Catalyst: Help to Buy now available at Kite Meadows in Buckinghamshire
Award-winning countryside living in view of the Chiltern Hills
Current data shows that the percentage of Londoners searching for properties outside the capital was up 51% in Spring 2020 compared to the same time in 2019 – showing a growing trend for buyers considering a move outside of the capital.
Helping meet demand, Catalyst are offering an affordable route onto the property ladder at the award-winning Kite Meadows at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, in the picturesque market town of Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire.
A contemporary new development, offering residents sweeping views of the rolling hills and woodlands, the development of 74 two to five bedroom houses is close to Princes Risborough’s picturesque high street, brimming with independent shops and pubs. Full of historic charm, the town has been home to a weekly Thursday market since 1888, while the prehistoric ‘way-marker’, the Pudding Stone, is set in the town’s roundabout.
With Help to Buy available on all two to four bedroom homes, Catalyst are helping to make the move to such a desirable location more affordable.
Markus Kendall-Young, Head of Sales and Marketing at Catalyst, comments: “The pull from city to country is nothing new – over the past 10 years, there has been an extraordinary 78% rise in people leaving the capital, drawn to the romance and escapism of England’s quaint villages. The trend now appears to be growing at an ever faster pace, with demand expanding quickly for spacious homes with private gardens, great access to the countryside, and a close community feel, all within a manageable commute time to the capital.”
“Our contemporary townhouses at Kite Meadows have proven popular with city dwellers, wanting a modern take on this popular house style. Design features such as glass balustraded top-floor balconies and floor to ceiling windows gives each home a modern feel, whilst spreading the living space across three storeys enables buyers to enjoy larger reception rooms, bedrooms and multiple family bathrooms.”
High specification finishes include integrated Smeg kitchen appliances alongside Lemongrass kitchen units, high quality modern sanitaryware, TV points to the lounge, kitchen and all bedrooms, and fitted mirrored wardrobes in all master bedrooms and select second bedrooms. Each home also features a private garden and parking.
Positioned on the edge of Princes Risborough, Kite Meadows’ residents have access to a range of schools nearby, including Princes Risborough Primary School and co-educational secondary school, Princes Risborough School, both within a 16 minute walk of Kite Meadows.
The development is just a five-minute drive from Princes Risborough train station where journeys to London Marylebone take just 37 minutes on Chiltern Railways. Residents can also reach the M40 in just 21 minutes by car, and Heathrow Airport in 40 minutes, making it easy to travel across the UK and beyond.
Prices start from £480,000 for a two bedroom house, £465,000 for a three bedroom house, £550,000 for a four bedroom house and £675,000 for a five bedroom house. Help to Buy is available on two to four bedroom houses.
