Home-hunters looking for more open space and greener views can take advantage of an incredible opportunity to snap up a new home for less at Taylor Wimpey’s Billington Grove development in Leighton Buzzard.

The Government’s new Help to Buy shared equity scheme is available now at this popular development, enabling first-time buyers and existing homeowners to purchase their new home at Billington Grove for 80% of its full price, including a 5% deposit.

Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Help to Buy is the perfect solution for would-be buyers who are struggling to step on or up the property ladder.

“This superb scheme makes it possible to secure a family-size home for less at Billington Grove and then enjoy the benefits of lower monthly mortgage repayments, leaving the homeowner free to enjoy the benefits of life in this wonderful location.

“Our homes offer incredible value for money and overlook open countryside – so hurry if you want to be part of this sought-after new community.”

The four-bedroom ‘Grasscroft’ house is just one of the homes available with Help to Buy. Priced from just £280,000, it features a light and airy kitchen/dining room with French doors leading to the private rear garden, a separate lounge and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to the en-suite master bedroom, a second bedroom, a study and the main bathroom. Two further bedrooms and a bathroom are located on the top floor. The property also benefits from a garage and additional parking outside.

Alternatively, the three-bedroom ‘Delamere’ terraced house is available at Billington Grove for just 80% of its full £225,000 price under Help to Buy.

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

The Help to Buy shared equity scheme involves a Government loan of 20% and is available on new-build properties up to the value of £600,000. There is no salary cap for purchasers using the scheme.
