New phase of homes now launched at Hopefield Grange

CALA is delighted to have launched a new phase of properties at our Hopefield Grange development in Benson.

CALA Homes 14 September 2020

Known as Merlin Gardens, this further collection of 145 homes will include a wide range of properties from two to five bedroom homes, catering for everyone from first time buyers to growing families.

Amongst the first properties to be released is a rage of impressive four and five bedroom detached family homes, priced from £620,000 to £830,000.

The thoughtful layouts, light and spacious interiors and attention to detail in these homes is showcased in the professionally-designed Oatvale showhome which is now available to view by appointment.

Located just a few miles from RAF Benson, Hopefield Grange has proven popular with armed forces personnel who have taken advantage of our Armed Forces Discount. The initiative offers 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. It is available for both serving and retired members of the Regular or Reserve UK Armed Forces, or those that have passed Phase 1 of training. 

What’s more, the discount can be used in conjunction with the Government-backed Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme. On properties up to £600,000, both first time buyers and home movers can take advantage the scheme which enables buyers to purchase a new home with just a 5% deposit. The Government provides an equity loan of up to 20% of the purchase price, meaning buyers only need to secure a mortgage for the remaining 75%. Try our Help to Buy Calculator.

Other schemes designed to help buyers make their move to Merlin Gardens include Mortgage Pay, which gives homeowners the option of a break from their regular mortgage payments when they first move in. CALA could provide a discount on their property equivalent to up to 12 months mortgage payments. Find out more.

For those with a property to sell, we can provide a Part Exchange service which means there is no need to go through the process of selling on the open market. CALA effectively acts as a cash buyer, saving on estate agents fees and providing peace of mind that your sale will complete ready for you to move into your new home. 

Merlin Gardens at Hopefield Grange is located in the characterful village of Benson and is well-served with a number of local shops on the High Street, just a short walk from the development.

On the edge of the village along the River Thames is Benson Lock, perfect for weekend walks, as well as a boating marina and popular riverside cafe.

Education is well-provided for, with a pre-school and C of E primary school situated close to the development, complemented by nearby Wallingford School for secondary level education. 

For commuters, Didcot Parkway Station offers services to London Paddington in less than 45 minutes and Oxford in just 12 minutes.
