The Last Of The Northfields Houses Now Released
20 Feb 2014

The award winning and highly contemporary Northfields development in Colchester is now offering a new phase of three and four bedroom houses. These houses are the first wave of the final phase of this extremely popular community.

Some of the three bedroom houses are unusual in that they come with their own garage. All the houses at Northfields come complete with fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms. The kitchens are finished with integrated hob, oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer.

The homes are expected to be completed and ready to move into by early summer.

Roseanne Bullen is the regional sales and marketing manager for Linden Homes:

“Northfields’ homes have always sold well. Interestingly, now that the site has evolved, we are finding that one of the big selling points is the tremendous sense of community that exists here. There is a very neighbourly atmosphere and we have found that families are moving within Northfields as repeat customers. When they need more room, rather than moving away, they are upgrading to a larger Linden home just down the road: Their priority is to stay within the Northfields community.”

An additional attraction to the homes at Northfields is the fact that they lie within walking distance of Colchester railway station, so although it is set in an attractive and green landscape, it is close to Colchester and within easy reach of London and Stansted airport. London’s Liverpool Street is a fifty minute train ride away. The A12, A120, M25 and M11 are also all within very easy reach of Northfields.

To make it easier to purchase one of these Northfields’ homes, Linden Homes is offering the Government’s popular Help to Buy scheme*: This equity loan scheme, launched in spring last year, enables buyers to purchase a new home with just 5% deposit and a 20% Government equity loan – a loan which is interest free for five years and can be repaid at any time within the first 25 years.

Figures released by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) showed there have already been 12,875 sales of newly-built properties through the Help to Buy equity loan scheme in England since its launch, with a further 6,446 sales in the pipeline.

Linden Homes’ customer Vicky Wiltshire used Help to Buy to purchase her new home:

“I had looked into the Help to Buy scheme before we saw the house, to see if it could work for us. I think it really is an easy scheme to use. And it can make a big difference to the house buying budget. If we had tried to purchase our new home without it our budget wouldn’t have stretched to what we actually wanted to buy. With Help to Buy, we were able to look at properties that were in a different bracket.”
