Sam Dennett (21) is settling into a spacious new home at one of the area's most sought-after developments - thanks to a special first time buyer scheme through David Wilson Homes.

Keen to enter the property market for the first time, Sam and fiancé Samantha Pullen set about looking at all new-build developments in the area. And a visit to Kings Down in the bustling town of Bridgwater was enough to persuade them to end their search.

"We really wanted to buy a new home - and did plenty of research to make sure we found the right one for us," said Sam. "Kings Down is a fantastic new development - but it was the two and a half storey Greenwood house design that really made up our minds to buy here."

The Greenwood is a three double bedroom home with an open-plan combined kitchen, dining room and family area on the ground floor with an impressive glass walk in bay with French doors leading to the garden. Downstairs also offers a study.

On the first floor, there is a well-proportioned lounge and the master bedroom - with an en suite shower room. The second floor features two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

"This house offered superb value-for-money and it was a no-brainer to buy it," said Sam. "We thought it might be a bit of a financial challenge to try and get our feet onto the property ladder. But we needn't have worried about that.

"David Wilson Homes offers shared equity schemes to first time buyers - and the sales team did everything possible to make sure our purchase was as easy and straightforward as possible. We felt that they were genuinely interested in our requirements - not just what they were keen to sell."

"And now we're in, we can sit back and enjoy our new home - and of course the fantastic surroundings here at Kings Down," added Sam.

Located in Bridgwater, the development offers an impressive selection of two, three and four bedroom homes. It is close to the Polden Hills but within touching distance of local towns and cities.

Kings Down is within easy reach of schools, shops and other local amenities and is also near to Bath and Bristol.

Current availability includes the three bedroom Oakfield and Greenwood homes priced from £169,950 and £179,950. The four bedroom Irving, Hatfield, Shenton and Cornell house-types are also available, priced at £209,950, £224,950, £224,950 and £239,950 respectively.
