A NEW estate of shared ownership homes in South Oxfordshire has come on the market.

The 19 homes in Benson near Wallingford are aimed at first-time buyers.

In the shared-ownership scheme, house-hunters can buy a 40 per cent share in a mid-terrace two-bedroom home for £128,000.

The purchasers pay a mortgage on their share and pay rent to the developer, Catalyst, on the remaining share.

Because the mortgage on the share is often smaller than it would be on a similar-size house, the deposit required for such a mortgage is often lower.

Hopefield Grange has a mixture of two-bed and three-bedroom homes.

Each home comes with a 'contemporary' kitchen with a single oven, four burner gas hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine/ dryer.

Bathrooms are fitted with 'modern white sanitary ware'.
