Two Outstanding - And Very Different - New Homes In Newbury
05 Mar 2013

Linden Homes is currently offering two outstanding new homes at their St Bartholomew’s Grange development in Newbury.

The first is a spectacular new penthouse apartment in the beautiful old Victorian Wormestall building on the site of the old Newbury Boys Grammar School.

The apartment – Linden Homes’ brand new show home - is exceptional: It is arranged over two floors, has exposed beams and a spiral staircase. It oozes style and originality. It is a one off.

One of its main features is its tremendous sense of space. This apartment has three bedrooms - the master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom.

The light and airy theme continues throughout the spacious and well designed open plan living/dining/kitchen. This beautiful apartment has been finished with the usual high specification and style that is common to all Linden Homes: There are granite work tops and fully integrated appliances in the kitchen; the staircase is stylishly finished and the original features of this old Victorian building have been carefully preserved and cleverly incorporated in the overall design.

Nearby, in the same development there is another extraordinary home available. This one is a three storey, detached four bedroom home with a generous south west facing garden. Two of the four bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. Very different to the penthouse apartment, this is an ideal family home.

What these two homes have in common, however, is their close proximity to Newbury town centre. The heart of the town, with its shops, restaurants and banks, is a walk away.

St Bartholomew’s Grange now has just six homes remaining for sale. The Penthouse apartment, the detached four bedroom family house and four other apartments including 3 three bedroom homes and one two bedroom home.

There are a number of schemes available to help buying at St Bartholomew’s Grange, possible. For instance, it could be that you’re interested in a new home at this development, but view your existing home as a barrier to a smooth move. The Linden Homes Part Exchange Scheme is designed to relieve that pressure and take the responsibility of selling your home for you.

Under the scheme, Linden Homes will have your old property valued and make you an offer for it so you can go ahead and buy your new Linden Home.

Although Newbury is a busy, thriving and self sufficient town it is also within easy commuting distance of London. It is one hour by train and when compared to other commutable towns and cities, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Peterborough, Northampton and Winchester, Newbury has the cheapest season ticket to London.

It also has the additional benefit of being positioned on the M4 corridor, making it simple to drive to London or head west to Bristol, Wales and the West Country.
