Why buying new is the best decision you can make

More and more people are opting to buy new build homes – and with good reason too!

Buyers of new builds experience none of the hassle that often occurs when buying second-hand properties in complex chains. Beyond the prospect of buying a chain-free property, there are plenty of reasons why you might choose a new build. 


  1.  Blank Canvas


With a new build home, once you’ve completed the sale, you can simply unpack and go. 

Not only is there no on-going chain holding you up with new builds, but they’re also a blank canvas – a space for you to make entirely your own. You can feel free to decorate in your style without working around many years of other people’s choices. 

A new home requires much less maintenance than an older home, giving you more time to do the things you love.

But don’t be mistaken – a blank canvas doesn’t mean no character. 

Here at Woodgate, all of our homes – from our 1 bed apartments to our brand new villas – are packed with character, high-quality materials, and are influenced by contemporary and traditional designs.


2. Modern living with high specification


It’s not just the bones of the house that are new – but the appliances, too. 

You’ll get the latest, top-spec tech in your home, which not only means more energy efficiency, but more convenient, too. No more waiting around for the immersion heater for a hot shower. 

Well-designed new builds are homes that work for you, rather than the other way round!

They’re also often built to suit a modern lifestyle, with open plan, multi-functional spaces. If you work from home – as so many of us now do – Woodgate’s Home Hubs offer a unique approach to the home office. 

Available as an additional garden building, our work-from-home hubs are self-contained, fully-insulated, and available in two sizes to suit your needs.


3. Reduced Energy Bills


At Woodgate, every home benefits from superior insulation, ventilation, heating systems and low energy lighting:


What your energy savings could look like in your new home at Woodgate*


Buying a new home at Woodgate could help to ease the impact of rising energy prices. Each Woodgate home is 4 times more energy efficient than a 1970s house & 7 times more energy efficient than a Victorian home. Find out more about the sustainable homes at Woodgate here.

4. Peace of mind  


What you really need when moving home is peace of mind. 


  • 10-year NHBC  Buildmark Warranty

While all of the above gives you reassurance, what provides the ultimate peace of mind is the fact that our new build homes are covered by a 10-year NHBC Buildmark Warranty.

This protects you in the unlikely event of a structural defect – an assurance that simply isn’t available with older houses.


  • Two years dedicated Customer Care

At Woodgate our Customer Care team are on hand to assist, should you need them in the first two years of occupation.


4. Help to Buy 


Help to Buy aims to help first-time buyers to get on the property ladder. The Government-backed Help to Buy scheme has helped thousands of would-be home buyers move with just a 5% deposit. Help To Buy: Equity Loan launched this year is a loan from the government that you put towards the cost of buying a newly built home.

At Woodgate there are a number of homes available with the Help to Buy scheme. Find out more about how Help to Buy could get you on the property ladder sooner than you thought, here.


Our new build homes


Here at Woodgate, we take pride in giving Pease Pottage residents more than a house – but a convenient, welcoming, and sustainable place to call home.

Our new build homes are bursting with character and fitted out with only the best white goods and technology. Each of them comes with the 10-year NHBC Buildmark Warranty expected of quality homebuilders.


Meet the Villas


We’re not the kind to choose ‘typical’ when it comes to our developments. 

Our latest builds – the Villas on the Green – are packed with Edwardian and Nordic charm. Elevated terraces, unique upside-down living, and views of the Village Green make these homes ideal for entertaining and family life alike.
