Clarion Housing: Latest phase of Shared Ownership homes go on sale at Ebbsfleet Garden City

Clarion Housing, the UK’s largest social landlord, has released its latest selection of homes to buy at Ebbsfleet Garden City, Kent.

Located within Castle Hill, Castle Rise comprises 46 stylish one and two bedroom apartments for Shared Ownership. The homes – which are aimed at first time buyers who may not be able to buy a home on the open market – are now available to buy off-plan.

Buyers can snap up a 35% share of a one bedroom apartment at the scheme for £78,750 (full market value of £225,000) and 35% of a two bedroom apartment for £94,500 (full market value of £270,000).

Clarion is playing a major role in the creation of Ebbsfleet Garden City. At Castle Hill 425 Shared Ownership and affordable rented homes are being built, while up to 2,600 homes will be delivered at Eastern Quarry through a joint venture with Countryside.

Ebbsfleet is the government’s flagship garden city. Over 15 years the garden city is being transformed with 15,000 new homes along with new schools, community facilities and shops. The area’s natural beauty is also being enhanced with newly created open spaces and parklands.

Homeowners at Castle Rise will also benefit from ultra-quick connections to central London and Paris via Ebbsfleet International – trains to St Pancras International take just 17 minutes and Stratford International only 11 minutes.

Tim Seward, Sales Director for Clarion Housing said: “Ebbsfleet Garden City is the perfect destination for families and young professionals seeking to put down roots for the long term.

“Castle Rise is unique in that it has beautiful green countryside on the door step, while at the same time being perfectly placed to take advantage of the high-speed transport links into the capital.”
