Dovercourt property is available with FirstBuy
Taylor Wimpey is offering first-time buyers help to climb on to the Essex property ladder at Peninsula, the leading housebuilder’s popular development of homes for sale in Dovercourt.
Fast-moving first-time buyers can get help to step on the Essex property ladder with the Government-backed FirstBuy scheme at Taylor Wimpey’s Peninsula development of new houses for sale in Dovercourt.
This fantastic initiative lets qualifying purchasers secure their new Dovercourt property now for just 80% of its full purchase price – including a deposit as low as 5%, subject to status – and is available with selected homes at Peninsula.
Under the FirstBuy scheme, for example, one lucky purchaser could access the stylish two-bedroom ‘Chesterton’ terraced property for sale in Dovercourt for just 80% of its £127,995 purchase price – that’s just £102,396, including a deposit of as little as £6,375!
Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “FirstBuy offers first-time buyers a unique opportunity to leave renting behind and step on to the property ladder in style.
“However, we have already experienced considerable interest in this fantastic initiative and availability is strictly limited, so I would stress to anyone interested in taking advantage of the offer that they must be quick to avoid missing out.”
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 two-bedroom ‘Chesterton’ is an ideal first home, boasting a spacious living/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, a contemporary fitted kitchen and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the landing leads to two bedrooms and a main bathroom, while outside the property benefits from a parking space.
Alternatively, two-bedroom coach-style apartments are priced from just £112,995 – or £90,396 with FirstBuy – at Peninsula, while three-bedroom houses start from only £149,995. The four-bedroom ‘Salisbury’ townhouse, meanwhile, is priced from just £157,995 and also available with FirstBuy for as little as £126,396.
All new 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.
Peninsula offers homebuyers an enviable lifestyle close to Blue Flag beaches, a wealth of restaurants, bars and cafes, a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market plus a great choice of shops including an Asda supermarket on the doorstep.
In addition to windsurfing and a wide range of watersports, Dovercourt Leisure Centre in Low Road offers a swimming pool and solarium, fitness suite and floodlit pitch, while facilities for football, rugby, cricket and tennis are also local.
For those who enjoy walking, trails provide the chance to explore the nearby woodlands and meadows, while the country lanes and shoreline also make for perfect cycling, and the National Cycle Network runs from Harwich to Manningtree.
Commuters will appreciate that Dovercourt Railway Station is only half a mile from home, with regular services to Colchester in 30 minutes, Chelmsford in 60 minutes, and London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes. Road links are also excellent, with the A120 to Colchester close by, and Stansted Airport only 50 miles away.
