Parents can help their grown-up offspring step onto the property ladder at Taylor Wimpey's Millers Court development in Canterbury from as little as £7,988.

  • With many aspiring buyers struggling to get a foothold onto the property ladder, the leading house builder is offering a selection of apartments and houses in Canterbury, priced from only £159,750, under the fantastic NewBuy scheme.

    By making use of this Government-backed initiative at Millers Court, which lets credit-worthy purchasers secure their ideal new home in Canterbury with a 95 per cent mortgage, parents could potentially get rid of the kids by providing only a 5 per cent deposit.

    Jason Stokes, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey in the south east, says: "The rising cost of property over the past few years, coupled with mortgage providers demanding hefty deposits, has put off many aspiring buyers from securing their own house or apartment in Canterbury.

    "It's no surprise, then, that increasing numbers of young people are choosing to enjoy the home comforts at Mum and Dad's house for longer - which may work out well for them, but isn't necessarily as much fun for their parents.

    "Thankfully, NewBuy at our Millers Court development of houses and apartments in Canterbury puts that first home within reach of many first time buyers who may have felt that they could not afford to fly the family nest."

    The spacious two bedroom 'Bay Court' apartment at Plot 5 is just one of the homes available under NewBuy at Millers Court. Priced at just £159,750, this stylish maintenance-free home could be secured by qualifying purchasers with a 5 per cent deposit of just £7,988.

    It features a light and airy bay-fronted living/dining room with fitted kitchen, plus a master bedroom, a further well-proportioned bedroom and a main bathroom off the entrance hallway. Outside, the property benefits from communal parking and access to a communal garden.

    There's also a selection of alternative two bedroom apartment designs available at Millers Court from just £160,500, while four bedroom homes are on sale from £262,500 at the development.

    All new 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.

    Millers Court is located close to the heart of the vibrant and picturesque city of Canterbury, which boasts more than 320 shops as well as a wealth of bars and restaurants, cinemas and theatres. The development is also within easy reach of an abundance of schools for all ages.

    Commuters will appreciate that Canterbury is close to major road links and within easy reach of the City. The development lies just nine miles from the M2, about 16 miles from the M20 and under a mile from Canterbury East station, while Ashford International station is only 17 miles away, with journey times to London St Pancras just 38 minutes.

    Canterbury is steeped in history with the city's skyline dominated by the stunning cathedral, the oldest in England. The ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Much of the surrounding countryside is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beautiful north Kent coast is only a short drive away, with the artistic town of Whitstable - famed for its oysters - and the traditional seaside magic of Herne Bay both popular destinations for days out.
