Plumlife launches new affordable homes development in Standish, Wigan

We are launching Barrowcroft Green on December 8, 2017, a brand-new development of affordable homes in Standish near Wigan, with homes available for Shared Ownership.

Barrowcroft Green is a stylish collection of 11 three bedroom homes with superb eco-features, including new energy efficient boilers and full double-glazing. Each home has light, spacious rooms, modern fitted kitchens and eye catching, contemporary bathrooms.

The properties are being offered under Shared Ownership, a government-backed scheme which provides local people with an affordable way to buy a new home. The buyer purchases a share of the new home (usually between 35 and 75 per cent) and pays a small rent on the remaining part until they can take further shares to own the home outright.

Lisa Westerman, group head of sales at Plumlife, said: “Barrowcroft Green is our latest development to launch. Shared Ownership has many benefits – it puts home ownership within reach, with an affordable deposit and can benefit a variety of people including first time buyers, but also single people, retired people and families.

“You don’t have to be a first-time buyer as long as you fit the eligibility criteria which includes total household income at £80, 000 a year or less. If you think Shared Ownership might be right for you, come and talk to us to see how we can help.”

Two house types are on offer – the three bedroom Weaver and the three bedroom Ellesmere.

Barrowcroft Green is based within easy reach of both city life and green spaces, with Ashfield Park nearby. With many other amenities on the doorstep including shopping facilities in Standish town centre, supermarkets, Wigan Golf Course and Standish Medical Practice, there are also several highly recommended schools nearby – St Wilfred’s C of E Primary and Woodfold Primary are both Ofsted Outstanding and Shevington High School is Ofsted Good rating.

Great for commuters, Barrowcroft Green is situated just off Junction 27 of the M6 motorway, within easy reach of the M61 and offering direct links to Preston, Liverpool and Manchester. There’s also a regular bus service from Barrowcroft Green.

The Weaver starts at £71, 750 for a 35 per cent share (full value is £205,000) The Ellesmere starts at £73,500 for a 35 per cent share (full value £210,500) Deposit required is five percent of the share purchased.
