Local housebuilder Crest Nicholson has launched Smart Own, its new Shared Ownership scheme in Kegworth. The scheme, which is now available at its Kegworth Gate development, is designed to help people onto the housing ladder and delivered in partnership with Legal & General Affordable Homes.

The Smart Own Shared Ownership Scheme is available on several homes at the popular Kegworth development, including the three-bedroom Evesham housetype. Part of the quiet village community in Kegworth, the development offers three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, making it the ideal location for first-time buyers and second-steppers looking for additional space, in a rural countryside setting.

The scheme will be available to eligible buyers with a household income of less than £80,000, and whose income covers the monthly costs. They can purchase up to 75% of the property, and pay a subsided rent on the remaining share.

Vanessa MacNee, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Midlands, said: “As housebuilders, we help thousands of customers across the Midlands realise their house buying dreams each year and understand that there is an increasing number of people who are unable to get onto or move up on the property ladder. We’re excited to be able to help more people in Kegworth access high quality, energy efficient new homes through our partnership with Legal & General Affordable Homes, and encourage anyone who is interested to get in touch with our friendly Sales team for more information.”

The Smart Own Shared Ownership Scheme is the next step in a range of initiatives provided by the local housebuilder to help buyers in Kegworth move onto or up the property ladder. Residents at Kegworth Gate will enjoy a range of amenities within walking distance, including convenience stores, a bakery, pharmacy, hairdressers, doctor’s surgery and a range of popular pubs and restaurants to dine in. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, there is plenty of open green space and walking routes, particularly alongside the picturesque River Soar.

Full prices at Kegworth Gate start from £225,000 for a three-bedroom home, £355,000 for a four-bedroom home and £470,000 for five-bedroom homes.  For more information about the scheme, development, or to book a viewing, call 01509 860 077 or visit
