New scheme offers shared ownership homes in Sawtry

A collection of new-build properties at Bovis Homes’ Judith Gardens location in Sawtry are now available under a shared ownership scheme, designed to help more people get onto the property ladder.

A number of selected two, three and four-bedroom homes at the development, off Gidding Road, are on sale through the Home Stepper initiative.

Bovis Homes has teamed up with Sage Homes, which is England’s largest provider of new-build affordable homes, to offer a shared ownership arrangement where the customer buys a percentage share of the property and pays rent on the rest.

This means that a 50 per cent share in a four-bedroom Juniper home at Judith Gardens can be purchased for as little as £206,750 and a similar share of a four-bedroom Aspen property is available at £222,125. Buyers can secure a 50 per cent share in a three-bedroom Cypress home for £182,500 and a half share in a two-bedroom Hawthorn for £138,625.

Potential purchasers can take a look inside the Aspen which opened this September, The Juniper view home is also already available to look around, which opened this Spring. As well as the two show homes, The Cypress and The Chestnut.

Dina Pittore, marketing manager at Bovis Homes, said: “The Home Stepper scheme makes buying a top-quality property from Bovis Homes at Judith Gardens much more affordable, and allows those who have been saving for a deposit for a home to get onto the property ladder more quickly.

“The initiative has already been successful and has given first-time buyers and young purchasers the opportunity to secure a fabulous new-build home which might otherwise have been beyond their budget.

“To give potential buyers a better idea of what it might be like to live in one of these properties at Judith Gardens, we are opening another popular house type, The Aspen property here as a view home. This is a property which has been completed but is not fully furnished. What it does is enable the customer to walk inside the home and get a full appreciation of the quality of the finish and the size and layout of the property.

“The Aspen is superb family home with a spacious kitchen/dining area spanning the back of the house with bi-fold doors to the rear garden, and a separate lounge, study and cloakroom/utility room. Upstairs, the main bedroom has an en suite, while the other three bedrooms share a family bathroom.

“Home Stepper will enable a range of people to buy a new-build home here which suits their needs, whether that be a young couple who want a two-bedroom property or a family who require the extra space that four bedrooms provides.”
