Pent up demand sees new homes sell off-plan
A new homes development by Dandara in Buntingford, Hertfordshire was forced to delay its planned launch back in April due to the nationwide lockdown.
Following the unavoidable delays, Keepers Chase, the development of just 65 new homes, was finally able to officially launch officially last week. Despite the delayed launch, Dandara still sold an impressive 50% of the new homes off-plan. The majority of the buyers have been first time buying couples from a London post code, all looking to escape the capital to commutable pastures greener.
Simon Pendlebury, Sales and Marketing Director for Dandara says: “We were ready to launch Keepers Chase back in April but obviously the timing couldn’t have been worse as we quickly shut down our sites to ensure everyone’s safety. Buntingford has always been a desirable commuter location and so we were expecting the new homes to be popular with this demographic of buyer. However, to sell more than half of the homes off-plan, has shown us that this lockdown period really fast-tracked the desire of some who had perhaps only one day planned to leave London.”
Keepers Chase by Dandara is well located in the market town of Buntingford and offers an attractive range of two, three and four-bedroom homes. The development sits on the River Rib on the outskirts of the picturesque town which boasts a collection of independent shops and pubs. With a stylish variety of different house styles to choose from the development will suit a range of homebuyers from those just starting out with their first property, growing families as well as those looking to downsize.
Simon adds: “Keepers Chase would tick many boxes for anyone looking for more access to open space whilst remaining connected to London, Cambridge and the South East. The development itself sits alongside the River Rib and so those living there can enjoy the great outdoor space and community that exists in this attractive part of East Hertfordshire.”
In an ideal commuter spot just off the A10, convenient transport links include services to London in just 40 minutes from the nearby Ware Rail Station, whilst 30 minute services to Cambridge are available from Stevenage Rail Station.
Voted the UK’s best place to live in the ‘Halifax Quality of Life survey 2020’, East Hertfordshire is an appealing location for homebuyers. The quality of state schools in the town is a major draw for families. Millfield First and Nursery School, Layston C of E First School, Edwinstree C of E Middle and Freman College, the upper school and sixth form college, all have an excellent reputation.
