Best of both worlds at Long Buckby and Crick

FIRST-TIME buyers can enjoy the best of both worlds with our affordable new homes at two new Bromford Homes developments near Northampton.

You can make the most of rural life in the thriving historic villages of Long Buckby or Crick − surrounded by beautiful Northamptonshire countryside − AND take advantage of great commuter links.

Travelling to Birmingham, Northampton or London is easy thanks to the local railway station a few minutes walk away from Buckby Meadows while Crick's St Margaret's View is a short hop from the nearest junction of the M1.

Add Bromford's low shared ownership prices, which start from just £66,000* for a two-bed Ravensthorpe house or £78,200** for a three-bed Hollowell at Buckby Meadows, and you've got a real win-win way of getting onto the county's property ladder.

The Haddon

That's the message to local first-time buyers from Bromford Homes Head of Sales Alan Bradley as some of our homes head for March completion and prices are confirmed at St Margaret's View (pictured above).

His advice is simple. "Be quick or you could miss out on this truly affordable opportunity to make your property dream come true," says Alan.

"These are great homes at great prices − and they're great locations. But we've got just a few these homes at each development and, once the word gets out, we believe it won't be long before they're snapped up. And don't forget − local people get top priority."

The secret of those low prices − and equally low deposits that can be as little as £3,300* for a two-bed − is shared ownership's low purchase prices and deposits.

In the case of St Margaret's View, £74,000*** would buy a 40% share of a two-bed and a minimum 5% deposit would be £3,700. Our Crick three-beds are equally affordable, with shared ownership prices starting from £84,000*** for a 40% share and a minimum deposit from £4,200.

This explains why so many singletons, couples and young families in Northants and across central England are saying such a big YES to shared ownership," says Alan. "Our high-quality, low-cost homes are ideal for people in and around villages like Long Buckby and Crick − people who want to stay in the place where they've got family and friends but can't afford to buy on the open market."
