A fresh selection of flats for sale in Barking has been unveiled at Taylor Wimpey’s flagship Academy Central development.

East London property-seekers are being offered a wealth of new opportunities to secure their place at Taylor Wimpey’s exciting Academy Central development of new homes for sale in Barking.

The leading housebuilder has launched a fresh selection of one and two-bedroom apartments for sale in Barking at this sought-after new community overlooking Mayesbrook Park, and home-hunters are urged to act quickly to secure their favourite plot.

Priced from only £109,646*, the new Barking apartments within Lancaster House offer an appealing combination of stylish design and generous interior layouts, making them ideal for couples or young families looking to take their first steps on the property ladder.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We’re delighted to unveil our brand new collection of high-quality apartments at Academy Central, and judging by the interest we’re already receiving from potential buyers, these stunning new homes in Barking are set to be big hit.

“Anyone interested in becoming part of this vibrant new community in a fantastic location should contact us as soon as they can – and make sure they don’t miss out!”

One-bedroom apartments are priced from just £109,646 under Taylor Wimpey’s easy start shared equity scheme, and each features a spacious lounge/dining room with open-plan kitchen, a good-sized bedroom, a bathroom and handy storage closets off the internal entrance hallway.

Easystart shared equity lets qualifying first-time buyers secure their choice of selected new homes now for just 85% of the full price, with only a 5% deposit required, subject to status.

Under the initiative, Taylor Wimpey provides 15% equity in the form of an interest-free loan, repayable in up to three instalments over a 10-year period, at the market value of the property when the payments are made.

Two-bedroom apartments, meanwhile, are available from only £164,995 – or £140,246 with easystart shared equity – and benefit from the added convenience of en-suite facilities to master bedrooms and allocated parking with selected plots.

All apartments are completed to a high standard specification, including central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood, and most plots include private balconies to living areas.

To make choosing one of these impressive homes even more straightforward and affordable, Taylor Wimpey offers a range of incentives, including help with deposits for first-time buyers and assistance with selling an existing home for those looking to step up the property ladder. Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual circumstances and are subject to availability, with full details available from the Sales Executive.

Academy Central enjoys an exceptional location offering great opportunities for work and leisure, with Vicarage Field, The Mall and Exchange Mall shopping centres all located within easy reach. A choice of health and fitness centres is also located nearby, while Mayesbrook Park provides acres of green space.

Goodmayes Railway Station is within walking distance of the development, and operates regular services to London’s Liverpool Street in just over 20 minutes and to Stratford, home of the 2012 Olympics, in approximately 13 minutes.

Homes at the development are designed to be up to 25% more energy efficient than properties built just three years ago. Plus, the majority of homes feature ‘green roofs’ which help improve air quality, provide natural insulation and promote bio-diversity.

To make a move to a brand new home at Academy Central, property-seekers should visit the Sales and Marketing Suite, located off Longbridge Road, Barking, and open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm.
