New homes in St Ives available with 5% deposits
First-time buyers still have time to take advantage of the FirstBuy scheme at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Slepe Meadow development of new homes for sale in St Ives, Cambridgeshire.
The Government-backed initiative is available now with selected plots at the development, giving qualifying purchasers the chance to secure their dream house in St Ives for just 80% of its full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.
The spacious three-bedroom ‘Aston’ townhouse at Plot 43 is just one of the high-quality homes available under the FirstBuy scheme at Slepe Meadow. This brand new Taylor Wimpey home in St Ives can be accessed by a qualifying purchaser for 80% of its £209,950 purchase price – that’s just £167,960, including a 5% deposit of as little as £10,498.
Christine Shea, Regional Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey, says: “This is a rare opportunity for first-time buyers to secure a spacious family-size property in St Ives with the FirstBuy scheme, making it the ideal solution for individuals, couples and growing families looking to step on the property ladder.
“Just two of the fabulous ‘Aston’ properties are currently available with this incentive, so home-hunters should visit our Sales Information Centre immediately – or risk missing out on their opportunity to secure this fantastic townhouse with just a 5% deposit!”
This spacious townhouse features a contemporary kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to a living room, a bedroom and a guest cloakroom, while an en-suite master bedroom, a further double bedroom and a main bathroom occupy the top floor. The property also benefits from an integral garage and a parking space.
Alternative three-bedroom designs at Slepe Meadow are priced from just £205,000, while four-bedroom homes are priced from only £285,000.
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.
Under FirstBuy, Taylor Wimpey and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) boost the purchaser’s down-payment with a joint loan of 20%, which is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, customers must be first-time buyers with a household income of under £60,000.
Full details about the FirstBuy scheme are available from the Sales Executive.
Slepe Meadow is situated within easy reach of St Ives’ historic waterfront and town centre with its bustling market place, yet the new homes also enjoy a peaceful location bordered by open countryside.
A perfect location for commuters, Slepe Meadow benefits from quick and easy access to the A1123 for Huntingdon, a mere four miles away. Huntingdon railway station, with its direct routes to Kings Cross and Peterborough, is just five miles from the development, while Cambridge is only 16 miles away via the A14, which also connects to the A1 and M11 motorway, and, a little further afield, the M1 and M6.
