All reserved at phase one of BoKlok on the Lake, Worthing

The first phase of homes at BoKlok on the Lake in Worthing are now all reserved. First-time buyers from the local area have been the main purchasers.

Since the homes were first released in the latter half of last year, the collection of one and two-bedroom apartments have enjoyed strong appeal. Nearly 70% of the homes were reserved, off-plan at the sales launch in November 2021, with the last few remaining homes reserved shortly after.

With a focus on local, first time buyers, it is always the aim for BoKlok to make homeownership more accessible to more people. In phase one at BoKlok on the Lake, 91% of purchasers were first time buyers, 91% were local to the area* and 75% accessed the government ‘Help to Buy’ scheme, to assist them in their purchase.

Graeme Culliton, Managing Director, BoKlok UK, said:

“The apartments at BoKlok on the Lake in Worthing offer an ideal opportunity for a local, first time buyer to secure themselves a spacious, highly specified new home in a conveniently located setting. Schemes such as ‘Help to Buy’ have proved pivotal, enabling a vast number of first-time buyers to take that all important first step onto the property ladder.

“It has been fantastic to see how many local buyers have chosen to make their home here. The feedback we have had about the internal layouts and the quality of finish have been really positive. The fact that all of the homes enjoy their own private balcony has also proved popular, while the provision of elements such as ample bike storage and electric car charging points have received much acclaim.”

Set alongside Somerset Lake in Worthing, the homes will be set around a ‘green heart’ landscape centrepiece, creating a parkland setting, which the whole community will be able to access and enjoy.

All of the homes are highly specified and enjoy spacious, open-plan living spaces, IKEA bathrooms and kitchens and integrated appliances. Each apartment has dedicated parking and electric car charging points are available throughout the development. A series of measures have also been introduced to help future homeowners reduce both their energy consumption and fuel bills, including air source heart pumps, enhanced insulation, Argon gas-filled double glazing and water-saving taps, showers, and toilets.

Future phases of BoKlok in Worthing will be released, but the date is not yet set. Those interested in securing a future home are encouraged to register their interest now to ensure they are one of the first to hear.
