Taylor Wimpey and Dartford Borough Council's shared equity scheme lets first-time buyers secure selected new homes for 75% of the full price at The Bridge development of property for sale in Dartford.
First-time buyers in Kent are being urged to grab a fantastic opportunity to purchase a brand new home at Taylor Wimpey's The Bridge development of new homes in Dartford - without having to scrape together a hefty deposit.
The fantastic shared equity scheme lets qualifying first-time buyers secure selected one and two-bedroom flats for sale in Dartford for just 75% of the price tag at this ground-breaking community development at the heart of the Thames Gateway - that's from only £89,812* and £112,125* respectively!
Taylor Wimpey and Dartford Borough Council provide the remaining 25% of the purchase price, through a 25-year interest-free loan, allowing buyers to own 100% of their new Dartford property for 75% of the price.
The initiative is the perfect solution for first-time buyers in search of apartments to buy in Dartford, who would otherwise struggle to raise enough money for a deposit on their first home.
Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South East, says: "Our fabulous shared equity incentive at The Bridge makes it easy for first-time buyers to step onto the property ladder and make buying one of our stylish Dartford flats a reality!
"With this scheme the purchaser owns 100% of the property in Dartford from day one and is free to make payments during the 25-year period to suit their individual circumstances, repayable at the market value of the property when payments are made.
"However, property-seekers hoping to secure a brand new apartment using the shared equity scheme at The Bridge should act quickly as we expect this superb offer to be incredibly popular."
The gorgeous one-bedroom Plot 413 apartment, for example, is priced at £89,812* , and features a spacious kitchen/living/dining room, a good-sized bedroom and a main bathroom off the private entrance hallway.
Outside, this attractive new home enjoys access to a communal garden, while like all new homes at The Bridge it is completed to a high standard specification with central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
Part of the ongoing Thames Gateway regeneration, the development enjoys a peaceful position on the edge of Dartford and offers stunning views across the River Thames to the iconic QEII Bridge.
As well as offering sustainable living in a wide range of homes with unique contemporary architecture and gorgeous interiors, the community also benefits from a primary school which opened in September 2009, a nursery, youth centre, library and meeting rooms - all part of the Learning and Community Campus - plus shops, a hotel and 80 acres of public open space, parks and lakes.
The development is supported by excellent public transport, pedestrian and cycle links including a Fastrack bus service to Dartford, where zone 1 travel is free for residents of The Bridge, Bluewater shopping centre and railway stations at Dartford, Greenhithe, Gravesend and Ebbsfleet.
Ebbsfleet International has now begun frequent, 18-minute services to London St Pancras and is the UK's fastest route to mainland Europe - just 125 minutes to Paris, 101 minutes to Brussels and 70 minutes to Lille.
The Bridge Sales and Marketing Suite is located off Brunel Way, Via Bob Dunn Way, Dartford, and open daily from 10am to 5pm.
