Sycamores Homes Snapped Up By Discerning Buyers
25 Nov 2014

Linden Homes’ contemporary, ground breaking properties at The Sycamores in Birtley have proved a big hit with visitors with seven reservations taken by the close of the launch weekend (22/23 November).

Financial advisors were on hand at the launch to offer advice on mortgages and three purchasers have already taken advantage of the government backed Help to Buy scheme. This can provide up to 20% of the purchase price of the home in the form of an equity loan, on which no interest needs to be paid for up to five years.

Visitors were particularly impressed with the style of the modern view home which reflects the design principles of all three house types at The Sycamores, with open-plan living spaces, extensive glazing - allowing lots of natural light to flood in - and an extremely high level of standard specification.

The Sycamores house types epitomise Linden Homes’ drive to provide buyers with more for their money. They include high range, integrated appliances featuring an induction hob with chimney style extractor hood, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer and flat line stainless steel sink with high arched brushed chrome tap. The soft-close doors and drawers, in a range of finishes, are beautifully enhanced by subtle lighting.

All the bathrooms have eye catching and elegant rectangular baths and wall mounted basins with chrome taps, while the w.cs have concealed cisterns for a contemporary finish. A fantastic choice of quality Spanish designed tiling is available and both the bathroom and en-suite are completed with chrome ceiling spotlights.

High levels of insulation, eco friendly boilers and appliances, together with rainwater harvesting help keep household bills under control.

The Sycamores is part of a £350 million investment, designed to set new standards in the quality and choice of housing in the North East and showcases what Linden Homes will offer buyers in the months and years ahead.

Some of the UK’s most innovative residential architects were commissioned to deliver strikingly designed properties which provide a step-change in the region’s housing offering.

There are three house types available – the three bedroomed Vantage and four bedroomed Vista and Villa.

Full details of Help to Buy, assisted move packages and home specification are available at the sales office, off Mount Pleasant Road (DH3 1RY) - open Thursday to Monday, between 10am and 5pm. Alternatively call 07968 573 624 to find out more.
