Kings Barton is an aspirational new suburb of Winchester that will create 2,000 homes around a vibrant centre of shops, leisure and community facilities, as well as a new school and public open space. The development has proven popular with a wide range of purchasers, from commuters and first time buyers, to families and downsizers, with nearly 200 homes now sold.
CALA is encouraging buyers looking for their dream new home to attend the event on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April, to take a tour of the professionally styled ‘Arthur’ showhome and speak to their sales team to find out more about the wide range of incentives on offer to help them make their move to Kings Barton.
Both functional and adaptable, the ‘Arthur’ is set across three impressive floors making it perfect for growing families, larger families or couples that desire that extra space. Featuring generous flowing spaces that can be adjusted to suit a specific way of life, the ‘Arthur’ at Kings Barton has been designed to reflect a contemporary lifestyle, whilst being finished to a high quality standard.
The ground floor is centred by an impressive central hallway providing direct access into a generous sitting room, ideal for more formal gatherings, as well as an impressive kitchen/dining/family room which is perfectly placed for relaxing and socialising with friends and family. Designed to meet the demands of modern family living, the ground floor also benefits from a separate utility room, WC and a study – a perfect hideaway for working from home or for children to do homework. On the first floor, you’ll discover the jewel in the property’s crown in the luxury master bedroom with stylish en suite, separate dressing room and balcony. A modern family bathroom and two further bedrooms, one with en suite, make up the first floor, whilst a further bedroom with en suite on the second floor offers extra privacy for visitors or older children.
Priced from £895,000, The Arthur is available to purchase through CALA’s popular up to 100% Part Exchange service. Perfect for those wary of getting caught up in a lengthy property chain, CALA’s Part Exchange service works by CALA effectively acting as a buyer for a seller’s property, providing them with the peace of mind that the sale will complete in time for them to move into their new home. With no estate agents’ fees, marketing or report costs incurred, the service can also save thousands of pounds on the overall cost of the move. The sale price is determined following two free independent valuations and the completion dates for sale and purchase are identical, so there are no concerns over temporary accommodation or the need for a bridging loan.
CALA is also offering its Armed Forces Discount at Kings Barton, for both serving and retired members of the Regular and Reserve UK Armed Forces, or those that have passed Phase 1 of training. The incentive includes a concession of 1.5% on the purchase of a new CALA home, along with £1,000 towards legal fees if using one of CALA’s recommended solicitors.
What’s more, the discount can be used in conjunction with the Government-backed Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme. With the Home and Communities Agency’s (HCA) Help to Buy Equity Loan, the Government lends the buyer up to 20% of the cost of the newly built home, so they only need as little as a 5% cash deposit. This also means that they can access lower interest rates on a 75% mortgage loan. There are no fees or interest payable on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning the home, and buyers will legally own 100% of their home.
Alison Deakin, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (Thames), said: “With flexible accommodation over three storeys, The Arthur at Kings Barton can be easily adapted to meet the needs of the owner and will appeal to those at all stages of the property ladder. Its layout is ideal for retired couples who need the top floor as a guest suite for when the family comes to visit; or large families whose teenagers and older children need their own space and independence, which can be difficult to achieve in a traditional two-storey home.
“We would urge purchasers to come to the showhome launch on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April, to take a tour of the property and see for themselves how this flexible house style would work to meet their needs. Kings Barton continues to receive a high level of interest from buyers looking to make the move into their brand new home in Winchester and we anticipate that this stunning property won’t be available for long.”
