The first tranche of homes to be released at a new-build scheme in Ebbsfleet Garden City were snapped up within just hours of being launched.

On Sunday (19th March) eager house hunters rushed to secure all 15 shared ownership units at the Castle View development, by Latimer.  Buyers will move into the homes, which are a mix of two and three-bedroom properties, from the summer.

Buildings with residential, business, retail, leisure and community uses will be built on the site, creating of 10,000 homes and 20,000 jobs. The area’s natural beauty will also be enhanced with newly created open spaces and parklands.

The development also boasts quick connections to central London and Paris via Ebbsfleet International – trains to St Pancras take 17 minutes and Stratford International only 11 minutes.

Tim Seward, Director of Latimer, said: “We were absolutely thrilled with the response to our Castle Hill launch.  Ebbsfleet Garden City has that magic combination of offering value for money and first class transport links, which is always appealing to buyers.”

Early next year, Latimer will release the next phase of homes at development, which will be one and two-bedroom homes. Over the next five years a total of 300 shared ownership units will be available at Castle Hill through Latimer.
