Taylor Wimpey is urging first time Bedfordshire property seekers to take advantage of the First Buy scheme at Billington Grove, its development in Leighton Buzzard.

  • By

  • First time buyers can secure an exceptional three bedroom home with just a 5 per cent deposit at Taylor Wimpey's Billington Grove development of new homes for sale in Leighton Buzzard.

    The Government-backed First Buy initiative offers qualifying purchasers the opportunity to access selected houses for sale in Leighton Buzzard for as little as 80 per cent of the full purchase price, including a deposit as low as 5 per cent, subject to status.

    So, first time buyers in search of new build homes in Leighton Buzzard could secure the fabulous three bedroom 'Coniston' at Plot 132 for 80 per cent of its £210,000 purchase price - that's just £168,000 with a deposit of only £10,500.

    Steve Rolt, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, says: "First Buy offers first time buyers a unique opportunity to leave renting behind and step on to the property ladder in style with the superb 'Coniston' property in Leighton Buzzard.

    "But interest in this stylish Leighton Buzzard property is incredibly high - so I am urging property seekers to act now or risk missing out on this excellent route into home ownership at Billington Grove."

    Thanks to a joint loan of 20 per cent from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, qualifying purchasers can secure the 'Coniston' at Billington Grove with a 75 per cent loan-to-value mortgage and a 5 per cent deposit, subject to status. The loan is repayable at the end of the 25 year mortgage term or when the property is sold.

    To be eligible for First Buy, customers must be first time buyers with a household income below £60,000. 

    The three bedroom 'Coniston' home features a fitted kitchen/breakfast room, plus a spacious lounge/dining room leading to an attractive conservatory and a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

    Upstairs, the first floor landing leads to two bedrooms and a main bathroom, while the ensuite master bedroom enjoys appealing seclusion on the top floor. Outside, the property benefits from two allocated parking spaces.

    Alternatively, the three bedroom 'Gosford' house is available at Billington Grove from as little as £190,000, while the five bedroom 'Lavender' home is priced from just £335,000.

    Billington Grove lies on the edge of the picturesque Bedfordshire countryside, yet just over a mile from Leighton Buzzard town centre and within easy reach of excellent commuter routes.

    Leighton Buzzard boasts an appealing variety of independent stores, boutiques, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and bars alongside a wide range of high street retailers and supermarkets, while open air markets including a popular farmers' market are hosted regularly in the town.

    For entertainment and leisure, Leighton Buzzard's theatre hosts a rich and varied programme of music, theatre, film, comedy, dance and family events, while the sports pitches, children's play areas and open spaces of Pages Park are all within walking distance of the development.

    The town also offers a selection of baby and toddler groups, nurseries and schools for children of all ages, while Billington Grove is also ideally placed for the region's excellent transport links, with the A5 and M1 close by and regular rail services operating from Leighton Buzzard station to London Euston in 45 minutes, as well as to Milton Keynes, Northampton and Birmingham.

    First Buy closed to new applications in April 2013. For the latest incentives, click here.
