South Coast Apartment Living - The Way Forward
22 Jul 2015

If you’re considering a first home, a home for retirement, somewhere to live for an easy commute, a lock up and leave or a downsizing destination, then an apartment might be the ideal solution. And Linden Homes has an apartment on the south coast to suit everyone.

Currently there are beautiful apartments available from Linden Homes within easy reach of the main south coast cities and close to the main commuter routes to London, in conveniently located Hampshire villages and towns. These properties are ideally situated for those who enjoy spending time at Gunwharf Quays, Port Solent and Chichester with all of their eateries, cafes and shopping.

The Old Brewery in Horndean, Hawthorn Mews in Bedhampton and St Michael’s Place in Waterlooville all currently offer an array of beautifully designed and finished apartments.

Hawthorn Mews in Bedhampton offers everything a first time buyer might need: The bathrooms are fully fitted, as are the kitchens which come with fully fitted and guaranteed appliances. The apartments are spaciously laid out and cleverly designed by the award winning Linden Homes’ team. This development in the village of Bedhampton is just off Portsdown Hill road. It is close to the main commuter routes for Portsmouth, Southampton and London, so they are conveniently situated for the A3, A27 and M27. Bedhampton station is just over half a mile away and Havant station a mile and a half away. The new show apartment is now open so you can get a clear – and inspirational - idea of what it would be like to make a Linden Home your first home.

At St Michael’s Place in Waterlooville, Linden Homes has completely transformed the site of the old St Michael’s convent, which lies within walking distance of the shops, banks and cafes on the town’s high street. The interior of the beautiful Victorian Grade II listed convent building has been reworked to create an extraordinary series of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. From Havant station, around three miles away, you can catch a direct train to London Waterloo and be there in around an hour and twenty minutes.

If you’re looking for somewhere to downsize to, or perhaps a ‘lock up and leave’ property, then you should visit The Old Brewery in Horndean. This development has helped to bring the centre of the village – specifically the former Gale’s brewery site - back to life and now offers a range of chic, modern, well designed and beautifully finished apartments. The Old Brewery is close to the doctor’s surgery and the village shop; there are pubs and a post office and the main bus route to the south coast passes just outside the development.

These south coast apartments are already attracting interest from further afield than Hampshire: buyers have been heading south west from areas like Guildford and other parts of Surrey – to see for themselves how much more they can get for their money in Hampshire.

Tina Chalk is the sales manager at Linden Homes’ Southern:

“There is something chic and uncomplicated about apartment living. And with these homes you don’t have to compromise on location. You can enjoy village locations without feeling cut off in anyway. You are walking distance from pubs and shops, but away from the bustle and noise of the city – until you want to be in the city – then it’s just a short car, bus or train journey away. It’s an uncomplicated, easy living solution if you’re looking for your first home, searching for the perfect young professional abode or buying your retirement pad.”
