A hassle free home gives couple a new start at Blenheim Square
With a survey stating that renovations and repairs can cost home buyers up to £2,500 it is no wonder that many purchasers find that buying a new build property is a simpler option than buying second hand.* This is especially true for those looking for somewhere they can move straight in to like Mr & Mrs Carter in North Weald, Epping, who bought a brand new home at Crest Nicholson’s Blenheim Square development so that they had a simpler move and could start their family in a fresh new home.
Nicky (33) and Simon (37) Carter were looking to buy their first martial home together in North Weald as Nicky has lived there her whole life. As Nicky was pregnant with their first child, the couple wanted to buy a home that was ready to move into and save themselves the hassle of working on a second hand home, so, when they saw a three bedroom property at Blenheim Square they were impressed by the open plan layout on the ground floor, with access straight into the garden and knew that they had found the ideal home to raise their child in and settle into.
Nicky said “My dad’s a builder so I grew up with homes that were bought to ‘do up’, and I knew I didn’t want the hassle of that when I was expecting my first child, buying a new-build home is ideal as it’s a new house for a new start so a new build property was the obvious option for us. I also really wanted to carry on living in North Weald to be near my family, so I suggested Blenheim Square to Simon. We wanted a family house so the three bedroom Leigh house type was just what we were looking for we could see it was a great home to settle into and grow our family in. My sister lives in the next road along as well so we’re looking forward to our children being able to go to school together in a few years’ time
“Both Simon and I were previously living in Essex so know the area well and know how great the travel connections from North Weald are. Simon is a financial analyst in Brentwood and so it’s really easy for him to drive to work and I’m looking forward to being so close to the city for after my baby is born. We were drawn to Blenheim Square thanks to a fantastic stamp duty paid initiative from Crest Nicholson as well as the great value of the homes compared to house prices in nearby Epping.”
Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director of Crest Nicholson Eastern comments; “Buying a new build home is an ideal choice for purchasers looking for a quick move with minimum stress. Nicky and Simon, who are expecting their first child, weren’t looking for any more hassle than necessary and the quality of build and service at Crest Nicholson was on offer to give them piece of mind. Blenheim Square is a popular development with young couples looking to stay close to London but enjoy the benefits of country living and with a host of top performing local schools nearby is an ideal choice for young families. The development has proven so popular that only four properties are left, so families hoping to make the most of both town and country living should act fast to secure a home.”
Blenheim Square is a traditionally designed selection of two, three and four-bedroom properties which will suit all types of homebuyers. From apartments and cottages to larger family houses, all homes are designed to maximise space and light.
As well as being close to larger Essex towns such as Harlow and Epping, Blenheim Square offers fantastic connections to the capital in under an hour, with trains from Epping Underground Station to London Liverpool Street taking just 35 minutes and 50 minutes to Oxford Circus. For those who drive, the M11 (junction 7) can be reached via the A414, which means that Stansted Airport is just 16 miles away. The M25 can also be accessed via the M11, as well as London Docklands via the North Circular in approximately 35 minutes.
Nicky concludes: “We really couldn’t fault Crest Nicholson on their level of service, they made what could have been a highly stressful time in our lives - newly married, pregnant and buying a new home – really simple and guided us through the whole process making our lives so much easier.”
Prices for a two bedroom home at Blenheim Square start from £188,500 and from £269,500 for the last remaining three bedroom house on the development. For further information, visit crestnicholson.com.
