Work almost complete on 200-home location in Saffron Walden

Construction work is almost complete on a new housing location in Saffron Walden.

The 200-home Linden Homes development is being built by Vistry Group on land off Radwinter Road in the town and includes a mix of three, four and five-bedroom houses.

Work began on the site in 2017 and is due to come to an end this autumn.

All but eight of the 122 houses being built for private sale have now been purchased, and all 78 affordable homes for rent or shared ownership at the development have been finished and are occupied.

As part of the planning agreement for Saffron View, Vistry is contributing funding totalling £1.68 million towards local services and infrastructure.

Saffron View also features a new children’s playground which was unveiled at the site earlier this year.

Linden Homes is part of the Vistry Group, which also includes Bovis Homes and Vistry Partnerships.

Jason Colmer, sales and marketing director for Vistry Eastern, said: “The end of construction work at Saffron View will mark the culmination of a five-year build programme which has delivered 200 much-needed homes to Saffron Walden.

“Demand has been high from the moment we released the first homes onto the market in 2017. Saffron View has proved particularly popular with buyers moving out of London for a better quality of life. The excellent rail links to London mean that buyers here can enjoy a more peaceful setting while still being just over an hour’s commute away from the capital.

“All the homes at Saffron View include energy efficiency features such as thermally efficient flooring and energy-saving appliances. This has proved to be a major draw for buyers, particularly in light of the rising fuel bills we have seen in recent months.”

The final eight homes available to purchase at Saffron View include a selection of four and five-bedroom houses priced from £599,995.
