Great rates on new homes in Bedford

First-time buyers have the chance to snap up a superb three-bedroom property in Bedford with just a 5% deposit at Taylor Wimpey’s Heritage Park.

The fantastic Government-backed FirstBuy scheme lets qualifying purchasers secure their perfect Bedfordshire property for as little as 80% of the full purchase price, including a 75% mortgage and a 5% deposit, subject to status.

Under FirstBuy, the stylish three-bedroom Plot 102 ‘Rowan’ house, at the leading housebuilder’s Heritage Park development of new build homes in Bedford, can be accessed by first-time buyers for 80% of its £190,000 price tag – that’s only £152,000, including a 5% deposit of just £9,500!

Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Heritage Park is the perfect place for first-time buyers to step onto the property ladder into one of our new houses for sale in Bedford – and FirstBuy makes this the ideal opportunity for would-be movers to leave renting behind in style.

“But Bedfordshire property-seekers hoping to secure the ‘Rowan’ at Plot 102 will have to be quick – as we don’t expect it to be around for long!”

Under the Government-backed initiative, 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 below £60,000.

This beautiful three-bedroom Plot 102 ‘Rowan’ terraced home features a contemporary fitted kitchen, a spacious lounge with French doors opening through to the private rear garden and a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the landing leads to three well-proportioned bedrooms and a main bathroom, while outside the property benefits from a garage and allocated parking.

Alternative three-bedroom house designs are available at Heritage Park from as little as £195,000, while five-bedroom properties are priced from just £370,000.

Heritage Park is part of Lakeview, the first of four villages, which will make up the self-contained, sustainable town of Wixams, three miles south-west of Bedford.

Designs for the new community draw on the best traditions of Bedfordshire’s market towns and homes will benefit from new shops, community and leisure facilities, schools and employment areas, in addition to 300 acres of sports pitches, parklands and green open space.

A new transport network puts bus stops within comfortable walking distance of the homes, a new railway station will provide quick links to London and nearby towns and cities, and an extensive network of cycleways and paths will make getting around a breeze.

Beyond the town boundaries, the re-aligned A6 and the A421 Bedford southern bypass put the region’s major commuter routes, including the M1 and A1, within easy reach, while those travelling further afield will appreciate that Luton Airport is just 15 miles away.

For days out, Wixams lies amid beautiful countryside and close to a wide range of established visitor attractions, including Woburn Safari Park and Wild Britain, Gulliver’s Land theme park and the Millennium Country Park in the Forest of Marston Vale.
