Parkland views, excellent transport connections and shopping rarely come together outside a major city centre. However at Parkside Place in Sudbury, north west London, Countryside Properties has launched a development of spacious one and two bedroom apartments that offer all these advantages with the added bonus of FirstBuy on the one-bedroom apartments. FirstBuy is a Government-backed scheme which means that purchasers require a deposit of as little as £8,000* to enable 100 per cent ownership for only 80 per cent of the price.
As part of Crest Nicholson’s mission to become a greener and more eco-friendly house builder, new residents at its Orchard Gate development in Shoreham-by-Sea are being offered the choice of a free bus pass for a month or a fold-up bike.
