A Government-backed incentive is making it easier for first-time buyers to achieve their dreams of home-ownership at Taylor Wimpey's Waterside Grange development of new homes for sale in Langley, Berkshire.
Speedy first-time buyers can get help to step on the property ladder with the FirstBuy scheme at Waterside Grange, Taylor Wimpey's sought-after development of properties in Langley.
This fantastic initiative lets qualifying purchasers secure new homes for only 80% of their full purchase price - including a deposit as low as 5% - and is available now with selected one and two-bedroom apartments for sale in Langley at Waterside Grange.
The spacious two-bedroom 'Hawker House' apartment at Plot 46 of the development of new homes in Langley, for example, can be purchased by one lucky buyer for 80% of its £205,000 full price - that's just £164,000, including a deposit of only £10,250, subject to status.
Alternatively, qualifying Langley property-seekers can secure the one-bedroom 'Milton House' apartment at Plot 69 for an 80% FirstBuy price of £140,000, including a deposit of just £8,750.
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.
Tim Betts, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Berkshire, says: "FirstBuy offers first-time buyers a unique opportunity to ditch renting and step on to the property ladder in style.
"We are experiencing considerable interest in this fantastic initiative and availability is strictly limited, so I would stress to anyone interested in taking advantage of the offer that they must be quick to avoid missing out."
Each stunning apartment at Waterside Grange features a light and airy kitchen/dining/living room, well-proportioned bedrooms, and a main bathroom, plus allocated parking outside. Selected plots benefit from en-suite shower rooms to master bedrooms and Juliet balconies to living areas.
Alternatively, there's a superb selection of three and four-bedroom houses available to purchase at Waterside Grange from only £325,000.
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.
The new homes at Waterside Grange are located off Middlegreen Road, Langley, within easy reach of day-to-day facilities.
Langley's charming historic buildings include St Mary's Church and the Kedermister Library, 17th century almshouses and the Red Lion Pub, while the village also boasts a host of everyday amenities including a post office, medical centre, leisure centre, library and places to eat out.
Families will appreciate that there are schools for children of all ages just a short distance away, with the opportunity of a grammar school education at Langley Grammar School, just over a mile from home, for those passing the entrance exam.
For commuters, junction 5 of the M4 is just two miles from the development while Langley railway station, which offers regular services to London Paddington in a little over half an hour, and also direct links to Reading and Oxford, is a short walk away.
