Located in the heart of Barnet behind the High Street, with lively cafes, bistros and excellent shops, Novia House is a gated community with allocated parking. It is only 13 minutes’ walk from High Barnet tube station on the Northern Line, with journeys into Central London taking just 35 minutes – making it ideal for commuters. There is also an array of local green spaces to enjoy, including King William’s Fields and several local golf clubs.
Jay, 37, works as Office Manager for a bridal company and the North London location of Novia house was perfect, being in a quiet setting, with parking, plus a host of easy travelling options.
“The apartment is only 15 minutes’ drive to work, a bus ride away, if need be and with easy access into the city from the High Barnet tube station. It is also really close to the High Street,” explained Jay.
Novia House sold quickly in 2013 and then an additional four one-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment were created within the building, to similar high specifications, with innovative design and contemporary kitchens and bathrooms, including integral AEG appliances and Roca sanitary ware.
Jay bought her apartment with the assistance of the Government Help to Buy scheme. Her choice of a Kebbell Homes’ property was based on the exceptional quality of the new accommodation compared with her previous one-bedroom apartment.
“The built exterior and internal design are very good, with plenty of space in the layout of the apartment,” said Jay.
“The finished quality is superb throughout the new flat, with very tasteful colours. I love the blinds that came with it and the marble wall in the bathroom makes me feel like I am living in a hotel!
“I am really happy with the overall advice and service I received from the sales team at Kebbell Homes and would definitely choose one of their properties again.”
Using Help to Buy, available with Kebbell Homes, means first time and subsequent sole ownership buyers only need a 5% deposit, plus a 55% mortgage for the buyer. The remaining 40% of the purchase price is provided by way of Government loan.
Andrea Fawell, sales and marketing manager at Kebbell Homes, said: “This is a fabulous development and I am delighted that Jay is happy in her new home.
“Barnet is a very desirable North London location, with great amenities and transport links and this property is a real gem for anybody looking for a spacious, beautifully designed apartment with outside space in the area.”
