The FirstBuy scheme is available now at Taylor Wimpey's Heritage Park development - offering first-time buyers the chance to secure a new property in Bedford with ease.

First-time buyers can secure a brand new family-size home with just a 5% deposit and then enjoy low monthly mortgage payments at Taylor Wimpey's Heritage Park development of new homes for sale in Bedford.

Selected properties in Bedford at Heritage Park are available under the FirstBuy scheme, meaning they can be accessed by qualifying purchasers for just 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.

The spacious four-bedroom 'Easton' property is one of the houses in Bedford which can be accessed under FirstBuy at Heritage Park for an 80% price of only £192,000 (full price £240,000), including a 5% deposit of just £12,000.

This amazing money-saving initiative gives first-time buyers a unique opportunity to leave renting behind and step on the Bedford property ladder for less, with monthly mortgage repayments of as little as £894.99!*

Steve Rolt, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Bedfordshire, says: "The FirstBuy scheme coupled with the prospect of affordable mortgage repayments make a fantastic incentive for first-time buyers considering stepping on the property ladder.

"The availability of FirstBuy with the four-bedroom 'Easton' is a rare opportunity for first-time buyers with growing families to secure one of our new homes in Bedford for less.

"Prospective homeowners should visit our Sales Centre as soon as possible to find out more about how they could benefit from buying their first home at Heritage Park with FirstBuy."

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.

The 'Easton' features a spacious lounge/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a breakfast kitchen and handy guest cloakroom located off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to three bedrooms and a main bathroom, while an en-suite master bedroom enjoys appealing seclusion on the top floor. Outside, the property benefits from a car port.

Heritage Park is part of Lakeview, the first of four villages that will make up the self-contained, sustainable town of Wixams, three miles south-west of Bedford.

Designs for the new community draw on the best traditions of Bedfordshire's market towns and homes will benefit from new shops, community and leisure facilities, schools and employment areas, in addition to 300 acres of sports pitches, parklands and green open space. Each of the four villages will have its own centre, play and landscaped areas, and each will be within easy reach of Wixams town centre.

A new transport network puts bus stops within comfortable walking distance of the homes, a new railway station will provide quick links to London and nearby towns and cities, and an extensive network of cycleways and paths will make getting around a breeze.

Beyond the town boundaries, the re-aligned A6 and the A421 Bedford southern bypass put the region's major commuter routes, including the M1 and A1, within easy reach, while those travelling further afield will appreciate that Luton Airport is just 15 miles away.

First-time buyers can find out more about securing a new home with FirstBuy at Heritage Park by visiting the Sales Centre located at 1 Brooklands Avenue, off Bedford Road, Wixams, and open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm (1pm to 5pm on Mondays).
