The Glorious Sound Of Leather On Willow...
12 Jul 2013

...was echoing around the beautiful grounds of Cholsey Meadows, Linden Homes’ lovely development set within fields that flank the River Thames, on Sunday. In the traditional setting of the old cricket ground, at the centre of Cholsey Meadows, Cholsey Cricket Club took on a team from Whitchurch on Thames.

The warm sunny and classic English summer Sunday provided the perfect atmosphere for the event. Players and spectators were all invited to the cricket tea when play stopped for sandwiches, strawberries and scones with cream and jam.

Cholsey Meadows itself provides an excellent location for a cricket match and a very English setting for today’s modern lifestyles: It lies in a quiet and rural location in the village of Cholsey and boasts excellently finished modern homes built to the high specification characteristic of all Linden Homes.

The new show home is now open so you can see the design, layout and finish for yourself.

To make it easier to buy one of these homes, the Help to Buy* scheme is available: This is a  scheme that enables buyers to purchase a new home with just 5% deposit and a 20% Government equity loan – a loan that can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years. An equity loan is effectively a second mortgage in the form of a lump sum.

So, you provide the 5% deposit, your mortgage company lends you 75% of the value of the house, leaving 20%, which is the portion that the Government will lend to you - interest free - for five years. And it’s a scheme that has been taken up with enthusiasm by Linden Homes’ buyers already.

Trevor Lepley bought his new four bedroom Linden home using Help to Buy – and was one of the first in the country to do so. He says he simply couldn’t have managed it without the scheme:

“There is no way I could have afforded a four bedroom house without Help to Buy. I secured a mortgage of 3.09% and my new home is only £90 more a month than the rent I was paying out for the two bedroom flat I was in previously - a flat that was a third of the size of my new house.”

For those with a home to sell, there is the Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme*. Under this scheme, Linden Homes becomes your guaranteed buyer so that you don’t have to worry about marketing your old home, viewings, estate agents or their fees.

Linden Homes with offer you 100% of the market value of your home so you are freed up to go ahead and buy your new home at Cholsey Meadows.
