New homes in Essex have real rural appeal
The stunning location of Taylor Wimpey’s The Firs at Priors Green development of property for sale in Essex convinced homebuyer Martina Edwin it was just the place for her.
It’s often said that homebuyers know in seconds when a new place is right for them – and this was certainly the case for Essex property-seeker Martina Edwin when she visited Taylor Wimpey’s popular The Firs at Priors Green development of new homes for sale in Takeley.
In fact, the 58-year-old was so impressed with the style, design and location of the properties to buy in Essex that she was prepared to sacrifice the £1,000 reservation fee she had paid for a house with a different builder so that she could live there.
And now that she has settled into her brand new home at the Taylor Wimpey Essex development, Martina is in no doubt that she made the right decision.
“When my employer relocated from Southampton to Essex I followed them, which meant I needed to find somewhere new to live,” says Martina, a company secretary, remembering the day she discovered the development of houses for sale in Essex. “It all happened so quickly that I had to stay in rental accommodation while I looked for a place to buy.
“I finally found a house I liked and paid a reservation fee to secure it, but then I saw the properties at The Firs at Priors Green and really fell in love with them.
“The location, layout and feel of the four-bedroom ‘Kempsford’ detached house at the development were ideal and I immediately knew that I had to live there.”
In spite of her financial commitment with a different builder, it wasn’t long before Martina had snapped up her very own Taylor Wimpey property.
And by purchasing it off-plan, Martina was able to choose from the leading housebuilder’s range of interior Options to make sure it was finished in exactly the way she wanted.
“I can’t put my finger on it – the property is just perfect,” she adds. “I like the large living room and the bedrooms are all good sizes, plenty of storage space has been worked into the rooms and the accommodation is extremely generous.
“Even though there was the possibility of losing the money I’d already paid for the other house, I went ahead with purchasing the ‘Kempsford’ and now that it’s my new home I have absolutely no regrets.”
There’s a superb selection of homes currently on sale at The Firs at Priors Green, including two-bedroom coach house-style apartments from as little as £199,995, two-bedroom starter homes from only £224,995, four-bedroom houses from just £299,995 and magnificent five-bedroom detached properties from £434,995.
All 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.
To make choosing one of these high-quality homes even more appealing, Taylor Wimpey offers a range of helpful homebuyer incentives for first-time buyers and those with a property to sell.
Part Exchange, for example, sees Taylor Wimpey offer homeowners a guaranteed price for their existing property, based on the average of independent valuations.
Meanwhile, the NewBuy scheme offers first-time buyers and those with a property to sell the chance to purchase their new home with a 95% loan-to-value mortgage.
Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual circumstances and are subject to availability, with full details available from the Sales Executive.
Conveniently located in the already established new village development of Priors Green, The Firs at Priors Green nestles amid rolling fields and beautiful woodland between Little Canfield and Takeley.
A new community centre and nursery have already been built at Priors Green, and work is now under way on local shops in the heart of the village and a brand new primary school.
Takeley village itself offers a selection of facilities including a primary school, while the larger village of Great Dunmow is just four miles away and is home to a wide selection of wonderful shops and speciality stores, pubs, restaurants, cafés and bars. It also boasts its own leisure centre and swimming pool, parks and children’s play areas, tennis courts, bowling greens and riverside walks.
Meanwhile, the bustling market town of Bishop’s Stortford is just six miles from the new homes, boasting top name stores such as Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Next, as well as a host of leisure activities including a sports centre, cinema and ten pin bowling.
The new homes are served by excellent transport links, with the M11 just over three miles away, while rail and coach connections – as well as international flights – are provided at Stansted Airport, less than two miles from the development, putting central London and Cambridge within easy commuting distance.
