Quick-off-the-mark first-time buyers are being offered a helping hand to purchase a stunning family-size property at Heath Meadows, Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after development of new homes for sale in Leighton Buzzard.

The Government-backed FirstBuy scheme is available with selected four-bedroom new houses in Leighton Buzzard, enabling qualifying first-time buyers to secure their new home at Heath Meadows for just 80% of its full price, including a 5% deposit, subject to status.

Among the new homes in Leighton Buzzard for sale with FirstBuy is the four-bedroom Plot 82 ‘Heather’ townhouse, for example, which is available to an eligible first-time buyer for 80% of its £210,000 purchase price – that’s just £168,000, including a 5% deposit as low as £10,500.

Christine Scarborough, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “First-time buyers can take advantage of a rare opportunity to secure a family-size property in Leighton Buzzard much sooner than they might have thought possible thanks to FirstBuy with Taylor Wimpey Bedfordshire.

“It’s the perfect solution for aspiring Bedfordshire property-owners who are struggling to save a large enough deposit and who need extra space for their family – but I’d advise anyone hoping to make the most of this superb incentive, available with selected new-build homes in Leighton Buzzard, to act without delay, before it’s too late.”

The Plot 82 ‘Heather’ townhouse offers generous accommodation across three floors, with a spacious living room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a kitchen/breakfast room and a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to a double bedroom with attractive Juliet balcony, a bedroom which could alternatively be used as a study and a main bathroom, while an en-suite master bedroom and a further well-proportioned bedroom occupies the top floor. Outside, the property benefits from allocated parking for two cars.

All new homes at Heath Meadows are completed to a high standard specification, including energy-efficient central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.

FirstBuy works through a joint loan of 20% from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Taylor Wimpey, which 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.

Heath Meadows occupies a convenient location in Leighton Buzzard, and is well served by local amenities, including a nursery and schools for children of all ages.

Just two miles from the town centre, the development is within easy reach of a wide selection of high street and independent stores, a twice-weekly market and a wealth of pubs, restaurants, health clubs and leisure facilities.

Quick links to London make a home at Heath Meadows highly desirable for commuters, with the A5 and M1 close by and the town’s railway station offering regular services to the capital and the north, while Luton Airport is only 18 miles away.

To secure a family-size home with FirstBuy at Heath Meadows, first-time buyers should visit the Sales Information Centre, located off Churchill Road, Leighton Buzzard, and open from 10am to 5.30pm, Thursday to Sunday, and from 2pm to 5.30pm on Mondays. Alternatively, log onto
