Former London Irish and England international player Delon Armitage has paid a visit to Crest Nicholson’s exclusive Park Avenue development in Surrey to take a look at the four bedroom home that has been given his name.
Built on the former London Irish training ground, Crest Nicholson is keen to keep the legacy of the club alive and has named all of the properties at its new development after the greats that played there.
‘The Avenue’ was home to London Irish for 83 years and it was important to Crest Nicholson that the house names properly reflected the club’s past. Homes on the development are named to celebrate many of London Irish’s legends from The Armitage to The Everitt to The Morgan.
Crest Nicholson recognises the responsibility of developing on a historic site with such a strong sporting heritage and is excited to be ushering in a new phase of play – one that celebrates the past and builds a promising future.
Speaking of the development, Delon Armitage, now at Toulon, said: “I’m really excited to lend my name to a great family home on a fantastic development. Sunbury is a beautiful area which I know well, so I can see why there’s been a lot of demand for these homes.”
As London Irish fans will know, Park Avenue is set in a prime location and enjoys a relaxed village lifestyle and beautiful leafy spaces. The handsome period architecture of Sunbury, its welcoming local pubs, restaurants and boutique shops, also help make it an attractive option for first-time buyers and families alike. Some of the properties are available with Help to Buy.
