about the development
Nestled amongst the foothills of the beautiful South Pennines is one of Persimmon Homes' most exciting projects to date - the sympathetic restoration and conversion of the old Birch Hill Hospital and Clock Tower into a range of stunning apartments and town houses.

Originally opened as a workhouse by the Mayor of Rochdale in 1877, the historic buildings and clock tower have been an iconic landmark in Rochdale ever since. Offering luxury living in a privileged setting, the scheme is set to become one of Rochdale's most exclusive and desirable addresses - creating a sought-after development of carefully converted mews homes and individually designed apartments.

Birch Hill Gardens also offers superb opportunities for those who love the great outdoors. With an abundance of countryside, woodland and lakes on the doorstep, there are plenty of options nearby for residents to explore.

Be sure to visit Watergrove Reservoir, perfect for walkers and dog owners, and the beautiful Hollingworth Lake area of Littleborough is easily accessible from the development. With stunning woodland to walk through and enjoy, the lake is a great place to visit and even hosts its very own sailing club, together with a range of watersports.

Close to commuter routes and not to be overlooked by its stunning surroundings, Rochdale town centre has much to offer with its rich heritage, including the original Co-op shop at the Pioneers' Museum. It's also easily accessible, with the striking new Transport Interchange and the Metrolink providing great public transport.

What is shared ownership?
Help To Buy Home Reach is a government backed shared ownership scheme that allows you to buy a share of it (between 50% and 75%), and then pay an affordable monthly rent on the remaining share.

It does not mean that you have to share your home with anyone!

The scheme operator will own the share of the house that you don't buy, and will rent that share back to you.

Over time, as and when you can afford to, you are able to increase your share in your home (this is known as stair casing), up to 100% ownership.

Who can buy A shared ownership home?
You could buy a Shared Ownership home in England if:

Your household earns £80,000 a year or less outside London, or your household earns £90,000 a year or less in London

You are a first-time buyer, you used to own a home but can't afford to buy one now or are an existing shared owner looking to move

being A shared owner
Providing you keep up your monthly payments, including any mortgage payments, you and any others in your household are entitled to live in the property as if you owned it outright.

As with any home ownership position where you have not bought the property outright in cash, your home and cash deposit may be at risk if you do not pay the amounts due under the lease and any mortgage.

Whilst shared ownership may allow you to buy the home you always wanted, if at some point in the future you needed to move, then you have 2 choices... Simply sell your share or sell the property outright on the open market.

As with any home purchase, the cash invested to buy your share may be at risk if property values fall.

With shared ownership you can climb on and move up the housing ladder, enjoying the usual security and control associated with home ownership and long leasehold property.
