Most property brochures are full of adjectives to describe luscious, leafy surroundings and ample, spacious, dimensions. Everything’s high quality and built to luxury specifications. As you find yourself gazing at the glossy paper pile in front of you, how do you choose your forever home?

Perhaps a better question is … does the home deliver?

Dreaming of a forever home

Our new Crown Gardens development show home in Farnham Royal opened in April 2018. As at August 2018, these four five-bedroom homes are sold out at an average asking price of over £1.6 million. In a climate where the choir seems to be singing that higher value homes are harder to sell, or take longer to sell, we’ve defied some seasoned pundits.

What drives these sales for us is our commitment to building high quality homes in the right location; proximity to amenities and transport links is always high up on a homebuyer’s wish list. Our buyers also appreciate our detailed preview events which aim to help them imagine how their new home will look so they can buy off-plan.

Crown Gardens, Farnham Royal

Richard Werth, CEO of Troy Homes says: “For those who view their home not only as their perfect forever home, but also an investment, nothing appeals like certainty. This comes in three forms; the certainty of a quality build, the flow and form in the layout of the home itself, and the confidence in the overall property market whereby the price is pitched fairly. If it’s within the right location, that home that will increase in price for years to come.”

“The secret to our success with Crown Gardens lies in our approach to selecting the people we work with, from first ideas to final closures. The choice of location is additionally very important to homebuyers. For those wanting larger homes this means property privacy. Bigger gardens, where no one looks in upon you as you enjoy your outdoor space, is a draw for those moving out of London.”

Moving out of London

Three out of our four buyers are moving out of the city and into Farnham Royal. Our homes offer excellent parking, substantial gardens and enviable transport links. This trend reflects shifting to London ‘commuter lifestyles’ where the Independent reports approximately 100,000 a year are leaving the capital for greener pastures. At Crown Gardens, which is only 25 miles from London, a thirst for the outdoors can be satisfied after work and at weekends. Dogwalkers, cyclists, walkers and nature-lovers enjoy the close by 500 acres of gorgeous parkland at Burnham Beeches (0.7 mile). A place in the wild where people can re-engage influenced our site choice for Crown Gardens.

This type of development and opportunity is proving very popular. We’d love to advise you about some of our locations for your next move. We have several appealing developments launching soon in Chesham, Amersham and Royston which provide similar location benefits.
