Shared ownership launches at QE2

4th December 2017 Print
Origin Housing QE2

Origin Housing launch another phase of the renowned QE2-15: a collection of high specification homes available through shared ownership in the commuter haven of Welwyn Garden City.

There are 6 1 and 2 bedroom apartments available, set amongst large open spaces and surrounding woodland. The properties are part of a significant new development for the area, Bellway at QEII, close to Hertfordshire’s QEII Hospital that has recently undergone an impressive transformation.

Simon Scott, Head of Sales & Marketing, comments, “We are pleased to be offering shared ownership in this highly commutable part of Hertfordshire. Earlier this year, a report by Halifax showed that prices in Welwyn Garden City have risen by 67% in the last 10 years - more than any new town in the UK. This means that schemes like shared ownership are essential to help first time buyers onto the ladder in the area.”

Internally, these new homes are completed to the highest specification – including high gloss fully fitted kitchens, cleverly concealing a wide range of Zanussi appliances and set within attractive open plan living spaces. Each bathroom comes with pristine white sanitary ware with attractive flooring and appliances throughout. Encouraging green travel, all apartments are equipped with cycle storage. Modern winter gardens or balconies are also available; looking out over the surrounding woodlands, which give buyers a great mixture of contemporary city living and a feeling of country escape.

Ideal for families, the area offers a number of highly-regarded schools – with Commonswood Primary and Nursery School just a 10-minute walk from the development, and Stanborough School is easily reached by car in just five minutes. Sports fans won’t be disappointed, with the 50-acre Gosling Sports Park just a short drive away – which has is home to a dry ski slope, gym, football pitches, an athletics track, velodrome, swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, as well as children’s play areas.

Perfect for commuters, Welwyn Garden City is just 20 minutes from London Kings Cross by train. The attractive town centre offers a plethora of shops and restaurants in the Howard Centre shopping mall and surrounding streets. For culture vultures, there are two cinemas and a theatre. The nearby picturesque Welwyn Village and surrounding countryside offer the best of both worlds - seamlessly blending town and country living.

Prices for the remaining homes at QE2-15 start from £67,518, a 30% share of £225,060, with estimated monthly costs of £836.

In time for Christmas, Origin Housing will host a launch weekend at QE2-15 on 2 December, appointments can be booked now via the website, or their Twitter @OriginNewHomes.
