We built 30 new homes on the sites of a former older people's housing scheme at Irving Close in Staple Hill and the former garages in nearby James Road. The homes are a mixture of one and two bedroom flats, two and three bedroom houses plus a number of one bedroom bungalows.
Location: Staple Hill
Number of new properties: 30
Start on site: May 2016
Completed: September 2017
Applications opened this morning for our all of the shared ownership properties at our Irving Close development in Staple Hill.
Six homes on the site are being sold through shared ownership, a mix of two and three bedroom homes. The two bedroom homes are available for £92,000 for a 40% share, while the three bedroom homes are available for £110,000 for a 40% share.
The six homes are part of 25 we're building on the site, which used to house one of our independent living schemes. Just six miles from the centre of Bristol the homes are a perfect base to explore both the city and the surrounding countryside. There's plenty of open space and a buzzing high street nearby offering a range of shops, bars and restaurants.
The homes are due to be finished later this summer and form part of our ongoing plans to increase our development programme. This year we're aiming to build 230 properties and these homes at Irving Close form part of this goal. Next year we'll be aiming to increase our homebuilding programme to 300.
