HOMEOWNERSHIP IS IN REACH FOR OXFORDSHIRE HOUSE-HUNTERS IN ABINGDON

The city of Oxford has seen one of the steepest house price growths in the South East over the last 12 months, pricing many homebuyers out of the area. Offering a lifeline for aspiring buyers with their hearts set on homeownership in Oxfordshire, affordable housing provider Sovereign Network Group (SNG) is proud to unveil its latest collection of Shared Ownership homes in the region. Continuing SNG’s presence in Oxford, Radley Reach in Abingdon-on-Thames is set to launch on Wednesday 12th June, offering an initial collection of one bedroom apartments and two bedroom houses with deposits from as little as £4,400 – perfect for buyers looking for a more affordable route onto the property ladder.

Conveniently situated at the centre of the picturesque market town of Abingdon, surrounded by the Oxfordshire countryside and just a short walk from the River Thames, Radley Reach will offer homebuyers a collection of stylish one bedroom apartments alongside two and three bedroom houses. Suitable for first-time buyers, downsizers or current shared owners looking to upsize, the first phase of applications at Radley Reach will be open for one week only until the 19th June 2024, with a second phase of applications due to launch in the winter.

Claire Blenkin, Head of Sales (South) at SNG, comments: “We’re excited to open applications for our first phase of homes at Radley Reach, which will offer house-hunters in the Vale of White Horse high quality affordable homes that are very much in demand in the local area. Through Shared Ownership, these new homes will help first-time buyers, growing families and downsizers alike an opportunity to own a home of their own in this desirable location.”
