The Exciting Closing Chapter Of Park Centrale
25 Sep 2013

Every really good story has a great ending – and that is certainly the case with Linden Homes’ Park Centrale in Southampton.

This development, set in an oasis of tranquil park, surrounded by mature trees and located close to the heart of Southampton, is now entering the final chapter of its own story with the launch of the Alexander Place apartments. Alexander Place consists of one and two bedroom apartments and a selection of one bedroom ‘solo’ apartments which feature a good sized double bedroom.

All of these homes come with parking and several of them overlook the central green, with its lovely landscaped gardens and original sculpture. Many of the apartments and solos have their own balconies and terraces. There will also be just four new townhouses built in this final phase.

Tina Chalk is the marketing manager at Linden Homes:

“Park Centrale has been so popular – it is in a great location but it is quiet and tranquil. The final chapters of this development offer an opportunity for customers to buy an apartment or a townhouse – and a chance to become part of this really successful story. We also have just two three bedroom homes remaining at Landguard Place, just across the Park Centrale green: One is a chic apartment and the other a lovely duplex - which means it is arranged over two floors and has the feel of a house, as it has its own front door.”

To make it easier to become part of the Park Centrale story – the Alexander Place apartments qualify for the Government’s Help to Buy scheme. This is a Government backed equity scheme that enables buyers to purchase a new home with just 5% deposit and a 20% equity loan – a loan that can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years - and is interest free for five years.

Hayley Clark and Henry Jones used the scheme to buy a Linden Homes’ one bedroom apartment and say the scheme proved to be very straight forward:

“We assumed that we wouldn’t be able to afford our own home yet - and everyone knows how difficult it can be to find that first deposit. But the Help to Buy scheme meant that it was possible for us. If it hadn’t been for the scheme we would both still be living with our parents. My advice to someone in the same position is ‘Go for it’: It’s very simple: There aren’t lots of forms to fill in and it was genuinely hassle free, which is what you want when you are buying a home.”

Alexander Place at Park Centrale is located in a leafy, secluded and quiet spot just off The Avenue in the heart of the city - so is within easy walking distance of the urban bustle and is the perfect location for a young professional or young, professional couple looking for their first home.
