Showcasing Homes With Quality Throughout
28 Jul 2015

Linden Homes today opens its very first showhome at The Sycamores, Birtley.

And to celebrate, the first three reservations will have stamp duty paid and a flooring package. Plus, all visitors can enter a draw to win an i-pad and enjoy a glass of bubbly.

The three bedroomed Vantage showhome epitomises a drive to provide unique spaces, unrivalled specification and quality. The standard integrated kitchen appliances include an induction hob with extractor hood, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, flat line stainless steel sink and soft-close doors and drawers in a choice of finishes.

Other unique features include Nordic pine window frames with floor to ceiling glazing in the lounge and there are also spotlights to wet rooms and fitted wardrobes to the master bedroom.

Kate Brooks Head of Sales says: “We are really proud of our new showhome, which truly demonstrates our commitment to provide something different to the North East housing market. The Sycamores house styles are all unique and include quality fixtures and fittings, designed specifically with the house types in mind.”

The showhome interior was inspired by a ‘bringing the outdoors in’ theme, taking full advantage of the extensive glazing, which allows natural light to flood the property.

The same stunning levels of finish and specification naturally apply to the four bedroomed Vista, a generously proportioned family home of over 1,400 square feet - also available.

Utilising the government backed Help to Buy scheme* – which is not just for first time buyers - could make owning a Vista more affordable than you think. A 5% deposit - £13,000 - together with a 20% interest free government loan, leaves a £195,000 mortgage attracting a monthly payment of just over £700.

Several purchasers have already taken advantage of Help to Buy and Linden Homes’ Assisted Move, which helps buyers to sell their existing home - without estate agent fees to pay – leaving them free to buy a new home with Help to Buy support.

The sales office, viewhome and showhome – located off Mount Pleasant Road (DH3 1RY) – are open Thursday to Monday between 10am and 5pm. Alternatively call 0191 379 1649+ to arrange a visit to find out more.

* Help to Buy terms and conditions apply and are available on request.
+ This call will cost 7p per minute plus a phone company access charge.
