VIP Opening Celebrates Official Unveiling Of New Homes In Market Harborough
26 Apr 2017

Special guests joined local home hunters to mark the official unveiling of a brand new housing development in Market Harborough.

The Ashton Rise development in the desirable Lubenham Hill area has already proved popular, with a number of new homes being snapped up from the drawing board.

Receiving its official unveiling, guests and visitors were able to have a tour of the show home and find out just what Ashton Rise – which comprises 119 two, three, four and five-bedroom properties – has to offer.

And it seemed fitting that members of the Market Harborough Historical Society, who suggested the name for the development, were invited by Linden Homes Midlands to mark the occasion with ribbon cutting ceremony.

Also present were representatives of the Lubenham Heritage Group who were involved in the naming project.

House hunters have the chance to beat the rush and reserve off plan at the development, which can result in a number of benefits, including:

  • Selecting a plot with a sought-after south facing garden
  • Contemporary kitchens and bathrooms
  • Choosing preferred taste in bathroom wall tiles
  • Choosing preferred kitchen units and worktops
  • Having a blank canvas from which to plan a new home
  • Lower utility bills and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer
  • New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient than their older counterparts.
  • 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection

Linden Homes Midlands area sales manager Tracey Gibson said: “Buying off plan is a trend which seems to be continuing across the Midlands region with buyers who are keen to secure their preferred plot on a particular development.

“For the customer, this is great news – bringing with it numerous benefits. For developers like us, it shows a real confidence in the new homes market and a recognition that our carefully chosen locations and designs are continuing to win public approval.

“Our experience shows that customers are much more savvy about the house buying process, and coupled with knowledgeable and experienced sales staff and up to the minute brochures and plans – snapping up a new home from the drawing board is as popular as it has ever been, and even easier.

And before the first bricks were laid, local residents had the chance to find out for themselves a little of the area’s rich past when experts uncovered evidence of Iron Age and Roman settlements on the site last summer.

A series of organised on-site tours attracted over 70 people interested in finding out more about the artefacts.
