When it comes to family life – style, space and design are key when searching for a home that ticks all the boxes.

Whether you are looking for a larger property to meet the needs of a growing family or just require some additional space to use as you please, then Linden Homes Midlands can help ease your search in Leicestershire.

The developer has added a brand new home to its property portfolio, and is currently showcasing the four-bedroom detached Claremont design at Mulberry Park in Hamilton.

A traditionally styled home, this desirable family property is perfect in which to work, rest and play.

The entrance hall leads into a spacious lounge, with the focal point an attractive bay window feature. A study makes the ideal space for those looking to work from home, or as an alternative to travelling to the office each day.

The family area, the perfect additional room for busy lives, also leads into the heart of the ground floor – a generously sized kitchen/dining area.

Meanwhile, the garden provides a wonderful space for alfresco dining with friends or relaxing on a sunny day, as well as a pleasant space for children to enjoy.

On the first floor, all the generously sized bedrooms have direct access from the landing, and alternative uses for those not needed all the bedrooms could be a guest room or even a home gym.

There is also a family bathroom, and ensuite facilities to the master bedroom. An attractive and pleasant additional feature to the master bedroom is a dressing area.

This style of home currently starts in price at £329,995, and a number of Claremont designs are available to reserve now at Mulberry Park.

A range of other four-bedroom homes, along with a selection of three and five-bedroom homes will complete the 60-home development off Laverton Road.

The detached and semi-detached properties are perfect for those looking for a first family home or who are upsizing.

And for those who have an existing property to sell or are concerned that a larger home may be out of their reach, the Part Exchange or Help to Buy incentives may be the answer.

There are many advantages to using Part Exchange; there is no chain, valuations are obtained on your behalf, the new homes developer deals directly with the estate agent, and a fast sale usually happens quickly.

If you are a homeowner and are eligible for part exchange, here’s how it works:

Linden Homes will arrange for at least three independent valuations of your existing home and will make you an offer based on their suggestions.

Once you agree the offer, and subject to satisfactory surveys, Linden Homes becomes your cash buyer, freeing you up to place your reservation on your new home.

Stay in your old home until your new one is ready to move in to.

After that, it's a case of setting a moving-in date, boxing up your things, and basking in the relief of a quick chain-free move to the home of your dreams.

Meanwhile, if you are a first time buyer or current homeowner, there is the Help To Buy scheme.

Buyers are required to provide just a five per cent deposit to then borrow a further 20 per cent from the Government in the form of an equity loan. They then only need a 75 per cent mortgage agreed by their bank or building society to secure their home.

A number of the new homes at Mulberry Park have been sold off plan, and now is the perfect time to beat the rush and reserve your new home.

Mulberry Park is perfectly placed just four miles from Leicester city centre, making it an ideal commutable location.

For journeys further afield, Leicester train station offers a fastest journey time of 1 hour 6 minutes into London St Pancras International station. Mulberry Park is also within close proximity to the A47 and M1 for routes north and south.

The sales and marketing suite and show home are open from Thursday to Monday from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively, visit
