Persimmon Homes


11 November 2011

As families grow and children leave the nest, homeowners are often left living in a property that is no longer suitable for their needs. Persimmon Homes could have the perfect solution at its Sancroft Square development in the pretty town of Harleston, which has an excellent range of new properties which could fit the bill for househunters looking for a low maintenance, manageable home.

Sancroft Square is a high quality residential development located within the attractive surroundings of semi-rural Harleston. Comprising a collection of three and four bedroom homes, the development is an ideal place for those looking for a property to downsize to without compromising on space, character or location.

Jon Gibbs, sales director for Persimmon Homes Anglia, said: “When children leave home often homeowners are left with a property that is too large for their needs. By moving to a more manageable property purchasers can not only feel more comfortable in their new surroundings but, also free up some equity enabling them to do things that they may have been looking forward to in their retirement years.

“Sancroft Square is an ideal development as it not only offers high specification properties but the development is full of like-minded people, which provides a great community atmosphere.”

Homes at Sancroft Square are designed and built to complement the surrounding architecture, meaning each of the stunning designs boasts a beautiful exterior and welcoming interior.

High quality specification is found throughout the houses, kitchens include modern designer features, while white sanitary ware is fitted in the bathrooms and en-suites which are complemented with chrome fixtures and wall tiles.

Jon concludes: “By buying a brand new home with Persimmon, you are opting to spend more time relaxing into your new life as we've taken care of everything for you, so if you’d like to take advantage of both an enviable new home and the lifestyle on offer at Sancroft Square, visit our marketing suite without delay.”

Sancroft Square is ideally situated for residents to walk or drive to the town centre of Harleston. The market town has a range of local amenities and healthcare facilities as well as a range of restaurants and cafes. In addition the site is located just a few minutes from the A143.

Combining rural living in the quiet market town of Harleston, Norfolk, with the excellent links to the hustle and bustle found in both Norwich and London, Persimmon Homes Anglia’s Sancroft Square could be the answer to your prayers. The development is a short drive to Diss’ railway station, which means Norwich is little over 20 minutes and London is just 90 minutes away.
