Why rent when you can buy a brand new home at Briars Chase?

23rd June 2014 Print

Renters who dream of becoming homeowners will find that buying a property at Taylor Wimpey’s popular Briars Chase development in Ilkeston 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 two-bedroom apartments priced from just £95,995 at this sought-after development in Derbyshire.

Eligible buyers can take advantage of the Help to Buy equity loan scheme 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 deposit as low as 5.

Mariana Knight, 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 apartments on offer at Briars Chase.

“Thanks to the Help to Buy scheme, becoming a homeowner could be even easier and more affordable than home-hunters might think. In fact, they may well find that their monthly mortgage repayments are less than the amount they’ve been paying in rent!

“However, there’s a great deal of interest in these high-quality, great-value properties, so I would urge anyone interested to come and talk to us as soon as possible!”

Ideal for first-time buyers or couples, two-bedroom ‘Seymour’ apartments at Briars Chase feature either an open-plan kitchen/living/dining room and two double bedrooms or a living/dining room, a separate kitchen, a master bedroom and a second bedroom.

Each apartment also features a bathroom and a handy storage closet off the internal entrance hallway, plus allocated parking outside, while selected plots boast attractive private balconies to living areas and master bedrooms.
Alternatively, the four-bedroom ‘Hawthorn’ townhouse is priced from £169,995 at Briars Chase.

All new 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.

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

Situated just a few minutes’ walk from Ilkeston’s thriving town centre, the new homes at Briars Chase benefit from having a good selection of shops, pubs and a cinema on the doorstep.

The development is also close to numerous infant, junior and secondary schools with Granby Junior School, Chaucer Junior, Infant and Nursery School, Bennerley School and Ilkeston Secondary School all less than a mile away.

For commuters, the A52 gives easy access to Nottingham and Derby, while the M1 provides excellent links to the North and South. Langley Mill railway station is less than four miles away, providing regular services to Nottingham in just 20 minutes and Sheffield in 45 minutes.
