Exclusive four-bedroom house, The Hollyhock, launches at Wexham Green

A superb new four-bedroom detached house, The Hollyhock, has launched at Wexham Green in Berkshire. This exclusive family home is the only one of its type and buyers wanting to review its layout and spaciousness will be able to visit the view home when it opens on 20th October.

The two-storey home provides a generous 1,559 sq ft of flexible space; a large open-plan kitchen/diner flows through to a garden room, creating a wonderful space for entertaining and relaxing, while a separate living room provides a haven away from the hubbub of family life. All the living areas open on to the garden and patio to maximise enjoyment of the outdoors in warmer weather.

There are three double bedrooms and the fourth smaller bedroom could equally be used as a study, playroom or snug, depending on the family’s needs. The elegant master bedroom features an en suite shower room, large dressing area and fitted wardrobes.

In addition, there are two parking spaces on the drive and an integrated garage which has an electric car charging point, an eco-friendly feature that is rarely found in new homes.

Wexham Green is situated on the fringes of Wexham and Stoke Poges villages, adjacent to the green belt and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s within easy reach of the excellent amenities in Slough and is less than a mile from Slough station, which has fast connections to London in as little as 21 minutes.

The Hollyhock is priced at £700,000 and will soon be ready to move into, which means that families can settle in well before the end of the year.

So Resi Sutton

Homes in desirable South West London are made affordable with shared ownership

If you think that buying a high-quality new home in Sutton, South West London, is unaffordable, So Resi Sutton may change your mind. This collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments is part of the landmark development Sutton Point, and you could buy a 25% share in a one-bedroom home for as little as £73,750 (full market value £295,000) with a ten per cent deposit of just £7,375.

Through shared ownership, homebuyers pay straightforward monthly payments, which combine the mortgage on the share they have purchased and a payment to So Resi on the rest. They also pay a service charge.

The homes at So Resi Sutton are in the West Tower of Sutton Point, an exciting £90m mixed-use development by CNM Estates. Due for completion later this year, Sutton Point will include shops, restaurants, a health and fitness centre and children’s play area.

Inside the homes, the contemporary open-plan living/dining space is light and airy with full height windows; the area opens out onto a balcony. The excellent specification includes an elegant white Symphony Manhattan kitchen fitted with the latest appliances, including ceramic floor tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom as well as underfloor heating throughout.

On selected homes, allocated parking spaces are located in the underground car park and a cycle store is also provided.

Commuting could not be easier from Sutton Station, which is just a couple of minutes’ walk away. Trains to London Victoria take as little as 25 minutes and direct trains reach Gatwick in around 45 minutes.

External CGI of Trinity Walk, Woolwich by Lovell Homes

Across town with the costs down!

News hit last week that millions of rail users in the UK will see the price of regulated rail fares rise by up to 3.6% this month. With commuters said to be the worst-hit by the increase, which is the highest since January 2013, we’ve taken a look at homes ideally located near alternative modes of transport which provide more beneficial routes in to work both financially and in terms of health.

Trinity Walk by Lovell Homes is situated in Woolwich, South East London meaning you can fly to work via the Emirates Air Line, which provides a cable car link across the River Thames between the Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Victoria Docks. This quirky mode of transport is operated by Transport for London and the duration of a single crossing is reduced to just five minutes in rush hour. Prices start at £3.50 per ticket each way, which equates to just £161 per calendar month if there is the maximum of 23 working days in the month. If you’re afraid of heights, why not take the River Bus Express, which operates from 20 piers between Putney and Woolwich. Your journey is made even easier now you can use contactless or Oyster cards to pay.

The homes at Chiswick Gate, which are available through shared ownership with Thames Valley Housing, are conveniently located to give residents access to a wide number of cycle paths in and around Chiswick. These paths provide residents with an alternative and active route in to work, and is also both economical and environmentally friendly, plus you can ride by Chiswick House and Gardens for a more scenic route.

At PHM we like to keep up with the latest goings-on, so make sure you check out our other blogs to see what we’ve been up to and for some of our top PR tips and opinions!

A home on the Downs

New on Property House Marketing’s books this month is this bespoke six-bedroom, four-storey house in Guildford, comprising over 6500 sq. ft., and benefitting from an enviable elevated position just a few yards from the North Downs in Surrey.

Alongside its picturesque views across the Downs and convenient location – just a 21-minute walk to Guildford train station – the sense of space at Northdowns Heights is what sets it apart from the rest. The home’s expansive living areas are designed not just for family living but for entertaining on a large scale too, with floor-to-ceiling glazing opening onto the rear terrace and extending this space in warmer weather.

The hub of the house is undoubtedly the sitting, dining and kitchen space, where each area is clearly defined and the dining and sitting rooms afford extensive views to the front and over the rear garden respectively. From the dining area, doors also open onto a large terrace from which the fabulous view over the Surrey Hills can be enjoyed over a morning coffee. There is also a formal dining room and study.

The leisure and entertaining space doesn’t stop there; on the lower ground floor there is a large gym and shower room as well as a media room that includes a fun bar area.

Externally, the expertise of award-winning landscape architect Kevin Murphy is clearly evident; his imaginative yet intuitive design of the rear garden uses a multi-layer approach, making the most of the space by creating distinctive, separate areas and providing a stunning backdrop for the home.

Northdowns Heights is on the market for £3.5m. For more information, or to arrange an appointment to view the property, please contact Hill Clements (01483 300300) or email info@hillclements.com.

Meet Louise, PHM’s newest team member!

We’re delighted to introduce our new Account Executive, Louise Jarvis, who joined the Property House Marketing team in October.
Louise graduated from the University of Surrey this year with a degree in English Literature. Having worked in marketing and events throughout her time at university, she is already experienced in promoting people and products.
Louise has a keen interest in property, and her passion for writing means she already shares PHM’s ethos – doesn’t hurt either that she knows where to put an apostrophe!
Louise describes her dream home as “an old barn conversion in the heart of Surrey’s countryside, with a mixture of modern and rustic furnishings. If it’s got bundles of character and a big garden with a comfy bench where I can drink a cup of tea and read my favourite book, I’m sold.”

Glorious Guildford up for sale

Our CowParade cow Glorious Guildford is back in the UK ready to go to auction this Thursday with some of her bovine buddies after a busy month of globetrotting.

 

Over the last six weeks, Glorious Guildford has visited a host of wonderful countries including Egypt, Australia and Rome – where she met up with fellow Challengers cows, Roman Cow and Doctor Moo. Our Instagram competition was hugely popular and we are delighted to announce Sian Johns as the winner of the prize draw!

 

The fun isn’t over yet… we still have the auction to look forward to. It is hoped each cow will raise a beefy sum which will be split between her sponsors’ chosen charity – in our case, the disabled children’s charity Challengers – and the Surrey Hills Trust Fund.

 

By taking part in the bidding, Glorious Guildford’s new owner can not only take home a piece of art by renowned, award-winning artist, Colette Clegg, but also raise money for a vitally important local charity. If you’re interested in buying Glorious Guildford, or know anyone who might be, please register your bids online here ahead of the auction that takes place at Sandown Park Racecourse on Thursday 20th October at 8:00pm.

Cause for celebration at the National Housing Awards

Last Thursday was a successful day for Property House Marketing and our clients, Network Homes and Affinity Sutton, who between them picked up a hat trick of gongs at the National Housing Awards.

Hosted by Pointless presenter, Alexander Armstrong, the glittering awards ceremony was held at the Lancaster Hotel in London. Hundreds of guests were in attendance, including some of the UK’s biggest and most well-known housing associations, all hoping to bag an award.

Over the next couple of months, there are more awards in store including the British Home Awards ceremony on Friday 14th October, as well as the What House? Awards ceremony on Friday 18th November when we hope to celebrate more success with our clients.

If you’ve worked on a project for which you are particularly proud and would like to shout about it, please call us on 01483 561119.

Metro and Mail focus on Metis Homes

Journalist Andrea Dean zoomed in on Dorchester, the little-known setting for scenes recently shot for two top TV series, Broadchurch and Wolf Hall, for her weekly area focus in the Metro this week.

The spotlight feature highlighted new homes available in the area, including Eastgate, a collection of luxury townhouses by Metis Homes. You can read our blog about the development here.

Andrea notes that Dorchester is rightly revered for its “stunning scenery and great transport links”. Eastgate comfortably ticks these boxes as it is only 0.7 miles away from Dorchester’s two rail stations, Dorchester South and Dorchester West, which provide regular links to Bristol and London Waterloo. As for stunning scenery, the balconies at Eastgate provide striking views of Mill Stream and the surrounding countryside.

Back on home ground, Catherine’s Walk, a development in Guildford featuring lovely townhouses and modern apartments, also by Metis Homes, starred this week on the front page of The Location, a property supplement distributed with the Daily Mail, under the title The Ultimate Combination of Town and Country. The development, which is sure to have caught the eye of readers due to the advert’s prominent position, is soon to be released so those interested best get in touch with Metis Homes right away.

PHM’s clients enjoyed diverse coverage in March’s edition of Showhouse magazine

Receiving press coverage always puts a spring in our step and to our delight, news of Pelican Media’s new property marketing app, which was recently showcased for the first time at an off-plan sales launch at Searcys at the top of the Gherkin, made it into this month’s Showhouse.

The piece focuses on the app itself, designed specifically for the iPad Pro, which provides users with an CGI plan of the apartments. It also give sales advisers all the information they need right at their fingertips, meaning the app is a great tool for both buyers and sales agents. Gary Patrick, regional sales director for Barratt London, the first developer to use the new technology, acknowledges that the app: “really does help the selling process as it engages interactively with the potential purchaser – we are delighted with the results”.

In addition, Pelican’s ‘Turning Heads’ advert featured in journalist Ginetta Vedrickas’ marketing column, Ad of the Month, for its simple, yet effective headline. A Q&A with director Tony Nicol, on how Pelican came up with the concept, accompanied the piece. For more information about Pelican visit pelican.gb.com.

Also featured in this month’s issue was journalist Michael Dineen’s one to one interview with Adam O’Brien, managing Director of Metis Homes. Organised by PHM, the interview covers Adam’s understated entrance into the field of housebuilding, and his rise to managing director at Metis Homes. Michael explains how Adam’s education in psychology has filtered into Metis Homes’ style of operation, which focuses on building both homes and success: “Listen to the neighbours; listen to the planning officials; listen to the customers”.
