The first part of a Chelsteen Homes development has recently been completed in the popular village of Melbourn, just in time for Christmas.
Melde’s Keep, which was built by Chelsteen Homes, is made up of 11 properties in total including three and four bedroom houses. Aldwyck Housing Group has now sold their available units, a block of four affordable shared ownership apartments, with one or two bedrooms.
The development has provided much needed affordable housing to the rural area and many of the residents, who are from around the South Cambridge area, have been able to move into their new homes just in time for Christmas.
One new resident Emily Silk, said:
‘shared ownership has given me the chance to invest in a home in an area I would like to live in. It’s close to friends and family, ideal for work.’
‘With house prices as expensive as they are I was looking for the right opportunity and the shared ownership scheme helped me massively, I am very impressed! I have previously rented so it feels great to own something! The flat is lovely and I am so happy with it.’
The rest of the development is set to complete in 2016 and Aldwyck would like to wish the residents a happy New Year in their new homes.
