An exceptional homebuyer incentive is making it easier to secure brand new properties in Kent at Taylor Wimpey's Leybourne Chase development.

  • By

  • Whether they are first time buyers or have a property to sell, prospective purchasers can secure selected houses and apartments in Kent with a 95 per cent mortgage and a 5 per cent deposit under this government backed scheme.

    The scheme is a welcome helping hand for those who are struggling to save a large deposit for their first property in Kent, as well as homeowners who have limited equity in their current home.

    NewBuy is available with brand new properties up to £500,000, and with prices at Leybourne Chase starting from just £179,995 for a stylish two bedroom apartment, meaning purchasers may only require a deposit of just £9,000.

    Meanwhile, delightful three bedroom homes are priced from just £249,995, with impressive four bedroom properties from only £294,995 and magnificent five bedroom detached houses from just £489,995.

    Fiona Creed, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, says: "We're urging home hunters to take advantage now of NewBuy which is helping people get moving, whether they're first time buyers or looking to upgrade to a bigger property to provide more space for a growing family.

    "They no longer need to spend years saving a hefty deposit, but can move into the home of their dreams much sooner than they might have thought possible."

    The three bedroom 'Gunnersbury' terraced home is priced from just £249,995, for example, and is eligible under the NewBuy scheme.

    This stunning family size home comprises a large living/dining room opening through French doors to a private rear garden, a contemporary fitted kitchen and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

    Upstairs, the landing leads to the ensuite master bedroom, a comfortable guest bedroom, a third bedroom which could alternatively be used as a study or nursery, and a family bathroom, while outside, the property benefits from two allocated parking spaces.

    Full details of NewBuy - and the range of other incentives on offer for first time buyers and those with a property to sell - are available from the sales executive.

    Enjoying a delightful, semi-rural location on the outskirts of Leybourne village, Leybourne Chase is a highly desirable new community comprising a superb selection of apartments and houses to suit a wide range of buyers.

    The development forms part of the Hospital Sites Programme run by the HCA to bring 96 former hospital sites back into productive use. As well as working with Taylor Wimpey to develop the site, the HCA is providing funding to ensure new and affordable homes are available for the local community.

    Nearly two thirds of the development site - some 140 acres - are being preserved as green open space for recreation and leisure, including parks, recreation grounds, fields, children's playgrounds, sports pitches, 'trim trail' footpaths, community allotments, a lake and an arboretum.

    For commuters, West Malling railway station is just over a mile from the development and provides regular services to London Victoria. Maidstone is only seven miles away by road, while quick links to the M20 mean central London is within easy reach.
