Leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is holding a very British celebration to mark the official opening of the brand new showhome at its NR1 development of apartments for sale in Norwich.

As the nation gears up for a landmark year celebrating all things British, Taylor Wimpey is preparing to host a ‘Cool Britannia’ bash at NR1, its sought-after city-centre development of flats for sale in Norwich.

The special event on Thursday 12th April is the leading housebuilder’s own build-up to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, and marks the launch of a beautiful brand new showhome with a distinctly patriotic feel at the Norwich apartments development.

The one-bedroom Taylor Wimpey Norwich show apartment is being dressed to impress by expert interior designers with a stylish combination of British-themed vintage and contemporary furnishings and decor.

From 6pm until 9pm, visitors to the riverside development of apartments to buy in Norwich off Wherry Road can enjoy traditional fish and chips and sip a British tipple or two before taking a look around the stunning showhome – with Britpop music providing the evening’s soundtrack.

Home-hunters in search of new homes for sale in Norwich will also be able to enter an amazing free prize draw to win a luxury weekend for two in London, including tea at the Ritz, a trip on the London Eye, tickets to a West End show and a night in a 4-star hotel.

Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Ahead of the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympic celebrations, we’re kicking off this year’s party season in seriously fabulous style with our Cool Britannia event at the most exciting new development of apartments in Norwich.

“Home-hunters who come along to see us will not just be the first to see our beautifully finished Brit-chic show apartment and enter our free prize draw, but they can also talk to our experienced sales staff and an independent mortgage advisor about how easy and affordable choosing one of our new flats in Norwich at NR1 could be.

“Anyone who wants to secure their place at this stylish contemporary Norwich flats development in the heart of the city should mark Thursday 12th April in their diary – and make sure they don’t miss out on this fantastic occasion!”

There’s a superb selection of one and two-bedroom apartments currently available to purchase at NR1, with prices starting at £132,995 and £152,995 respectively.

Selected plots can be accessed by qualifying first-time buyers for 80% of their purchase price under the FirstBuy scheme – that means from £106,995 for a one-bedroom apartment and £122,395 for a two-bedroom design. Full details are available at the development.

Apartments at NR1 each feature a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room, good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom off the internal entrance hallway, while two-bedroom plots include en-suite facilities to master bedrooms. All apartments also benefit from attractive private balconies with access from both the living area and bedroom.

Superbly located in landscaped surroundings and appointed to present fantastic views over the River Wensum, NR1 offers city living at its best.

The Riverside leisure and entertainment complex is right on the doorstep and Norwich’s main shopping district is just a short walk away, with the home of Premier League football club Norwich City only a stone’s throw from the development.

Home to the renowned University of East Anglia, the city also has a thriving cultural scene, with several theatres as well as arts and live music venues.

For commuters, Norwich station is only half a mile away from NR1 for frequent services to London, Peterborough, Cambridge and the seaside towns of Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Sheringham, while the A47, A11 and A140 provide excellent road routes north, south, east and west.

The Cool Britannia showhome launch is taking place from 6pm until 9pm on Thursday 12th April at the NR1 Sales Information Centre, located in Wherry Road, Norwich, NR1 1WS. More details are available by visiting
