The hugely successful regeneration of the Princess Marina Hospital site in Northampton is reaching its conclusion as the last few houses have been released for sale.
Persimmon Homes Midlands has just five properties available at the development on Balmoral Close, Dustan.
Sales manager Janet Robinson said: “Marina Gardens was launched in September 2013 and, over the past four years, more than 500 new homes have been occupied.
“We knew when we started out that this would be a popular site, as the local community had been very positive about our plans to transform this former hospital site into much-needed new homes. But even we were surprised at just how quickly the properties were snapped up.
“Four years on, and the development has matured into a lovely neighbourhood.
“The plans for the site included large areas of public open space and play areas for use by the new homes and the existing local population, and we also contributed more than £4.9million to Northampton Borough Council to support infrastructure and services in the area, so it has been good to see how the wider community benefits from our development.”
Included within the 550 homes created at the site were 193 plot provided as affordable housing, with 12 of these delivered as ‘keyworker’ homes for local NHS staff.
The final properties available are four and five bedroom homes in a number of different designs, priced from £239,950.
Janet added: “Buyers at Marina Gardens can access the Government-backed Help to Buy initiative, meaning they only need a five per cent deposit to secure their dream home.
“Those with an existing property to sell can ask us about our Home Change and Part Exchange schemes, which can significantly reduce the time and money spent in a chain.
