Canterbury’s New Gem: Launching The Stour Collection at Riverside Square

An affordable property that’s close to nature but also perfectly positioned for enjoying the best of urban life feels like an increasingly unattainable dream in many areas. Yet in Canterbury, despite price rises of 5% in the past year, the apartments at The Stour Collection at Riverside Square deliver precisely that. Available through shared ownership and set alongside the River Stour in Canterbury’s new lifestyle quarter, just a few minutes walk into the centre of Canterbury, the homes provide easy access to all the delights of this historical city, from its thriving urban centre to its lush parks and waterside pursuits.

The Stour Collection, Launching on the 10th of February 2024, features one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments available through shared ownership. These contemporary homes sport sleek interiors and allocated parking, along with a bicycle shed for those who prefer eco-friendly forms of travel. Apartments are located over two blocks, Mallard House and Pipistrelle House. Built and finished to a high standard, the homes deliver carefully crafted interiors and the majority include private outdoor space.


Affordable Homeownership Thanks to Shared Ownership

Riverside Square’s Stour Collection enables buyers with a smaller deposit to step onto the property ladder thanks to shared ownership.

The average apartment in Canterbury sold for £206,918 according to Rightmove’s December 2023 data, meaning a buyer would need a 10% deposit equating to £20,691 – plus enough for all the fees associated with moving.

Shared ownership tackles that head-on, enabling buyers to purchase an affordable share in their home, with the option to buy additional shares over time, ‘staircasing’ their way to full ownership at any convenient time.

Using this approach, fortunate buyers at The Stour Collection will only need to save as little as £8,900 for a deposit.
