NewBuy available with new homes in Hampshire
Stunning properties in Hampshire can be secured with 95% mortgages at Taylor Wimpey’s The Romans at Augusta Park development.
Hampshire property-hunters are being offered a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of a Government scheme which makes it easier to purchase a new home at The Romans at Augusta Park, Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after development of homes for sale in Andover.
The NewBuy initiative helps both first-time buyers and those looking to move into a new property in Hampshire by enabling them to access 95% mortgages on homes up to the value of £500,000.
The scheme makes it easier for credit-worthy purchasers at The Romans at Augusta Park to secure houses and apartments in Andover with affordable mortgages and only a 5% deposit.
The initiative has already gone down well with buyers, many of whom see the size of deposit as the main barrier to purchasing a property. A recent survey by Taylor Wimpey revealed that 54% of first-time buyers had abandoned plans to buy a property in the last 18 months because they couldn’t afford to save the large deposit required by mortgage lenders. 57% of those surveyed also said they thought the Government should be doing more to help first-time buyers.
Tim Betts, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Time and again our buyers tell us that it is mortgage availability, not mortgage affordability, which is preventing them from buying.
“This scheme will help both those looking to get on the property ladder and those who want to move but have limited equity in their existing home, so it’s good news for the market as a whole.”
There’s a fantastic selection of brand new homes available at The Romans at Augusta Park which are eligible for NewBuy, including the three-bedroom ‘Denton’ semi-detached house.
This spacious home is priced from as little as £184,995 and features a light and airy lounge/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, a kitchen/breakfast room and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the landing leads to an en-suite master bedroom, two further bedrooms and a main bathroom, while a garage or parking space is located outside.
Meanwhile, two-bedroom apartments at The Romans at Augusta Park are priced from just £160,000, alternative three-bedroom designs from only £215,000 and four-bedroom houses from £274,995.
All homes at The Romans at Augusta Park are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
The development enjoys a prime position to the north of Andover town centre. A new primary school, community centre, sports hall and playing fields are to be constructed alongside the homes, as well as employment areas which may include new local shops and leisure amenities.
Currently, a range of shops, including a supermarket, is within easy reach of the development, a choice of primary schools can be found within half a mile, while a good selection of secondary and further education is located in Andover.
Andover town centre is just over a mile from The Romans at Augusta Park, and home to the Chantry Centre for shopping, a cinema and a theatre, a leisure centre with pool and classes and activities for adults and children, plus a choice of gyms.
Commuters will appreciate that Andover railway station is also just a short distance from the development and provides regular services to Salisbury, Basingstoke and London Waterloo, while the M3 and M4 are each within a 20-mile radius.
