Like many of the students that flock to Loughborough to study, the housing market in this popular university town has always been in fit and healthy shape! Located off Wharncliffe Road and having launched earlier this year, Great Central Square is already carving an outstanding reputation for itself as a desirable place to set up home or invest, as buyers have recently snapped up all of the first phase of front-facing townhouses. And as a stylish, gated enclave of homes, it’s not hard to see why. Great Central Square offers buyers a fine choice of contemporary properties, with secure parking; a development which showcases what Jelson Homes has been doing throughout its 125-year history: building quality, well-priced homes in line with what it believes to be desirable for today’s purchasers. Jackie Woodward, sales manager for Jelson Homes, comments: “We are thrilled to have sold so many properties so quickly at Great Central Square and I believe this is indicative of the quality of homes that we are offering here, the enviable location and our sensitive pricing.” Contemporary Property choices available include the one and two-bedroom Gatehouse Apartments as well as the Quorn three-bedroom townhouses and Rothley two-bedroom townhouses, with all offering an abundance of natural light thanks to their modern PVCu windows. With the choice of either one or two-bedroom variants, the Gatehouse Apartments offer fantastic value for money. Starting at just £119,950, these homes combine the very best of traditional brick construction – featuring solid internal walls for greater heat and sound insulation – with a highly contemporary finish. Inside, the open-plan kitchen/living room embodies modern living at its very best, and with hand-made kitchen units from Jelson’s very own workshop, buyers will reap the benefits of high-quality craftsmanship. The bedrooms are spacious, whilst the two bedroom apartments benefit from an en-suite bathroom. The Quorn and Rothley home types are two-storey properties comprising a lounge/dining room with french doors leading out to the rear garden, a separate modern kitchen and downstairs WC, plus two spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs. Historic Jackie Woodward, sales manager for Jelson Homes, comments: “Built alongside the historic Great Central Railway, Great Central Square is a thoughtfully planned collection of townhouses and apartments, with all the privacy benefits of being set behind a secure, gated entrance. “We’re excited, and confident that Great Central Square will be a valuable addition to the area, rejuvenating the surroundings and providing the backdrop for a new community to grow.” The location of Great Central Square is as unique as the development itself, being situated next to the famous Great Central Railway; the backdrop for many period dramas and a year-round tourist attraction. Help to Buy All homes at Great Central Square are available to purchase with Help to Buy, the Government-backed scheme open to all house-hunters – whether first or next-time buyers – and works with just a five-per-cent deposit, which is funded by the purchaser. The government then provides a 20-per-cent equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years. If the dream of living in a brand-new and exclusive home in a central Loughborough location appeals, why not chat to Jelson’s sales advisers who are situated within the ground floor of one of the exclusive apartments where the sales office is located. There is also a beautiful view apartment set up in another property for visitors to see inside.
