Full steam ahead for Hampshire Househunters with £123,000 savings on new homes in Sutton Scotney compared with Winchester
Regularly tipped as one of the best places to live in the UK, it’s no wonder house prices in Winchester reflect the demand for homes here, averaging £548,337 according to latest figures from Zooplas’ Zed-Index.
Yet just to the north of Winchester in the picturesque village of Sutton Scotney, is a collection of three, four and five bedrooms homes available now, with current starting prices over £123,000 less than those in Winchester.
Being delivered by award-winning Metis Homes - the WhatHouse? Best Small Housebuilder 2017 - the homes at Old Station Park are ideal for househunters looking to put down roots in a desirable location, without the city price tag. The three-bedroom Hanbury for example, starts at £425,000. What's more, this considerable saving is not at the expense of connectivity – Old Station Park is just 7.5 miles from Winchester train station, with links into London Waterloo in just 61 minutes.
Occupying what was once the Sutton Scotney station yard, the homes have been intricately designed by Metis Homes' expert team to pay homage to the heritage of the site, whilst still embracing the modern specifications todays discerning buyer expects. Wooden facades give an air of sleek modernity from the outside, setting the tone for the high quality interior design inside.
Adam O’Brien, Managing Director of Metis Homes, commented: “Old Station Park has been very popular and it’s not hard to see why when you look at the numbers, in terms of the savings to be had here versus property in Winchester. For families looking for a home in a well-connected location, Sutton Scotney is perfect – and the potential savings of £123,000 in comparison to central Winchester makes the decision to move to Old Station Park a logical choice!
