New homes in leafy Leicester

Monday 03 August 2015

Three family homes have been unveiled at a brand new development in Leicester.

Situated between Anstey and Groby, the new build properties by Riverside Home Ownership are ideally located for young professionals and growing families.  

Set in picturesque surroundings at Graves Way, the high specification homes offer all the charm of the English countryside but with excellent transport links to the city centre.

With quick access to the M1 and A50, the properties present an attractive option for professionals who make the daily commute to Leicester city centre, which is just five miles away.

"St James's Gate is a beautiful development of new homes and we are thrilled to offer them with our Shared Ownership scheme," says Jennifer Bailey, Sales Negotiator.

"Due to the desirable location and affordability, the homes are already attracting interest from prospective buyers and we expect the development will be a great success." 

St James' Gate offers three spacious, terraced properties with two three-bedroom and one two-bedroom houses available to purchase through Shared Ownership, the government backed part rent part buy scheme.

Ideal for first time buyers, Shared Ownership gives buyers the option of purchasing a 25% - 75% share of a property, and paying a reduced rent on the remainder.

These stunning new homes are available from just £43, 738 for a 25% share and the reduced deposit makes it easier for first time buyers to get a foot onto the property ladder.

Furthermore, the scheme allows home owners to gradually increase ownership of their home and buy further shares in the future.

Riverside Home Ownership has a further five properties to offer at St James's Gate which will be available from 2016.
