Cable Wharf is minutes from bustling Gravesend, with its ancient maritime heritage, historic buildings and brilliant commuter connections to the rest of Kent and the capital.
Finding the right home to settle, put down roots and call your own is one of the most exciting things that any of us can do. Cable Wharf provides the rare opportunity of a new home set amongst a dramatic ancient backdrop with a nautical vista, ever-changing regardless of the seasons, weather or time of day. No two days are the same when gazing across the dreamy reaches of the Lower Thames. Big ships, small boats and yachts all make their way in and out of a constantly changing seascape.
The Cable Wharf vision was conceived and created as a new forward-looking community, building upon the positive associations of an area rich with history and successful commercial enterprises, perfect for those seeking outdoor lifestyles. All of the new homes follow a contemporary design theme, featuring a range of house and apartment styles and layouts, providing lots of choice for your ideal new home. Many properties front the Thames riverside with large panoramic windows and balconies, perfect for watching marine life and nautical traffic.
Each new home at Cable Wharf is built to the highest construction standards by paying special attention to those distinctive design details which create homes as individual as you. The objective has been to create homes with a timeless quality, keeping them looking good for years to come. All of the new homes are built to minimise environmental impact, keeping running and maintenance costs economical and minimal, allowing you to focus on convenient day-to-day living and what’s really important to you!
From the moment that you step into a Love Living Homes property at Cable Wharf, you’ll notice the individual finishing touches that make it so special. With a fully equipped kitchen, flooring and built in appliances, you are provided with a blank canvas to make your new home just for you.
The perfect location for those that love the call of the sea, yet only 40 minutes from Central London.
Cable Wharf is located just to the west of Gravesend town centre and under a mile to the main railway station, with its high-speed connections to London, Southern Kent and the continent. Rich in architectural, cultural and natural diversity, Northfleet has been an attractive location to the earliest settlers from the Iron Age, Romans and European Traders through to the boom years of the mid-19th century and beyond. Set at the end of the North Downs, the area flourished as an ideal landing platform on the broader stages of the Thames to the open sea, perfect for those that love adventure and discovery.
The cost of housing has increased dramatically compared to wages over the last few years. This trend has been particularly marked in areas close to London and so has hit us in the South and South East. It has become increasingly difficult to take the first step and get on the housing ladder.
We are, therefore, really pleased to be working in association with partners who are able to offer the following scheme to enable you to own your own home.
If outright purchase is not an option for you, this scheme offers an alternative to renting. You can buy an initial share in a new home that you can afford, helping you into home ownership in manageable stages. Shared ownership is always leasehold.
The Housing Association or Registered Provider will offer initial shares of between 25% - 75% of the full purchase price. You pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share that the Housing Association or Registered Provider still own. The combined monthly cost of mortgage and rent will normally be less than if you were purchasing the property outright.
In the future you can simply sell your share for its value at the time or alternatively you can purchase further shares in your home.
With most properties you are eventually able to own the property outright if you wish to, although there are some restrictions on rural schemes. You are eligible for the scheme if your household earns £80,000 a year or less (or £90,000 a year or less in London) and any of the following apply:
you are a first-time buyer
you used to own a home, but can’t afford to buy one now
you are an existing shared owner
the criteria can vary but you need to be able to prove a connection to the local area. e.g. if you were born there, family are currently living there, you have lived there for 2-5 years or currently have permanent work there.
