Why home buyers choose Bristol

“It’s the combination of location, great design and realistic prices that is making Essence the new sought after address. I would urge anyone interested to act quickly. There are only 2 one and two bedroom apartments left on the current release at prices starting from just £114,000. This is the last opportunity to own a home at Essence at such great value for money.”

Nigel Palmer, MD of Linden Homes Western which currently has three developments of apartments in Bristol with more planned, is happy to be investing in the city.

“We maintained a good level of sales of apartments in Bristol throughout 2009 and I am convinced it will continue because Bristol is such a great place to live. Yes of course we have had to introduce incentives to get people moving and in particular we have concentrated on helping first time buyers get onto the property ladder. We have maximised use of the government’s HomeBuy Direct scheme which has also been a great enabler.”

As for the future, Linden Homes will be launching its new Great Western Dockyard development in the spring and Nigel Palmer can’t wait.

“The city continues to win awards for its quality of life and with the ambitious regeneration projects underway we are confident that there will be continued demand for our homes.” 

Linden Homes is building apartments at Montpelier, Old Market and St George – all desirable areas close to the city centre action. Prices start from £114,000 for a one bedroom apartment and details for all the developments are available from the Linden One Stop on 0845 676 0128 open daily from 10am until 5pm.
