Opendoor Homes has recently completed 52 new homes at Hermitage Lane in Childs Hill; a landmark scheme delivering homes for affordable rent, market sale and shared ownership.

Working with development partners Hill, this is the first scheme where homes for market sale and shared ownership have been built by Opendoor Homes, as well as increasing our stock of affordable housing.

The freehold for the site will remain within the Barnet family, and the financial proceeds will be reinvested into providing more affordable accommodation and delivering housing-related services.

Opendoor Homes were instrumental in delivering the planning for the scheme, and getting it ‘on site’. These high quality and attractive homes will provide much-needed housing, particularly for affordable rent. Speaking at the launch of the new homes, Meera Bedi, Head of Development at The Barnet Group said, “We are delighted to have delivered this attractive scheme in a very popular part of Barnet.

“The scheme is made up of fourteen brand new flats that will be let at Barnet Affordable Rent. There is one flat suitable for a wheelchair user as well as well-designed communal landscaped gardens. There were a lot of shared boundaries on this site which we have significantly re-built and so helped to make the scheme more secure for both our residents and our neighbours.”

The market development has been branded as “The Artisan”, and you can find out more about shared ownership opportunities at
