Neil Grinnall Homes’ latest offering to Worcester’s vibrant city living scene is gathering pace with the unveiling of two new showhomes.
K2, situated in an enviably secluded setting behind the Grade II listed façade of the former Kay’s Catalogue headquarters, comprises nine luxurious townhouses and 14 two-bedroom apartments. Even before the public launch, the three-bedroom townhouse showhome – including all furniture and interiors - has been reserved by an eager purchaser, whilst the two-bedroom show apartment has a list of over 100 potential buyers waiting for its launch weekend from 10am on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May.
Located off The Tything, only 200 metres from Worcester Foregate Street train station and within easy reach of Junction 6 of the M5, the executive townhouses priced from £340,000 and the well-proportioned two bedroom apartments priced from £175,000 are appealing to savvy professionals who work in the Cathedral City, as well as those needing to commute to work by rail or car.
Neil Grinnall, Chairman of Neil Grinnall Homes comments: “K2 truly offers the best of both worlds in Worcester’s growing city living trend. Situated behind The Tything – one of the principal routes into the heart of the city, this scheme offers future residents a secure, gated setting - secluded from the bustle of the city centre - yet within easy walking distance of the shopping and commercial core.
“The unveiling of our extremely spacious three-bedroom townhouse showhome and a contemporary two-bedroom show apartment on 7th and 8th of May will depict the quality of the interiors that we are creating here. With only nine houses and 14 apartments located within two purpose designed buildings, K2 is certain to meet the aspirations of purchasers vying to capture the exclusivity that comes with living in this historic city.”
K2’s townhouses bring a totally different concept to the general perception of city living. Whilst three-bedroom, three-storey properties are not uncommon on the edge of city centres, generally equating to 1,000 sq ft, K2’s nine townhouses each offer over 1,400 sq ft. Being up to 50 per cent larger than comparable properties in the suburbs, it is even more unusual that Neil Grinnall Homes is offering this level of space right in the heart of Worcester city centre.
Apart from the spacious dimensions, the biggest attraction of living within a K2 townhouse is the purpose-built conservatory leading to a landscaped patio area, perfect for alfresco summer dining. In addition, the integral garage provides more versatile and secure space. And, because the nine townhouses are being sold as freehold properties, they only incur minimal service charge obligations and management restrictions, therefore owning a domestic pet in a city location such as this is unlikely to prove a problem.
Neil Grinnall adds: “Whilst the townhouses at K2 offer unrivalled space within a primly located freehold property, the 14 two-bedroom apartments here prove that designer city living can be had for as little as £175,000. And, to coincide with our launch weekend, we are offering purchasers who reserve an apartment off-plan a five per cent deposit paid incentive to enable younger buyers to climb up or onto the property ladder more easily.
“In addition to paying the five per cent deposit, we are offering purchasers of the eight remaining townhouses the added incentive of reimbursing stamp duty and legal costs, as well as providing complementary fitted carpets. These lucrative incentives are designed to ease the financial burden of moving house for busy professional couples who want to trade up to a low maintenance property.”
The specification being used at K2 includes quality brands such as Porcelanosa, AEG, Shires Adagio and Matki. Currently under construction, the scheme is scheduled for completion in Summer 2005, however, purchasers who reserve swiftly can still benefit from the full selection of fixtures and fittings as well as choosing optional extras.
Prices for the three-bedroom townhouses start from £340,000 for a 1,412 sq ft design to £350,000 for a slightly larger property totalling 1,480 sq ft. The 12, two-bedroom apartments range from 639 to 687 sq ft and are priced from £175,000 to £185,000, whilst the two, two-bedroom penthouses offer 1,019 and 1048 sq ft, both priced at £300,000. All properties are sold with allocated parking spaces.
