Situated on the outskirts of the city in Borehamwood - sometimes nicknamed the ‘British Hollywood' because it is home to Elstree Studios - these new homes have a number of shops and schools the local area. They also offer superb transport links for commuters, with the A1, M25 and A41 all close by, and Elstree and Borehamwood Station less than a mile away. Priced from £199,950 to £385,000, some properties at Oaktrees are available through the government-backed NewBuy scheme, which offers 95% mortgages, while others can be purchased on a Part Exchange basis.
In Watford, less than 20 miles north of London, Leggatts Green is another development that is ideally located for leisure and business, and will appeal to a wide range of buyers - offering one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and three- and four-bedroom houses. It is situated just a couple of miles from Watford town centre and all of its shops and entertainment, and also boasts fantastic road and rail links - being near the M25 and M1, and only two miles from Watford Junction station, which offers trains into London Euston with a journey time of about 30 minutes. Both the NewBuy and Part Exchange schemes are also available at Leggatts Green, while the government's FirstBuy scheme only demands a 5% deposit and offers first-time buyers a 20% equity loan to help them with their purchase.
