New homes in Ipswich with appealing woodland views

15th March 2012 Print

Selected prime plots at Taylor Wimpey’s Cedarwood Grove development of property for sale in Kesgrave, Ipswich, are available with the FirstBuy scheme.

First-time buyers are being offered an incredible helping hand to own a fabulous three-bedroom townhouse with woodland views at Cedarwood Grove, Taylor Wimpey’s popular development of new homes for sale in Kesgrave, near Ipswich, Suffolk.

The fantastic FirstBuy scheme is available with selected ‘Hadleigh’ houses at this prestigious development of houses for sale in Ipswich – including prime plots backing onto the picturesque Fentons Wood.

The spacious three-bedroom Plot 5 ‘Hadleigh Special’, for example, can be accessed by qualifying first-time buyers at the Taylor Wimpey Ipswich development for 80% of its £198,995 purchase price under the FirstBuy scheme – that’s just £159,196, including a deposit of only £9,950.

FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which means that eligible purchasers choosing selected new build homes in Ipswich only need put down a 5% deposit, subject to status, 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 at the Taylor Wimpey Kesgrave development is sold. To be eligible, purchasers must be first-time buyers and their total household earnings should be less than £60,000.

Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “This is an exceptionally rare opportunity for fast-acting first-time buyers to choose one of the prime plots at our sought-after Cedarwood Grove development of properties to buy in Ipswich under the popular FirstBuy scheme.

“The ‘Hadleigh Special’ offers wonderful lifestyle opportunities for the purchasers, who will be able to enjoy delightful woodland views from their brand new dream home. Anyone hoping to secure one of these fabulous properties should contact us without delay to avoid missing out.”

The ‘Hadleigh Special’ is a superb example of a modern townhouse which has been generously laid out across three storeys, boasting a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room, a spacious living/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to two bedrooms and a main bathroom, while the en-suite master bedroom enjoys appealing seclusion on the top floor.

The ‘Hadleigh Special’ also benefits from two allocated parking spaces outside, and like all new homes at Cedarwood Grove, it is completed to a high standard specification, including central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.

Alternatively, four-bedroom properties at Cedarwood Grove are priced from only £208,995.

Cedarwood Grove enjoys a convenient location within Kesgrave, which has a distinct, village feel on the eastern fringes of Ipswich. Its wealth of local facilities includes pubs and eateries and a Tesco supermarket, as well as a library, a medical centre, and a scout hall.

Kesgrave community centre hosts a wide range of clubs and sporting associations, from cricket, football, bowls, tennis and exercise classes to theatre, arts and crafts and children’s activities.

Families will appreciate that the new homes are adjacent to Cedarwood Primary School, while Kesgrave also boasts a secondary school, and a day nursery.

Ipswich is a thriving town, steeped in history and offering a vibrant mix of heritage, the arts, theatre, cinema, clubs and bars, as well as a wide selection of shops.

And within a few minutes’ drive is the beautiful Suffolk landscape which inspired the artist Constable, and some of the county’s prettiest villages, as well as the stunning scenery of the celebrated Suffolk coastline.
