The Sunnford house type

Discerning home-hunters in Hertfordshire can take their pick from a fantastic choice of homebuyer incentives when they purchase the fabulous four-bedroom ‘Sunnford’ at Taylor Wimpey’s Knights Walk development in Buntingford.

The leading housebuilder has a range of helpful schemes in place to make securing this family-size detached property even easier and more affordable for customers in a variety of circumstances.

Help to Buy, for example, enables eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to access a Government loan for 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%.

Alternatively, Part Exchange customers trading up to a larger home at Knights Walk receive an agreed offer price for their existing property, based on the average of independent professional valuations. With Taylor Wimpey acting as their cash buyer, they can stay in their old place until their new house is ready to move into.

Christine Scarborough, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Thames, says: “Purchasers who might have thought that moving to the ‘Sunnford’ was an impossible dream may find that this spacious family-size property is within their reach, thanks to the availability of a choice of helpful homebuyer incentives at Knights Walk.

“However, this incredible opportunity is not likely to be available for long, so I’d advise anyone hoping to make the ‘Sunnford’ their home to act now – before someone else beats them to it!”

Perfect for buyers who are looking for a bigger place to accommodate a growing family, the ‘Sunnford’ is priced from £560,000.

This handsome double-fronted property features a beautiful kitchen/dining room that opens through French doors to the private rear garden, while a spacious living room, a study and a guest cloakroom complete the ground-floor layout.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to an en-suite guest bedroom, two further well-proportioned bedrooms, a bonus room and a family bathroom, while a luxurious en-suite master bedroom with a separate dressing area enjoys appealing seclusion on the top floor. Outside, the property benefits from a garage and allocated parking.

The new homes at Knights Walk are nestled on the eastern fringes of the attractive market town of Buntingford, which has a choice of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, along with Co-op and Sainsbury’s supermarkets.

There are many well-regarded schools nearby, including Layston First School, which neighbours the development and is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, Edwinstree Middle School, also rated ‘outstanding’, and Freman College for 13 to 18-year-olds, rated ‘good’.

For commuters, the A10 is close to home for Cambridge and London, while Ware, St Margaret’s and Broxbourne railway stations all offer direct services to London Liverpool Street and Royston railway station offers routes to Cambridge and King’s Cross. For international journeys, Stansted Airport is just 16 miles away.
