Bellway family townhouses meet demand for larger homes

23rd May 2016 Print

With the average family growing for the first time in a generation, according to the latest research from the Office for National Statistics, the demand for four bedroom homes is on the rise. It is a trend that Bellway Homes has already recognised and is catering for and its popular Maida development at Wellesley in Aldershot, where an impressive collection of four bedroom townhouses are now being offered with Help to Buy.

Located to the southern edge of the Maida development - which has already proved popular with Hampshire house hunters, snapping up over 95% of the first phase of homes at this flagship regeneration scheme - the three-storey townhouses boast an enviable position along a quiet street, off Queen’s Avenue, and just three now remain.

Claire Brooks-McGoldrick, Sales Director for Bellway Homes Thames Valley, comments: “We know there is a demand for practical-yet-stylish homes that can accommodate the shift to larger families, without compromising on location or specification, so it’s perhaps not surprising that house types such as The Gibraltar, which benefit from generous living accommodation and gardens, are proving so popular with homebuyers.”

“With a wealth of amenities, attractive surroundings, and a growing sense of community at Wellesley, families will really benefit from making Maida their home. Purchasers are not only attracted by the prospect of buying a brand new home in a brand new neighbourhood that they can grow into, but they can also take advantage of our Help to Buy scheme at the same time, meaning they can secure one of these beautiful homes with just a 5% deposit, also available for Armed Forces families.”

Ideal for growing families looking to take the next step up the property ladder, the four bedroom Gibraltar townhouse, arranged over three storeys, is designed with families in mind, complete with integral garage and large rear garden, and an attractive exterior with dormer windows to the upper floor.

A welcoming entrance hallway leads to the ground floor accommodation. Perfectly designed for families with young children, the utility room leads off the rear garden, where muddy boots can be stored and dirty clothes placed immediately in the washer/dryer. There is also a generous sized bedroom complete with media hub, which could provide a perfect teenager’s den or a home office, as well as a separate guest cloakroom.

Designed as the central hub of the house, the first floor includes a spacious open plan living/dining room where the family can relax and spend time together. Perfect for everyone to create culinary delights, the stylish kitchen is fully equipped with a range of stainless steel Zanussi appliances, modern units with soft close drawers and cabinets and downlighters. There is also a contemporary family bathroom, complete with bath and shower by Roca.

Offering a great place for the parents to relax and unwind, the master bedroom suite features its own en suite and shower room with smart chrome fittings. The rest of this floor comprises two impressively sized bedrooms each featuring dormer windows and sloping ceilings which add character and charm.

Aldershot will benefit from investment of up to £63 million until 2021, as part of the Local Enterprise Partnership ‘Step Up Town’ scheme , so there’s no better time to invest in this thriving Hampshire town. As extensive regeneration of the town centre takes place, there is more opportunity for shopping and leisure amenities, as well as a wonderful community spirit within Aldershot. The new Westgate Retail and Leisure Park is also an impressive addition to the town, perfect to keep both parents and children occupied on the weekend.

The area boasts excellent schools including Ofsted outstanding All Hallows Catholic School, Heath End School and The Wavell School. The nearby well-regarded Farnborough Sixth Form College is also Ofsted outstanding for families with older children.

Those seeking a more cultural experience can check out the Princes Theatre in the heart of Aldershot. With a youth theatre and regular shows and events, the Princes Theatre is a pivotal and relished part of the community.

Commuting parents need not worry about transport, as Maida is ideally situated for links to local destinations such as Farnham, Farnborough, Woking and Guildford. Travel into London is afforded through convenient and nearby access onto the M3 route or the A31, A3 and M25 road links. Aldershot railway station also boasts direct links to London Waterloo for a hassle-free commute, whilst North Camp station is only a 5-minute drive from the site, with direct lines to Reading and Guildford.

The Gibraltar townhouses are priced from £399,950, and during May, Bellway is offering to pay the Stamp Duty on selected plots. To find out more and to register your interest in a new Bellway home at Maida in Aldershot, visit
