It will contain 51 apartments with balconies, parking, and an outside communal courtyard. Nightingale Square Apartments Platinum Skies Salisbury has your future in mind The homes at Chapters are built to cater to the homeowner’s current and future needs including underfloor heating throughout, easy-to-use kitchens with energy-saving appliances, and bathrooms with automatic lighting and step-free showers. Homeowners at Chapters enjoy communal facilities including a bistro and bar area, homeowners’ lounges, activity room, and treatment room. Pets are welcome in all homes within Chapters, which also have plenty of space for family and friends to stay and visit. Mick Spooner moved to Chapters after his wife passed away, which led him to look for a smaller home within a welcoming, supportive community. He said: “Having been sad for so long, this place has made me so happy. I have a lovely one-bedroom apartment which I can keep together so easily. As for the homeowners, we all get on so well and the facilities are fantastic. My daughter lives a few miles away from Chapters, so I am not far away when she needs help with babysitting duties or to take the grandchildren to school.” Shared ownership at Platinum Skies Salisbury Prices at Chapters start from £120,000 for an apartment and £252,500 for a cottage or house, based on the buyer paying 50% of the property’s full market value. The homes at Chapters are made affordable as part of a government-backed shared ownership scheme delivered in partnership with Homes England. Commonly known as part-buy, part-rent, shared-ownership homes enable people to move and potentially downsize from their existing home which may no longer be suitable for their needs while freeing up money from the sale of the property to use on other life events. Chapters is overseen by Tracy Eggs, a dedicated onsite Community Manager, who organises fun activities to bring the homeowners together and gives practical and emotional support. Tracy said: “We have such a fantastic community at Chapters, which is testament to the hard work of the team and the friendly, welcoming nature of our homeowners. We’ve got some exciting plans in the coming weeks as the government guidance eases, which will enable our homeowners to continue to live happy, healthy, and active lives.” To reserve an appointment at the Chapters open week, call the team on 01202 040996.
