Try something new at Tamarind Close

Try something new at Tamarind Close The spacious six-bedroom house at the new Tamarind Close development in Bushey is now available to view. Ideal for families, The Cypress is a four-bedroom house on the new Belstone Homes development in leafy Bushey. Despite our fascination with period properties, a newly built home offers many advantages as recent buyer Mr Bull of Middlesex can testify. Especially if you have to juggle moving with a hectic work schedule and busy family life!

Having purchased both new and established properties in the past, Mr Bull and his family knew they wanted a new build house when they decided to move from their home in Middlesex last year.

The couple’s first step was to contact local new homes specialists Preston Bennett, who introduced them to a stunning new Belstone Homes development in Bushey, Tamarind Close. After seeing plans and an initial visit to its attractive leafy location, the couple wasted no time in reserving one of the properties.

Mr Bull explains: “We were specifically looking for a new build home and the fact that this one was in a small secluded close really appealed. Buying new means everything is fitted and ready to move into. This is particularly advantageous when you have children and work long hours. It makes moving that little bit easier and quicker.”

“Older homes can be problematic and time-consuming,” he continues. “You usually need to do some renovating or decorating and there is the issue of an onward chain. Buying early off-plan at Tamarind Close, however, gave us plenty of time to plan and sell our current home. Plus, it gave us the opportunity to get involved at the construction stage, choosing kitchen and bathroom fittings, fixtures and colour schemes to personalise it to our own tastes and needs.”

Mr Bull and his wife were immediately taken by the high quality and location of the Tamarind Close development. The quiet and picturesque setting particularly appealed to the family, being ideal for children as well as in close proximity to a host of amenities for day-to-day living.

“Having never viewed a Belstone home before, I was extremely impressed by the great care and attention they put into their properties. I was also surprised at how flexible and accommodating they were. In fact, the service from both Preston Bennett and Belstone was excellent throughout,” he enthuses.

Tamarind Close is a haven of just five detached new houses from Belstone Homes in leafy Bushey, Hertfordshire. Set in desirable Woodfield Rise, the development comprises an excellent mix of four-bedroom, five-bedroom and six-bedroom homes offering spacious accommodation with modern amenities.

Quality is a key watchword throughout the properties. Granite worktops and custom built Miele units come as standard in the kitchen, which is fully equipped with integrated appliances including a multi-function oven and grill, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and water softener. The master bedrooms, meanwhile, benefit from en-suite facilities and built-in wardrobes.

As well as buying their new home through the Stanmore agency, the Bulls also successfully sold their existing home through its Established Homes department.

Mr Bull concludes: “As a busy working parent, much of the correspondence with Preston Bennett was via email, so I had to put considerable trust in them. I’m pleased to say they did not disappoint!”

These superb homes at Tamarind Close are priced from £820,000. A viewhome is available to visit by appointment every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm. For further information, visit
