Set on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic market town of Tring offers peaceful country living within easy commuting distance of London. With excellent connections, including under 45 minute travel time to London Euston and direct routes to Oxford and Cambridge, you really are at the centre of it all.

When you’re ready to explore all that Tring has to offer, you can take advantage of the local football, cricket, hockey and golf clubs, together with a sports and leisure centre. Or enjoy the green spaces in the town itself and the nearby College Lake Nature Reserve is a great day out. Or head in the opposite direction and explore Wendover Woods. Wherever you choose to explore, you’ll truly feel at home being surrounded by some of England’s most beautiful countryside.

Your new home is surrounded by local amenities, including the choice of supermarkets and local shops, a post office, schools, pharmacy and doctors’ surgery on hand. There is even a pop-up cinema nearby that is perfect to spend your weekends at! No wonder Tring is such a desirable area to get on the property ladder.

Legal & General Affordable Homes is offering a unique opportunity to purchase a new home here through Shared Ownership. Thanks to this scheme, you can own your own home with a lower deposit than is required to buy outright or with other buying schemes.

Local Area - Options in every direction

You will never be bored living at Icknield Way as the surrounding area is full of interesting places to visit and fun things to do such as the Rogue Racing Go-Kart centre at Aylesbury and Whipsnade Zoo for example. Aylesbury has a bowling alley too, together with waterside theatre and an impressive shopping arcade, while Berkhamsted boasts its very own castle and a country estate at Ashridge House that used to be home to Henry VIII.

The Chilterns are on your doorstep and Tring was originally an easy passing place through the hills. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is full of hiking and cycle trails, historic buildings and delightful tea rooms. And you don’t have to travel very much further to reach the Cotswolds with its picturesque villages (and not to mention the designer bargains at Bicester!)

Imaging spending your weekends exploring the historic colleges and gourmet restaurants of Cambridge or the next enjoying a day at the races in Newmarket. Living at Icknield Way, you’ll never run out of exciting new experiences to enjoy both near and far.

With direct trains in under 45 minutes into London Euston and direct trains to Milton Keynes, you really are perfectly placed. Tring railway station is located just outside the town and there is also an excellent bus service to local destinations and across Hertfordshire.

The A41 runs close to the town, linking you directly to the M40 (for Oxford and Birmingham) and the M25 (for connections to the M1 and national motorway network).

Ready to explore further afield? The nearest airport is Luton, but Stansted is also handy and Heathrow is easy to reach via the M25. Yet perhaps the best form of transport is to pull on your walking shoes or take your bike and spend a leisurely afternoon following the towpath alongside the nearby Grand Union Canal.

The first phase of homes at Icknield Way will be ready to move into from Winter 2022.

WHAT IS SHARED OWNERSHIP?
Shared Ownership is a more affordable way to have the security and stability of owning your own home. Shared Ownership is a government backed part buy/part rent scheme designed to help you take that first step on the property ladder. The scheme enables buyers to purchase a share of the value of the home - this is usually between 40 to 75 percent of the value of the property - and pay a subsidised rent on the remaining portion. You have the option to buy a bigger share in the property at a later date (known as Staircasing).

Legal & General Affordable Homes are a Registered Provider offering these apartments for sale on a Shared Ownership basis. We are creating communities to live, grow and flourish and are committed to removing the stress and anxiety associated with moving house, whilst delivering customer satisfaction and quality new homes.

*Council Tax: TBC
Council tax bands are often not released until the property is complete. If you need any guidance, please get in touch with our Sales Consultants otherwise the local authority or the developer may be able to help.

Monthly Cost Calculator

The ‘estimated total monthly cost’ for a Shared Ownership property consists of three separate elements added together: rent, service charge and mortgage.

Read More Read Less
  • Rent: This is charged on the share you do not own and is usually payable to a housing association (rent is not generally payable on shared equity schemes).
  • Service Charge: Covers maintenance and repairs for communal areas within your development.
  • Mortgage: Share to Buy use a database of mortgage rates to work out the rate likely to be available for the deposit amount shown, and then generate an estimated monthly plan on a 25 year capital repayment basis.

NB: This mortgage estimate is not confirmation that you can obtain a mortgage and you will need to satisfy the requirements of the relevant mortgage lender. This is not a guarantee that in practice you would be able to apply for such a rate, nor is this a recommendation that the rate used would be the best product for you.
