New home sales off to a flying start at Silversmith Place, Wallingford

With 13 of the 22 elegant two-bedroom apartments at Silversmith Place sold within 6 weeks of the launch and 8 new homes being sold on the actual launch day, it is safe to say that Silversmith Place is already proving popular with buyers over the age of 55 who want to live in this pretty Oxfordshire town.

Located between St Martins Street and Goldsmiths Lane in the centre of Wallingford, Silversmith Place is a newly-constructed development comprising two buildings with apartments on the first, second and third levels. A garden has been created at first floor level and several of the apartments have terraces opening onto the garden or private balconies or Juliet balconies overlooking it. On the ground floor, beneath the garden, is a communal lobby, allocated parking spaces and two retail units. Lifts from the residents car park will provide access to each floor.

Wallingford is a picturesque village with pretty brick and flint buildings and theres always something going on from pancake races to St Georges Day parades, swan upping, rowing regattas and various festivals.

In the past, Wallingford has been named as one of the Best Places to Live In the South-East and recently it has been cited as being one of the five towns in the UK with the fastest rising house prices. According to Zoopla, Wallingford house prices have risen by 2.84% in the last three months.

We are not surprised by the reaction to Silversmith Place or to the news that Wallingford house prices are rising swiftly, comments Angela South, Sales and Marketing Director for Beechcroft. Wallingford is a delightful place to live with plenty of amenities and the development is right in the centre of town with all the local shops, cafes and restaurants on hand. The new homes are energy-efficient and easy to maintain and an Estate Manager is employed to handle the day-to-day administration of the development including the upkeep of the communal areas inside and out. The Estate Manager will also be on hand to keep an eye on properties whilst owners are away and to offer help and advice if needed, which is very useful if home owners want to lock up and leave.

Currently four of the two-bedroom homes are on sale at Wallingford with prices from 350,000 to 420,000 for a two-bedroom apartment.
