Fly the nest with an ideal home for first-time buyers at Heritage Park

Parents keen to help their grown-up children get on to the property ladder could find that securing a fantastic new home at Taylor Wimpey’s popular Heritage Park development is more affordable than they might think.

Stay-at-home adults struggling to save for their own place are being urged to find out how the Government’s Help To Buy scheme could enable them to secure their first home at the sought-after development in Bedford with low monthly mortgage payments and a deposit as low as 5%.

The shared equity scheme means would-be buyers can purchase a two-bedroom ‘Heritage’ apartment, for example, for 80% of its full £140,000 price – and with a deposit of as little as £7,000.

The average monthly cost of renting a two-bedroom property in the MK42 postcode area is £639, yet Help To Buy customers could look forward to lower monthly repayments of as little as £469.66!

Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Parents who are desperate to see their grown-up children finally fly the nest will be pleased to learn just how affordable a new home at Heritage Park can be with Help To Buy.

“I would urge anyone who might be interested in finding out how buying their first property can prove more cost-effective than wasting their money on rent to come and speak to our Sales Executive without delay.”

The two-bedroom ‘Heritage’ apartments at Heritage Park feature an open-plan kitchen/living/dining room, an en-suite master bedroom, a further bedroom and a main bathroom, plus allocated parking outside. Selected apartments on upper floors benefit from an attractive Juliet balcony off the living area.

Alternatively, there’s a selection of properties available to buy at Heritage Park, including the two-bedroom ‘Brenig’ coachhouse-style apartment priced at just £165,000, three-bedroom homes from only £215,000 and four-bedroom properties from as little as £245,000.

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 is no salary cap for homebuyers taking advantage of 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.

Beyond the town boundaries, 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.

To find out about securing one of the superb properties at Heritage Park using Help To Buy, property-seekers can visit the Sales Centre, located at 1 Brooklands Avenue, Wixams, Bedfordshire, MK42 6AX, and open daily from 10am to 5pm (Mondays 1.30pm to 5pm).
