Work commenced on this exciting new development of just six one bed homes in November 2010 and all properties were sold and completed by the new year of 2012. The buzz on the street – an estate agent editorial on The Beehive, from August 2011.
Freehold has long been the most sought after property type to buy with no need for large annual maintenance or ground rent charges.
However, with the onset of the high density apartment era of the last decade, leasehold properties fast became the norm with 99 - 125 year periods and leasehold fees often exceeding £1,000 per year for even small apartments.
It’s an unavoidable cost that can easily eat into any monthly budget and it affects both first time buyers and investors the same.
However, market forces drive house builders to become innovative and respond to buyers changing desires. The buzz on the streets of Christchurch surrounds a new development by established local developer Caleb Development.
Caleb have named it The Beehive as it is creating its own enclave of modern living for residents to escape the hive of activity that fills their lives.
Comprising just six energy efficient freehold homes, of which four are contemporary styled one bedroom houses, there is no need for potential new owners to worry about high monthly outgoings.
Designed to the latest standards these exclusive homes offer accommodation arranged over two floors which conveniently separates the kitchen / dining / living area on the ground floor from the double bedroom and en suite bathroom upstairs.
Fitted with high specification kitchens with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and wine chiller they provide a high standard of affordable accommodation.
Equally impressive is the fact that each house has a modern three piece bathroom suite with generous shower/bath and luxurious Porcelona tiles to the floor and walls.
The properties benefit from allocated off road parking, but are also conveniently located just a short distance from Christchurch town centre.
Easy access to bus routes for Bournemouth and Castle Point as well as the main line to London Waterloo make this an ideal location for busy bees’ work, rest and play.
