Shared ownership apartments at Lakeshore
If you are in a position to purchase now, you could buy your home through Shared ownership, a government backed initiative funded by the HCA, to help you get your foot on the housing ladder. It allows you to purchase an affordable share in your own home, ranging from 25% - 75%, with the option to buy additional shares in the future taking you into 100% outright ownership.
To apply for a shared ownership apartment, you must be full time permanent employment with a joint income of less than £80,000 a year and not own another property. If you are self-employed, you will need a minimum of 2 years' worth of accounts/tax returns.
The full price of the apartment is £160,000 and following a viewing we would complete an 'affordability calculator' which determines the percentage of the apartment you could purchase (only takes a few minutes). It is possible to increase your share to 100% in the future.
At Lakeshore you can live an urban lifestyle on the doorstep of the countryside. Thoroughly modern apartments sat on top of a man-made lake in 10 acres of outstanding landscape. There's no doubt that Lakeshore is extra-ordinary.
Lakeshore looks to the past and points to the future. A 1970s architectural gem, it's monumental yet it's intimate; it's urban at the same time it's rural - we like that contradiction.
Lakeshore has history. Commissioned in 1970 by Imperial Tobacco whose empire included Bristol tobacco giants WD & HO Wills, designed by legendary Chicago architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, inspired by the grandfather of the modern movement Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, Lakeshore was nothing short of groundbreaking.
Fast forward to 2011, two decades after the building was abandoned, and Urban Splash has re-made and re-modeled this powerful 1970s icon into a special place that we hope people will choose to call 'home'.
The landscape at Lakeshore is a delight. If the architecture wasn't enough to grab you then the landscape certainly will. We've created a route for running to keep you fit and healthy, and areas for you to laze and loaf and soak up the sun. Add in the lake, the gym, the landscape, the orchards, and it all adds up to something quite special.

Close enough to be in the hustle and bustle of the city, far enough away to be tranquil, pastoral and calm, Lakeshore means you can decide. 15 minutes to Bristol Temple Meads, 18 minutes to Bristol Airport, an hour and a half from London.
Bristol has always been a 'happening' city. Defined as much by its music culture as its maritime history, its identity is fiercely independent.
The city's relationship with Bath, with London, with Wales and with Cornwall put it right at the heart of colliding cultures which give the city its colour, its flavour, that's rightly different from anywhere else.
Lakeshore is just over three miles by road from the city centre. It's actually shorter and quicker by bike because as the crow flies it's only two miles - provided you have some 'inside knowledge' and use the cycle path from your doorstep. There are two secure cycle stores onsite.
Bristol's Floating Harbour, Arnolfini, Portishead, Trip-Hop, Banksy, Brunel's beautiful bridge across the Avon Gorge - provocative history swimming alongside Cabot Circus.
A short distance north you're in the Cotswolds. East and you're in Bath, Stonehenge and London, south you're in Devon and Cornwall, and west you're in Wales. There aren't many more cities with so many cultures half an hour's drive from home.
