Homebuyers purchasing properties at Taylor Wimpey’s Blenheim Grange development of new homes for sale in Carbrooke, Norfolk, can make significant savings by buying brand new.

Property-seekers in Norfolk are being urged to discover Taylor Wimpey’s Blenheim Grange development of new build homes in Carbrooke – and save up to £19,000 on a brand new detached house.

This popular development of houses for sale in Carbrooke, in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, offers a superb selection of substantial four-bedroom detached houses that are priced very attractively compared with similar-sized second-hand property for sale in Carbrooke.

For example, in the average asking price for four-bedroom houses for sale in Watton is around £19,700 more than similar at Blenheim Grange*.

Prices at this sought-after development of new build homes in Norfolk start from just £184,995 for a brand new four-bedroom detached ‘Malbury’ home with garage. The final two plots of this impressive Carbrooke property type are also available to first-time buyers from as little as £147,995 under the Government’s new FirstBuy scheme, which lets qualifying purchasers secure selected homes with a 75% mortgage and only a 5% deposit.

Under the initiative, Taylor Wimpey and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) provide a 20% joint loan, repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or after the property is sold. Full details, including terms, conditions and eligibility, are available from the Sales Executive.

And because Taylor Wimpey’s Blenheim Grange homes are all zero-maintenance, with energy-efficient central heating, insulation and double glazing, they offer even better value for money for buyers.

Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The difference in property prices in this part of the world is quite something.

“Choosing a new home at Blenheim Grange can save savvy buyers a small fortune on their deposit and monthly mortgage payments.

“Plus, by choosing a brand new home, purchasers have all the benefits of a maintenance-free property, and aren’t left with the previous occupants’ botched DIY projects and décor!”

The impressive double-fronted ‘Malbury’ boasts a spacious kitchen and large lounge, both opening through French doors to the private rear garden, while the ground floor is completed by a utility room, a separate dining room, a home office and a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the landing leads to an en-suite master bedroom, three further double bedrooms and a main bathroom.

Alternatively, two-bedroom properties at Blenheim Grange are priced from as little as £85,595, and three-bedroom townhouses from only £115,195.

Blenheim Grange enjoys a peaceful woodland location between the quiet village of Carbrooke and the attractive market town of Watton, which offers shops catering for everyday needs and a choice of nursery and primary schools.

For a wider choice of shopping and leisure, Thetford is only 15 miles from the development and the city of Norwich is less than 25 miles away by road.
