Show property in Barking draws the crowds

Taylor Wimpeys Academy Central Barking

East London property-seekers have been flocking to the new showhome at Taylor Wimpey’s popular Academy Central development of homes for sale in Barking.

An unprecedented number of visitors attended the hugely successful launch of the stunning new showhome at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Academy Central development of flats and houses for sale in Barking.

Over its opening weekend, the fabulous four-bedroom ‘Turner’ showhome attracted a huge amount of eager property-seekers to the Barking property development, to see how the leading housebuilder’s team of expert interior designers had styled the townhouse.

And they were delighted to find its three-floors had been decorated to the highest standard to include exquisite furnishings, fittings and finishing touches.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “It was really exciting for us to open up this fantastic showhome to the public seeking new homes for sale in Barking and the launch event was a great success.

“The opening weekend generated a wealth of interest in the ‘Turner’ houses, and as the showhome is still open, there is no better time to see one of these fantastic homes in all its glory before the available plots are all snapped up!”

This exceptional property boasts a spacious kitchen/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, while a handy guest cloakroom and an integral garage complete the ground-floor layout.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to a large living room, a bedroom and a main bathroom, while the en-suite master bedroom and two further bedrooms occupy the top floor. Outside, the ‘Turner’, which is priced from only £264,995, also benefits from allocated parking.

A tempting selection of stylish apartments is also available now at Academy Central, including one-bedroom designs from only £128,995 and two-bedroom homes from just £164,995.

Selected homes at the development are available with Taylor Wimpey’s easymover scheme, which lets customers sit back and relax while the housebuilder finds a buyer for their existing property – usually in around four weeks and sometimes in as little as a fortnight.

Alternatively, a limited number of plots are available with the Taylor Wimpey Deposit Match scheme for first-time buyers, which sees the leading housebuilder double customers’ deposits up to 10% of the purchase price of selected properties. Full details of all incentives are 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.
