The idea of climbing the property ladder can be quite a daunting prospect, especially when you are yet to own your first home. It can be particularly hard to obtain the funds for a deposit for 100% owned property and the financial side of things can end up being costly. However, the prospect of owning your own home can be very attractive and it tends to provide people with more security and stability. That’s why it is also good to consider the route of shared ownership, as it is more financially viable than buying through the open market and it acts as a stepping stone to owning your own property.
Since 2016 the number of homes purchased with Shared Ownership has increased from 4,084 to 17,021 and is fast becoming the favoured option over Help to Buy due to the low deposits and flexibility the scheme offers. For eager home hunters keen to find an exclusive Shared Ownership opportunity, St. Arthur Homes is soon to launch a collection of four stylish apartments at Heathbourne Village, in the idyllic Hertfordshire town of Bushey Heath, in partnership with luxury housebuilder Consero. Set within a private gated community, Heathbourne Village provides purchasers with a unique opportunity to secure an impressive new Shared Ownership home with some of England’s most attractive countryside on the doorstep, only an hour from London.
Occupying a prime position just a short walk from the popular town of Bushey Heath, Heathbourne Village comprises a stunning collection of homes that have been carefully crafted to reflect the overall architectural design of the local vernacular, yet are perfectly balanced with beautiful contemporary surroundings. St. Arthur Homes has just four one and two-bedroom apartments available to purchase with Shared Ownership. Ideal for first-time buyers who are seeking aspirational living, with an affordable price tag, each of the four properties features a luxurious interior specification that is certain to impress prospective purchasers.
Each property has been designed to provide spacious and versatile layouts, married with comfortable modern interiors. Living, kitchen, and dining areas offer a flexible space for eating, relaxing, or working. Kitchens come complete with a selection of integrated Siemens appliances including a combination oven with warming drawer and induction hob, integrated wine fridge, and compartmentalised recycling storage bins. All bedrooms are finished with carpets and bespoke-fitted wardrobes, and bathrooms are finished with a distinctive hotel-style feel and chrome detailing.
Other features include secure entrance gates with number plate recognition, secure parking with potential for electric charging points. Residents are surrounded by a network of wide leafy boulevards, lush mature trees throughout the development. Residents will also have direct access to the surrounding communal gardens via French doors to the ground-floor apartments, with a balcony/terrace to the ground-floor homes.
