The popular west London borough of Hounslow has been voted one of the top 10 first time buyer hotspots in the Capital. Boasting some of the best transport connections of any London borough, a bustling town centre undergoing an £18.5million investment program and bordered by the affluent districts of Chiswick and Twickenham, home hunters should definitely pay a visit to Notting Hill Genesis’ new development, The Staging Post. Available to buy with Shared Ownership, buyers can purchase a one-bedroom apartment with deposits starting from just £8,000* – more than £100,000 less than the London average.
Furthermore, buyers who reserve a home during February, Notting Hill Genesis will pay the first three months’ rent – saving purchasers more than £1,500!**
Shared Ownership offers buyers at The Staging Post the chance to buy a share of a home’s value, between 25% and 75%, while paying a subsidised rent on the remaining share. The lower deposit level required with Notting Hill Genesis’ Shared Ownership scheme, means purchasers need only put down a deposit on the share they purchase and not the full market value of the property. This means you can become a home owner with a lower level of savings than if you were to buy the same home outright. Purchasers can choose to buy further shares on their property as and when they can afford to.
The Staging Post offers the best of both worlds in more ways than one. Seamlessly marrying old with new, ‘The Lawn’ is a valuable grade II listed building which belonged to The Bulstrode family and forms an important part of Lampton’s agricultural and brickmaking history. Having been carefully restored to its original mid-19th century glory, this building now houses a selection of the development’s two-bedroom apartments. Enjoying an enviable location just outside London, buyers can reach the centre of town in a little over 30 minutes, yet still enjoy 40 acres of parkland that surrounds this stylish collection of homes. Less than a five-minute walk away is Hounslow Central station, served by the Piccadilly Line, Heathrow airport is just two tube stops away, and is also part of the 24-hour night tube service – buyers will be able to get home with ease.
James Munson, Head of Marketing at Notting Hill Genesis, comments: “The homes at The Staging Post have been designed with London first time buyers in mind. From the high-quality specification and thoughtful layouts to the superb location and amenities that are on the doorstep – this is a great opportunity to buy a new home that will benefit from future area improvements, and more importantly, offers aspiring home owners fantastic value for money.”
All of the Shared Ownership properties at The Staging Post feature modern and contemporary detailing that perfectly supports today’s busy city lifestyles. Layouts are adaptable and functional and each home enjoys access to a private balcony, with some enjoying views overlooking Lampton Park. Floor to ceiling height windows offer an impressive sense of space and light, open-plan living and dining areas provide a flexible space for entertaining and kitchens are sleek in design and come complete with a selection of Zanussi appliances. In particular, The Lawn building is characterised by its most distinctive Doric porch and the fringed cast-iron hoods above all the front windows.
Residents at The Staging Post have access to superb range of amenities all within a few minutes’ walk, including the Treaty Shopping Centre for everyday essentials and more, as well as cafes and bars for a bite to eat on Chiswick High Road. Upmarket shopping at Richmond and Kew Gardens are just a short drive away, while for sport lovers the home rugby matches in Twickenham are even closer.
