April: Property of the month – Plot 88!
11th April, 2019
“Shropshire Homes has been fantastic throughout our first journey of buying a home.”
Lovely feedback from the delighted new owners of an apartment at the stunning St George’s Mansions in Stafford.
Sam and Liam capitalised on the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme to purchase their home at the landmark development, and other potential buyers are being urged to act quickly to secure one of the few remaining homes in the Grade II listed building.
Ideally suited to anyone looking to take the first step on the ladder, purchase their own trendy apartment, or downsize to an easy-to-maintain home, plot 88 at St George’s Mansions is a two-bedroom, second floor apartment.
High ceilings and sash windows ensure the open-plan living and dining space feel light and airy. Meanwhile, the chic, modern interior includes a hallway, master bedroom with en-suite and fitted wardrobes, bathroom and kitchen.
Offering extensive views to the front and rear of the building, the development is surrounded by open parkland and within walking distance of Stafford town centre with its shopping and entertainment areas. Allocated parking is also available with this property.
Happy new homeowners Sam and Liam cannot praise Shropshire Homes and the St George’s Mansions development highly enough.
“The staff at St George’s Mansions couldn’t have been more helpful. Angie and Lynn have been the backbone of our purchase updating us along the way with any changes or updates.
“We were fortunate enough to be purchasing through the Help to Buy government scheme. This was very beneficial and we were supported throughout with all the correct guidance and information. We can’t believe that in our early twenties we have purchased our very first home,” they added.
Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to get your hands on one of the remaining apartments in this former hospital asylum. Originally built in 1818 St Georges Mansions was the epitome of Victorian architecture and alongside various ancillary buildings housed more than 1,000 patients by the 1930s.
It closed in the mid-1950s and the buildings fell into disrepair. Two large-scale fires in recent years rendered much of the site un-recognisable, and a former chapel and refectory were destroyed. The large-scale renovation by Shropshire Homes has created 252 luxury apartments with just a handful of homes remaining.
Plot 88 is priced at £214,950, the Help to Buy price for those who qualify for the scheme is £171,960.
