Choosing an apartment is no longer viewed as a compromise for more mature purchasers as at Persimmon Homes’ development in St Neots the range of flats available mean downsizing is both a spacious and a luxurious option.
Persimmon Homes has noticed an increase in the number of ‘empty nesters’ buying its apartments at Hydro in St Neots, which includes a range of two and unique three bedroom varieties, as couples whose children have left home are deciding to free up their hard earned equity to pursue other interests, whilst being safe in the knowledge that their home is both sizeable and welcoming.
David Hodgson, sales director for Persimmon Homes East Midlands, comments: “Among the homes attracting empty nesters are apartments, and we have noticed that our selection at Hydro are proving particularly popular due to their size and the development’s beautiful picturesque and waterside location, coupled with the fact that St Neots’ town centre is a short distance away.”
David adds: “The combination of a low maintenance home and a sought after location, coupled with the luxury specification on offer is proving attractive to empty nesters.”
Apartments at Hydro are priced from £209,995 for a two bedroom first floor design or from £212,995 for a three bedroom Calder ground floor apartment.
Hydro, which is now in its last phase, is situated in a beautiful location, as the River Ouse and a tranquil lake are situated on the doorstep. The benefits of waterside living speak for themselves and as attractive factor is often seen as a luxury, it will come as quite a surprise to many househunters that the waterfront homes are extremely affordable for the St Neots area.
Hydro has excellent access to major towns and cities and whilst the development enjoys a quiet location, it also has good transport links north and south via the A1 and A428, making it ideal for commuters. Bedford is just a 20 minute drive away and Cambridge can be reached in 30 minutes, or leave the car at home, jump on the train and you can be in Kings Cross in 45 minutes.
