Get Help to Buy and sell at Heritage Park

Homeowners who had thought they couldn’t afford to make the next step up the property ladder are snapping up the chance to do just that at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Heritage Park development in Wixams, Bedfordshire.

That’s because the leading housebuilder can help to sell their existing home through its popular easymover scheme – and then the customer can take advantage of the Government’s Help to Buy shared equity initiative, which enables them to secure their new home for 80% of its full price, including a deposit as low as 5%!

The three-bedroom ‘Coniston’ terraced house, priced from £220,000, is one of the homes available to reserve now with Help to Buy and easymover at Heritage Park.

Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The opportunity to combine Help to Buy with easymover – or use either scheme separately – has fantastic potential to help purchasers find the home of their dreams at Heritage Park.

“We can help sell a customer’s existing property quickly with easymover and then they secure a spacious new home at Heritage Park under Help to Buy.

“Because purchasers only need a 5% deposit and a 75% loan-to-value mortgage, it means they can access a wider range of competitive deals from lenders and can mean they’re able to buy a larger property than they might have thought possible!”

The ‘Coniston’ features a large living/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a kitchen/breakfast room and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to two bedrooms and a main bathroom, while an en-suite master bedroom with dressing area enjoys appealing seclusion on the top floor. Outside, the ‘Coniston Type 1’ benefits from a car port and the ‘Type 2’ features a garage, while both designs have additional allocated parking.

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

Heritage Park is part of Lakeview, the first of four villages which will make up the self-contained, sustainable town of Wixams, three miles south-west of Bedford.

Designs for the new community draw on the best traditions of Bedfordshire’s market towns and homes will benefit from new shops, community and leisure facilities, schools and employment areas, in addition to 300 acres of sports pitches, parklands and green open space.

A new transport network puts bus stops within comfortable walking distance of the homes, a new railway station will provide quick links to London and nearby towns and cities, and an extensive network of cycleways and paths will make getting around a breeze.

The re-aligned A6 and the A421 Bedford southern bypass put the region’s major commuter routes, including the M1 and A1, within easy reach, while those travelling further afield will appreciate that Luton Airport is just 15 miles away.

For days out, Wixams lies amid beautiful countryside and close to a wide range of established visitor attractions, including Woburn Safari Park, Wild Britain, Gulliver’s Land theme park and the Millennium Country Park in the Forest of Marston Vale.

To find out more about securing the ‘Coniston’ with Help to Buy and easymover at Heritage Park, property-seekers should visit the Sales Centre, located at 1 Brooklands Avenue, Wixams, Bedford, MK42 6AX, and open daily from 10am to 5pm (Mondays 1.30pm to 5pm).
