Householders in Oxfordshire who dream of a home with more space are being invited to a special event at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Kingsmere development in Bicester on Saturday 25th January.

Growing families will appreciate the need for a home which gives them that essential extra bedroom, while others may long for a bigger kitchen or a house with a garden – and they can enjoy all this and more by choosing their favourite plot from the stunning selection currently available at Kingsmere.

What’s more, purchasers can find out how the Help To Buy shared equity scheme could enable them to secure their new home for less at the special event.

The scheme means eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell can secure a Government loan for 20% of the full price of their new home – so they only require a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a 5% deposit.

Property-seekers can also be among the first to look around the new ‘Thame’ view home at the development, which will be launched on 25th January and offers an insight into the appealing design and spacious interior layout of the properties available at Kingsmere.

Darren McCormack, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Many people feel as if they are stuck in a rut, wondering how they will ever be able to afford a bigger place, but Help To Buy means many purchasers will find they can afford a larger home than they might have previously thought possible.

“For anyone living in a home which is becoming too small for their needs, that extra bit of space can really make all the difference to their everyday lives. I’d urge anyone who dreams of a luxury lifestyle in a spacious new property to come along to our event on 25th January where they can speak to the Sales Executive at Kingsmere and an independent financial advisor for all they need to know about Help to Buy.”

There’s a fabulous collection of properties currently available at Kingsmere, with each home boasting a wealth of generous accommodation thoughtfully designed to suit busy family lifestyles.

The three-bedroom ‘Crofton’ is priced from £296,000, while there’s a choice of four-bedroom designs from £336,000. Meanwhile, the five-bedroom Plot 29 ‘Thame’ is available for just £459,000, and this great-value price includes a fully integrated kitchen and ceramic flooring to the hallway, kitchen and cloakroom.

The ‘Thame’ features a spacious living room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a large kitchen/breakfast room, a separate dining room, a study, a utility room and a guest cloakroom completing the ground-floor layout.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to two en-suite bedrooms, a further bedroom and a main bathroom, while two additional bedrooms and a shower room occupy the top floor. The property also benefits from a garage and driveway parking outside.

Kingsmere is an attractive new village located in a prime position on the south-western fringes of the pretty Oxfordshire market town of Bicester, within easy reach of the M40 and the town’s two railway stations.

In addition to the high-quality homes there, the new community will over time benefit from a new primary and a secondary school, a village centre with shops, community and health facilities, a business park and a hotel.

Two major recreational areas are being created at Kingsmere, together with a new sports village with outdoor pitches, a running track and changing facilities, while Bicester Hotel, Golf and Spa is located nearby.

Bicester town centre benefits from a variety of shops, supermarkets, traditional pubs and places to eat, while the town is also home to the Bicester Village retail outlet.

Kingsmere is just three miles from junction 9 of the M40 for Birmingham and London, and the A34 for Oxford, 12 miles away. Bicester North and Bicester Town railway stations provide services to Birmingham, London, Oxford and the West Country.

Anyone who dreams of escaping to a bigger home at Kingsmere with Help to Buy can come along to the special event on Saturday 25th January from between 10am and 5pm at the Sales Information Centre, located off Middleton Stoney Road, Bicester, OX26 1RS. The financial advisor will be available from 1.30pm. Alternatively, visit
