FirstBuy available with homes in Leighton Buzzard
First-time buyers can secure stunning two-bedroom apartments in Leighton Buzzard with just a 5% deposit at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Billington Grove development.
The Government-backed FirstBuy scheme is available now at this popular development of new properties in Leighton Buzzard, offering qualifying purchasers the chance to purchase one of a limited number of ‘Lyon’ apartments for just 80% of their full price – including an affordable 5% deposit.
These stylish new flats in Leighton Buzzard are on the market for just £145,000 – which means they can be secured under FirstBuy for as little as £116,000, including a 5% deposit of only £7,250!
Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “FirstBuy offers first-time buyers a wonderful opportunity to leave renting behind and to step on the property ladder in style at our Billington Grove development of new homes for sale in Leighton Buzzard.
“Just a small selection of ‘Lyon’ apartments is being offered with this superb scheme, so anyone interested in stepping on the property ladder without having to save for a hefty deposit should visit our Sales Centre today!”
FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency and Taylor Wimpey. 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 ‘Lyon’ features a spacious open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, a master bedroom, a well-proportioned second bedroom and a main bathroom, while outside the property benefits from two allocated parking spaces.
Alternatively, three-bedroom houses at the Billington Grove are on sale now from just £190,000 and four-bedroom homes are available from only £280,000.
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.
Billington Grove lies on the edge of the picturesque Bedfordshire countryside, yet just over a mile from Leighton Buzzard town centre and within easy reach of excellent commuter routes.
Leighton Buzzard boasts an appealing variety of independent stores, boutiques, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and bars alongside a wide range of high street retailers and supermarkets, while open-air markets including a popular farmers’ market are hosted regularly in the town.
For entertainment and leisure, Leighton Buzzard’s theatre hosts a rich and varied programme of music, theatre, film, comedy, dance and family events, while the sports pitches, children’s play areas and open spaces of Pages Park are all within walking distance of the development.
The town also offers a selection of baby and toddler groups, nurseries and schools for children of all ages, while Billington Grove is also ideally placed for the region’s excellent transport links, with the A5 and M1 close by and regular rail services operating from Leighton Buzzard station to London Euston in 45 minutes, as well as to Milton Keynes, Northampton and Birmingham.
