For families eager to set down roots in the London Borough of Barnet, the final release of refurbished former MoD homes in Whetstone by developer Annington, are set to prove popular. A fresh, two-bedroom home, along with three amazing value four-bedroom properties are being released for sale on Friday 7th June 2019.
Barrie Christophi, Assistant Branch Manager of estate agency Barnard Marcus in Whetstone, which will be handling the sale, explains: “The key selling points are firstly the location – it’s peaceful and quiet, yet minutes away from Totteridge and Whetstone Underground station. It’s also not far from Oakleigh Park Overground which gets you into Kings Cross in less than 20 minutes.
“The houses have good layouts and spacious room sizes. Each of the properties feature an open-plan kitchen diner and a separate living area, plus a rear garden. All of the properties come with generous parking allocation. In a price-sensitive market these homes offer great value, and as we already have applicants who are looking for a home in the development and have their finances checked and ready to go, we expect viewings to be busy.”
Residents who have already moved to the development in Whetstone have nothing but praise for the fully refurbished houses, which include new kitchens with integrated appliances, new bathrooms, new front doors and new flooring throughout.
First time buyers James and Elodie Casareto were delighted to move from rented accommodation in Romford. James, a manager for Eurostar, commented: “We really liked the homes at because of the quiet surrounding area, the new appliances and kitchen, the size of the garden and the other refurbishments. The development as a whole is very bright and spacious looking.” Elodie, who works in a recruitment agency, added: “We love all of the activities in the surrounding area; there are tennis and golf clubs, leisure centres and swimming pools all within easy reach of our home.”
Joseph and Jane Dawson, who were living in a one-bedroom flat in Woodside Park, decided to move to a larger home as their son Joe became a toddler. “We really liked the local area of Whetstone,” said Jane. “It’s close to everything we need and there is an excellent range of schools nearby which will be great when Joe grows up.” Joseph added: “Throughout the process Annington was very helpful.”
Antonio and Jasminka Calabrese also felt the development was the ideal place to raise a family. Antonio, Restaurant Manager at a gastro pub, said: “When we visited we found the development to be very peaceful and it felt safe for children. A big draw for us was the standard to which the homes had been refurbished; we have a lot more space than we did previously and brand new appliances. We really like the neighbourhood and feel very settled.”
Louise Saunders, Sales & Marketing Manager at Annington, commented: “We pride ourselves on offering spacious, competitively priced homes, and we are confident that there will be a lot of interest in the last remaining homes on this development which have been thoroughly refurbished and redecorated to a high standard.”
The two-bedroom home at Whetstone will be offered for sale at £450,000 and the four-bedroom properties will start from £550,000. To book a viewing contact Barnard Marcus on 020 8446 6888.
