From The Norfolk Broads to Beaches

Living at the Ostlers, you will be well placed for a variety of routes across Norfolk and beyond. From nearby Salhouse Station there are regular trains to Norwich, Cromer and Sheringham. The Norwich service takes just 13 minutes and, from here, you can get to Ipswich in 40 minutes and London Liverpool Street in 1 hour 54 minutes. 

The village has good bus services too and you have an easy road connection right into the centre of Norwich. The A47 is easy to access, linking you with destinations throughout East Anglia, the M11 and national motorway network.  

Norwich also has an international airport, with flights to destinations across Europe. Yet, with the Norfolk Broads so close by, perhaps the perfect mode of travel is by boat, quietly cruising the waterways and looking for a glimpse of a water vole among the reeds. 

The Norfolk Broads National Park is just a short distance away. This rich tapestry of water, skyscapes and wildlife is the perfect place to spend a lazy summer’s day. East Anglia is a wonderful part of the country. There are heritage railways and royal palaces, magnificent views and ancient forests. You’ll have every type of seaside you could wish for – from the bright lights of Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile to the crab restaurants of Cromer and the quiet beaches in between where you can walk for miles and see more seals than humans.

Affordability guide

Estimate Household Income

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 45% net income approach. In simple terms, this means that a household should not spend more than 45% of their household income to pay for their mortgage, rent and service charge.

2 Bed House SOLD 3 Bed House SOLD

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).


How it works

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.

Affordability Guide graphic for Shared Ownership from Legal And General Affordable Homes based on a 5 percent deposit and a 40 percent share value.

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.
