Village With Historical Literary Links The Latest Location For Show Home Launch
18 Jun 2013

AWARD-WINNING Linden Homes is poised to open the doors to another new development – in what is becoming a summer of show home launches.

Following on from two show home launches in Peterborough and Milton Keynes, and a pending show home unveiling on the edge of Northamptonshire – the developer is planning to reveal just what it has to offer in Helpston.

Located on the outskirts of Peterborough, the village is famed for being the birthplace of peasant poet John Clare – and maintains many historical links with its most famous son.

Aptly named Poet’s Corner, the development will comprise 42 two, three and four-bedroom homes in a private cul-de-sac setting – with the location benefiting from the many amenities the village has to offer; including post office, primary school, pub, farm shop and garden centre.

Visitors to Poet’s Corner during the weekend of June 22/23 will be the first to not only experience the rural charm of the development, but to take a look around the fantastic Wordsworth show home – and enjoy a spot of afternoon tea, with cupcakes and refreshments being offered by Linden Homes.

A four-bedroom detached – it is the perfect home in which to work, rest and play.

A spacious ground floor boasts separate dining room, living room and kitchen – as well as a study, perfect for use as a home office or an additional family area. The ground floor is completed with a cloakroom, lobby and utility room.

Four generous sized bedrooms are located on the first floor, along with a Jack and Jill family bathroom. The master bedroom is served by an ensuite.

Many of the new home designs are named after famous poets – including Byron, Keats and Burns.

Perfectly positioned just eight miles from Peterborough – Helpston offers the best of both worlds, a tranquil village setting while being just a few minutes from the city centre, served by excellent road links.

The sales and marketing suite and show home will be open from 10.30am until 5pm during the weekend. Alternatively contact the sales team on 07501 227 745.
