Shared ownership homes in Millharbour are a prime target for eager first time buyers looking to climb the property ladder
More than half (51%) of first-time buyers have revealed they will still buy a property this year, and 31% have even been able to bring their move forward by saving the money they would have spent on commuting and social activities, and putting it towards the deposit for their new home. For London buyers determined to step into a new property before the year is out, Notting Hill Genesis is set to launch a new one bedroom collection of Shared Ownership homes at Dockside at Millharbour on Tuesday 28th July. Located within one of the world’s premier financial districts, this stylish development of one and two-bedroom apartments occupy the striking Salvor Tower building and are a perfect choice for city lovers wanting to live the London lifestyle for less.
This new release of shared ownership homes at Dockside comprises a modern collection of 15 one-bedroom apartments. Each property offers a spacious and well-planned layout, the open plan kitchen/living areas feature built-in Smeg appliances and direct access onto a private balcony – perfect for letting the outside in on summer days, and a great space to entertain friends and family with cityscape views. Generously sized bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes and floor to ceiling windows flood natural light into the room. Storage is plentiful too, with a large closet in the hall as well as a smaller utility cupboard with space for a washer/dryer. Adding to the distinguished city pad specification and perfect for the summer months, both the living area and bedroom also feature comfort cooling.
James Munson, Head of Marketing at Notting Hill Genesis comments: “First time buyers are an important part of the property chain, so it is very encouraging that this audience of purchasers are determined to go ahead with buying a home. The time that has recently been spent working from home has had a beneficial effect on people’s savings, and our new shared ownership apartments at Dockside at Millharbour are a great option for first time buyers who have budgets to stick to but who also want to live in London.”
