CALA Homes hosts 'Hard Hat' weekend for prospective buyers in Farnham

CALA Homes will be hosting a ‘hard hat’ weekend at its Atherton Hill development in Farnham on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May, giving buyers a behind the scenes preview of its three-bedroom ‘Himscot’ and four-bedroom ‘Lulworth’ house types.  

CALA Homes 13 May 2019

Located on Gardeners Hill Road, Atherton Hill comprises a characterful collection of three, four and five bedroom semi-detached and detached properties to meet the needs of a wide range of purchasers. 

Interested purchasers will have the opportunity to get an exclusive ‘hard hat’ tour of the three-bedroom ‘Himscot’ and four-bedroom ‘Lulworth’ housetypes, whilst meeting the CALA sales team to learn more about Help to Buy and the variety of incentives available to help make buying a new home simpler and more affordable. 

Through Help to Buy, 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.

For those with a property to sell, buyers can also utilise CALA’s popular up to 100% Part Exchange service, whereby CALA effectively acts as a cash buyer, saving time, hassle and money, with no agents fees to pay, and offering the peace of mind of being chain-free and being able to stay in your current home until your new CALA home is completed. 

Alison Deakin, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (Thames), said: “The hard hat event on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May offers the perfect opportunity for house hunters to take a sneak peek at the homes at Atherton Hill and find out how Part Exchange or Help to Buy could make moving into their dream home easier and more affordable than they could ever have imagined.

“Situated between the picturesque village of Frensham and thriving market town of Farnham, Atherton Hill provides an idyllic setting to call home, with each of the homes centred around an attractive green with mature trees and scenic views to the south. The development’s picturesque surroundings are perfectly complemented by the wide range of retail and leisure opportunities, outstanding local schooling and transport links to London, Woking and Reading. With so much on offer, the homes will prove popular with buyers looking for a brand new home in Farnham.”

Priced from £795,000, the ‘Lulworth’ is bathed in light, with the stunning open plan kitchen/dining/family room featuring roof windows and French doors opening out to the rear garden. Meanwhile, a separate formal sitting room boasts a large bay window to the front of the property alongside a separate WC and garage on the ground floor. Upstairs, the impressive master bedroom is complete with fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room, alongside a similar second bedroom and two further well-proportioned bedrooms and contemporary family bathroom. The current home of the month, Plot 41 is available at £799,000 with £29,950 Stamp Duty paid, £1,000 towards legal fees and carpets throughout.

Nestled in a small village just two miles from Farnham, Atherton Hill benefits from the best of both worlds, with a large variety of amenities, including high street shops, major supermarkets, restaurants and public parks, while being surrounded by attractive green spaces. 

Whether you drive or catch the train, both modes of transport are convenient for commuters at Atherton Hill. Farnham train station provides connections to London Waterloo in around 53 minutes and Woking in 23 minutes. Or you can reach the capital in approximately 38 minutes from Guildford station, which is a short drive away. Junction 4 of the M3 is located around 13 miles from your front door, making it easy to enjoy a family day out on the south coast, with Portsmouth and Chichester both in easy reach via the M3.

There are also a range of excellent schools nearby including, the Weydon School rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and the renowned independent Frensham Heights School, which is situated about a mile away, making this development perfect for families.
