FirstBuy available with new homes in Biggleswade
First-time buyers hoping to step onto the property ladder will need to hurry to take advantage of the FirstBuy scheme at Taylor Wimpey’s Saxon Fields development of properties in Biggleswade.
Under this popular Government-backed initiative, selected new homes for sale in Biggleswade can be purchased by qualifying first-time buyers for 80% of their full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.
However, with just a few chances remaining to secure a new property in Biggleswade at Saxon Fields with FirstBuy due to the incredible popularity of the scheme, would-be purchasers will have to hurry if they hope to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
Christine Scarborough, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “FirstBuy has been a big hit with savvy first-time buyers who’ve snapped up the chance to step onto the property ladder for less at Saxon Fields – so we’re now down to the very last FirstBuy opportunities at this popular development in Biggleswade.
“It’s the perfect solution for purchasers who are struggling to save a large enough deposit for their first home in Biggleswade, but I’d stress they should act quickly and contact us without delay to avoid missing out.”
The two-bedroom Plot 764 ‘Dovedale’ coach house-style apartment is one of the final plots which can be accessed for just 80% of its full £155,000 purchase price by one qualifying first-time buyer – that’s just £124,000, including a 5% deposit of as little as £7,750.
This gorgeous property features a contemporary kitchen/dining/living room, two bedrooms, a main bathroom and a handy storage closet off the landing, plus its own private front door downstairs and a car port with additional parking space.
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.
Alternatively at Saxon Fields, there’s a superb choice of three and four-bedroom houses priced from just £249,950, while the magnificent five-bedroom Plot 779 ‘Wilton’ detached house is priced at only £355,000.
All new homes at Saxon Fields are completed to a high standard specification including central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with built-in oven, hob and hood.
The development is located in the new community of King’s Reach, to the south-east of Biggleswade town centre, bordered by open countryside yet within easy reach of day-to-day facilities.
King’s Reach offers plenty of opportunities for pleasant walks and cycle rides, while Biggleswade boasts a wide selection of high street and independent shops, a bustling weekly market, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, health facilities, a cinema and a leisure centre and pool.
A good choice of schools in the town ensures children of all ages are well catered for, with Southlands Lower School, Holmemead Middle School and Stratton Upper School and Community College right on the doorstep.
For commuters, Biggleswade railway station is only a mile from the development and runs frequent services to London King’s Cross in as little as 35 minutes, while the A1 for the capital and the north is just half a mile from home.
