The Letchworth house style at Castle View

With an increased choice of homes now available and incentives on offer to help buyers step on or up the property ladder, there’s never been a better time to visit Castle View in Stafford.

Four-bedroom homes at the Redrow development in Doxey Road have attracted keen interest from families. As building work has progressed, the award-winning housebuilder has released three-bedroom designs for sale.

It’s fantastic news for those looking for a new home in Stafford, particularly as there are incentives available to help get people moving.

Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), commented: “The increased choice at Castle View means we’re able to cater for the housing needs of a wider range of buyers. Plus with help available in the form of Government-backed schemes including 95% mortgages through NewBuy and FirstBuy, which offers first time buyers the chance to take out an equity loan for up to 20% of the price, customers could find that owning a stylish new home is more affordable than they realised.”

Prices at Castle View start from £182,995 for a three-bedroom Letchworth style property.

It can be secured with a 5% deposit of £9,150 with NewBuy or FirstBuy.

“While FirstBuy is only open to first time buyers, a whole host of purchasers could seize the opportunity to buy with a 5% deposit and 95% mortgage through the NewBuy initiative,” Pauline added.

“For example, it’s ideal for second steppers who want and need somewhere larger to start a family but perhaps don’t have substantial equity in the home they’re moving from.”

The three-bedroom Letchworth at Castle View is a prime example of how Redrow have combined the charm and character of the architecture of the Arts and Crafts era, with bright modern interiors. Externally it has all the traditional features of a 1930s’ semi, but inside it boasts a high specification designed to meet the demands of 21st living.

The open plan kitchen and dining room spans the width of the property with French doors that open onto the rear garden, offering lots of natural light and helping to bring the outside ‘in’. There’s a separate lounge, plus a laundry and cloakroom on the ground floor.

Castle View is close to the Doxey Marshes nature reserve, enabling householders to enjoy the great outdoors close to home.

With Stafford train station only a mile away and the M6 motorway and M6 toll road easily reached, it’s an ideal commuter base.
