Award-winning housebuilder, CALA Homes, is urging purchases searching for their dream home to look into its sought-after Amlets Place development in Cranleigh. A small number of three and four bedroom homes are available.
Of the three bedroom homes available, a selection are the ‘Brook’ housetype - a detached home that is designed with a choice of three layouts. The options include a fully open plan living space throughout the entirety of the ground floor or having either the spacious kitchen/dining room or generous sitting room situated at the rear of the property. In each of the Brook homes, a convenient downstairs WC is accompanied by convenient storage cupboards for clutter-free living. Upstairs the master bedroom is completed by an en suite, whilst the two remaining bedrooms are served by a stylish family bathroom.
Priced from £435,000, the Brook is available to purchase with the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme – an initiative designed for first time and existing homeowners, whereby the Government lends the buyer up to 20% of the cost of the newly built home, so they only need 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. Purchasers require a deposit of just £21,750, with a 20% government loan of £87,000 and a mortgage of just £348,500 to secure a home at Amlets Place priced at £435,000.
Amlets Place residents, Liam Beauvois and Lucie Jennings, purchased The Brook as their first home together, and were immediately taken by the flexible layout of the home.
Lucie said: “Myself and Liam are both from Surrey and had been keen to centre our house hunt around Cranleigh due to its countryside setting and great local amenities. We viewed a number of new developments in the area, but Amlets Place really stood out to us. It’s well-designed, doesn’t look overcrowded and the green spaces throughout are a really nice touch – it was certainly the nicest development we visited by far. We were ideally looking for a detached home, and to be able to find one with three-bedrooms within our budget was a huge bonus. With the Brook we had a choice of three layouts which suited us perfectly – it’s so nice having the power to choose your own home layout. We were really keen to have the kitchen backing onto the garden and the flexibility of the Brook enabled us to do exactly that.”
Nicki Dennis, Sales and Marketing Director at CALA Homes South Home Counties, said: “The three-bedroom ‘Brook’ offers great versatility, enabling purchasers to select a home layout that suits their needs and lifestyle best. Due to its flexibility, The Brook is suitable for first time buyers, second steppers and downsizers alike. There are now just a selection of The Brook homes remaining, so we’d encourage house hunters to get in touch soon to avoid missing out on their perfect home. With each home completed to an exceptional specification with a high quality finish, all that’s left to do is add those personal touches which turn a house into a home.”
