New homes offer haven for commuters
With the current economic climate inspiring an increasing number of people to seek ways to escape the pressures of city life and adopt a more relaxed country lifestyle, it is unsurprising that the commuter belt has seen rapid expansion and now includes journeys as long as 120 minutes for some workers. With recent research revealing that homes outside of the capital offer more space at a lower price, the opening of the show home at Bovis Homes’ new development, Lavender Fields, this Saturday 2nd June, will mark the start of a great opportunity for local househunters. Situated less than an hour from central London in the leafy suburbs of Carshalton Beeches, the Lavender Fields development offers excellent value for money and an ideal opportunity for commuters seeking a new haven from their working life.
Lavender Fields offers a variety of two, three, four and five bedroom homes in a quiet semi-rural setting. Potential buyers visiting the show home this weekend will be able to look around the development and learn more about the wide selection of homes at the site, from two bedroom coach houses perfect for those looking for their first property, to large five bedroom detached houses that are ideal for families needing extra space.
Whilst layout and proportions vary depending on the house style, each has been designed to offer airy and spacious accommodation, with large windows allowing natural light in. The homes feature generous room proportions and come complete with fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms.
Those interested in the homes at the development can also take advantage of the purchase-assistance schemes Bovis offers at Lavender Fields, including Home Exchange, which is perfect for existing homeowners, and NewBuy, a 95% mortgage scheme geared at helping buyers purchase a new home with just a 5% deposit.
Chris Roads, Sales Operations Director at Bovis Homes, comments: “As more and more people seek a respite from busy cities, commuter belt towns have become prime property hotspots and, naturally, prices have risen. We are really pleased that at Lavender Fields we are able to provide an ideal haven away from the hustle and bustle but without the premium price tag.
“Priced to offer great value for money whilst being planned, designed and finished to the highest standards, the range of homes available at Lavender Fields provide an attractive, friendly neighbourhood and a great opportunity to move on to or up the property ladder. We have already sold six homes and are expecting a lot of visitors during the opening weekend of the show home.”
Lavender Fields is located on the outskirts of Carshalton Village, which offers a convenient selection of independent stores. Sutton town centre is just two miles away, offering a wider range of amenities including St Nicholas Shopping Centre, a selection of bars, pubs and restaurants and several excellent independent and state schools.
Situated just 12 miles from central London, Carshalton Beeches train station is less than a ten-minute walk from Lavender Fields and offers direct services to London Victoria of approximately 40 minutes. The M23 and M25 are each nearby, providing a fast route around London and the south-east, and Gatwick airport can be reached by car within half an hour.
Prices at Lavender Fields start from £284,950 for a two bedroom coach house, £339,950 for a three bedroom terraced house, £479,950 for a four bed semi-detached house, and £599,950 for a five bed detached house. For further information, bovishomes.co.uk.
