Aspiring homeowners in Nottinghamshire are being offered the chance to swap rented accommodation for their very own dream apartment at Taylor Wimpey’s Lime Tree Gardens development in Mapperley – potentially saving money in the process!

A total of 12 contemporary apartments are available to buy at this in-demand development, meaning purchasers could be settled in by Christmas, and with prices starting from just £119,995 property-seekers have been urged to ditch renting and buy now.

Mariana Knight, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Many people living in rented accommodation wrongly assume that the first rung of the property ladder is out of their reach, either because they think they’ll need a huge deposit or because they’re concerned they won’t be able to afford the mortgage.

“However, they may be surprised to learn that the monthly mortgage repayments on a new apartment at Lime Tree Gardens could work out cheaper than the cost of their monthly rent. To find out how, I would urge potential first-time buyers to visit the development as soon as possible.”

The apartments at Lime Tree Gardens are priced from £119,995 and feature a contemporary open-plan kitchen/living room/dining room with French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony, two bedrooms and a main bathroom off the entrance hallway. There is allocated parking outside and each apartment comes complete with carpets throughout.

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 Government’s Help to Buy scheme is available at Lime Tree Gardens, enabling first-time buyers and existing homeowners to secure their new property for 80% of its full price, including a deposit as low as 5%.

Help to Buy involves a Government loan of up to 20% and is available on new-build homes up to the value of £600,000. There is no salary cap for homebuyers taking advantage of the scheme.

Lime Tree Gardens enjoys an ideal location in Mapperley, a leafy residential area within easy reach of all the amenities of Nottingham city centre and with beautiful open countryside on the doorstep.

This charming location boasts a range of amenities for day-to-day living, including shops, pubs, restaurants, and leisure facilities, including Mapperley Golf Club and the Sports Village, which are just over a mile from home.
Families will appreciate that there is a choice of good schools for all ages within a short distance of the new homes.

Nottingham, one of England’s most vibrant cities, is located only four miles from the development, putting a vast array of shopping, leisure and entertainment opportunities within easy reach.

Frequent buses connect Mapperley with the city centre while Nottingham railway station offers regular services to London St Pancras in less than two hours.

To find out more about the new apartments at Lime Tree Gardens, property-seekers can visit the Sales Centre, located at Spring Lane, Mapperley, Nottinghamshire, open daily from 10.30am to 5.30pm. Alternatively, visit
