This London Commuter Town is booming…

A selection high-spec apartments in the town centre.

Rices Hill is a new build development in a excellent location in East Grinstead.  The scheme will house five one and seven two bedroom apartments. Each unit maximises the living space and is tastefully finished to a high standard, with LED lighting and Smart Cabling throughout.

Bastien Jack are familiar with the site having successfully completed two phases in an adjacent property.  Phase 1 & 2 consisted of 26 apartments and Townhouses and was a mixture of  Permitted Development Rights and New Build.  Phase 1 & 2 were completed in December 2015.

DEVELOPMENT STATUS: Phase 3 launching in June 2016 

The property will sit just behind the main high street in East Grinstead where there are all the usual big name brands and estate agents. It is a 3 minute walk to the very pretty secondary high street, with local speciality shops and coffee houses.

East Grinstead is a scenic town with over 800 years of history, with many green spaces, heritage buildings and leisure centres.

From the property, a 10 minute walk will take you to the train station, with regular service direct to London Victoria. Major motorways and Gatwick Airport are 15 minutes by car. This site will be very attractive to commuters.

East Grinstead - Local Area

East Grinstead, the capital of the historic High Weald. Our ancient market town has a wealth of architectural heritage and is surrounded by some of the finest countryside in the whole of the South East of England.

Help To Buy

Bastien Jack are proud to be registered with the Government Scheme Help To Buy Scheme (HTB).

What is it? – This is shared equity scheme which assists you in purchasing your new home with a lower deposit, minimum 5% of the purchase price and a 20% equity loan from the Government

Because of this support, lenders taking part are able to offer home buyers more high loan-to-value mortgages (80-95%).  You will still be fully responsible for your mortgage repayments. So if you have a 5% deposit, you will need to take out and pay back a 95% mortgage

HTB is available for all purchasers of new homes,

All our homes are available with HTB if you meet your mortgage lending criteria.  Our sales team are very familiar with the stringent process and can assist and guide you through.

East Grinstead is within an area of Special Scientific Interest and as such new applications for planning permission can take extra time to gain consent. This is putting developers off seeking permissions in the area and is having an effect on the amount of property being built or converted. Demand now outstrips supply of new housing and prices remain very strong. Small scale local development is all that is available at the moment.

With the growing trend of city workers moving out of the capital and into commuter towns in their search for better value for money,
evidence shows that prices in these towns are set to rise significantly in the next five years, resulting in some exciting opportunities for property investors.

Trains to London Victoria from East Grinstead take only 47 minutes, and with the M25 and M23 nearby, East Grinstead is well connected to popular areas such as Brighton. For jet setters, GatwickAirport is only a 15 minute drive away.

Currently, areas within an hour’s commute of London are predicted to rise by 23.3% by 2018. This includes such areas as Oxford, Cambridge and West Sussex, where you will find East Grinstead.

With demand greater than supply for homes in the area, prices in East Grinstead are strong and predicted to grow.
