Eco-conscious homebuyers have been busy snapping up a selection of shared ownership apartments and houses at an exciting new Hove development.

Hyde New Homes’ Amberdown development has reported a huge surge in interest thanks to the green benefits that come with buying a home there, with buyers citing a number of advantages of choosing a home at the popular development on the south coast.

“I came across the Amberdown development from Hyde New Homes and I instantly knew this is a rare opportunity for us to find a home that has everything we’re looking for. The location is perfect for commuting as well as having nearby schools. The allocated parking is a huge added bonus.

“We also love the fitted solar panels that will help reducing the running cost and are also kind to the environment. Having our own garden is a welcome addition too, it completes the picture of the ideal home.”

All of the development’s 1 and 2 bedroom apartments have now been reserved, and the collection of stunning 3 bedroom mews houses are proving to be just as popular, available to reserve from £183,000 for a 30% share and with a deposit from just £9,150^.

With a location on the border of Hove’s ever-popular Poets Corner neighbourhood, and several eco-friendly benefits coming with each of Amberdown’s homes, it’s easy to see why.

Each of the houses come with PV solar panels as standard, as well as low heat loss glazing and low energy lighting, heating, hot water, and ventilation systems. The development itself is equipped with several electric car charging points, helping towards a cleaner environment for the future.

Hyde New Homes also proudly commits to a ‘fabric first approach’ in the construction of its homes, using sustainable and environmentally-friendly products and methods resulting in just a small level of heat being lost through the fabric of the property.

Minnie Dando, Head of Marketing and Communications at Hyde New Homes said: “At Hyde, we have set a target to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and improving the fabric of our buildings is high on our agenda. The initiatives introduced at Amberdown are helping us to work towards achieving this target.

“As the cost-of-living crisis continues to drive financial decisions, the benefits that come with these energy efficient features, have increasingly become a key selling point for environmentally and cost-savvy buyers.”

When purchasing an eco-friendly home, buyers will be able to make a large number of savings on their electricity bills by generating their own electricity. By using solar panels, those living in the property will be using less energy that is purchased from an external supplier, ultimately saving money and releasing less pollutants every day.

Minnie added: “Amberdown’s homes are also ideally located to enjoy local green spaces of the South Downs, as well as the beautiful beaches of the south coast. It also has excellent access to public transport as well as cycle routes, meaning homeowners can opt to leave the car home more often.”

Brighton, which was recently crowned the most eco-friendly city in the UK* is just a 10 minutes’ drive away. With a number of ‘green’ factors such as allotments, residents choosing to cycle and a high recycling rate, the city has an overall score of 6.79 out of 10 and has pipped Bristol and Newcastle to the top spot.
