NHG Homes: Shared Ownership apartments in Barnet, North London
Discover Heybourne Park – a brand new neighbourhood in Colindale
This September, NHG Homes is launching the first homes at Heybourne Park – a new development being created by the housing association in partnership with the London Borough of Barnet, which will transform this part of the borough and further position Colindale as a sought-after location for buyers in London.
Heybourne Park will offer homes through Shared Ownership, making it the ideal choice for first time buyers looking to put down roots in London at a more accessible price point. 149 one and two bedroom apartments will be available with through Shared Ownership in the first phase from September 21st. Prices start from £87,500 for a one bedroom apartment, with monthly costs of around £1,255, and £107,500, for a two bedroom apartment, with monthly costs of around £1,593 – both with a 25% share.
Set to be built over a period of 15 years, Heybourne Park will be home to 2,000 homes alongside modern retail space and public amenities. Based around the open space of Heybourne Park, residents have access to green space, an outdoor gym, library, and supermarket, and the coming years will see the creation of a new community plaza and café. NHG Homes has worked closely with the existing community in this part of Colindale to bring plans to life, creating new spaces for the community to come together and ensuring the history of the place is reflected in the new development.
Located on the historic grounds of the former Hendon Aerodrome, the development is steeped in history. Claude Grahame-White was a renowned air race contestant, and founded the first British flying club, before creating Hendon airfield in 1910, which was taken over by the Royal Air Force and became an important base during World War II.
NHG Homes’ collection of new apartments at Heybourne Park offers a sought-after balance between tranquil park-side living and the buzz of city life, with Central London just a short train ride away. Apartments are designed with contemporary living in mind, featuring high-quality integrated appliances, sleek fixtures and fittings, private outdoor space and a focus on energy efficiency. Residents will also have access to a landscaped communal podium garden.
Heybourne Park is just a stone’s throw from green, open spaces such as Watling Park and Hendon Park. For keen foodies, nearby Colindale is home to many restaurants, while there are also community and leisure spaces including gyms and health clubs nearby.
Through Shared Ownership, buyers purchase a share of the property with a mortgage (as little as 25% and up to 75%) and pay subsidised rent on the remaining share. The smaller deposit required means buyers won’t need to save as much as when purchasing at full market value, and their share can be increased over time to 100%. This allows buyers to own a property in the capital for a fraction of the price they would be required to pay if they were to purchase outright.
Colindale is well connected, and Heybourne Park is just a 15-minute walk away from Colindale Underground station, with trains running regularly into Central London on the Northern line. The vibrant markets of Camden town are just 20-minutes’ away on the tube, while commuters can reach Euston station in 25 minutes. Nearby Mill Hill Broadway train station gives residents access to Thameslink, so they can reach locations such as St. Albans and St. Pancras to grab the Eurostar to locations including Paris and Brussels.
Amie Triphook-Cole, Head of Sales at NHG Homes, said: “Colindale is emerging as an exciting part of North West London – and with high quality homes, superb transport connections, and plenty of local amenities, Heybourne Park is set to become popular with buyers. We’re proud to be working in partnership with Barnet Council to deliver this much-needed project, which is putting community at the heart of this revitalised neighbourhood.”
