The innovative NewBuy* scheme – a Government led plan to make it easier for people to buy a new home – could well be the answer for prospective buyers at Linden Homes’ Splash development in Southampton.

Linden Homes has just launched the final release of smart new duplex apartments at their glamorous and contemporary waterside development at Ocean Village.

Prices for the apartments start at £199,000, each comes with gated, covered parking, and the NewBuy scheme could well offer the means to owning one of them. Mark Docherty, Sales and Marketing Director said: “NewBuy requires just a 5% deposit while securing a 95% fixed rate mortgage and applies to any new build home – house or apartment – as long as it costs less than £500,000.

“And it’s proving a big success: According to a recent Home Builders’ Federation report, the scheme - which helps to bridge the deposit gap - has attracted 400 new buyers since it was launched in March and is expected to attract tens of thousands other new buyers over the next three years.” Splash, which lies on the waterfront, is located just one mile from Southampton City centre and the exceptional West Quay shopping centre.

Amongst the properties in the final release is a selection of smart and contemporary duplex apartments: These two storey homes offer large, flexible living areas, a large master bedroom suite and gated, covered parking. Prices for a two bedroom duplex at Splash start at £199,000.

Ocean Village, which is made up of residences, bars, restaurants, cinemas, a yacht club and marina, is within easy reach of the M3 (to London and the West Country) the M27 (to the New Forest, east Hampshire and Sussex) and the A34 (to the Midlands).
