Just 27 properties are going to be constructed at The Martlets, a development of new homes in Crawley, West Sussex that has just been launched by Barratt Homes. Only 14 of them will be sold privately, meaning there are few opportunities for buyers to get their hands on the three- and four-bedroom homes there, especially as there have been a large number of initial enquiries from house hunters hoping to find a property in the area. Prices start at £359,995 for a three-bedroom house.
Lynnette St-Quintin, Sales and Marketing Director for Barratt Southern Counties, says: "We are really excited to be launching The Martlets in Crawley. Set in a sought-after location, this fantastic development is bringing much needed high-quality family homes to the area and as such we are expecting it to be really popular amongst local buyers. With only 27 properties available and interest already proving high, I would encourage potential purchasers to get in touch sooner rather than later."
The homes at The Martlets have been designed with the local vernacular in mind, with features such as bay windows, covered porches and dormer windows helping them to blend into their surroundings. Inside, however, purchasers can expect to find a thoroughly modern layout and specification, which includes elegant white bathroom and en suite sanitaryware and stylish kitchens that incorporate a range of energy-efficient appliances.
There will be a number of two- and three-storey house types available, to suit the requirements of different buyers, each covered by a ten-year NHBC warranty and an additional five-year guarantee on fixtures and fittings that is unique to Barratt Homes.
The development is only two miles from the centre of Crawley, in an area that is known for the number of quality schools and colleges, making it an ideal base for those with children in education. Only 18 miles from Brighton and close to parkland and beautiful Weald countryside, there are plenty of options for a healthy, outdoor lifestyle. It's easy to get to London too, either by road via the M23/A23 or by rail from nearby Gatwick Airport, where express services arrive in Victoria in around 30 minutes.
Initial interest in The Martlets in Crawley has been high, and with prices starting at £359,995, it is unlikely that these new homes in West Sussex from Barratt Homes are going to be on the market long
