Quality homes near Southampton

27 August 2011

Superb new homes with stunning lakeside views are now on offer near Southampton - courtesy of national house builder Bovis Homes.

With first floor balconies overlooking the scenic Lakeside Country Park at Eastleigh these three bedroom homes are ideal for those who seek a semi-rural location. With open views of the countryside residents will be able to enjoy the Park's natural surroundings and wildlife.

And those seeking apartment living are not forgotten with two bedroom 'Parkview' apartments also on sale, some with balconies giving countryside views.

Sales advisors at Connexions, Lakeside, off Wide Lane, are urging those who want a home in a semi-rural setting, to get in quick.

Senior Sales Manager Lisa Ley, said: "There are only a limited number of homes and apartments available that benefit from these great views. The Wheatley offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy lakeside views from the privacy of your own balcony. Our designers have specifically adapted the layout of these homes so buyers can enjoy the full benefit of this lovely location, these homes really are a one-off chance to live right beside a country park."

The Parkview apartments are also within a few minutes stroll of the Country Park that includes 60 acres of lakes, wet meadow, woodland and wildlife.

Lisa said: "These apartments are in a premier location with views of the Country Park and the huge benefit is having these lovely facilities just a few minutes away. It is not often you can enjoy a brand new home in such a scenic setting with woodland and lakeside walks on your doorstep. It really offers buyers the best of both worlds."

As well as a lovely countryside setting, Connexions is well-placed for the M27 and M3 motorways providing direct access to London and the West Country. Eastleigh and Southampton's Airport Parkway train stations are also both close by, giving rail commuters a direct link to London Waterloo and other major towns and cities.

Lakeside Country Park includes acres of public paths and trails, plus picnic sites, fishing and group water sports at the restored gravel works, run by Eastleigh Borough Council.

Bovis Homes is renown for its quality of design, build and all inclusive specification, which includes a contemporary fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, en suites to main bedrooms and fitted wardrobes.

All homes at Connexions at Lakeside also come with a ten year warranty from the National House Building Council and a two year Bovis Homes customer support package.

Lisa said: "We would advise any buyers interested in a new home with either Park views or Lakeside views to contact us as soon as possible and we can also offer purchase assistance schemes to help you move quickly and smoothly so you don't lose your dream home!"

Plus, if you're a first time buyer or someone re-entering the property market and you need some support the new Government-backed FirstBuy scheme could be the key to unlocking your new home dreams.
