South London property-seekers are being urged to hurry if they hope to secure one of the final plots at Taylor Wimpey’s Aura development of apartments for sale in Croydon.

Contemporary living in a sought-after South London location has proved to be irresistible for homebuyers at Aura, Taylor Wimpey’s hugely popular development of property for sale in Croydon.

Discerning purchasers have wasted little time in taking their pick from the choice of desirable one and two-bedroom Croydon apartments at Aura, and property-seekers are urged to get in quick if they want to choose from the remaining stunning one-bedroom homes available at the development.

Fast-moving first-time buyers can get help to step onto the Croydon property ladder with the Government-backed FirstBuy initiative, available with these final one-bedroom plots at Aura.

This fantastic initiative lets qualifying purchasers secure their new home at the Taylor Wimpey Croydon development for as little as 80% of the full purchase price – including a 5% deposit, subject to status.

Fiona Creed, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Aura is an amazing success story and our high-quality flats for sale in Croydon look set to sell out very soon. Clued-up buyers in search of Croydon flats have continued to flock here, proving there simply is no substitute for stylish homes in a desirable location at exceptional-value prices.

“There’s an amazing opportunity for a few lucky first-time buyers to take advantage of the FirstBuy scheme – but they’d better get in before someone else beats them to it!”

FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which means that eligible purchasers only need put down a 5% deposit and obtain a 75% loan-to-value mortgage.

The loan is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.

The fabulous one-bedroom ‘Dunedin Court’ apartments in the final selection available at Aura are priced from as little as £169,995, and can be access by first-time buyers from £135,996 with FirstBuy.

The Plot 2 one-bedroom ‘Dunedin Court’ apartment, priced at just £169,995 or £135,996 with FirstBuy, for example, features a contemporary open-plan fitted kitchen and spacious living/dining room opening through patio doors to a beautiful private terrace, while there’s also a master bedroom, a bathroom and a storage closet located off the internal entrance hallway.

Like all homes at Aura, the Plot 2 apartment is completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.

Croydon is a bustling town with superb shopping, boosted by the massive Whitgift and Centrale shopping centres, which include Marks & Spencer, Debenhams and House of Fraser among their top names. A John Lewis at home store opened recently in Purley Way, a retail park famed for its big-name stores including Ikea, while the town also boasts a host of restaurants, bars and night-spots.

Commuters will appreciate that the development is just a short walk from East Croydon railway station, which offers frequent services into the capital in less than 20 minutes and Brighton in under an hour. Croydon also benefits from Tramlink, which has its main hub at the railway station.

The A23 and A22 are close by, putting the M25 within easy reach, and Gatwick Airport is just 21 miles from Aura.

Excellent sporting facilities include Croydon Sports Arena for athletics, golf courses, leisure and fitness centres and opportunities for sailing and riding.
