shouldn’t mistake the homes for being unaffordable and out of reach.

“Our open event at Milton Hill House, Steventon, on September 17th will be a chance for househunters to find out about our wide variety of well-connected homes and the best and simplest ways to secure them. We’re looking forward to answering questions.”
