Monarchs Keep apartments

Brand new apartments launched at Monarchs Keep in Southampton

First time buyers seeking modern living in an attractive setting need look no further than Barratt Homes at Monarchs Keep in Bursledon. The five star housebuilder is releasing a selection of new two-bedroom apartments, designed to make the first step on the property ladder excitingly affordable.

“Often, first time buyers feel they must make do with a home that doesn’t thrill them – just because the cost of buying their dream property prevents them from doing so,” said sales director, Michelle Storer. “We don’t feel this is fair. People work hard to make that first step on to the ladder – and we have schemes, like Help to Buy, to give them an extra boost into a home they will love.”

All the new apartments are available under Help to Buy, which is offered on new-build homes up to £600,000. Buyers can become owners with just a five per cent deposit of the property value of their new home. Many lenders are able to offer a loan-to-value mortgage because the UK Government provides a guarantee of up to 20 per cent.

The new two-bedroom apartments will make up Berry Court and are priced from £226,500. They offer an open plan living space that combines the kitchen, dining and living areas. There are two double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom, and all apartments come with parking and plenty of storage space.

“These apartments make the ideal first home,” added Michelle. “They are affordable but that doesn’t take away from the quality of the build and design. And it’s not only those entering the property market who are finding them attractive. We’re getting interest from a range of buyers – including those who are retiring and from investors – all keen to take advantage of everything Monarchs Keep has to offer.”

Monarchs Keep is a fantastic collection of new homes in Bursledon, a popular village on the River Hamble. There is a great choice of local schools, shops, places to eat and a selection of pubs overlooking the River nearby. Beautiful country parks and woodlands are also within easy reach.
