Louise Mills, Sales & Marketing Director for St. Arthur Homes comments:
“The news that Southampton is one of the most affordable places to buy a home is a great boost for prospective buyers at Chapel Riverside. Whilst London can be a draw for many first-time property hunters it can also be an unaffordable goal to reach. Southampton is a fantastic location; the city centre has plenty to offer with a dynamic mix of amenities and Chapel Riverside is perfectly placed to be able to take full advantage of it all. Not only has this particular location been ranked as one of the most affordable in England, but with the added availability of the Shared Ownership scheme makes this an opportunity not to be missed. Prospective purchasers can still book an appointment to view our fabulous two-bedroom show apartment and come and see the development and location for themselves.”
