As East Grinstead’s largest office building, Galliard has now transformed two of the blocks to now offer 40 and 69 apartments respectively, whilst the other three remain as commercial space. Providing studio suites and one-bedroom apartments, some with a separate study; prices start from £175,000, stylish, affordable homes ideal for life in the post-pandemic world.
Every home is available fully furnished with New Concept Furnishings, a comprehensive package including beds and sofas, soft furnishings including rugs and made-to-measure blinds, a wide range of accessories ranging from lamps and mirrors, to kitchen utensils and cleaning products. Galliard will also pay a one year service charge contribution for buyers, another helping hand for young professionals wanting their first home.
Newacre House is on Wood Street, on the edge of the town centre and less than a five minute walk from the train station, giving buyers easy access to all amenities. Reaching five storeys high, the stylish red brick façade is punctuated by an array of glazing to provide the interiors with an abundance of natural illumination. Residents also benefit from an interior designed entrance foyer and lift lobby, as well as a secure cycle store and extensive landscaped garden to enjoy alongside Block D.

The first homes are now complete and ready to view in Block D, with the remaining accommodation in Block E to be completed in late 2022.

David Galman, Sales Director at Galliard Homes says: “Newacre House is an opportunity not to be missed. Nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while benefitting from the vast array of local amenities and superb travel connections in historic East Grinstead, residents really will be able to have it all. The apartments are finished to a superbly high standard and provide a fantastic chance for first-time buyers to get on the property ladder while living in a leafy location not too far from London.

We are proud to be bringing high quality homes, of a central London standard, to interested buyers in East Grinstead at affordable prices.”
