As we are all too well aware, Haddenham is experiencing rapid growth, with lots of new houses going up around us.
In this context, one of the most commonly expressed concerns from local families relates to the cost of buying a new home — how might young people get on the first rung of the housing ladder and continue to live in the area in which they have grown up?
One possible option is 'shared ownership' in partnership with a housing association.
We have been informed that the Hightown Housing Association is currently offering new build homes for shared ownership in Haddenham.
Here are the headline facts & statistics:
Location: Millway Furlong, HP17 8DG
Properties: Two bedroom terrace houses with private fenced gardens with a small patio and parking.
- Full market value: from £330,000 (plus £500 towards legal fees)
- 50% Shared ownership
- Share price: £165,000
- Rent: £481.25
- Service charge: £50.83
Some Haddenham families might be disappointed to learn that "no local connection is needed to purchase one of these new homes".
