Like to buy a new home from a developer but can’t wait for it to be built?
Taylor Wimpey has a trio of three bedroom semis on the edge of Wycombe which are ready to move into right now, soon as the conveyancing is sorted.
These family houses with rooms spread over three floors are the last of the Chepstow design in an area called Forest Grove at Pine Trees, the development built on the former RAF station at Daws Hill close to the top of Marlow Hill and the M40 junction off the Handy Cross roundabout.
The interior of the Chepstow has an open plan kitchen and posh dining room on the ground floor, living room opening onto a balcony.
Also two bedrooms and the main bathroom on the first floor and the master bedroom with en suite shower room as well as a further room which can be used as a study or nursery or even a walk-in wardrobe – you choose – on the top floor.
Prices start at £600,000 which provides the possibility for Help to Buy.
The sales office in Daws Hill Lane is open on Sundays and Mondays from 10-5.
Developers are always keen to support the local community where they are building and often it’s by providing a new kit for a junior sports team or local school.
David Wilson Homes is in the good books of parents at Bierton, the village close to where the company is building the Kingsbrook development of three, four and five bedroom homes at Broughton Crossing on the edge of Aylesbury.
The nice builders have donated 100 hi-vis bags (pictured) to the local primary school.
Not only are the bags the right size for the pupils’ PE kit, they make it easier for motorists to spot the children when they’re walking home on dark afternoons after school.
Headteacher Jenny Martin is delighted (she’s pictured with four pupils preparing to try on the rucksacks for size).
She said: “Our junior road safety officers run events throughout the year to promote road safety.
“They’re going to run competitions in school and give the bags away as prizes.”
Quite likely some of the pupils might be among the families who come to live at Kingsbrook in the future.
Prices start at £350,000. The sales centre is open from 10-5.30 Tuesday to Sunday and from 12.30-5.30 on Mondays.
At the other end of the county, over in Rickmansworth, a short drive from the Bucks/Herts border at Little Chalfont, St William, part of the Berkeley Group, is launching a development of 48 apartments on February 3.
The site is less than a mile from the Aquadrome nature reserve.
The development is called Elmswater after Elms Lake, one of the waterways which are part of the landscape in Ricky.
The new flats priced from £570,000 are grouped in two blocks called Heron Lodge and Crane Lodge as a nod to the wildlife drawn to the area by the rivers Chess, Gade and Colne and the Grand Union Canal.
St William is a joint venture between the National Grid and the Berkeley Group.
A spokesman explained: “Our goal is to transform industrial sites from a bygone age into beautiful places.
“We develop gas work sites that have been closed to the public for decades and reconnect them to the community. This restores the land, drives the local economy and helps to regenerate each area.”
Elmswater is less than ten minutes walk from Rickmansworth Station from where the journey into Marleybone takes 27 minutes.
