Weston Homes' stylish development forms part of an exciting new community to the west of London

As the saying goes ‘there’s many a good tune played on an old fiddle’ and this is certainly the case for the former home of EMI’s global manufacturing headquarters in Hayes, west of the capital.

Residential developer Weston Homes is part of a larger plan to regenerate the site and create a community that provides a mix of new homes, shops, cafés, restaurants and office space.

Named The Old Vinyl Factory, the 17-acre development will house The Venue, Weston Homes’ trio of apartment buildings that will feature a range of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom properties with a range of buying options.

We spoke to sales consultant Joseph Young to get a feel for what buyers can expect from the residential haven that’s less than 20 minutes from London Paddington by train.

Give us a brief overview of the development, who is it aimed at? Who's been buying?

Formerly owned by EMI and now by developer U+l, The Old Vinyl Factory has a strong musical heritage, it is the birthplace of stereo sound and home to a record pressing plant for some of the biggest acts of the 20th century.

The Venue itself sits at the heart of the plan and is perfect for first-time buyers, young professionals and investors alike.

We have seen a mix of buyers from across London and beyond, many of whom are just stepping onto the housing ladder for the first time.

The development is situated in Hayes, in the borough of Hillingdon, tell us what's nearby?

The Venue will be surrounded by lots of retail space, a live events space and a three-screen cinema are planned for the near future.

Hayes is home to a wide range of entertainment facilities including The Beck Theatre that puts on a variety of live music concerts, tribute acts and stand-up comedy shows.

For the more active there's Sandgate Football Club, Hayes Hawks BMX Course and Lake Farm Country Skateboarding Park, all within walking distance. And then there's The Nest Climbing Centre that offers the chance to try your hand at bouldering.

Currently, there is a Co-op within the regeneration area and a selection of large supermarkets all within walking distance of the complex.

For those who want to venture into central London, The Venue is only six minutes from the newly improved Hayes and Harlington Station which will form part of the new Elizabeth Line. The step-free station will allow residents to reach Paddington in around 17-minutes once complete.

Tell us about the apartments, the number of bedrooms and any external features residents can enjoy

We have a selection of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments ranging in prices from £349,995 to £535,000, across all aspects and set over seven floors. The homes feature contemporary, open-plan living areas, superb bespoke designer kitchens and luxurious bathrooms, all finished to Weston Homes’ usual high standards.

The Venue has not one but three private roof terraces sitting atop each building. The building themselves surround a central residents' only podium garden and all apartments benefit from their own private balcony.

What particular features have been creating excitement with buyers?

The people that have been in to view our beautiful show apartment have been wowed by the all-inclusive specification that Weston Homes offers. From the flooring fitted throughout the home, the integrated kitchen appliances to the high-tech features that include Smart taps, showers and an anti-mist mirror in the bathrooms.

The homes are designed to offer ease of maintenance and running efficiency, providing a fully comprehensive specification to enable you to start enjoying your new lifestyle from the moment you move in. Buyers have said they love the fact that their apartment will be “ready to live in” after completion.

What help is there for potential buyers?

Weston Homes is pleased to offer its unique First-time SecureBuy scheme which gives first-time buyers security and peace of mind, with a full refund of the reservation fee and exchange deposit should a buyer’s circumstances change prior to legal completion, subject to terms and conditions.

The First-time SecureBuy scheme allows first-time buyers to reserve a home off-plan for just a £500 reservation fee, and only requires a 5% exchange deposit and then, six months before build completion, the buyer can apply for a mortgage. Should the value of the property increase in the time between reservation and build completion, buyers will only pay the price agreed on the day they reserved their property.

Help to Buy is also available on selected plots (subject to terms and conditions), covered by the London version of the scheme which allows first-time buyers to apply for a government-backed equity loan of up to 40 per cent.

We are also working in partnership with Hillingdon Council to offer a range of Discount Market Sale (DMS) homes for people who either live or work in Hayes. Please get in touch with our sales team to find out more."

Are there any further incentives available on selected new homes to make moving in as easy and stress-free as possible?

Buyers of late have been really excited by our 'Move in for free' incentive. We are currently able to offer parking, a year-long gym membership, a stamp duty contribution, legal fee contribution and a furniture pack contribution on selected apartments.*

We know how hard it can be to find the money for other move-related costs especially when you have put everything into a deposit.

So it's great for customers to be able to move in and have everything covered."

What would you say to someone thinking of coming down to have a look?

Please do - all customers who have seen The Venue agree that it is the best placed and most convenient development in Hayes. Weston Homes offers an unmatched level of choice. The highest specification and largest range of materials, colours and options are all included within the price.

Come and see for yourself. We are open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm and continue to follow the latest government safety guidelines.

Prices start from £349,995 with London Help to Buy (up to 40 per cent equity loan - t&cs apply) available on selected homes.
