& Country is proud to report excellent sales success at its development,
The Galleries, in Brentwood. Here sales numbers are already 16% higher than the
group’s best previous year and with 4 months of selling opportunities to go the
year end looks to be an exciting time. Sales rates averaged at seven per month
from July to September 2013, compared with just four per month in the same
period the previous year.
Moore, Managing Director at City & Country, commented: “We are absolutely
thrilled with the sales success achieved at The Galleries. The development has
always been popular for its excellent transport links, beautiful setting and
range of unique properties, and the Help to Buy scheme has further increased
house hunters’ interest. Over the last few months, more than 50 per cent of our
sales at The Galleries have been through the incentive, providing that much
needed helping hand onto or up the property ladder.”
The Government-backed scheme, Help to Buy, helps
purchasers overcome the deposit gap that many struggle with raising. With
this scheme, budding home owners looking to purchase a new build property up to
the value of £600,000 would only need to secure up to 75 per cent mortgage and
five per cent deposit, as the Government lends 20 per cent of the property
price, interest-free for five years.
now occupies the former Grade II listed
Warley Hospital Buildings with a rich history dating back to 1851. The
development was launched by City & Country, the South’s leading Heritage
developer, in 2006 and has been extensively restored and converted to provide
an impressive selection of luxury apartments. Each apartment is completely
unique in design, with varying features of original honeycombed ceilings,
exposed brickwork and restored stone carvings to name but a few.
In addition to the beautiful conversion apartments, City
& Country have now completed and sold all properties in the first two of four
new buildings. Rose Court, the next building to be completed, is still in the construction
phase, however buyers are very keen to secure their new property and therefore
over 50% have already been reserved before the apartments have even been
completed. Each of the new buildings has been sensitively designed to fit
seamlessly with the aesthetics of the conversion properties.

have won Gold for Best Apartment Scheme at the acclaimed 2013 What House?
Awards. Year on year the development is recognised for its quality and
