The Orchard Brook development is located in the heart of Long Melford and really is unique! The properties are ideally placed, only a stone’s throw from the village amenities in one direction and countryside walks in the other. The initial houses and bungalows were released in 2017 and proved highly successful with one new resident describing it as ‘a community within a community’. Steven Ray, the Managing Director of the Long Melford office has been involved in the sales process from the very early stages and explains more.
The very first time we met with Nicholas King Homes to discuss their plans for this site, we knew it would be like nothing else in the area. The entire development has been cleverly designed to continue the attractive main street scene with a pretty mix of brick and rendered homes offering ample parking and garaging. From the moment we first launched the properties, they were in very high demand with most units over subscribed as a result of interest from a mix of buyers from different backgrounds. The long awaited final phase of this development is being launched on Wednesday 20th June at The Bull Hotel in Long Melford between the hours of 11am-4pm. The launch event will provide more information about the properties and reservations will be taken from purchasers keen to proceed.
The final homes launched on this site are subject to an ‘over 55’s’ occupancy condition and includes 15 one and two bedroom apartments (prices from £199,995) and a pair of semi-detached cottage style homes. The apartments vary in size over two floors with the added benefit of a lift, charming walled garden and off-road parking. The apartments are aimed at those that would like the convenience of village centre living and the practicality of a low maintenance home. The idea is that owners can reside close to likeminded folk whist retaining their independence. One of the concerns that buyers often have when buying an apartment is over the continued maintenance and more importantly, how the service charge is calculated. The best part about Orchard Brook is that every resident becomes a shareholder within the management company and therefore, service charges and spending is determined by the residents themselves. The two bedroom cottage style semi-detached homes each have their own West facing garden and off road parking. The properties will be built to a high standard with many individual features, a 10 year structural warranty and for those that commit at an early stage, there will be the opportunity to influence the finish of the kitchen, bathroom, tiling etc. No appointment is necessary for the formal launch/open day and any further enquiries should be directed to the David Burr Long Melford office on 01787 883144.
