House hunters snapping up properties in Frinton

27 November 2015


The first houses have been reserved on an exclusive new development in an attractive Essex seaside town.

The new show home is now open at Persimmon Homes’ Hamilton Gate development in Frinton-on-Sea, on Witton Wood Road.

The scheme is made up of 37 two, three and four bedroom homes. And four properties have already been reserved by eager house hunters.

Couple Katherine and Robby Grainge were amongst the first to secure their dream home within the historic Frinton gates.

Katherine, a 27-year-old personal trainer, said: “We wanted to buy our first house together and we wanted to buy a new-build so that we didn’t have to do too much work."

“We were keen to stay in Frinton so we had a look at Hamilton Gate and were impressed with the choice.”

Katherine and Robby opted for a three bedroom Hatfield style property, taking advantage of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme so that they only needed a five per cent deposit.

Katherine added: “We needed three beds as we have a four-year-old daughter and we hope to have another child one day."

“We love the layout and have a few ideas for decoration."

“Robby works in the gas industry in London. It takes him about an hour and a half from Frinton so it’s a great base for us. We can’t wait to move into our new home.”

Kim Oates, Head of Sales at Persimmon Homes Essex, said house hunters need to act quickly if they are interested in becoming part of the new community.

“We’ve already seen lots of interest in this new development and already reservations are being made,” said Kim.

“These properties will not be available for long so if people are interested in living in Frinton they should visit the marketing suite as soon as they can.”

Frinton has a reputation as an exclusive resort and retains an atmosphere of the 1920s and 1930s. Tree-lined avenues sweep down the elegant Esplanade and cliff-top greensward.

The sandy beach is quiet and secluded and has colourful Victorian-style beach huts. The sea front is still reminiscent of the days when the town was a favourite retreat for the aristocracy and even royalty. Visitors can enjoy a game of golf or tennis, followed by a cream tea.
