St James Square: A Desirable Waterfront Development

St James Square, an exciting new Portslade development of shared ownership apartments, has caught the attention of Brighton buyers looking to join this seaside community. With the development’s desirable waterfront location and private balconies, proving popular with home seekers, the impressive Manhattan apartments and 1 bedroom apartments are selling quickly, with only one of each type available.

Unique Living Spaces: The Magic of Manhattan Design

The Manhattan differs from a typical studio apartment; a sliding door separates the bedroom from the living area of the apartment creating a separate sanctuary for sleeping.  If you prefer a more open plan feel, then simply push back the door to create a bigger space.

High quality flooring is laid throughout the apartment, with light grey porcelain tiles to the bathroom and coastal oak laminate flooring throughout the remainder of the home. The kitchen features sleek handless white gloss units and a white glass splashback, and comes with integrated appliances, including an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and a washer dryer.

Pendant lights are fitted in the bedroom and downlighters throughout the rest of the home. Storage cupboards are located in the living area and the bedroom, serving dual purpose as a wardrobe space when needed. All Manhattans come with private balconies, perfect for taking in the view.

Vibrant Living in Portslade’s Revitalized St James Square

Situated in a once-industrial area, the reinvention of St James Square is part of a wider initiative to create a vibrant place to live, giving residents the choice of quiet tranquillity but with the cultural and creative hub of Brighton located just nine minutes away by train via a ten minute walk to Portslade railway station.

Venturing closer to home and just around the corner, residents can enjoy Portslade’s busy and eclectic shopping street with its multiple independent stores, large post office and several well-known convenience and beauty brands.

Minnie Dando, Head of Marketing and Communications at Hyde New Homes, said: “We always deliver high quality, and the Manhattan apartment design offers clever living space coupled with a superb location.” Minnie Added:

“With our shared ownership offering at St James Square, buyers can take that first, vital step towards home ownership. And with the added benefit of a 10% deposit, they can soon enjoy their desired lifestyle, and makeover their home to their own taste.”

She continued “Along with a mortgage, buyers will then pay a subsidised rent to Hyde New Homes on the remaining share. Further shares can be purchased in the future through a process known as staircasing, which allows homeowners to own up to 100% of their home at any time they wish.”
