Help to Buy now available at Copley Hanwell W7, Ealing

Help to Buy has launched at Alton Court, enabling more homebuyers to secure a contemporary, stylish London property in Ealing with a deposit of just 5%. The Help to Buy scheme means that the government will lend 40% of the home’s value – interest free for the first five years – so a mortgage for only 55% of the full amount will need to be arranged.

The homes at Alton Court provide the first opportunity for buyers to be a part of Copley Hanwell W7, the flagship regeneration and development by Broadway Living; Help to Buy is available for 20 houses and apartments, while a further 13 homes are for Shared Ownership. Each home is designed to Broadway Living’s high-quality specification and premium finish, showcased in the two-bedroom show apartment which has recently opened for viewings by appointment.

The development at Copley Hanwell W7 will involve eight phases, each with its own distinct sense of identity. On completion, the neighbourhood will offer a collection of refurbished and newly-built homes providing a range of tenures. Whether a refurbished or new home, each will offer a contemporary design and a high specification, and will be set within attractive public space.

Broadway Living is a pioneering developer of high-quality, mixed-tenure homes which is wholly owned by Ealing Council. Representing a new approach for council-led development, Broadway Living’s innovative model means that, using the profits made on private sales and rental properties, it can deliver more affordable housing for Ealing’s residents. The developer’s plans for a diverse range of homes across Ealing will meet the needs and aspirations of a range of residents and buyers with desirable, contemporary places to live.

Ealing is considered one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the capital. Conveniently located within easy reach of the centre of London, Hanwell itself offers over eight sq km of green space and is home to a mix of cafes, pubs and eateries to suit all tastes and budgets.

Castle Bar Park train station is situated at the centre of the development, offering direct services to London Paddington in 22 minutes. Copley Hanwell W7 is just a ten-minute cycle from Ealing Broadway station, which is connected by the Overground, District and Central Line train services, while Hanwell station, along with West Ealing and Ealing Broadway, will offer high-speed Crossrail services into central London and beyond from 2018.

The homes at Alton Court will be ready for occupation from Q1 2018, and are priced from £339,000. To visit the showhome at Alton Court or to find out more about Broadway Living and its developments across Ealing, visit www.broadwayliving.co.uk.
