Sought after Ogmore post code made affordable by luxury property developer

A luxury South Wales house builder has partnered up with a local housing association and Vale of Glamorgan Council to bring beautifully designed affordable homes and apartments to Ogmore-by-Sea and help the region’s residents make their first step onto the housing ladder.

Waterstone Homes has teamed up with Hafod Housing and the Vale of Glamorgan Council to provide high quality affordable homes for rent and low-cost sale at its new Tusker’s Point development.

The award-winning development includes eight stylish, affordable properties on the site in Ogmore-by-Sea, made up of a mixture of affordable rented housing and low-cost ownership homes, all of which have been built to complement the surrounding properties.

Consisting of two two-bedroom semi-detached homes for sale as well as six one-bedroom apartments available for affordable rent, the properties and all related sales and rental agreements will be managed by Hafod Housing in partnership with the local authority.

With a full market value of circa £260,000, the low-cost homes will sell for 70% of their open market cost, retailing at £182,000.

Alan Morgan, Managing Director of Hafod Housing, said: “We’re committed to providing high quality affordable homes for rent and sale for people throughout South Wales and work closely with local authorities and partner agencies to achieve this.

“Waterstone Homes has a strong reputation of developing superior built properties. We have worked closely with them on previous developments and know that they will deliver the very best accommodation possible for people in Ogmore-by-Sea who may need that extra little help onto the property ladder or assistance securing an affordable home to rent.”

Andrea Gardner, Sales & Marketing Director at Waterstone Homes, added: “It is important to us that every individual has access to high quality housing and the ability to live in a beautiful property suited to their needs, which is why we are proud to be working with Hafod Housing on this project.

“From their stunning appearance, to their high-quality finish, we have ensured that the properties in Ogmore have been built to an extremely high specification and benefit from the same beach-front location and stunning sea views as the executive homes on the development. For anyone looking for an affordable home on the coast, and, not to mention, in one of the most desirable coastal locations, the properties offer a fantastic opportunity to rent or get onto the property ladder.”

The properties have been designed to enable individuals wanting to live or reside in the area for family or work commitments, therefore, those from, or with a connection to, the Ogmore-by-Sea area will receive priority.

Prospective tenants for the rental accommodation will be selected on a nomination basis from the Vale of Glamorgan’s HOMES4U Common Housing register, with individuals already living in the local area receiving priority.

Those interested in buying will need to register with the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Aspire2Own scheme www.valeofglamorgan.gov.uk/en/living/Housing/Affordable-Housing/Aspire-to-Own.aspx Those with a local connection will receive priority.
