Final property remaining at Corby development

Friday 18 December 2015

St Mungo's Park in Corby, Northamptonshire, has just one property remaining ahead of the first new owners moving in early 2016.

Nine semi-detached and terraced properties are being developed on the site for shared ownership, comprising 2 three-bed houses and 7 two-bed houses. The homes are part of a larger development by Westleigh Homes.

Situated in the charming area of Corby the homes sit between Leicester, Peterborough and Northampton, offering superb access to the big commuter cities. The development is also just 6 miles from Kettering and the A14, with a wide selection of local shops, pubs and restaurants all within easy reach.

This phase of the development is built on the old Glasgow Ranger's supporters club, and the name pays homage to the large Scottish community in the area.

The homes are finished to a high standard, with the bathrooms complete with ceramic wall tiling and fitted showers with glass screen, as well as a ground floor WC. They also boast a turfed rear garden and are complete with allocated parking within block paved, landscaped surroundings.

The properties are provided through the government backed Shared Ownership scheme, with the help of Riverside Home Ownership.

Shared Ownership means you can buy a share in a property, and pay rent to a housing association on the part that you don't own. Because the rental portion is reduced, it's cheaper than paying a regular mortgage on the full property value and the deposit needed can be substantially lowered.

Sales and New Business Negotiator at Riverside Home Ownership, Catherine Corkish, says: "We are thrilled with the success of St Mungo's Park, the response to the properties has been overwhelming. With just one property remaining we have urged any interested buyers to get in touch as soon as possible.

"Buyers interested in St Mungo's Park have the option to buy a share in a property from 25%. This really is a great opportunity for those in Northamptonshire who no longer want to just pay rent to a landlord each month, but are struggling to get onto the property ladder".
