Commuters! get more for your money further down the line
Where can you find an affordable, spacious two bedroom apartment with a top of the range specification, from just £47,425 for a 35% share? Add to this excellent commuter links into the City and it is unlikely you would find a match for Family Mosaic’s brand new apartments at Fort House in Thurrock which offer all of this and more.
Family Mosaic highlights how choosing a new home a couple of stops further down the line could save you thousands when purchasing a new home. According to leading estate agents Savills, if you are happy to add a quarter of an hour each way to your daily commute, you could save a small fortune on property. They examined the property prices in traditional commuter towns, and then did the same for towns just a bit further down the track and discovered that commuters could save up to £8,000 for every minute they add to the journey.
Lauren Nicholson, Head of Marketing at Family Mosaic comments: “Fort House is ideal for couples who are looking to upgrade their home without having to pay the hefty price tag of a similar property in London. Commuting into London couldn’t be easier from the development, taking just over 30 minutes from Chafford Hundred into London Fenchurch Street which in fact is less time than it takes to get from one side of London to the other!”
Each apartment at Fort House provides affordable, spacious accommodation with a high quality specification throughout, complete with parking. The properties boast an open plan kitchen and lounge area that opens onto a balcony for ease and relaxation. There is a spacious master bedroom, separate bedroom for guests or family plus a bathroom stylishly fitted with chrome finishes and ceramic floor tiles.
Fort House, situated in the town of Thurrock, is home to Lakeside - Britain’s top shopping and leisure destination with 250+ shops, restaurants, cafes and a nine screen cinema. Nearby is the Lakeside Diving and Watersports Centre for the adventurous, but for those who enjoy peaceful surroundings, there are marshland wildlife habitats along the River Thames with large areas of green belt countryside. Picturesque villages, with traditional country pubs surround this area, offering a relaxing living environment.
The apartments are just two miles from Chafford Hundred station, for quick commuting into central London and adjoining areas in Essex. The M25 and A282 are also in close proximity making Thurrock an ideal location.
Buying under shared ownership at the development allows purchasers to buy the share of their home that they can afford (at least 35%), and pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share of the property. They can increase their share at any time, right up to 100%.
Prices at Fort House start from £47,425 for a 35% share of a two bedroom apartment based on the full market value of £135,500. Visit familymosaicsales.co.uk for further information.
