Discounted homes for local people

Local buyers have been offered the chance to snap up a stunning new home in Norwich at a preferential discounted price.

Charles Church Anglia is working with Norwich City Council to provide two affordable homes at 75 per cent of their market value at the Wentworth Gardens development off Newmarket Road.

Head of sales and marketing Alison Page said: “Wentworth Gardens has been one of our most popular developments recently. The last two homes here are now offered to local people with a priority housing need.

“Our bungalows are aimed at all age groups, and one of their major attractions is the space they offer. The two bedroom ‘St Andrews’ style bungalows each have a large living room, two good sized bedrooms, beautifully appointed kitchen and a family bathroom – as well as a garden. You don’t get that in an apartment!

“Qualifying local people can purchase one of these new homes with a five per cent deposit and a 70 per cent mortgage. The remaining 25 per cent is an equity share held by the Council, which can be bought back by the homeowner at a later date.

“This means that one of these beautiful bungalows would be available for just £142,465 rather than the normal asking price of £189,950 – a great deal for a local person.”

Anyone wanting to know more about the affordable homes scheme can contact the Charles Church sales team based at Brazen Plain, Brazen Gate in Norwich, or call 0843 357 6546. The sales office is open Thursday to Monday 10.30am to 5.30pm.

Everyone who registers an interest will have their details assessed against Norwich City Council’s eligibility criteria and prioritised according to housing need.
