The Grove is a stunning collection of two and three-bedroom apartments available through Shared Ownership. Only moments away from East Croydon station with three rooftop terraces offering stunning views across South London, contemporary specification, and light, spacious living space.
Designed with contemporary living in mind, residents can make use of any of the three landscaped gardens, each designed in a distinctive style to suit any mood or occasion.
Croydon is now home to a burgeoning tech and creativity hub. The borough is in the midst of a multi-billion pound investment programme that is set to transform the area, placing Croydon at the forefront of innovation yet again. Croydon is now home to over 2,000 digital, data and tech companies, employing around 8,000 staff. Subsequently, this has created a real buzz in the borough with independent cafés and workspaces opening, a bustling restaurant quarter to enjoy, two music festivals and a weekly comedy club – plenty to keep you busy.
Croydon is a major transport hub, and living at the The Grove puts you at the heart of it, with just a two minute walk to East Croydon Station. The site benefits from excellent train links to London Victoria and London Bridge, as well as south to Gatwick Airport and Brighton. Tramlink services go west to Wimbledon and east to Beckenham and Addington. Cycling around Croydon is one of the most enjoyable ways to explore your new area. There are routes for people of all abilities and with the council investing over £300,000 in the streetscape, it is only set to get better.
The Shared Ownership scheme is a Part Buy, Part Rent way of owning your own home for a smaller up front payment. With Shared Ownership, you buy a share of your home using a mortgage from a bank or building society and pay a subsidised rent on the share you did not purchase. The combined mortgage and rent is usually less than you’d expect to pay if you bought a similar property outright.
At The Grove you can buy a minimum 25% share of your home (the maximum you can buy initially is 75%). When you’re ready, you can buy more shares until you staircase to owning 100% of your home.
To be eligible for this shared ownership scheme you would need to meet the following criteria:
• Your annual household income does not exceed £90,000
• You have a deposit of at least 5% of the share value
• You do not own another property or have your name on the deeds or a mortgage for a property worldwide.
• This will be your only residence.
• You are a permanent UK resident or have indefinite right to remain.
Please note the minimum share you can purchase can vary depending on your financial situation and you may be asked to purchase a larger share, should your personal circumstances permit.
