Find your perfect home - Available from 50% share

Shared Ownership is a government backed part buy/part rent scheme designed to help you take that first step on the property ladder. At Lantern Crescent, you can purchase a share in a new home from 50% up to a maximum of 75% of the initial purchase price, subject to eligibility and qualifying conditions. You will be expected to purchase the maximum share you can afford and sustain in the long term via savings and a mortgage, and this will be dependent on your income and savings (for your deposit), and any financial commitments you may already have.

Advantages of Shared Ownership

*You only need a deposit for the share you are buying
*You can buy more shares as you can afford more
*More security of tenure.

To be considered eligible for one of these properties, all applicants must be approved for Shared Ownership by Help to Buy. An online application can be completed. You will also be required to have an affordability assessment carried out by a Mortgage Advisor.
About royston

Steeped in history dating back to the 12th century, Royston offers a rich heritage, which includes the Augustinian Priory, the medieval Royston Cave and the Roisia Stone, from whence the town gets its name.
On the doorstep

A traditional market town, Royston hosts regular markets twice a week on Market Hill in the heart of the town. Here you will also find a range of independent shops and businesses for everyday needs including a range of cafes and restaurants. Enjoy the green open spaces of the award winning Priory Memorial Gardens and the nearby Heath, with its woodland footpaths, the rare pasque flower and chalk tracks.
Things to do

Nearby, Wimpole Estate offers acres of parkland to explore, abundant with wildlife, trails and tracks for cycling. Once you've walked and taken in the stunning views, treat yourself to something to eat in one of the three cafes available. If you prefer something more active, you can take part in the Wimpole Estate parkrun event every Saturday.

Explore the manmade Royston Caves which are cut into the chalk beneath the streets of Royston. The carvings in the cave have led to much speculation about the origin and function of the cave. Being unique in Europe, if not the world, the cave remains a mysterious and magical place, attracting visitors from around the world.
