Tenants who dream of becoming homeowners will find that buying a property at Taylor Wimpey’s popular Great Western Park could be more affordable than they might have imagined.

Prospective purchasers who are tired of throwing money away on rent can choose from a selection of stunning homes priced from just £162,000 and available now at this sought-after development in Didcot, Oxfordshire.

Would-be buyers can even take advantage of the Help to Buy shared equity scheme at Great Western Park, which enables eligible first-time buyers and existing homeowners to secure a Government loan for 20% of the full price of their new home – meaning they only require a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a 5% deposit.

Darren McCormack, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Instead of lining their landlord’s pockets, renters who long to take their first step on to the property ladder will find a range of superb properties on offer at Great Western Park.

“And thanks to the Help to Buy scheme, realising their dream of becoming a homeowner could be easier and more affordable than home-hunters might think, so I would urge anyone interested to come and talk to us as soon as possible!”

There is a selection of homes currently available to buy at Great Western Park, including one-bedroom apartments priced from just £162,000, two-bedroom properties from only £215,000, three-bedroom homes from £265,000 and four-bedroom houses from as little as £342,000.

The two-bedroom Plot 293 ‘Dovedale’ coach house, for example, is priced £215,000 and features an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, a master bedroom, a further bedroom and a bathroom, while there’s a garage outside.

Help to Buy is available on new-build properties up to the value of £600,000 and there is no salary cap for homebuyers taking advantage of the scheme.

Great Western Park is conveniently located close to the vibrant town of Didcot, where homebuyers can enjoy a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, with all the amenities of Oxford city centre just 12 miles away.

Taylor Wimpey is also investing £60 million in transport, schools and other community facilities both within the development itself and the surrounding area.

Over time the new community will benefit from new primary and secondary schools, shops, community centres, a health centre, open spaces and play areas.

Commuters will enjoy easy access to the A34, which leads to the M4 and M40, while Didcot Parkway railway station offers regular services to London Paddington, with a journey time of around 40 minutes.

The nature reserves at Little Wittenham and Mowbray Fields are just a short distance away from Great Western Park for those who want to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside.

To find out more about getting on to the property ladder at Great Western Park, prospective purchasers can visit the Sales Information Centre, located off the A4130, Sir Frank Williams Avenue, Didcot, OX11 6AB, and open daily from 10am to 5pm (Mondays 1pm to 5pm). Alternatively, visit
