Shared Ownership Wiltshire
There’s something to be said for country living: more space, swathes of greenery, serene walks, snug pubs. And in Wiltshire you have all of this, plus real character. Pitched in the west country and nudging the Cotswolds Hills, the county has an intriguing backstory with some of the UK’s most compelling historical sites. In Salisbury (a city that’s been named the best place to live in the UK, according to the Sunday Times), you’ll find an enthralling architectural landscape that runs through the ages, including the 800-year-old looming cathedral with Britain’s tallest spire. And in between, chocolate box villages, stately country piles and market towns that sit among the patchwork scenery.
Part-Buy Part-Rent Wiltshire
If you want to buy a property in one of the UK’s most intriguing counties, a brand-new home could be yours – even if you’re not earning mega bucks. With a handful of excellent properties for sale via the shared ownership route, Wiltshire is a veritable hunting ground for wannabe homeowners. Around a mile from Marlborough’s high street – a pretty town on the historic road from Bath to London – there’s Malberg Grange: an assortment of plush new houses that’ll sit beside an ecological wildlife area. On the outskirts of Salisbury, Longhedge Village is a large new community with a country feel. On completion, there will be walking and cycling routes, a new school and play park, and the design-conscious properties have been fitted with high ceilings, wide staircases, bifold doors leading to patios, island kitchens and plenty of built-in storage, plus parking spaces.
Transport-wise, Wiltshire is served by fast and regular rail services: journeys to London Paddington take around 55 minutes from Swindon and 70 minutes from Chippenham; those to London Waterloo from Salisbury take 90 mins and 103 minutes from Tisbury. There’s also a wider network with links down to Weymouth and Southampton and surrounding areas.
