First time buyers given the opportunity to get on the property ladder in sought after Wolvercote, Oxford 

Catalyst Homes has just released from plan its brand new collection of Shared Ownership homes at the former Wolvercote Paper Mill in Oxford. 

The site, which was used as a mill for about four centuries but ceased paper production in 1997, is being transformed into a brand new community by Cala Homes. 

Catalyst will be creating 19, one, two and three bedroom apartments and three bedroom houses which are ideal for first time buyers, renters looking to buy their own property and young families. Each property will feature a contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances included in the price and parking for each property. 

Gareth Gow, Area Sales Manager for Catalyst Homes comments, “Oxford is an extremely desirable place to live and Wolvercote provides the best of both worlds, with its stunning village location but right on the edge of the historic city of Oxford. We have already received a great deal of interest for the homes and are expecting that they will prove to be really popular.” 

Shared Ownership is a successful government run initiative that enables you to buy a share of a new build property and pay a reduced rent on the remaining share. You will purchase the maximum share that you can afford, between 25% -75% of the full market value. The combined monthly cost of your rent and mortgage will usually be less than buying the property outright due to the rent being subsidisedHomes at Wolvercote, Oxford 

Priority on the homes at Wolvercote Mills will be given to those who live or work in Oxford, have a household income that does not exceed £80,000 and do not already own or have their name on the deeds to another property. 

Rich in history and architectural splendour as well as home to one of the oldest prestigious universities, the dreaming spires of Oxford City Centre offers a cosmopolitan lifestyle rich in new and old with a wealth of bars, restaurants and shopping at the new Westgate Centre.
