The Berries offers the sweetest mix of stunning homes, a quaint seaside town nearby, close to Devon’s picturesque “English Riviera”. The homes are equipped with all you need for contemporary living, while the development itself offers a play area onsite and plenty of open space.
Everything you need is at hand, with an array of supermarkets, great pubs and restaurants, cinema, gyms, schools and medical facilities… even a famous zoo! You can be in the town centre in minutes, Dartmoor in half an hour or Exeter or Plymouth in around an hour. There are also excellent rail connections to Torquay, Exmouth and London Paddington providing you with the perfect base to explore the South West.
Legal & General Affordable Homes is offering a unique opportunity to purchase a new home here through Shared Ownership. Thanks to this scheme, you can own your home with a lower deposit than is required to buy outright or with other buying schemes.

With a long sandy beach, local footpaths, bustling seafront, colourful pier and Victorian grandeur, Paignton is the perfect town in South Devon to celebrate the great outdoors.
Whether you’re paddle boarding, playing a round of golf next to the sea or exploring the nature and wildlife of the Dart Valley, there is lots to enjoy. One weekend you might be hiking the rugged granite terrain of Dartmoor, the next heading for a gourmet dinner at one of the restaurants of Padstow… you’ll never be bored!
Paignton has not one but two rail stations, including a scenic steam train in season, as well as a bus station with local services and coaches to destinations across Devon, Somerset and Cornwall. There are also excellent road connections from The Berries too.
From Exeter, the M5 will take you up to Bristol and the national motorway network, or head in the other direction along the A38 towards Bodmin and the Cornish coast. When you’re heading further afield, take the ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff in France and Bilbao in Spain or head to Bristol for international flights to destinations across Europe.
When looking for your new home, it’s important to understand what you can afford. To help get an idea of the estimated affordability for a home on this development, you can apply the 40% net income approach. In simple terms, this means that a household should not spend more than 40% of their household income to pay for their mortgage, rent and service charge.
As a rough estimate, the graphics above suggests the household income required to purchase; however, people with a lower income may be able to secure a property if they have a larger deposit. (i.e. if you have a larger deposit saved, where you have higher savings, your household income can be lower than the figure quoted above).
Shared Ownership is a government-backed scheme which allows first-time buyers – or those who do not currently own a property – the opportunity to purchase a home at a more affordable price.
The Shared Ownership scheme is simple – you buy an initial share of between 40% and 75% of the homes full value and pay a subsidised rent on the remainder.
You may purchase further shares (up to 100%) as your circumstances change, should you choose to.
