Just a handful of high-quality properties remain available at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Millers Keep development of new homes for sale in Stone Cross, near Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Home-hunters looking for a stylish home at a great price are being advised to act quickly if they want to secure one of the final plots at Millers Keep, Taylor Wimpey’s exclusive development of property for sale in Stone Cross.

Discerning East Sussex property-seekers have been beating a path to Millers Keep since the Taylor Wimpey Stone Cross development launched last year – and all but five of the high-quality new homes, which benefit from fine views of a restored Victorian windmill in a desirable village location, have already been snapped up.

The final homes are all exceptional two and three-bedroom properties to buy in Stone Cross, priced from just £174,995 and £239,995 respectively, offering prospective purchasers the opportunity to enjoy traditional country living within easy reach of the vibrant seaside town of Eastbourne.

Fiona Creed, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “This superb collection of coach house apartments and mews and semi-detached houses for sale in Stone Cross has been a big hit with customers and we now have just five plots remaining at Millers Keep.

“Potential buyers in search of new build homes in Stone Cross should act now if they want to take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a stylish property in a stunning location which boasts picturesque countryside just a few miles from the coast.”

One of the final homes on sale at Millers Keep is the two-bedroom Plot 5 ‘Keep’ coach house apartment. This delightful property is available with the fantastic FirstBuy scheme which means it can be accessed by a qualifying first-time buyer for just 80% of its £174,995 price tag – that’s just £139,996 – including a 75% mortgage and 5% deposit, subject to status.

The ‘Keep’ boasts its own front door leading upstairs to a contemporary open-plan living/dining room with fitted kitchen, plus two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, the property benefits from a double car port.

What’s more, the great-value price also includes a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and flooring throughout.

FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which means that eligible purchasers only need put down a 5% deposit and obtain a 75% loan-to-value mortgage.

The loan is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term or when the property is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.

Alternatively, Taylor Wimpey offers a range of additional time and money-saving incentives for first-time buyers and those with a home to sell. Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual requirements and are subject to availability, with further information available from the Sales Executive.

Millers Keep occupies the former site of Stone Cross Nursery in an established residential area of the village. Within a short walk is a local supermarket, a primary school, a pub and the village playground, while a community market is held weekly at St Luke’s Church.

The neighbouring Grade II listed Stone Cross Windmill is open for guided tours and houses the local heritage centre, while beyond this beautiful and historic landmark lies the picturesque Sussex countryside.

Regular bus services run from Stone Cross into Eastbourne, Hailsham, Polegate and Pevensey. The new homes lie between two railway stations, Pevensey & Westham, just over a mile to the east, and Polegate, two miles to the west, which both offer train services to Eastbourne, Brighton and London Victoria.

The elegant seaside town of Eastbourne is just four miles away. Nestling at the foot of the South Downs, the town boasts excellent lifestyle opportunities including two shopping centres, a range of individual seafront boutiques and the fashionable stores and restaurants of The Waterfront at Sovereign Harbour.
