Brand new figures from Strutt and Parker have found that over half of people in Britain would like to buy a new home by the coast, with 43% of respondents believing that waterside living makes people happier, and is better for their mental wellbeing. For those looking for an improved quality of life with a little help from a waterfront home, Inland Homes’ latest development, Chapel Riverside, overlooks Southampton’s River Itchen, and launches its third phase on the 14th, 15th and 16th June.
Phase 3 at Chapel Riverside is a luxury collection of 132 one, two- and three-bedroom apartments, in a prominent location on the west bank of the charming River Itchen. With penthouse apartments boasting views as far as Southampton’s Marina and prestigious Ocean Village marina complex, many of the lower-level apartments will also benefit from stunning waterside views with balconies overlooking the river.
Vicki Noon, Sales and Marketing Director at Inland Homes, comments: “Following the huge success of our previous phases, we are delighted to be launching the third phase at Chapel Riverside, providing beautiful waterside apartments for a variety of purchasers. Living by water promotes a wonderful sense of tranquillity so there is a uniquely calm ambience at this development. We’re very supportive of first-time buyers and with Help to Buy available on a number of plots, a home with a waterside location could be achievable with just a 5% deposit.”
