Local people struggling to get a foot on the property ladder in the Wyboston area could be eligible for one of three shared ownership homes which have just been released by affordable housing provider Stonewater Homes.

The smart new two- and three- bedroom homes at The Lane are being offered for sale at a starting price of £88,000 for a 40% share. Priority is being given to people with a strong connection to the local area.

“Shared ownership is a part-buy part-rent scheme which aims to help prospective buyers into home ownership by allowing them to purchase a percentage of their new property while paying a reduced rent on the remaining amount,” explains Victor Inegbese, Stonewater Homes Sales Executive for the scheme.

The two-storey Stonewater homes have been sensitively designed to fit in with the village’s local architecture and built to keep householders’ energy costs as low as possible. This has been achieved through innovative green heating systems such as air source heat pumps with ground-floor underfloor heating and double-glazed windows. The scheme will also feature an electric car charging point.

On the ground floor, the properties offer a stylish and flexible kitchen / dining area, a spacious living room and cloakroom, all linking into a good-sized hallway. The kitchen also comes with an integrated electric oven and hob, and cushioned vinyl flooring. Upstairs, the properties have comfortably-sized bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom. All three homes have private back gardens with a patio and parking provision.

“With the average open market home in Bedford more than nine times the typical local wage* many people are finding it harder and harder to find a good-quality home close to their family, friends and place of work which they can realistically afford,” says Victor Inegbese. “We are really excited to be releasing these new homes at The Lane which are within easy driving distance to St Neots and Bedford towns with their shopping and business facilities. Wyboston village is also close to a main line station at nearby St Neots and the A1 Great North Road and the M1.”
