Local lads Alex and Tom Thornton have both succeeded in taking their first steps on the West Cornwall property ladder, thanks to Ocean Housing.
Tom, who has just completed on his shared ownership purchase, is one of 20 delighted families moving into their new home through rent and shared ownership at Tolver Close, Hayle.
“It feels great to finally have my own place in the area I grew up. After my brother Alex bought I have been waiting for the right opportunity in St Erth Parish, and it was only natural that I would go through Ocean Housing seeing how easy they made the process for my brother”.
“We bought our house in Connor Downs over 4 years ago and it has enabled us to buy our home outright, we couldn’t have done this if it wasn’t for Ocean and shared ownership”.
Tom was already making plans to celebrate the family occasion when we spoke. The deal also represented a milestone for St Austell-based housing provider and construction company, Ocean Housing Group, as Nicola Mitchell, Sales Co-ordinator for Ocean Housing, explains:
“I have had the pleasure of handing over the keys to both brothers, with Alex being my first ever sale to complete for Ocean! Seeing them both so happy with their new homes has been a real pleasure, and Alex updating me that he has now been able to buy the full 100% of his home was just brilliant news!”
Ocean Housing manages 370 homes in West Cornwall, with developments underway in Bodmin and South East Cornwall due for completion this year.
