Shared Ownership is a type of affordable homeownership when a purchaser takes out a mortgage on a share of a property and pays rent to a landlord on the remaining share.
Please note: Eligibility criteria may vary per housing association and therefore you should always check the exact criteria with the developer or housing association responsible for the exploitation of the project.
We checked the information and the developer's representatives confirmed that units in this residential complex can be purchased by using a mortgage.
Tucked away from Fortescue Road in a leafy enclave, the new residential complex is nestled in the district of Colliers Wood, which belongs to the London Borough of Merton. Placed on the outskirts of the city, Fortescue Gardens finds a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the megalopolis in a quiet neighbourhood with several malls and supermarkets within strolling distance.
Although Colliers Wood has been discovered by big high-street retailers and supermarkets, the local community also offers numerous authentic shops and cafes. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the peaceful area attracted a number of influential designers, who played a major role in the Arts and Crafts movement. Their presence and legacy have left a footprint in the district and made Colliers Wood more appealing for creative youth.
The area of Colliers Wood is richly endowed with an abundance of parks, natural reserves, and lush green hideaways. Just within a 6-minute walk, Colliers Wood Recreation Ground offers charming gardens, a playground, a paddling pool, tennis courts, a football pitch, and a play centre.
Fortescue Gardens is placed within a number of transport options to get around the city. Eight minutes away, the Colliers Wood subway station links the neighbourhood to the City and beyond. In addition, the area is served by the Tooting railway station with the route running through City Thameslink. Also, the A24 road brushes by the neighbourhood and leads to Elephant and Castle, a major road junction in central London.
Hidden from the busy Fortescue Road in a secluded pocket, the new complex is stretched along Breakspear Gardens. The four mid-rise buildings are surrounded by lush greenery and charming footpaths. Giving off a warm village-like feeling, the façade is laid with bleached brickwork that features wide floor-to-ceiling windows and stacked balconies, some of which come with glass balustrades, while others demonstrate dark metal railings. The series of asymmetrical pitched roofs create a unique silhouette and add a flair of modernity to the exterior.
The area surrounding the buildings of Fortescue Gardens is beautifully landscaped to match the lush green neighbourhood, including lovely gardens to stroll around. As to vehicle facilities, the complex provides car parking spaces, electric car charging points, and secure basement cycle storage.
To grant residents peace of mind, each apartment comes with an audio/visual door entry system that helps monitor your visitors. Also, to prevent fire incidents, all units are equipped with smoke alarms and heat detectors. Moreover, the carbon monoxide sensors installed in the apartments will alert you in case of a gas leak.
Fortescue Gardens is comprised of 63 units, including studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Each home is designed with meticulous attention to detail, high-quality materials, and sophisticated fittings.
The contemporary kitchens feature white gloss cupboards and a copper slate worktop that adds a bit of contrast to the light-coloured interior. The Novilon patchwood flooring blends perfectly into the cooking area. For maximum convenience, each kitchen is equipped with Zanussi integrated appliances that include a fridge/freezer, a 4-burner gas hob, a cooker hood, an oven, and a washer-dryer.
The bathrooms include a white Saniform Plus bathtub, a Concept back-to-wall WC, and a full-width mirror over the sink that visually enlarges the room. The floor is laid with charcoal grey tiles, while the walls are covered with white Londra units.
