Your Final Chance To Buy A Chapter Of Newbury History
18 Dec 2012

One of the most interesting housing developments to emerge in Newbury is almost sold out: Linden Homes’ St Bartholomew’s Grange now has just a handful of homes remaining.

The development, which has proved extremely popular since it opened less than a year ago, is a mix of new build houses and refurbished apartments and there are just four 4 bedroom houses left (three townhouses and one detached home) and four apartments left in the Victorian Wormestall building.

These homes have been built and refurbished on the old site of St Bartholomew’s School: When pupils at the school moved into their new multi-million pound purpose built structure last year, the beautiful old Wormestall and Luker buildings were left empty. These have now been transformed into a series of beautiful, high ceilinged individual apartments. The new homes have been built in what used to be the school grounds.

Mark Docherty is sales and marketing director at Linden Homes:

“When we were creating the apartments at Wormestall and Luker, we worked hard to keep the character and shape of the two old buildings in tact as much as we could. The layout of the apartments reflects that. Each one is different as we’ve had to work around what was already there – whilst, at the same time, trying to save as many of the old features as possible. Our team at Linden Homes are very proud of the results.”

For those with a home to sell, Linden Homes’ Part Exchange Scheme* can also speed up the moving process. Under the scheme, Linden Homes becomes the guaranteed buyer for your existing property so you don’t need to worry about paying estate agents’ fees or getting caught up in a brittle property chain.
