Aspiring homeowners can secure their first home with ease thanks to a Government-backed scheme available at Taylor Wimpey's Cedar Walk development of new homes in Leicester.

Taylor Wimpey is offering would-be first-time buyers a leg up on to the property ladder at its stunning Cedar Walk development in Leicester.

Under the popular Government-backed FirstBuy initiative, selected properties for sale in Leicester can be purchased by qualifying first-time buyers for 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.

Stylish two-bedroom 'Hallam' apartments in Leicester be accessed under FirstBuy at Cedar Walk for an 80% price of £87,996 (full price £109,995), with a 5% deposit of just £5,500.

Carolyne Watkinson, Sales Manager at Taylor Wimpey Leicestershire, says: "Our great-value new homes for sale in Leicester are already proving popular with discerning buyers, so the availability of FirstBuy at this superbly-located development only adds to their fantastic appeal for first-time buyers.

"However, this amazing scheme is only available with a strictly limited number of two-bedroom apartments for sale in Leicester, so I would urge anyone interested in finding out more to contact us without delay - before someone else snaps up their favourite plot!"

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 individuals, couples or young families, the two-bedroom 'Hallam' apartments each feature a light and airy living/dining room, a fitted kitchen, two well-proportioned bedrooms, a bathroom and a handy storage closet off the internal entrance hallway. Outside, each property benefits from allocated parking.

Alternatively, there's a selection of one-bedroom apartments on sale now at Cedar Walk from only £99,995, while spacious three and four-bedroom townhouses are priced from £179,995, and magnificent four and five-bedroom detached properties are available from only £199,995 and £299,995 respectively.

All homes at the development are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with an integrated oven, hob and hood.

Nestled on the edge of Birstall village, Cedar Walk is an exclusive development of 108 new homes at Hallam Fields, just a stone's throw from beautiful countryside and village amenities. As the new community grows, it will benefit from a range of new facilities on the doorstep, including a new school, shops, offices and business units.

For commuters, the nearby A6 provides a quick link into Leicester city centre and Loughborough, while junction 21a of the M1 is just five miles from home.

A new park and ride bus service also operates close to Cedar Walk into the centre of Leicester, where a huge range of high street and independent stores can be found, alongside a wealth of cultural and leisure amenities.
