Aspiring first-time buyers can get help from a superb scheme to purchase their first property at Taylor Wimpey's The Firs, Priors Green, development of new homes in Little Canfield, Essex.

First-time buyers have the chance to step on the property ladder with an affordable deposit thanks to FirstBuy at Taylor Wimpey's The Firs, Priors Green, development in Little Canfield.

The Government-backed incentive offers aspiring homeowners the opportunity to secure selected new homes for sale in Little Canfield for just 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit as low as £9,999*, subject to status.

This superb homebuyer initiative is available now with a strictly limited selection of Taylor Wimpey properties in Little Canfield, so would-be purchasers are being urged to act immediately if they want to take advantage of this exceptional offer.

Michael O'Leary, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Essex, says: "FirstBuy can make a huge difference to would-be first-time buyers by removing the biggest home-buying obstacle from their path - the need for a large deposit.

"Anyone hoping to secure their ideal property in Little Canfield with just a 5% deposit should visit our Sales and Marketing Suite as soon as possible to find out how we can help them!"

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 two-bedroom 'Dovedale' coach house-style apartment at The Firs at Priors Green, for example, can be secured by a qualifying purchaser for 80% of its £199,995 full price - that's just £159,996, including a 5% deposit of only £9,999!

This stunning home features a private front door leading upstairs to generous living accommodation, including spacious kitchen/living room, a master bedroom, a second well-proportioned bedroom and a bathroom, while the property also benefits from a car port and additional parking outside.

Alternatively, those looking to purchase a home without FirstBuy can choose from a selection of three-bedroom houses priced from just £276,995, four-bedroom homes from only £294,995 and five-bedroom properties from £434,995.

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.

Conveniently located in the already established new village development of Priors Green, The Firs nestles amid rolling fields and beautiful woodland on the fringes of Little Canfield.

A new community centre, a nursery and a primary school have already been built at Priors Green, while new local shops in the heart of the village will be ready soon.

The larger village of Great Dunmow is just four miles away for a wider choice of wonderful shops and speciality stores plus pubs, restaurants, cafés and bars. It also boasts its own leisure centre and swimming pool, parks and children's play areas, tennis courts, bowling greens and riverside walks.

The new homes are served by excellent transport links, with the M11 just over three miles away, while rail and coach connections - as well as international flights - are provided at Stansted Airport, less than two miles from the development, putting central London and Cambridge within an easily commutable distance.
