According to Government research recently released, 131 new homeowners are using the flagship Help to Buy scheme to secure their new home everyday across the country. In total over 100,000 people have used the scheme with 80% of purchasers using it to buy their first home. Bellway is urging prospective purchasers to join the growing army of ‘Help to Buy’ buyers at Cottingham Park, in Great Chesterford.

Available on the last remaining two bedroom bungalow, Help to Buy provides an equity loan from the government of up to 20% of the value of the property, leaving the homebuyer to find a deposit of just 5% and secure a mortgage of up to 75% for the balance.

Sales Manager for Bellway Homes Essex, Paul Timson comments: “The Help to Buy initiative has helped thousands of buyers get their dream home. The homes at Cottingham Park have proved popular amongst purchasers, which is why we only have our last two bedroom bungalow remaining. Homebuyers interested should act fast to avoid any disappointment.”

Exemplifying the family homes on offer at Cottingham Park, the two bedroom Walden housetype at the development encapsulates perfectly what Bellway has to provide for homebuyers. Contemporary kitchens offer laminate worktops and stainless steel finishes, while all bathrooms and en-suites include white sanitary ware and chrome ironmongery.

The new homes are ideal for everyone, ranging from first time buyers and growing families to downsizers. The development is located next to an abundance of green space where residents can explore the Essex countryside, as well as enjoying the local amenities on offer.

For families, Great Chesterford Church of England Primary Academy lies within the village, less than ten minutes’ walk from the development. There are also a number of good schools in the surrounding area catering for pupils aged five to 18.

Closer to home, Great Chesterford offers a range of local amenities, including a community centre which is the hub of village life, a recreation ground home to bowls, cricket and football clubs, and several local pubs within walking distance. Just eight minutes’ drive away, the market town of Saffron Walden boasts a wider selection of shops, leisure facilities, cafes and restaurants.

Great for commuters, Cottingham Park is ideally located to benefit from the village’s excellent road connections. The M11 links with Cambridge, London and Norwich, as well as the A1(M) for journeys further afield. Less than 2km from the development is Great Chesterford train station, from where direct trains to Cambridge take as little as 16 minutes, with London Liverpool Street only 70 minutes away. For international travel Stanstead airport is less than 20 miles from the development.

The price at Cottingham Park is £334,995 for the last remaining two bedroom bungalow. For further information, visit
