Savvy homebuyers looking to invest now and build up equity in their new home should consider the one of the last few properties at The Lanes, part of Countryside’s, Wickhurst Green near Horsham.
Set in the well-heeled county of West Sussex where 80 per cent of the land is rural and half is designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status, The Lanes at Wickhurst Green is a community-driven new development of two, three, four and five bedroom properties. All are finished to a high quality standard synonymous with Countryside, and boast modern flexible layouts to suit growing families.
Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside, comments: “The Lanes has proven extremely popular, which is why there is only a handful of properties still available. Purchasers have seen the potential in investing in a family home here, which once their children have moved out, they can downsize from and cash in on the significant price increase. We urge potential purchasers to come and view the final remaining homes, so that they do not miss out on this fantastic chance to secure a home in this prime area of the south east.”
The Wakeford is a stylish example of the properties still available at The Lanes. The four-bedroom, three-storey family home offers over 1,500 sq ft of luxury and spacious living. Available from £465,000 it offers great value for money and is ideal for families wanting to invest in a new property within a sought after location.
The entrance leads to an open plan living and dining room, complete with a light and airy garden room with French doors opening onto a beautiful garden, making this property perfect for entertaining all year round. The sleek kitchen design includes white stone worktops, and a range of ‘A’ rated integrated kitchen appliances.
Other properties available at The Lanes include the attractive three bedroom Churchill house design, which features an open plan living/dining area leading to a spacious garden room. Meanwhile the beautiful Heydon house design is a spacious cottage benefitting from two large double bedrooms and an open plan ground floor design. All house designs also benefit from front and rear gardens as well as communal green spaces in keeping with the countryside environment.
Although these new houses are exceptional value for money, location has not been compromised. Wickhurst Green is situated in the rural area of Broadbridge Heath and has been designed to harmonise with its traditional surroundings. The development offers classically styled homes, green open spaces, footpaths and cycle routes and also ‘grow your own’ allotments. Meanwhile the village centre provides a social hub for all Broadbridge Heath locals, offering retail, sports facilities and a primary school.
Horsham’s local market is a great asset, attracting shoppers from miles around to sample the unique produce on offer. Every Thursday and Saturday, the market offers a great selection of stalls, with traders old and new, serving fresh local produce and exclusive crafts and gifts.
For those who love the great outdoors, Southwater Country Park is six miles from The Lanes. This 85 acre former brickwork site includes three lakes, wildlife rich grassland and pockets of flowering woodland. Alternatively, Parham House and Gardens in Horsham is host to major park events throughout the spring and summer months. Closer to home, two large neighbourhood play areas designed for a range of age groups are being created, together with several community sports pitches with pavilion.
Neighbouring Horsham boasts great schools in and around the area, including Shelley Primary which is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and is within walking distance of the development. The secondary schools and colleges in Horsham include Tanbridge House, Forest, The Weald and Millais Schools, some of the top in the country. Farlington is also an outstanding independent girls' day and boarding school located just outside Horsham, where 57% of all A level grades achieved were at A/A*.
