The Allure Of A Brand New Home In An Ancient City
19 Jul 2012

One of the most remarkable developments to be created in the beautiful Harnham area of Salisbury is to be opened to the public for viewing in early August.

Work is progressing well at Bouverie Walk, where Linden Homes is busy creating just thirteen 3, 4 and 5 bedroom family homes.

This new development is located just off the Old Blandford Road about half way between the historic cathedral city and the nationally renowned Salisbury District Hospital - with its specialist plastic surgery, spinal and genetic departments.

It is close to some of the most beautiful scenery that Britain has to offer – an area immortalised by John Constable’s paintings of the local water meadows and Salisbury Cathedral.

Each of the Bouverie Walk houses is being designed and built with outstanding care and attention to detail and with the very high specification that is characteristic of all Linden Homes. The elegant show home is a stylish and spacious five bedroom home.

Once complete, the development will consist of one 3-bedroom home with its own garage, eight 4-bedroom homes and four 5-bedroom homes, all with double garages. One of the five bedroom homes has a detached garage and a very large office space within the house. Each home has its own manageable garden. So the design is both convenient and easy to maintain.

There has been human habitation in Salisbury for around 5000 years. The oldest part of the city, Old Sarum was first settled in around 3000BC. The city itself has many old and historic buildings – and many old homes. And while these old buildings have much appeal, they can demand high levels of maintenance.

A new home, like the ones at Bouverie Walk, offers many very distinct advantages:

New homes are built to a much higher specification than many older properties; they are six times more energy efficient and generate an estimated 60% less CO2 emissions than older style homes. The building standards and regulations for new homes are higher than they’ve ever been and these homes won’t require major repairs or renovations.

So instead of embarking on complicated DIY projects, the family can use the time to investigate the heritage of Salisbury and its surrounding countryside.

Another distinct advantage of buying a new home from Linden Homes is the company’s efficient Part Exchange Scheme*: If you sign up for this, Linden Homes will become the guaranteed buyer of your existing home. It will be valued (by several estate agents) and Linden Homes will make you an offer within seven days. By taking on your old property, Linden Homes also pays your estate agent fees. There are no chains either – so much of the stress of moving is removed.

It’s expected that most of the thirteen Bouverie Walk homes will be ready to move in to by November of this year – but to register your interest now or to find out more about Bouverie Walk, Linden Homes and the Part Exchange Scheme, please call 0845 603 1707.
