A collection of two-bedroom new homes at Whitsbury Green, Fordingbridge is being offered at a substantial 30% discount against their market value through the government’s First Homes initiative in partnership with New Forest District Council. Homes will be prioritised to ‘key workers’ and local first-time buyers, and are available to purchase from £245,000, including the substantial 30% discount. 


As a family-run business, Pennyfarthing believes everyone should have the opportunity to own their own home.

“We understand that taking that initial step onto the property ladder can be a big one, especially as a first-time buyer or key worker,” commented Sheetal Smith, Pennyfarthing Homes, Sales and Marketing Director.  She went on to say:

“We are proud to be the first housebuilder to launch First Homes in partnership with the New Forest District Council at our development in Fordingbridge.  The homes at Whitsbury Green will offer our first-time buyers and key workers a much-needed route on their journey to homeownership.”

“The selection of thoughtfully designed two-bedroom homes offer prospective families with young children that extra bedroom, or for home workers much-needed space to close the door at the end of the day.”
