Buyers flock to Marina Park launch

More than 100 eager house hunters have flocked to the launch of prestigious new homes at an iconic location in Northampton.

Marina Park, on the site of the former Princess Marina Hospital, is the latest development from luxury house builder Charles Church and such is the demand for quality new build homes in the area, dozens of people have visited the showhome this week.

Claire Lambert, sales manager for Charles Church (Midlands) said: “This has been one of our most eagerly-anticipated new developments so we had expected a lot of interest. But even we were surprised by how many people turned up last weekend – and they keep on coming!

“We have a range of three and four bedroom homes available, and have already started to process part exchange applications from several local people keen to get moving. We aim to help them sell their existing homes so they can get the keys to their new Charles Church home quickly and easily.”

Homes at Marina Park are priced from £239,995 and range from the three bedroom detached ‘Birch’ with a spacious living room and dining kitchen to the exquisite ‘Longleat’ which delivers generous living accommodation including a home office, a master bedroom with dressing area and luxurious en suite, a further en suite to bedroom two and a family bathroom.

In addition to part exchange, Charles Church is offering the Government shared equity scheme, Help To Buy at this development.

Claire added: “Help To Buy has been hugely popular as it enables people to secure their dream home with just a five per cent deposit. To find out more, visit Marina Park or any Charles Church development and our experienced sales executives will provide advice on all the assistance schemes available to buyers.”

Situated between Upton and St Crispins, Marina Park is close to lovely open countryside as well as Northampton’s shopping, sports, entertainment, leisure and excellent transport links.

The nearby village of Duston includes three primary schools, a secondary school, several independent shops and small supermarkets, a chemist, a medical centre, a dentist, a post office, a library, hair salons, public houses and three churches.

The Marina Park showhome is open seven days a week from 11am to 5pm. For more information log on to
