First Time Buyer finds perfect home at Jupiter Heights
Chris Haigh, a geologist, has bought his first home at Jupiter Heights, Annington’s vibrant collection of refurbished apartments located just off Vine Lane in Uxbridge.
Chris, who was previously renting with a group of friends in central London, had been planning to get on the property ladder for some time. He comments: “I’d been saving for a deposit for a long time and was beginning to get fed up with having to move every year or two because of landlords selling up or increasing rents too much. It felt like the right time to start putting down some roots.”
As a first time buyer, Chris wanted to find a property in a desirable part of London but still within budget. Like so many others, he was also keen to reduce the time it took to commute to work. Latest government figures reveal Londoners spend a whopping 402 hours per person, per year, travelling to work, with each journey lasting an average of 42 minutes, the longest in the country.
As a result, the location of Jupiter Heights was a major factor in his decision to buy a home. Chris says: “I work in Uxbridge so know the area well. Living in Jupiter Heights has cut my commute from an hour on public transport to a 20 minute walk. The property is in a great location and the price was just within budget.”
Jupiter Heights is a collection of former Ministry of Defence homes that have been transformed by Annington into a range of two bedroom apartments which have been attractively refurbished with new kitchens, bathrooms, windows and patio doors. The development is located in a popular area of North Uxbridge, close to the town’s amenities, but with plenty of green spaces nearby.
Chris really liked that the development was located in a peaceful residential area, yet only a short walk from the town centre. He comments: “It’s great that Jupiter Heights has a quiet location plus good transport links. Everything you need is within a short walk and Hillingdon has plenty of parks and green space.”
As a first time buyer Chris was delighted with the service he received from Annington and he is now looking forward to settling into his new home. He says: “Although there was a lot of interest in the properties Annington took into consideration the situations of individuals. If my career stays in Uxbridge then I’m hoping to settle down for the next 3-5 years.”« Back to testimonials page
