First-time buyers can secure a brand new property in Northamptonshire with the FirstBuy scheme at Taylor Wimpey's South Wood development in Little Stanion.
Taylor Wimpey is offering aspiring first-time buyers a leg up on to the property ladder at its South Wood development in Northamptonshire.
Under the popular Government-backed FirstBuy initiative, selected Northamptonshire properties can be purchased by qualifying first-time buyers for 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.
The spacious three-bedroom Plot 123 'Ashford' end-terraced property for sale in Northamptonshire is one of the plots which can be accessed under FirstBuy at South Wood for an 80% price of only £103,996 (full price £129,995), with a 5% deposit of just £6,500.
Janet Robinson, Regional Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey, says: "This is a great opportunity for first-time buyers to snap up a superb three-bedroom house in Northamptonshire - and much sooner than they might have otherwise thought possible.
"The availability of FirstBuy at South Wood adds to the fantastic appeal of these great-value homes in Northamptonshire. However, it's only available on a strictly limited number of plots, so I'd advise anyone hoping to take advantage of this amazing scheme to get in quick."
FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency and Taylor Wimpey, which is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.
Ideal for couples or young families, the stylish Plot 123 'Ashford' features a contemporary fitted kitchen, a spacious lounge/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the landing leads to three well-proportioned bedrooms and a main bathroom, while a garage and additional driveway parking are located outside.
Alternatively, four-bedroom homes are priced from only £164,995 and five-bedroom properties from just £245,995.
All homes at the development are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
South Wood truly enjoys the best of both worlds, with beautiful countryside on the doorstep and a choice of nearby towns providing everything for daily life.
The charming collection of homes lies in the popular new village of Little Stanion, a growing community that blends modern living with traditional neighbourhood values.
The new homes at South Wood benefit from woodland walks, cycleways and a village green on the doorstep, with shops and a primary school set to open soon. The development is also just three miles from Corby's great shopping and leisure facilities - and within easy reach of Kettering, Stamford, Oakham and Uppingham by road and Leicester, Northampton and London by road or rail.
First-time buyers can find out more about FirstBuy at South Wood by visiting the Sales Centre, located off Longcroft Road, Little Stanion, Northamptonshire, and open seven days a week from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
