Shape Land & Property in partnership with Onward homes has seen transformation of a formerly derelict site in Aigburth.
In March 2020, Onward Homes took delivery of 12 brand new high quality dwellings which further contributed to the housing aspirations for the Liverpool City Region.
The one and two-bedroom apartments on Buckland Street were available to buy through Onwards Shared Ownership Scheme and all units were reserved off-plan.
These contemporary apartments offered open-plan layouts, spacious and stylish living areas, fully-fitted kitchens and modern bathrooms – including some en-suites. They also benefit from private allocated parking.
Situated a short walk from St Michaels station, the apartments at Clifton Place are perfect for first-time buyers and commuters, with direct trains to Liverpool city centre and Southport.
Residents will also be able to enjoy a wealth of facilities on their doorstep, including Liverpool’s famous bohemian street, Lark Lane, and the magnificent 235-acre Sefton Park.
Prices started from £50,000 for a 40% share which offer buyers a desirable L17 postcode without the price tag.
Shared Ownership allows you to buy a percentage (between 25% and 75%) of your new home, and pay rent on the rest. Onward Living owns part of it — but you’re living there, you decorate it, and you decide when to sell.
Buying a percentage means a smaller deposit and smaller mortgage. It’s a sooner first step on the ladder for lots of people. Usually, you can also carry on buying shares, to own it 100%.
As well as delivering excellent homes, we aim to deliver additional benefits for those who live and work near our sites. Both the contractor and design team were employed within a 15 mile radius from the site whilst the contractors, Crossfield Construction also created several vacancies for local residents.
