Apartment living is becoming a popular choice for a range of different property seekers in Bedfordshire, from first time buyers taking the first step onto the property ladder to those looking to downsize to a more manageable home.
Barratt Homes Northampton has recognised the growing need for apartments at its Great Denham Park development. It is currently expertly crafting a range of two bedroom apartments at the Greenkeepers Road development that are expected to be in demand with a range of buyers.
Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said:
“There are many advantages to apartment living and we are seeing a rise in the number of downsizers who are benefitting from these as well as first time buyers. Apartments as a whole are becoming more in-demand with buyers because they are well suited to a range of different lifestyles and customers.”
The advantages of apartment living include:
Everything you need is all on one floor
Apartments offer single story living which is ideal for those looking to downsize and find a more manageable property to live in. Having everything you need on one floor delivers a relaxed lifestyle, thoughtful design and provides homebuyers with a spacious yet easy to maintain interior.
Low maintenance offering
Low maintenance properties are an easy win for many buyers who don’t have the time to mow the lawn or clean a house from top to bottom. Single storey living lends itself well to a convenient lifestyle.
Open plan living is great for socialising
Apartments offer a large open plan living space with dining and kitchen areas, making it a perfect space for entertaining friends and family. This modern style of living is becoming increasingly popular with everyone from first time buyers and young couples to empty nesters and people who have retired.
Great Denham Park as a development is a thriving new community located just a short drive from Bedford town centre and close to the Great River Ouse. It currently is offering a range of two bedroom apartments and four bedroom houses.
The transport links by both road and rail are excellent, and you are also just 20 minutes from Milton Keynes offering a wide range of shops, restaurants and entertainment.
The government backed Help to Buy scheme is also available on a number of the homes at the development, meaning you can secure your dream home with as little as a 5% deposit.
This scheme means the government will lend the buyer 20% of the value of the property in the form of an interest-free equity loan for five years. Then buyers can access some of the great deals available, including Stamp Duty contributions, legal and home removal fees paid, and flooring included on selected plots, for a 75% mortgage, making new homes much more affordable.
First time buyers will also benefit from the scrapped stamp duty taxes on properties up to the value of £300,000, which was announced in last year’s Autumn Budget.
