College Court Alton apartment.200beaef17969471

Style and Convenience at an Affordable Price

Latest designs at College Court, in Wigan, combine all the character  and ‘Arts & Crafts’ style architecture of Redrow’s New Heritage Collection with the convenience of apartment living.

And they’re available through a special shared equity scheme, which means eligible buyers only have to find 70% of the purchase price to get on the property ladder.

“This means someone can own a brand new two-bedroom apartment for just £69,997,” said Lesley Myers, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (Lancashire).

“And our Alton style properties prove that apartments don’t have to come in bland blocks.  Each has its own independent access and offers modern, spacious, energy efficient, two-bedroom living, all within a good looking exterior that boasts real character and authentic style.”

The Alton apartments add to the range of homes available at College Court, off Robin Park Road, where two, three and four-bedroom houses from £113,995 to £187,995 have been selling well.

Centrally placed in a popular market town, local amenities include supermarkets, a retail park, cinema, sports facilities and restaurants. Wigan’s Grand Arcade shopping centre boasts a range of popular high street stores, cafes and bars and the development is within easy reach of the M6 motorway and train network for commuting.

Inside, the homes are bright and modern, boasting well-equipped kitchens fitted with integrated top brand name appliances including oven, hob and fridge freezer; while bathrooms and en-suites enjoy quality fixtures and fittings.

There’s a range of help to make owning a new home at College Court even easier, including the Government’s NewBuy scheme which makes new homes available with a 95% mortgage; the FirstBuy initiative that offers a 20% equity loan towards the cost of a new home; or Wigan Council’s own affordable  homes scheme which reduces the initial price by 30%.

“Potential customers should call in to view our show homes and talk about the option that’s best for them,” Lesley added.

College Court is open Thursday to Monday inclusive from 10am to 5.30pm; call 01943 686 169 or see for more information.
