Origin Housing is holding an Open Day this Saturday, 5th May 2012, at its Aldenham Square development in Bushey, so that house-hunters interested in buying one of these affordable new homes in Hertfordshire can see the properties for themselves and find out more about the part-buy/part-rent scheme through which they are available. The event takes place at the development from 10.30am to 4.30pm and booking an appointment is advisable (call 0845 388 5994).
The development features a mix of tenures, including properties for outright sale and 18 apartments that will be occupied on an affordable rent basis. Six of the homes will be sold via a shared ownership scheme, with a minimum purchase of 25%. This means that a quarter share of a one-bedroom apartment valued at £185,000 can be purchased for £46,250. With a subsidised rent and a service charge payable on the un-owned portion, typical monthly expenditure is estimated by Origin Housing to be from £715.
Every one of the shared ownership homes boasts a superb specification that includes a fully fitted kitchen with a range of appliances, including fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher, stylish bathrooms, secure video entry and an allocated parking space. Four of these properties are two-bedroom duplexes, with an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room downstairs and the bedrooms and family bathroom upstairs. Two of the duplexes feature large private terraces, for an added touch of luxury.
Situated in desirable Bushey Village, Aldenham Square is ideally located for local shops, schools and amenities as well as for the rail station, which has regular services into London Euston taking just 19 minutes. The extensive shopping and leisure facilities of Watford are easy to reach by rail or bus.
