Elegant French doors open out into the rear garden – great for bringing people together on sunny days.

The Elder also features two driveway parking spaces to the front, giving you extra convenience whether bringing in the shopping or welcoming visitors.

About shared ownership

Shared ownership is a government-backed scheme that makes it easier for you to buy an affordable stake in a property.

The share you buy is dependent on your financial and personal circumstances. It can be from a minimum of 25% to a maximum of 75% share of the full market value of the property. You may be able to buy further shares at a later stage and in most instances you will be able to buy up to 100% of the shares in your home and own it outright. However, in some cases there may be restrictions on when you can buy a further share or on the maximum total share you can own.

Further information can be found in our shared ownership Buyer’s Guide

  • Have a household income of under £80,000
  • Don’t currently own your home and can’t afford to on the open market
  • Can afford the minimum deposit

*This is based on a 25% share (£55,000) of a 3 bedroom house valued from £220,000 with a 5% mortgage deposit (£2,750). The estimated monthly service charge is approximately £32.  The share you buy is dependent on your financial and personal circumstances.
