OO7 would certainly feel at home in one of Hyde’s brand new, stylish city apartments at Bond Central in Southampton.
Situated at the heart of Southampton, this development of 36 one and two bedroom apartments is located close to the city’s commercial hub, shopping and transport links. Each property is designed to maximise light and space and features contemporary fixtures and fittings including state of the art kitchen and bathroom, fitted wardrobes in the master suite - communal terraces and cycle parking for residents.
The homes are marketed by Hyde New Homes and are available through the Shared Ownership scheme from November 2012.
Debbie Small, Director, Hyde New Homes said: “This development gives first time buyers the opportunity to live in an attractive home in a vibrant and dynamic part of the city.”
Bond Central sits on a unique medieval site with a heritage that is reflected in the street names. This area was once home to a walled community and the ‘Old Bond Store’, the original bonded warehouse that was key to city’s global trade in days gone by.
Councillor Warwick Payne, Cabinet Member for Housing and Leisure at Southampton City Council, said: "I'm really excited that 36 affordable homes are being created right in the historic heart of our city.
"Not only is this development near the Old Bond Store and City Walls, but it's also a site that contains some personal history too. I was a regular visitor to the Nexus Club, which once stood on this site, and have some very happy memories of my evenings there.
"I was sad when the Nexus Club closed a few years ago, but delighted that it's being replaced by affordable homes, which are very welcome indeed.
"The council has a target to provide one affordable home every day, and thanks to Hyde Housing and the Homes and Communities Agency, this project is helping to meet that ambitious goal."
Prices for the one bedroom apartment start from £47,000 for a 40% share of a one bedroom apartment with the full market value of £117,500 and two bedroom apartment from £56,000 for a 40% share of a property with the full market value of £140,000.
