Barratt Homes is making a return to the South Yorkshire town with the launch of its latest development, The Hedgerows.

  • By

  • Barratt Homes will be building 150 family homes at its development, The Hedgerows. The house builder expects competition to be tough for homes on this development, with interest for the mailing list already peaking above the normal level.

    The Hedgerows will consist of a range of three and four bedroom homes.

    Offers include Part Exchange, free carpets, Stamp Duty paid, help with legal fees, low deposits and the chance to make the move for just 80 per cent of the purchase price thanks to the First Buy shared equity scheme.

    First Buy has been designed to give first time buyers a route to home ownership at the lowest possible cost and deposit. Buyers will be offered a loan of up to 20 per cent of the price of the property, jointly funded by Barratt Yorkshire West and the Government's Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

    Barratt has a selection of properties available under the Government's NewBuy scheme, which makes the move onto the property ladder a lot more affordable. This initiative allows purchasers to buy a new build home in England with a 95 per cent mortgage. The scheme is open to first time buyers and existing home owners, providing that they have a 5 per cent deposit.

    Each of the homes at The Hedgerows also comes complete with a five year guarantee on all fixtures and fittings.

    Niki Jefferson, sales manager for Barratt Yorkshire West said: "Buyer confidence is steadily improving and we're seeing encouraging demand for our homes. The Hedgerows is set to offer buyers a wonderful community environment with a wealth of amenities just a stone's throw away.

    "The fact that we are starting a new site is also good news for local subcontractors and the supply chain. We continue to highly value the strong relationships we have with our partners in the build process and hope that Thurcroft residents will be able to see the great amount of benefits that this new development will bring to the area.

    "Barratt's continued investment in this region highlights how strong and vibrant the area is and we hope reflects the requirements of local buyers."
