Your Chance To Move To Londons Best Kept Secret
03 Feb 2012

With rental rates currently averaging at £100 more expensive a month than mortgage payments there really has not been a better time to buy a sparkling brand new home.

And no new home development better epitomises the advantages of buying a new property than Linden Homes’ Thornbury Park.

Thornbury Park is situated in the graceful Spring Grove Conservation Area of west London and consists of two, three and four bedroom homes that have been thoughtfully laid out within the tranquil grounds of elegant, old Campion House, a former college and spiritual retreat for young men training for the priesthood.

According to Darren Maddox, managing director of Linden Homes Chiltern, the top 10 reasons for buying a new home in this picturesque boutique development are:

  • You can have your home fully fitted/decorated for you before you move in – with the help of our interior design service, you can personalise everything including colour schemes, blinds or curtains, carpeting and floor coverings, appliances, granite worktops and other fittings to ensure your property feels like home.
  • New builds are virtually maintenance free. There are no expensive and time-consuming DIY renovations/repairs, so you can simply move in and enjoy your new home with family and friends.
  • The peace of mind of a 10-year NHBC build warranty and two-year customer care warranty which come as standard.
  • Most new builds are on brownfield sites, meaning they are close to shops, transport and amenities. Proximity to quality schools is also a prime factor for developers when purchasing sites for redevelopment, meaning home buyers can get into these catchment areas. Thornbury Park is just a stone’s throw away from Spring Grove Primary School and the Hounslow Consortium of Schools.
  • Current building regulations mean new homes are six times more energy efficient than existing homes and produce over 60 per cent less CO2 emissions than older properties. This means the environment benefits from the equivalent of 10,000 fewer miles being driven each year per household, while homeowners can enjoy savings of more than £500 each year on their energy bills – a significant saving given the skyrocketing cost of utilities.
  • The buying process is much less complicated as there is no forward chain on the purchase. This gives you more certainty, less stress and no risk of a deal falling through from no fault of your own. Better still, you can take advantage of Linden Homes’ popular Part Exchange Scheme, where you can buy and sell in one quick, easy move.
  • New homes better utilise floorspace, making every room more functional. Research shows 17 per cent of living space in older properties often goes unused – a waste of £34,000 on a £200,000 home.
  • You don’t just get a new home but access to a new community, where everyone is in the same position, settling into the neighbourhood and meeting new people. Thus it is much easier to meet neighbours and make friends than in an existing neighbourhood, where long-held relationships can be hard to break into. The grounds at Thornbury Park make an ideal setting for picnics or where children can play and make new friends.
  • Buying off-the-plan means you can secure at today’s prices, move in on completion and take advantage of special offers exclusive to new builds, such as the payment of stamp duty or agent fees. Recent research by Halifax also shows that, on average, would-be home buyers are spending nearly £100 per month more on rent than they would on a mortgage.
  • Investors in particular are benefiting from lower borrowing costs and rising rents at present. We have had many investors buy two properties in the one development, and all have rented quickly in part because of the proximity to top local schools.
