Growing Community of Medical Professionals at Pentland Homes’ Saxon Fields

Leading Kent developer, Pentland Homes, has seen a surge in demand from medical professionals purchasing properties at its flagship development, Saxon Fields, in Canterbury, following the release of a number of incentives available to those in the medical field, including up to £2,000 towards legal and moving fees for NHS workers. Prices at this sought-after development start at £330,000, with Help to Buy available.

Following the reopening of the property market back in May, Pentland Homes has attributed 1/3 of reservations at Saxon Fields to individuals in the medical profession. A ten-minute drive or 12-minute cycle to the nearby Kent and Canterbury Hospital and close to a large pharmaceutical company’s offices, these purchasers have been attracted to the premium quality Art-Deco style homes available within a short distance of their place of work, whilst also benefitting from the high-quality lifestyle and community on offer at Saxon Fields.

In addition, these purchasers are attracted to the buying schemes available at Saxon Fields, including the Government backed Help-to-Buy, and Pentland Homes’ Part Exchange and Help-to-Sell offering.

Tina Bonakdar (32), a senior scientist at a pharmaceutical company and her partner Fabio Fulchini (31) a consultant engineer, have recently bought their first home using Help-to-Buy at Saxon Fields. Having moved into a three-bedroom typology, they comment: “As first-time buyers we were attracted to Saxon Fields because of its amazing natural setting, with the upcoming natural meadow and allotment area, we really wanted to get in early on the redevelopment to ensure we didn’t lose out. The location is also great as it is easy for us to get to work.

“Our favourite thing about our new home is how well designed it is. We love the open-plan nature of it, the attention to detail and the quality of the fitting. Everything from the bathroom tiles to the large windows, the quality of construction is amazing.”

Karrina Oki, Director of Sales and Marketing at Pentland Homes comments: “It’s no secret that medical professionals have had a very tough year in 2020 and we’re very thankful for everything that they’ve done for the country. With over 1/3 of purchasers at our development, Saxon Fields, working in the medical profession, we’re pleased to be able to provide them excellent quality homes in what has been a difficult year.

“The short journey to work, combined with the premium homes available, surrounding countryside, green spaces and access to good schools make Saxon Fields an attractive choice for these buyers looking to purchase near the historic city of Canterbury.”
