Property-hunters risk missing the boat at Linden Homes’ waterside development in Redhill, as the last houses in the high quality collection at Water Colour go on the market.
Water Colour offers peace and quiet with its wide, sunny streets, cycle paths and walkways crisscrossing acres of open space featuring lagoons, canals and reed beds.
But time is running out as only eight of the signature four-bedroom houses which were designed in collaboration with one of the country's leading architects, London-based John Thompson Partnership, are left. The final phase of the award winning development will be a collection of one and two-bedroom apartments, due to launch at the end of May.
One of the houses available to be snapped up is ‘The Monet’, a four-bedroom mid-terrace townhouse. Across its four storeys it enjoys roomy open plan living space and features a master bedroom with en suite and dressing area.
It has its own parking spaces and, in common with all Linden Homes properties, integrated kitchen appliances as standard plus a 10-year NHBC warranty for peace of mind, as well as a two-year customer care warranty.
The countryside surrounding Redhill includes the Surrey Downs with its glorious walks and views. Closer to home, and part of Water Colour, is 25 acres given to the Surrey Wildlife Trust to manage as a nature reserve with its lagoons, woods, wildlife and grassland.
One couple loved their Water Colour house so much that they bought a second. From their first three-bedroom townhouse, professionals Tom and Sarah Lord used Linden Homes’ Part Exchange scheme to up-scale into a four-bedroom, four-storey end-of-terrace house.
“You do get that sense of the countryside with the lake there,” said Sarah. “It’s really quiet and everyone is really friendly. Equally it’s quite convenient with the medical centre and the Tesco. There’s just everything that you could need within one well designed development."
She added: “We did not want to leave the Water Colour development, we loved it so much.”
Another happy buyer was Godfrey Haire (36) who had lived in Redhill for about six years before moving to Water Colour on the strength of a visit that left him and his partner deeply impressed.
“We were not looking for a new home, but then my other half heard about Water Colour from a friend next door," he said. "We went to see it and suddenly thought, ‘Right – let’s buy one!’ We bought the show home and it’s got everything we need for the kids.”
The transport links are a big draw too, especially for commuters. The A23 provides a direct car route into the capital and a dedicated bus service from Water Colour takes passengers to Redhill station from where regular trains reach London Bridge in as little as 28 minutes.
On top of quick links to London, Water Colour has easy access to the Eurotunnel while Redhill and nearby Reigate town centres boast varied shops, cafes and restaurants.
Linden Homes’ Part Exchange scheme offers one quick, hassle-free agreement that takes out estate agents’ fees and the problems with chains which can scupper even the most secure-looking move.
Eligible home-hunters choose their home and within seven days a valuation on their property will be made by three local estate agents and a cash offer made. The only thing left to do then is set a move-in date and get packing.
The government-backed Help to Buy 95 per cent mortgage scheme is also available at Water Colour.
