Stylish property in Kent wows first-time buyers
The showhome at Taylor Wimpey’s Great Easthall development of properties in Sittingbourne was exactly the type of place that first-time buyers Emma Rowe and Calvin Burgess were looking for.
The stylish design and spacious layout of the three-bedroom ‘Wessex’ showhome appealled to the young couple, who were hoping to purchase their first house together – but were struggling to save up a deposit.
Thankfully for Emma (24) and Calvin (28), one of the leading housebuilder’s helpful homebuyer incentives gave them the financial boost needed to secure the property their hearts were set on.
“Calvin and I have been together for over five years and it felt like we should move in together, so we visited Great Easthall to take a look around the showhome,” says Emma, a sales representative.
The couple instantly fell in love with the ‘Wessex’ showhome, and were fortunate to discover a similar property was available to purchase at the development of new homes for sale in Sittingbourne – but they still needed a deposit to secure it.
“We had been saving up for ages, but it was such hard work and at times it felt like we would never have enough money to secure a house,” adds Emma. “Fortunately, the Sales Executive at Great Easthall told us about the ways they could give assistance, and suddenly our dream home was within reach.
“Taylor Wimpey were such a big help – I’m not sure we could have afforded our home without taking advantage of one of the incentives.”
Emma and Calvin moved into their new home just two months after first visiting the development of houses and apartments for sale in Sittingbourne, and are loving life in their brand new terraced house.
“The main reason we wanted to buy our own home is so that we can start a family and this house will allow us to do just that. It’s got plenty of living space on the ground floor, plus a garden and there are three good-sized bedrooms upstairs,” says Emma.
“Right from the moment we stepped through the front door of our new home, it struck us as the kind of place we had been hoping to settle in. We love the area, it feels genuinely neighbourly and everyone we’ve met at Great Easthall has been friendly.”
There’s currently a superb selection of high-quality homes on sale at Great Easthall, including a two-bedroom coach house from as little as £119,500, three-bedroom houses from just £154,995 and four-bedroom properties from only £194,500.
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.

Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual circumstances and are subject to availability, with full details available from the Sales Executive.
