Just two final chances remain for lucky property-seekers to own a brand new home at The Greengages, Taylor Wimpey’s popular development in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The last two plots from this stunning collection of new homes are now on sale – the beautiful three-bedroom ‘Flatford’ terraced house, priced at £170,500, and the impressive four-bedroom ‘Lydford’ detached house, at just £242,500.

Carl Cooke, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The Greengages has proved incredibly popular with property-seekers and as a result there are now only two houses remaining for sale.

“The final ‘Flatford’ and ‘Lydford’ properties are sure to be in demand with discerning home-hunters, so anyone hoping to snap one of them up will need to contact us without delay. This really is the last chance for home-buyers to make The Greengages their home!”

The ‘Lydford’ features a large kitchen/dining room with utility room and French doors to the private rear garden, plus a lounge with an attractive bay window and a guest cloakroom completing the ground-floor layout.

Upstairs, the landing leads to an en-suite master bathroom, three further bedrooms and a main bathroom, while there’s a garage and driveway parking outside.
Alternatively, the ‘Flatford’ boasts a spacious lounge/dining room, a kitchen and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway, with three bedrooms, including one with en-suite facilities, and a main bathroom upstairs. Driveway parking for two cars can be found outside.

All new homes at The Greengages are completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.

To make moving even easier and more affordable, Taylor Wimpey offers a range of helpful homebuyer incentives, including the Help to Buy equity loan scheme.

Help to Buy enables eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to secure a Government loan for 20% of their new home’s full price – so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a 5% deposit. The scheme is available on new-build homes up to £600,000 and there’s no salary cap for Help to Buy customers.

Situated in the tree-lined grounds of the former Thistleberry House care home, The Greengages lies within an established residential area, just minutes away from both the town centre and open countryside.

Newcastle-under-Lyme is home to a wide range of big-name shops, supermarkets, independent stores, leisure facilities, restaurants, pubs and entertainment venues, including the award-winning New Vic Theatre.

Parents will appreciate that The Greengages is within easy reach of a number of well-regarded schools for children of all ages, including St Giles’ and St George’s CE Primary School, Westlands Primary School, Newcastle-under-Lyme College, St John Fisher Catholic College, NCHS Science College and Edenhurst Prep School.

For commuters, the development is just three miles from junction 15 of the M6 for Birmingham and eight miles from junction 16 for Manchester and the north-west. Stoke-on-Trent railway station, meanwhile, is around three miles away for direct services to Manchester, Birmingham and London.

To stand a chance of securing one of the final properties at The Greengages, home-hunters can visit the Sales Centre, located off Keele Road, Newcastle-under-Lyme, ST5 2JT, and open Thursday to Monday from 11am to 5pm. Alternatively, visit
