Weston Homes is offering an incredible opportunity to live in a unique location
Combining historic grandeur, contemporary living space and modern technology, the conversion of a former military hospital and garrison has created something rather special.
Gun Hill Park offers generous two, three and four-bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced houses and stylish one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
You could be starting a new chapter in early 2022 as a selection of Weston Homes’ new apartments will be ready to move into in the new year.
Weston Homes’ are known for their restoration projects and they have meticulously converted the Grade II listed landmark Cambridge Military Hospital and Gun Hill House.
We spoke to sales consultant Annette Williams, who said the development has something special to offer everyone, from first-time buyers, families and second home buyers to people wishing to downsize.
What about the apartments themselves?
Currently, there are one, two and three-bedroom apartments available in the Grade II listed main hospital building, the Water Tower and in Gun Hill House. All apartments feature beautiful sash windows, high ceilings, original panelling and ornate fireplaces.
Annette said: “Buyers often comment on the uniqueness and individuality of each property, especially with the features being restored such as the sash windows, high ceilings and expansive rooms. They love the history of the development and having an opportunity to be part of it by purchasing a home full of character.”
Weston Homes offer a beautiful finish for your home with a wide range of integrated Zanussi appliances, quartz stone worktops, high-quality flooring and carpets, mirrored wardrobes for the principal bedroom and smart technology in the bathrooms and en suites.
Every apartment offers Weston Homes’ all-inclusive high standard specification ready for you to just move in.
Within the grounds of the development, residents can enjoy the shared landscaped gardens with courtyards, open lawns and trees, creating spaces to relax and unwind. Selected apartments have their own private gardens. Parking is also available.
Annette continued: “Gun Hill Park has landscaped communal areas in keeping with its historical heritage; our residents also become members of the Wellesley Residents Trust, who maintain the woodlands, community parks and gardens, ensure estate areas are maintained to a high standard and manage community facilities.”
What makes the location great?
Gun Hill Park is within walking distance of Aldershot town centre, home to a selection of supermarkets, independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, and for those who enjoy a night of entertainment, the town has a cinema and two theatres.
“The train station is under a mile away giving access to London and the Southwest, with only a five-minute journey to the quaint market town of Farnham also offering an array of cosmopolitan restaurants,” she said.
“For those who enjoy an active life, Aldershot offers an array of choices with their tennis club, ski slope, lido, leisure centre and not forgetting the beautiful surrounding scenic countryside, with woodland paths, parks and nature reserves, perfect for a Sunday morning stroll or cycle.”
What financial help is there?
There are a range of options, including First-time SecureBuy and Help to Buy.
The Government-backed Help to Buy scheme is available to eligible first-time buyers who can borrow up to 20 per cent of the property's value through an equity loan.
We also offer the unique Weston Homes First-time SecureBuy scheme for those purchasing ‘off plan’ and in advance. This worry-free scheme gives security and peace of mind with a full refund of the reservation fee and exchange deposit should the purchaser's circumstances change. Using these schemes, buyers can reserve their plot for a £500 reservation fee and exchange with just a 5% deposit,” said Annette.
There are also tailored incentives to suit the individual needs of buyers, including schemes for NHS workers and military personnel, contributions towards stamp duty or the offer of technology or furniture packs to set up a new home and an 'Assisted Move Scheme' for those needing help to sell their own property.
