Plumlife, the sales specialists at Great Places Housing Group, recently launched Brearley Forge, 12 two, three and four bedroomed homes built by Keepmoat in the Parson Cross area of Sheffield. These family houses are the first collection of shared ownership properties created by Sheffield Housing Company (SHC), a joint venture between Sheffield City Council, Keepmoat and Great Places. All semi-detached properties are specifically aimed at family buyers and include modern energy- saving systems and contemporary designs. The spacious layouts, consisting of bright kitchens, landscaped rear gardens, well-proportioned bedrooms and two off-road parking spaces, appeal to larger households. A tree-lined park backs the site, which is perfect for young children to play in. Homes were for sale through shared ownership and proved to be a great way for local first time buyers to step on to the property ladder in an established community. Demand was incredibly high and all properties were reserved within 12 weeks of the VIP launch.
