New build properties offer the widest market appeal, according to over a third of respondents surveyed in a new industry report. The findings reiterate the resurgence new homes have enjoyed in the past decade, as they now rival the attraction of their period property equivalents.
Crest Nicholson’s Orchard Gate development in Shoreham-by-Sea encapsulates these findings as there are currently just two properties remaining. The countdown is on for buyers wanting to get hold of one of the brand new luxury four-bedroom houses, which are situated just a short 20 minute journey into Brighton town centre.
The two remaining ‘Crawley’ houses visualise Orchard Gate’s community centred narrative. Designed with the family in mind, the properties combine contemporary features with all the essential home comforts. The stylish kitchens are fully fitted with brushed steel Bosch appliances and there is a separate dining area with French doors, which open onto a spacious garden. All four bedrooms are a good size and the master bedroom is designed with luxury in mind, which includes an en suite, fitted wardrobe and private terrace.
Christine Tiernan, Sales and Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson South, said: “Newly built properties without doubt have far wider appeal now than in years’ past, with purchasers increasingly recognising the benefits of having a home purposefully designed to facilitate contemporary living.
“These beautiful houses represent the final milestone of the Orchard Gate story. This really is the last opportunity for buyers to purchase a brand new property at our successful Orchard Gate development and we look forward to welcoming the final residents. Anyone interested should arrange a viewing to see first hand the quality and lifestyle that Orchard Gate has to offer.”
The remaining four-bedroom town houses at Orchard Gate are only a short walk to the beach and the popular Holmbush shopping centre. Shoreham Mainline Station is close by – with direct services to London Victoria in just over an hour.
Prices start from £437,500 for the four-bedroom houses. For more information visit www.crestnicholson.com/orchardgate or call 0870 750 8401.
