Aspiring homeowners in Berkshire who missed the first release of new homes at Taylor Wimpey’s Ashwood Park in Reading are being urged to attend a special event as the development marks its official on-site opening.

A Help to Buy Weekend will be held at Ashwood Park’s new Sales Information Centre on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October, highlighting the advantages of this popular Government-backed incentive.

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

There’s a superb selection of stylish one and two-bedroom apartments priced from £245,000 and £287,500 respectively, and with Help to Buy available, buyers who’ve previously been renting may find their monthly outgoings are considerably reduced.

Buying brand new offers a host of benefits when compared to buying an older property. With energy-efficient central heating, double glazing and modern insulation, fuel bills are kept to a minimum, and there are no expensive repairs or DIY jobs to contend with.

Nikki Gibson, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We’re delighted to be opening on-site at Ashwood Park, having previously been selling the new homes here from our nearby Loddon Park development.

“We’re holding this special Help to Buy event to coincide with the opening weekend to give would-be buyers all the information they need about this fantastic scheme.”

The one-bedroom ‘Beech’ apartment (plot 45), priced at £245,000, features a dual-aspect open-plan kitchen/living/dining room with double doors, a spacious master bedroom, a bathroom and a handy storage closet off the entrance hallway. There’s also allocated parking outside.

Ashwood Park is located within easy reach of Reading’s wide selection of shopping, entertainment and leisure facilities. The development is situated opposite Prospect Park, Reading’s largest open space, which gets its name from the fine views across the Kennet Valley and beyond.

There’s a fantastic choice of shops and supermarkets in the town centre, just over a mile away, plus the Oracle Shopping Centre, which offers a variety of high street stores, as well as riverside restaurants, cafes and bars, and a multi-screen cinema.

Primary and secondary-aged pupils are well catered for with a number of schools and academies in the local area – and a new secondary school and sports facilities will be built as part of the Ashwood Park development. The University of Reading is just three miles away.

Commuters will appreciate the nearby M4 for convenient links to the rest of the country, while Reading railway station provides regular services to various locations including London Paddington and Waterloo, as well as Oxford, Bristol and Bournemouth.

Reading railway station will also benefit from the world-class new Crossrail service – Europe’s largest infrastructure project that aims to change the way people travel around London and ease congestion by improving journey times and offering better connections.

The Help to Buy Weekend will take place on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October between 10am and 5pm at the new Ashwood Park Sales Information Centre, located off Southcote Lane, Reading, RG30 3AE. Until then, the new homes are being sold from Loddon Park, located off Mohawk Way, Woodley, RG5 4TE, and open daily from 10am to 5pm. Alternatively, visit
