There’s a brand new view home open at Taylor Wimpey’s Penn An Dre development in Truro, Cornwall, giving discerning property-seekers the chance to discover how a spacious new-build property can ideally meet the needs of modern family life.

The beautiful four-bedroom ‘Monkford’ semi-detached house has now been unveiled, giving potential purchasers the opportunity to appreciate its thoughtful layout and exceptional use of space.

Anyone hoping to secure their dream home at Penn An Dre is advised to visit the view home without delay to see this gorgeous property for themselves.

Clare Brimble, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “While it’s possible to get a good idea of what a brand new property will be like from drawings and plans, the opportunity to step inside a view home allows purchasers to get a real feel for the place and visualise how they could make it their own.

“Anyone interested in finding out how a family-size house at Penn An Dre could be perfect for them should pay us a visit and see this wonderful property for themselves.”

There’s a choice of ‘Monkford’ properties currently available to reserve at Penn An Dre from £277,995,
The ‘Monkford’ features a spacious living room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a kitchen/dining room and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the landing leads to an en-suite master bedroom, three additional bedrooms and a main bathroom, while outside, the property benefits from a garage and driveway parking.

Alternatively, the four-bedroom ‘Candleston’ is priced from £339,995 at Penn An Dre, while the five-bedroom ‘Chelmsford’ is for sale from £369,995 and the six-bedroom ‘Kennilworth’ from £449,995. There’s also a choice of three-bedroom designs from £227,995.

The Government’s Help to Buy scheme is also available at the development, enabling eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to secure a Government loan of up to 20% of their new home’s full price – so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a deposit as low as 5%.
