Do you dream of climbing onto the property ladder with a stunning new apartment in a picturesque woodland location close to Plymouth?
You may be surprised to find your first property is within reach for even less than you imagined, at Taylor Wimpey's Manor Oaks development in Tavistock.
Thanks to the house builder's Easystart scheme, anyone fed up of throwing rent money down the drain or living with their parents can now buy a stylish two bedroom Willow style apartment with idyllic views for less than £127,500.
Easystart is a new initiative designed to make it easier for buyers to get onto or move up the property ladder by paying only 85 per cent of the price of their new home now. Purchasers have to contribute a 5 per cent deposit and secure a mortgage on 80 per cent, while Taylor Wimpey provides the remaining 15 per cent through a rent and interest-free loan for up to 10 years. From day one, buyers own 100 per cent of their new home for 85 per cent of the price.
Janine Davey, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey in Exeter, explains: "The Willow style apartments at Manor Oaks are proving popular with first time buyers who, already attuned to the convenience of apartment living, are being wowed by the Willow's easy maintenance, contemporary interior style and stunning location. Having an apartment lifestyle doesn't have to mean city living as Manor Oaks enjoys the bonus of being set in a picturesque location just 30 minutes from Plymouth city centre; ideal for commuting.
"The Willow apartments provide accommodation in a woodland setting while being near to the amenities and entertainment Tavistock has to offer. They are perfect for those seeking a starter home that offers the best of both worlds. And as the apartments are available under our fantastic new Easystart scheme, there's never been a better time to buy at this idyllic development."
Each apartment enjoys a open plan living and dining room with bay windows, separate fully-fitted kitchen, two generous bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, and contemporary bathroom. An allocated parking space completes this home, providing somewhere to leave your car at the end of each day.
Priced from just £149,995 (£127,500 through Easystart), the apartments offer buyers a rural lifestyle as Manor Oaks is set among eight acres of mature parkland, giving residents an ideal sanctuary to soak up the idyllic atmosphere while exploring the extensive grounds of green open space.
Located on the edge of the award-winning historic market town of Tavistock and the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, Manor Oaks offers a range of idyllic two and three bedroom apartments in the recreated Manor House and three and four bedroom mews houses.
