So Resi Sutton

Homes in desirable South West London are made affordable with shared ownership

If you think that buying a high-quality new home in Sutton, South West London, is unaffordable, So Resi Sutton may change your mind. This collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments is part of the landmark development Sutton Point, and you could buy a 25% share in a one-bedroom home for as little as £73,750 (full market value £295,000) with a ten per cent deposit of just £7,375.

Through shared ownership, homebuyers pay straightforward monthly payments, which combine the mortgage on the share they have purchased and a payment to So Resi on the rest. They also pay a service charge.

The homes at So Resi Sutton are in the West Tower of Sutton Point, an exciting £90m mixed-use development by CNM Estates. Due for completion later this year, Sutton Point will include shops, restaurants, a health and fitness centre and children’s play area.

Inside the homes, the contemporary open-plan living/dining space is light and airy with full height windows; the area opens out onto a balcony. The excellent specification includes an elegant white Symphony Manhattan kitchen fitted with the latest appliances, including ceramic floor tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom as well as underfloor heating throughout.

On selected homes, allocated parking spaces are located in the underground car park and a cycle store is also provided.

Commuting could not be easier from Sutton Station, which is just a couple of minutes’ walk away. Trains to London Victoria take as little as 25 minutes and direct trains reach Gatwick in around 45 minutes.

The High Street, full of restaurants and shops, is just a few minutes’ walk from So Resi Sutton. Also nearby is a number of green open spaces and outstanding schools, including grammars, which rank among the highest performing schools in the UK.

So Resi has launched a contemporary collection of one and two-bedroom, shared ownership apartments in Twickenham – with local residents and those working in the area being given the first opportunity to reserve a property. The shared ownership scheme means that homebuyers at So Resi Twickenham can buy a 25 per cent share (£101,250) of the full price of the home (£405,000), requiring just a 10 per cent deposit of £10,125 and paying a monthly So Resi payment on the share they don’t buy.

Originally built in the 1960s, So Resi has fully renovated the original building to create a collection of high-quality, modern homes.

Each home features floor-to-ceiling windows that allow an abundance of natural light to fill the main living areas, while integrated kitchen appliances and stylish fittings create a contemporary finish. Many residents on the higher floors will benefit from views towards Richmond Hill and Richmond Park as well as Twickenham Stadium, the River Thames and beyond. The development will also include a contemporary rooftop terrace, landscaped with plenty of seating for residents to relax outdoors.

Across town with the costs down!

News hit last week that millions of rail users in the UK will see the price of regulated rail fares rise by up to 3.6% this month. With commuters said to be the worst-hit by the increase, which is the highest since January 2013, we’ve taken a look at homes ideally located near alternative modes of transport which provide more beneficial routes in to work both financially and in terms of health.

Trinity Walk by Lovell Homes is situated in Woolwich, South East London meaning you can fly to work via the Emirates Air Line, which provides a cable car link across the River Thames between the Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Victoria Docks. This quirky mode of transport is operated by Transport for London and the duration of a single crossing is reduced to just five minutes in rush hour. Prices start at £3.50 per ticket each way, which equates to just £161 per calendar month if there is the maximum of 23 working days in the month. If you’re afraid of heights, why not take the River Bus Express, which operates from 20 piers between Putney and Woolwich. Your journey is made even easier now you can use contactless or Oyster cards to pay.

The homes at Chiswick Gate, which are available through shared ownership with Thames Valley Housing, are conveniently located to give residents access to a wide number of cycle paths in and around Chiswick. These paths provide residents with an alternative and active route in to work, and is also both economical and environmentally friendly, plus you can ride by Chiswick House and Gardens for a more scenic route.
