As the admission process for the 2012 school intake gets underway, many parents are considering a move to ensure they live in the right catchment area for the best schools. Marlborough is no exception. Renowned for its excellent schools, the historic Wiltshire town is extremely popular with parents and Crest Nicholson’s School Walk development has the solution. Situated just five minutes’ walk from the internationally renowned St John’s school, it boasts three and four bedroom family houses available to move into straight away.
What’s more, for buyers either struggling with or dreading the thought of selling their existing home, Crest Nicholson’s Part Exchange incentive can take away the hassle of moving house by negating the need to find a buyer for an existing property, meaning purchasers can enjoy their new home much faster than usual.
Laura Osborne, Sales Manager at Crest Nicholson South West comments: “School Walk has proven extremely popular with young families, especially thanks to its proximity to popular local schools such as St Johns and St Mary’s C of E Infant School. The range of three and four bedroom homes at the development are perfect for families looking to upsize to something bigger who want to live in a friendly community within walking distance of Marlborough town centre. The fact that the houses are ready to move into now is ideal for those families looking to relocate ahead of applying for next year’s school places.”
Ulrika Rosedale and her family fell in love with School Walk after deciding they wanted to move to a new build home. With two young children under the age of five, School Walk offered the ease of access to local schools and amenities, as well as the low-maintenance living they were looking for. Ulrika commented: “I had previously lived in an older house and was excited by the prospect of living in a new build home. I love the fact that everything is brand new, the living room is spacious and I have wonderful views out over the Wiltshire countryside. The added bonus is School Walk’s proximity to my son’s school. We’re just minutes’ walk away now, and with my youngest starting pre-school there in January, we really are ideally placed.”
School Walk, comprises a collection of 45 traditionally designed properties, including two bedroom apartments, maisonettes and coach houses, along with a selection of three and four bedroom homes. Set within an established residential enclave close to Marlborough’s historic centre, it has proved extremely popular with buyers since its launch earlier this year.
Prices at School Walk currently start at £240,000 for a three bedroom Hickstead home and Part Exchange is available on the four bedroom Chepstow houses situated on plots ten and 11.
