Carling Jones Estate Agents in Skipton have been instructed by Craven District Council to sell brand new shared ownership properties throughout the Craven area.

The first project involves a development of three brand new houses at Burnroyd Avenue in Glusburn, which are due to be completed in July 2017.  The homes, which are aimed at first time buyers, will comprise modern kitchens, a good sized living room, two bedrooms plus a study and a modern bathroom. They will also benefit from a generous rear garden and off street parking.

The properties have been competitively priced at £69,975 for a 50% share.

Mark Carling, Director at Carling Jones, commented: ‘We are absolutely delighted that we are now working for Craven District Council, and we are really impressed with their proactive approach to helping first time buyers get a foot on the first rung of the property ladder.  The houses at Burnroyd Avenue are already out of the ground and the space that they offer is ideal for a couple or small family.’

Paul Ellis, Director of Services at Craven District Council, said: “We are pleased to have Carling Jones working with us on this scheme which is providing much-needed affordable housing for Craven residents. Shared ownership housing allows individuals on low to middle incomes to get their foot on the housing ladder sooner than they may otherwise be able to do so by requiring a much smaller deposit and mortgage.”
