9 March 2023
Save up to £15,000 on homes at Gun Hill Park for a limited time only*
Gun Hill Park is located within The Wellesley Estate in Aldershot, a vibrant neighbourhood in the heart of Hampshire, surrounded by rolling woodland and open green space.
With unique charm and character, the small historic town of Aldershot offers the best of both worlds – countryside living and rural beauty, balanced with modern conveniences and direct connections to the capital, from Aldershot train station which is just a 15-minute walk away.
You could move into your dream home within the restored Cambridge Military Hospital this summer. For a limited time only you can save up to £15,000*.
Weston Homes is transforming the Grade-II listed hospital to create a luxurious collection of new and converted apartments and houses. Additionally, The Louise Margaret Collection has just launched and the first release includes one and two-bedroom new-build apartments.
Martin and Debbie Vowles moved into their exceptional two bedroom house at Gun Hill Park last summer after two decades living in a 250-year-old cottage in Dorset and haven’t looked back.
Debbie said: “We really enjoy the views and beautiful sunsets from our balcony. We are also enjoying being part of the community. It is a mixed community with people of different ages and backgrounds but everyone is really friendly. When friends come to visit, they are amazed that we know the majority of people who live around us."
The couple made the move to be closer to their daughters in London. Martin said: “Having enjoyed living in nearby Farnham many years ago, we thought the Hampshire/Surrey border would be a great area to return to and looked at several options but nothing compared to Gun Hill Park.”
Debbie added: “We were impressed by the quality of the development, the proximity to transport links and the reduced maintenance required in a newly refurbished home, which was attractive to us after living in a 250 year old cottage for the last 20 years.
“It was also a familiar place as one of our daughters was actually born here when it was the Cambridge Military Hospital.”
The contemporary living areas and designer kitchens are flooded with natural light, and the luxurious bathrooms include Smart technology. Every room is finished to Weston Homes’ exceptional standard. This includes:
Stylish kitchens with fully integrated appliances, quartz stone worktops, an integrated chopping board and a Smart tap providing filtered and boiling water instantly.
Smart showers and baths, a de-misting mirror and vanity cupboard in the bathrooms.
Quality flooring is fitted throughout: RAK ceramic wall and floor tiles in the bathroom, carpets to bedrooms and strip flooring in all other rooms.
Mirrored fitted wardrobes are included in every principal bedroom.
Hyperfast broadband is included in every home (subject to contract).
Many properties have high ceilings.
Martin said: “We were impressed with the quality of the fittings in the bathrooms and kitchen, and love that the double-glazed windows are in keeping with the building.”
“Every home somehow seems unique, many come with outside space, some with separate kitchens and some even with the original iron staircases, making use of the wonderful architecture and history of the building."
“There is a great range of homes available at Gun Hill Park, so there is something to suit everyone from first-time buyers, and people who are looking for extra space, to those, like ourselves, who are down-sizing.
Buyers also have the ability to transform a blank canvas and express their personality through the colour choices available at no extra cost (subject to stage of construction). Buying a new home means you don’t have to inherit someone else’s decorating disasters.
Martin added: “We bought our house off-plan, so that meant we could choose the flooring and other features well in advance and it was included in the price. There’s a very tempting range of choices in the marketing suite.”
Location is key
Debbie said: “We like living in Aldershot as we have easy access to rail and road links, airports and for us the proximity to London is important.”
In fact, Aldershot train station is just a 15-minute walk away, with direct trains into London and other major towns nearby.
Debbie added: “There is great countryside nearby with good walks and some lovely towns and villages for shopping, eating out and generally relaxing. We also are keen on tennis and swimming and Aldershot has an excellent sports centre and a tennis facility."
Landscaping around Gun Hill Park has also been thoughtfully designed, with open lawns, trees and a heritage trail. Plus, a stone’s throw away residents can discover Wellesley Woodlands, with more than 100 hectares of woodlands, canal-side walks, wildlife areas and lakes.
The bustling high street is a 10-minute walk away, where you will find independent shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. There is a seven-screen cinema, leisure centre, and two theatres.
The couple said: “To anyone looking to buy a home, you must contact the sales team at Gun Hill Park and come and have a look around”.
Martin continued “There is a beautiful show home so you can see what to expect in terms of interior quality and they will spend a lot of time understanding exactly what you are looking for to find something suitable. There is definitely no hard selling - just friendly and helpful advice.”
Exquisite homes at Gun Hill Park start from £285,000. To find out more, and to book your exclusive viewing, please contact Weston Homes on 01252 751 285 or visit the website.
