Housing for the ‘downsizer generation’ launched by Hanover - New Forest show home open for viewings

15 May 2015

Lyndhurst CGI Low

With the new Government now in place, the supply of new homes remains one of the thorniest dilemmas it faces. Now, Hanover has launched a solution aimed to add choice to the housing market.

Downsizer Homes by Hanover is the first product aimed specifically at the booming ‘downsizer generation’ – 1,000 new homes in the south-east of England for people aged 55 and over – offering a stylish property with top of the range fittings, combined with a lifestyle that suits the aspirations of a growing ‘younger-old’ population.

As a housing association with over 50 years’ experience of delivering quality, affordable housing for people over 55, Hanover is ideally positioned to introduce innovative housing models for this aspirational market – and boost the wider housing economy into the bargain.

The first new homes will be available in Lyndhurst in the New Forest and Egham in Surrey in the summer.

New Forest show home now open to view

In Lyndhurst, in the beautiful Hampshire New Forest, 26 elegant new apartments will be developed on an estate called The Boltons. The selection of one- and two-bedroom apartments at The Boltons are available from prices starting at £165,000 – offering high quality living at an affordable price, in one of the country’s most desired locations. Hanover is making 23 homes available for private sale, the remainder on affordable rent terms.

Each apartment features expansive open-plan living space flooded with natural daylight and generous rooms, while top-of-the-range appliances will provide high performance and energy efficiency for the lower living costs that downsizers demand.

A show home at The Boltons in Lyndhurst is now available to view. To make an appointment to view the show home, contact:
