First-time buyers in Shropshire hoping to step on the property ladder in style are being urged to discover the fabulous ‘Canford’ at Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Willmott Fields development in Wem.

Priced at just £146,995, the two-bedroom semi-detached ‘Canford’ is the perfect starter home for couples or individuals looking to secure a place of their own.

What’s more, this wonderful property is available with the fantastic Help to Buy scheme, which enables eligible purchasers to snap up a new home with a deposit as low as 5%!

Anne Wallace, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The layout of the stylish ‘Canford’ has been carefully designed with first-time buyers and downsizers in mind.

“Those looking to take their first step on the property ladder will be pleased to know that we offer a range of incentives on this property, including the popular Help to Buy scheme, while our brilliant easymover scheme is also available for existing homeowners hoping to swap old for new.

“I’d encourage anyone in the market for a two-bedroom home at a great-value price to discover the ‘Canford’ at Willmott Fields.”

The ‘Canford’ boasts a large lounge/dining room with double doors that open out to the private rear garden – great for al fresco dining during the summer months – plus a well-proportioned kitchen and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, a spacious en-suite master bedroom is the perfect place to unwind after a long day, while a generous second double bedroom and a main bathroom are ideal for when guests come to visit. Outside the property benefits from two allocated parking spaces.

The Help to Buy equity loan scheme enables eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to secure a Government loan for up to 20% of the full price of their new home, so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a deposit as low as 5%. That means savvy home-hunters could snap up the ‘Canford’ with a 75% mortgage of £110,246 and a 5% deposit of £7,350.

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

Alternatively, with the easymover scheme, customers can take their pick from a choice of homes at Willmott Fields and then let Taylor Wimpey help find a buyer for their current property, usually within just a few weeks or sometimes in as little as a fortnight! What’s more, Taylor Wimpey will even pay for all of the estate agent’s fees, leaving more in your pocket to personalise your new home!

Willmott Fields also offers a selection of three-bedroom houses from £172,995, while four-bedroom designs are on sale from £239,995.

Enjoying an enviable location on the northern fringes of the pretty market town of Wem, Willmott Fields lies on the edge of picturesque open countryside and rolling Shropshire hills.

Wem has been a market town since 1202 and numerous small speciality shops line the central streets, while a swimming and lifestyle centre has recently opened. Wem railway station offers direct services to Shrewsbury and Crewe for connections to the north-west, Birmingham and London, while the M6 is only 25 miles away.

To be in with a chance of snapping up the ‘Canford’ at Willmott Fields, property-seekers should visit the Sales Centre, located off Whitchurch Road, Wem, Shropshire, SY4 5AQ, and open from Thursday to Monday between 11am and 5pm. Alternatively, visit
