Taylor Wimpey’s award-winning new homes in Essex
Taylor Wimpey East London has scooped a prestigious national award for Academy Central, its sought-after development of new build homes for sale in Essex.
The leading housebuilder’s popular new community of properties in Essex clinched the title of Best Urban Regeneration Project at the 2012 First Time Buyer magazine Readers’ Awards.
The award comes in recognition of the role Academy Central is playing in revitalising its community, providing new houses and apartments in Barking which are affordable to buyers in a range of circumstances and creating a host of public facilities.
Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We’re thrilled Academy Central has won this prestigious award which confirms the significance of the development to the overall regeneration of the area, addressing the urgent need for high-quality, value-for-money properties in Barking.
“The First Time Buyer magazine award also recognises that the benefits of this new community of homes in Barking are spread well beyond its boundaries, improving education, sports and recreation facilities, and developing employment opportunities in the local area.”
Academy Central is being developed in partnership with L&Q (London and Quadrant Housing) and comprises more than 900 sustainable houses and flats in Barking, overlooking picturesque Mayesbrook Park.
A much-needed new primary school is already open at Academy Central, as is a nearby leisure centre paid for in part with funding from the development.
The scheme is also providing a boost to the local economy with a number of its construction workers, contractors, suppliers and apprentices employed from the local area.
There’s a superb selection of high-quality homes now on sale to suit a wide range of purchasers at Academy Central, including one-bedroom apartments from only £135,995, two-bedroom apartments from just £164,995, three-bedroom apartments from £199,995 and three and four-bedroom houses from only £234,995.
All homes at Academy Central 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 buyers in a range of circumstances, including a discount for Armed Forces personnel, help with deposits for first-time buyers, and the easymover scheme for those with a property to sell.
Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual circumstances and are subject to availability, with full details available from the Sales Executive.
Academy Central enjoys an exceptional location offering great opportunities for work and leisure, with Vicarage Field, The Mall and Exchange Mall shopping centres all located within easy reach. A choice of health and fitness centres is also located nearby, while Mayesbrook Park provides acres of green space.
Goodmayes Railway Station is within walking distance of the development, and operates regular services to London’s Liverpool Street in just over 20 minutes and to Stratford, home of the 2012 Olympics, in approximately 13 minutes.
Homes at the development are designed to be up to 25% more energy efficient than properties built just three years ago. Plus, the majority of homes feature ‘green roofs’ which help improve air quality, provide natural insulation and promote bio-diversity.
Property-seekers can visit the Academy Central Sales and Marketing Suite, located off Longbridge Road, Barking, and open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm, or visit taylorwimpey.co.uk.
