Gloucestershire's rolling countryside, pretty Cotswold villages, fantastic transport links and first class culture and shopping make it a sought-after place to live. Developers in the region currently have a diverse range of new homes available in both historic and new village settings - suiting buyers seeking traditional or contemporary living.
When it comes to naming new homes, there are a huge range of choices available to housebuilders from something natured related that will make the buyer feel tranquil to something tied into the heritage of the area. Berkeley has gone for a different approach at the Cambridge Riverside development. They've named each of the apartment blocks after graduates of Cambridge University.
Berkeley Homes has enjoyed such success at its exclusive Cobbetts Wood development in Fleet, Hampshire that there is just one home remaining on the market. ‘Charnwood House' is for sale at £995,000 and is the last to be sold of just five homes that comprise the development.
Despite the global economic uncertainty, the London property market will continue to buck the trend by going from strength to strength, fuelled primarily by a fundamental shortage of new homes against growing demand, driven partly by rising activity among international homebuyers.
As one of the safest places to invest in property worldwide, London is often misconceived as being too pricey for anyone other than oligarchs investment bankers and CEOs. There can be no doubt there is a London bubble which has withstood the credit crunch and the market continues to thrive, however there are also a wide range of regeneration areas across the city.
As one of the safest places to invest in property worldwide, London is often misconceived as being too pricey for anyone other than oligarchs, investment bankers and CEOs. There can be no doubt there is a London bubble which has withstood the credit crunch and the market continues to thrive, however there are also a wide range of regeneration areas across the city. Local councils are working with developers in many of these boroughs to attract people to live and are offering different housing options and making affordable homes a priority.
In London's Borough of Haringey, beside the Victorian-era Finsbury Park, a new project is underway to regenerate the area and provide a range of state-of-the-art new homes. On the banks of the New River and West Reservoir, Berkeley Homes is transforming an estate and replacing it with 4,600 homes on a 65-acre area.
Cambridge is currently one of the busiest centres for property development in the east of England, with a host of regeneration projects in the city itself and numerous large developments in the surrounding area in places such as Cambourne and Trumpington. Berkeley Homes is adding its contribution in the form of its Cambridge Riverside development of apartments and penthouses.
The first phase of off-plan sales at Carmel Gate in Temple Fortune, NW11, which is being developed by Berkeley Homes, will take place next week ahead of the opening of the show home in January and the official launch of the scheme in spring 2013.
