New Term, New Home at Ote Park

16/10/2014 - General

As new figures by Bloor Homes reveals that one in ten homeowners are driven to move to secure a home within the catchment of high quality schools, the award-winning housebuilder is encouraging parents in Burgess Hill to make the move to its Ote Park development now, ahead of the school application deadline in January. 

For homebuyers, the number one priority is schools – reiterated by recent research published by the Daily Telegraph. Indeed, of the 2,000 people surveyed in Bloor Homes’ survey, nearly a quarter of homeowners considered a school as ‘the heart of the community’, whilst the ability to walk to school also ranked high on parents’ wish list when looking for a new home.  

Bloor Homes is therefore keen to assist prospective purchasers in Burgess Hill to secure their dream home now to ensure they stand the best chance of getting their child into their school of choice for 2015.

Ote Park has provided incredibly popular with growing families looking to live within close proximity to excellent schools, with just one four bedroom detached ‘Hamilton’ property now remaining for sale, priced at £485,000 (£388,000 under Help to Buy). Within easy reach of the development is Birchwood Grove Community Primary, which achieved an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rating on last inspection. Also nearby are a selection of schools which were rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted including Manor Field Primary School, Sheddingdean Community Primary School and St Wilfrids Catholic Primary School. 

Martin Crick, Sales Director at Bloor Homes comments: “Needing additional space for a growing family and being within easy reach of great school goes hand-in-hand for many families.  That’s why finding a modern home in a desirable location is on the wish list for many house hunters at this time.  

“With recent changes to the mortgage application process, anecdotal evidence also indicates it is taking longer for people to secure their dream home.  So if you want to ensure you are living in the correct area ahead of January applications, now really is the time to be making the move.”

A selection of four bedroom family homes are currently available for sale at Ote Park, priced from £485,000 (£388,000 under Help to Buy). Committed to delivering the perfect place for families to call home, the new houses have all been carefully designed to fit the needs of modern living, offering open-plan living areas plus high quality fixtures and fittings, alongside generous rear gardens, garages or parking depending on the plot.

Idyllically located within the popular market town of Burgess Hill, Ote Park offers homeowners all the benefits of modern amenities, whilst being surrounded by the stunning South Downs countryside, stretching from Ditchling Beacon to the Hampshire border. The development is situated just a short walk from Wivelsfield Train Station and is just a short drive to the M23, offering easy access to London and the Southeast.
