From Monday, May 3 to Sunday, May 9, the public can view a choice of homes for people aged over 55 for reservation on a first-come, first-served basis. Places must be booked in advance for the event, which will have enhanced Covid-safe measures.

The purpose-built independent-living village off Wilton Road, Salisbury, built by Platinum Skies, has one, two and three-bedroom apartments, choice of two and three-bedroom detached and semi-detached restored Victorian cottages and new-build houses combining classic architecture with a modern, light-filled interior.

The Chapters village will have 51 apartments with balconies, parking, and an outside communal courtyard.

With underfloor heating throughout, easy-to-use kitchens and energy-saving appliances, bathrooms with automatic lighting and step-free showers, homeowners at Chapters can enjoy communal facilities including a bistro and bar area, lounges, activity room and treatment room. Pets are welcome and he accommodation has plenty of space for family and friends to stay and visit, according to the developers.

Prices are from £120,000 for an apartment and from £252,500 for a cottage or house, based on the buyer paying 50% of the property’s full market value. The homes 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.
