Over the last 44 weeks E G Carter & Co Ltd has worked in partnership with Sovereign Housing Association to build 9 new homes in Thatcham.

The new development called Crown Court is located in the centre of Thatcham and required the demolition and asbestos strip of an existing sheltered housing development which was no longer in use.

The 9 new homes were constructed using timber frame in order to maximise thermal efficiency and clad in brickwork to match the local vernacular.

In order to make these homes more affordable Sovereign Housing Association has made all of the new properties shared ownership, they said, “These quality properties are truly affordable, thanks to shared ownership, a simple and manageable way to own your own home. Buy an initial share in your home and pay a discounted rent on the rest. Then, as your finances allow, you can purchase further shares in your home as and when you choose, until you own it outright.”

E G Carter & Co Ltd received excellent feedback for the quality and design of the units from the home owners who are also benefiting from the many energy efficient features built into their homes. New residents Mr and Mrs Hayes were thrilled with their new home and explained, “This is our first home and we absolutely love it! It’s airy, light and spacious, a really great design with lots of storage.”
