On the hunt for a new house? Whether you want to buy your first home, or you're looking to upgrade, St Bernard's Gate might just be your Christmas miracle.
Reserve an apartment at Catalyst Homes' stunning new Ealing development by 17 November and not only will you be able to move in time for the festive season, you'll also receive the ultimate incentive package. We're talking stamp duty contribution, a free travel card, car club membership, and even contribution towards your mortgage repayments. But before we get into all of those perks, let's have a nose around what could be your new neighbourhood...
Nestled in between Southall and Hanwell, St Bernard's Gate is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life while boasting excellent transport links to central London. Once the Elizabeth line launches, you can get to Liverpool Street in just 24 minutes — if you can bear to tear yourself away from the green space that surrounds you, that is.
With the idyllic, 400-hectare Brent River Park right on your doorstep, you can wander through rolling meadows to your heart's content. The park even boasts its own zoo — where you can meet meerkats, goats, and Patagonian mara. And if all that exploring makes you hungry, don't forget to pick up some fresh produce from Ealing farmers market (or give your oven the night off and plump for authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pies from your new local pizzeria instead).
However brilliant your local neighbourhood is, what's really important is that you feel completely at home when you're, well, at home. Luckily, St Bernard's Gate delivers on this front too.
The development is located in a site of historical interest, its contemporary architecture sits in the midst of stunning nearby 18th century Gothic buildings. Inside, St Bernard's Gate's selection of one and two bedroom apartments boast quality fixtures and fittings, including integrated Bosch appliances. Expect high ceilings, generously-sized bedrooms and outdoor space in the form of your own private terrace or balcony.
What's more, all the apartments are wired for intelligent homes, with Luton lighting throughout. A video entry phone system provides extra security, and onsite parking is available.
If you like what you've read so far, you're going to love Catalyst's incentive package. As well as a 5% deposit allowance, stamp duty contribution, and £1000 towards legal and financial services; buyers get £500 per month towards their mortgage repayments and their service charge covered for an entire year.
Other perks include a year's Enterprise Car Club membership with £50 credit to get you started and — this is where Catalyst really brings out the big guns — a two year travel card. Covering Zones 1-6, it's worth up to £5000.
