New apartments in Aylesbury available with FirstBuy
Selected apartments at Taylor Wimpey’s New Berry Vale development of property for sale in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, can be purchased with 5% deposits under a Government-supporter homebuyer initiative.
Aspiring Buckinghamshire property owners are being offered the chance to snap up a stylish apartment under the popular FirstBuy scheme at New Berry Vale, Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after development of new homes for sale in Aylesbury.
There’s a limited selection of one and two-bedroom ‘Thame’ apartments for sale in Aylesbury available through the Government-backed incentive, which lets qualifying first-time buyers secure their new home for just 80% of its full price.
Subject to status, FirstBuy customers require only a 5% deposit to purchase a new home at the Taylor Wimpey Aylesbury development, with the leading housebuilder and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) providing a 20% equity loan which is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold.
Under FirstBuy, one-bedroom ‘Thame’ flats to buy in Aylesbury, priced from £115,000, are available to eligible first-time buyers from only £92,000, with 5% deposits starting at just £5,750.
Alternatively, two-bedroom ‘Thame’ apartments in Aylesbury, priced from £135,000, can be secured through FirstBuy for as little as £108,000, including 5% deposits as low as £6,750.
Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “For anyone who feels like they’re stuck in a rental rut, FirstBuy offers a genuinely affordable route on to the Aylesbury property ladder, with lower monthly mortgage repayments and no need for a big deposit.
“But with only a limited selection of Aylesbury apartments available under this fantastic scheme, would-be homeowners should hurry along to New Berry Vale to find out more – because once they’re gone, they’re gone!”
The one and two-bedroom ‘Thame’ apartments available with FirstBuy at New Berry Vale have been designed specifically with first-time buyers in mind, offering generous accommodation that’s ideally suited to contemporary living.
Each property benefits from a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room opening out to a Juliet balcony or private terrace, along with one or two well-proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom off the internal entrance hallway, plus allocated parking outside.
To qualify for FirstBuy, purchasers must be first-time buyers with a combined household income below £60,000. Full details of the scheme, including terms and conditions, are available from the Sales Executive.
New Berry Vale is the opening phase of Aylesbury’s stunning new Berryfields community. Bordered by picturesque countryside, yet within easy reach of the town centre, it will comprise exceptional community facilities and employment opportunities alongside more than 3,000 homes.
There is also provision for two primary schools at Berryfields and the planned state-of-the-art Aylesbury Academy, which will specialise in science and technology.
A local centre will include a food store and ten other smaller shops, while acres of parks and green open spaces, including a riverside park area, will also feature 13 equipped play areas for families to enjoy. A community centre will provide a focal point for the residents of the new homes and a new health centre is also planned.
For commuters, the M40 and the M25 are both within easy reach of the development, local bus routes provide connections to Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton airports, and regular direct train services operate from nearby Aylesbury Vale Parkway railway station to London Marylebone.
