Home prices vary depending on the size of the home and certain other design features. Prices for homes currently available will be provided on request together with a schedule of standard inclusions. As this is a new village, there are also a range of upgrade options offered if construction of your home is not yet completed.

Our contract form is a Long Term Lease so when you move in, you pay a lump sum in return for the right to occupy your home for up to 49 years and to access the village facilities. The underlying ownership is retained by the village owner and no stamp duty is payable.

In addition, you will pay a monthly service fee which covers the ongoing operational costs of the village. We guarantee that your service fees will never increase while you live at St John’s Rise.
