New £4.8m over 55s development opens in Nettleham

This story is over

A £4.8 million development in Nettleham designed exclusively for over 55s is now ready for people to move in.

The Burrows, off Deepdale Lane, is made up of 22 two-bedroom apartments for rent and 14 two-bedroom bungalows for shared ownership.

Two bedroom bungalows are on the market at shared ownership for £145,125.

It’s the last in a trio of LACE Housing developments from the past year and has been named by children from the village’s schools.

The access road – Frith Close – was named by Nettleham Parish Council in recognition of the service of Councillor Alf Frith within the village.

Residents at The Burrows can benefit from a fully furnished communal area, including this snug.

Like Brighton Place in Washingborough and Wellington View in Ingham, the new homes in Nettleham are designed for those locals who are over 55.

Nick Chambers, Chief Executive of LACE Housing, said: “By officially opening The Burrows, we have reached a significant milestone in our mission to meet the demand for homes that are both affordable and suitable for Lincolnshire’s ageing population.”

“We are now exploring further development opportunities in other areas of the county and are excited to see what the future holds.”

The 22 self-contained apartments at The Burrows include fully fitted kitchens.

The 22 self-contained apartments at The Burrows include en suite bathrooms with level access and grab rails.

Managing Director of Lindum Construction Simon Gregory said: We’re delighted to see that the final name of the scheme was chosen by local school children.

“The Burrows will stand as their legacy in the village in which they grew up.”

It has been part-funded by Homes England through its Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes Programme, which aims to increase the supply of a wide range of housing options for older people in England by March 2022.
