New homes in Ampthill make problem neighbours a thing of the past
Storey Homes highlights the comfort sound proofing apartments bring, as Rightmove’s Consumer Confidence Survey has discovered how fifty households every day are moving out from their home because of problem neighbours.
The survey of 7,000 sellers measured people’s reasons for moving over the next year, with 17,000 people predicted to move out this year to problem neighbours.
Choosing to move to an apartment from a large family home can be difficult for prospective buyers because they can be cautious of their new neighbours and especially their noise. The spacious apartments at The Limes in Ampthill, Bedfordshire provide reassurance when it comes to noisy neighbours as excellent sound proofing comes as standard.
Mark Storey, Director of Storey Homes comments: “Problem neighbours can affect homeowner’s everyday life – and noise can be the main contributor. That is why at The Limes we have made it a top priority to create walls that minimise the amount of noise that can be heard from each apartment wall to the next.
“We were very proud to announce the apartments exceeded ‘Sound Insulation Tests as per Building Regulations Part E’ by a significant margin “It was also a conscientious design choice to limit the amount of walls that are adjoining – to provide homeowners with the privacy they may want to continue from living in their detached family home.”
The way the development is built means that only one party wall will connect with a neighbour – when even then peace and quiet is guaranteed. The specification afforded to these homes is unmatched, from the luxury fitted kitchens with high quality units and worktops complete with a selection of built-in appliances, to the luxury bathrooms furnished with high-end white suites and chrome fittings. All apartments have underfloor heating and high quality flooring throughout. Master bedrooms have the advantage of an en-suite whilst the three penthouses benefit from large terraces.
The historical town of Ampthill in Bedfordshire is an ideal location for the best of both worlds because as it’s a new build property - it alleviates the previous hassle of maintaining the family home, but equips homeowners with the perfect chance to focus their time on other activities. All everyday shops such as a Waitrose, butchers, bakers, doctors and dentists are all local to the The Limes, along with many idyllic views and local amenities to the development. The Firs, The Alameda, with its beautiful avenue of trees and Ampthill Park offer relaxation and places to unwind.
But for travelling in and around London, Flitwick station is just down the road providing frequent services into London St Pancras in under an hour. The gated development, secured car parking and floor by floor security provides homeowners with the comfort that their possessions will be left safely if they do decide to travel or enjoy long holidays.
The Limes development is a great example of how moving into a property with attached walls does not mean you will have to sacrifice privacy and peace. With likeminded neighbours choosing the properties for the same reason – prospective buyers may find comfort in their new neighbours wanting the same lifestyle as their own.
Also, the low maintenance property comes with a 2 year customer service guarantee from Storey Homes for peace of mind for new ownership.
