The first homes at The Gables, in the market town of Attleborough, just south west of Norwich, have been launched for those looking to get onto the property ladder. Available with shared ownership by Latimer, the development arm of Clarion Housing Group, two-bedroom coach houses at the new development cost £86,000 for a 40% share of the home, meaning buyers need a deposit of just £4,400. Given the average deposit paid by a first-time buyer in East England in 2023 is £72,000, according to Zoopla, The Gables provides an outstanding opportunity to take a step onto the property ladder without the need for such an eye-watering sum.

With a selection of three and four bedroom terrace and semi-detached houses, along with the unique coach house style homes, the exceptional quality of the properties being built at The Gables is now available to view. The exteriors reflect the traditional architectural character of the area, while the interiors deliver contemporary, open plan kitchen and living spaces. Moving upstairs, a double bedroom with ensuite, a single second bedroom, family bathroom and plentiful storage complete the home. Designed in line with first-time buyers’ preferences for a house rather than an apartment, the homes will form part of a new community.

The stunning houses deliver not only in visual and quality terms but also on the sustainability front.  Showcasing extensive green space, playing fields, and ponds, The Gables successfully balances contemporary style with rural charm, blending seamlessly alongside Attleborough’s local vernacular. All homes include a number of energy efficient attributes and internal finishes that exceed a standard specification. All properties are completely ‘gas free’, with energy efficient appliances and air-source heat pumps installed, which could reduce residents’ carbon footprint and energy costs. High levels of insulation and heat-saving glazing keep homes warm as well as cheaper to run[3]. Cycle and pedestrian routes meander through this scenic development, and the abundant green space features play areas to encourage children to enjoy time outdoors.

In addition to the stylish coach houses, Latimer will also be unveiling further two, three and four- bedroom homes in this peaceful location.  Each of the properties feature high-specification fixtures and fittings, from soft-close cupboards, integrated appliances and Amtico flooring in kitchens to bathrooms with porcelain floor tiles, full height tiling around the bath and contemporary white sanitaryware. A mix of pendant lights and downlights create ambiance in every room, while underfloor heating keeps toes warm on even the coldest of winter days.

Hannah Smart, Acting Sales Director at Latimer, comments: “The quality of the homes at The Gables is exceptional. They highlight the fact that shared ownership doesn’t mean making compromises when you buy with Latimer. The care that has gone into creating them really shines through in every detail. We are delighted to be making such superb houses available to first-time buyers who are keen to get onto that all-important first rung of the property ladder.”

The Gables’ location enables residents to easily walk into Attleborough, where historic buildings surround the central green. The town has all the shops, restaurants, cafes and services needed for everyday life, plus a bustling weekly market and fortnightly Makers’ Market offering artisan foods and crafts. There are ‘Good’ Ofsted-rated schools and a vast array of options for spending time in nature in the local area, from open countryside and rivers to the rich greenery of Thetford Forest. The entire Norfolk coastline can also be reached in around an hour by car, from the bright lights of the funfair at Great Yarmouth to quiet serenity and seal-watching opportunities at Cromer and Blakeney.
