New images just released show the quality new homes for sale

New images just released show the quality new homes for sale that are set to provide a boost for people in Merseyside struggling to get on to the property ladder.

The images have been released by Oriel Living, part of the First Ark Group, as part of a joint venture with Seddon RDP to build 100 new homes in Halewood and Kirkby.

With so many people struggling to make it on to the property ladder at present, Oriel has confirmed that the homes will be available for Shared Ownership and outright sale, with the option to use the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.

The new homes will be built in two developments consisting of 50 properties each and are part of Oriel’s strategy to increase the number of affordable homes for sale across the North West.

Mill Croft will see the development of elegant, countryside-style homes in Kirkby, off Mill Lane, an area which is currently undergoing an exciting £200 million regeneration.

The Woodlands will be situated in Halewood, off Arncliffe Road and will provide modern, stylish homes ideal for families, young professionals and first-time buyers.

Both developments will be a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses and two-bedroom bungalows. The two developments represent an investment of around £12 million for Oriel and their joint venture partner Seddon.

Speaking about the new homes, Bob Taylor, Chief Executive at First Ark, said:

“This is a big step towards our goal of increasing the supply of affordable housing in the North West and these images demonstrate the high-quality properties we are bringing to market. We have always had a very good relationship with Knowsley Council and that partnership working has allowed us to get to this point.

“We are always looking for ways in which we can strengthen the communities in which we operate and this project will not just deliver homes for people who have struggled to get on to the property ladder, it has also created valuable local employment opportunities.”

Councillor Graham Morgan, cabinet member for regeneration and economic development at Knowsley Borough Council, said:

“We are all looking forward to seeing these new homes completed. These developments support our vision of increasing the number and quality of homes in the borough and improving access to housing for our residents.

“We are committed to delivering a balanced housing offer which meets the needs of our residents and attracts new people to the borough.”
