Developing genuinely affordable homes

Launceston, Cornwall

Stourscombe Vale, Launceston – 49 homes ranging from two and three bedroom terraced and semi-detached houses plus two bedroom coach house apartments.

A high quality development with first homes completed in April 2006 located on the south east outskirts of Launceston. The homes are part of an attractive open market housing development built by Redrow Homes. All the homes built for ahUK are of a similar design and style to the homes that were sold on the open market and are blended in to wider development and thus indistinguishable.

All the homes are located in quiet locations on the periphery of the Stourscombe Vale development and thus many of the homes benefit from a pleasant open countryside outlook at the rear or vista over grassed landscaped areas of the development reserved as public open space. All homes have the benefit of dedicated parking in private courtyard areas and in a limited number of cases the added bonus of a single garage.

Many of the residents at Stourscombe Vale are first time buyers and hail mainly from families living in the local community of Launceston. Thus many of the ahUK homeowners have established friendships with their neighbours and it is particularly good to note that many of the residents are enjoying their homes with young children and have started their new families since moving in.

Launceston is an historic market town on the Cornwall/Devon border offering good access to the Cornish coast and wider West Country. The town is famous for the castle which dates back to medieval times and dominates the landscape sitting proudly at the highest point. The adjacent town centre and square is most attractive being of a traditional historic nature and includes a good range of smaller shops including well-regarded local butchers, bakers and greengrocers. The town also benefits from facilities including several supermarkets and schools that can be conveniently visited by both car or on foot.

All ahUK homes are sold on a fixed shared equity basis. Applicants must be able to demonstrate suitable local connections and be unable to afford a property at the full open market value. To register interest in these homes, please click here
