London and Quadrant: Set to unveil new Shared Ownership homes in Mill Hill, NW7

This weekend, leading developer and housing provider L&Q are unveiling L&Q at Ridgeway Views – an attractive collection of 131 high quality Shared Ownership homes in the leafy suburb of Mill Hill, North West London. The first phase comprises one, two and three bedroom apartments with private outdoor space.

Enjoying a hilltop position on the site of the former National Institute for Medical Research, the development will provide a helping hand to those priced out of the private sale market, with the current average price of a property in Mill Hill standing at £742,319 according to Zoopla. Shared Ownership at the development will allow buyers to purchase a share in a home from £93,125 for a 25% share, while paying reduced rent to L&Q on the remaining portion.

The homes at L&Q at Ridgeway Views are situated across a mixture of striking brick mid-rise blocks, amongst attractive landscaping that includes a central park area and reflects the wider green surroundings of the area. Internally, the homes are spacious and light filled, with a contemporary specification including oak Amtico Spacia flooring, sleek kitchens with integrated Zanussi appliances and bedrooms with integrated mirrored wardrobes. Each home also benefits from a private balcony or terrace, as well as parking and secure cycle storage.

Situated in the borough of Barnet, Mill Hill offers an appealing mixture of attractive suburban living with city connections. There is an abundance of green space on the doorstep including the sprawling 35 acre Mill Hill Park and adjoining Arrandene Open Space and Featherstone Hill, plus the nearby Darlands Lake Nature Reserve to the north. Meanwhile, there is a wide range of amenities at nearby Mill Hill Broadway including a mixture of independent and chain shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as further retail and leisure opportunities at Brent Cross, which is undergoing a £1.4 billion redevelopment.

Karen Mensah, Assistant Director of Marketing at L&Q, comments: “There is a limited supply of Shared Ownership properties in this area of London, so we hope that L&Q at Ridgeway Views will make a real difference in helping people to realise their aspirations of home ownership. The development combines the best of spacious suburban surroundings with excellent amenities and transport links – resulting in strong levels of early interest already.”

Despite enjoying a semi-rural location, there are strong local transport links; nearby Mill Hill East Underground (Zone 4) provides Northern Line services, reaching Euston and Kings Cross within 25 minutes, while Mill Hill Broadway station provides Northern and Thameslink service connections into and out of the city. There is also a good local bus network.

Prices for a one bedroom apartment start at £372,500 with a 25% share starting from £93,125. To find out more please visit
