Superior design

Mount Oswald combines traditional design and modern conveniences to create some truly unique homes. 

They beautifully replicate the best of Victorian architecture, with sash-effect and dormer windows plus delicate porches offering an elegant welcome to these extraordinary properties. 

Each of the 11 home designs is finished with brick or render and exquisite art stone detailing around windows.  

The interiors are equally spectacular. Contemporary kitchens feature six-burner hobs and top-quality integrated appliances, while the free-flowing living spaces are filled with natural light. Zoned controls also allow homes to be heated more efficiently.

The buying process

Buying a home follows a set process. Here’s a quick overview, but don’t worry if it seems complicated – our team will be happy to answer any questions you have.

View our detailed guide for more information on the process

Find a solicitor

You’ll need a solicitor that specialises in conveyance to look after all the paperwork. We can put you in touch with one if needs be.

Arrange your mortgage

There are plenty of options to consider when it comes to a mortgage. Once you’ve done your research (or spoken to a mortgage adviser – again, we can put you in touch if you like), you should seek an agreement in principle.

Get a valuation and survey

Your mortgage lender will want confirmation the home is worth what you’re paying for it. They’ll organise the valuation for you – this will involve a fee.

Complete legal work

Your solicitor will look after this for you. It’s all about formally transferring ownership from us to you, and checking there are no legal obstacles in the way.

Exchange contracts

Once the legal work is complete, your solicitor will exchange contracts with us. This is when you pay your deposit and commit to the deal taking place.

Complete and move in

On the date of completion, you become the legal owner of your new home. Collect the keys and make yourself comfy!
