Taylor Wimpey Homes

Local Helston house hunters looking to escape the rental cycle and move into a home of their own are being encouraged to visit Taylor Wimpey Exeter’s Acres Edge development in the town, where there’s a collection of homes available, discounted by 25%*, which are exclusively available to them.

The two and three bedroom properties make the perfect first home and are available at this ‘once in a lifetime’ 75% price for local first time buyers struggling to get onto the property ladder.

Plot 163 is a two bedroom Newport coach house with a single garage and private garden, priced at just £99,995 through the scheme. A traditional mid-terrace two bedroom Buckthorn can be snapped up for just £119,995, and if you need something a little bigger, a three bedroom Charlock is available for only £135,995.

Janine Davey, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Exeter, said: “For many, owning their own home may seem like a distant dream, so it’s fantastic that we’re able to do something to help Helston’s first time buyers get onto the property ladder.

“Our low cost scheme provides them with a real opportunity to escape the rental rut, or mum and dads, by moving into a home of their own. So if you’d love to make the move onto the ladder, why not pay Acres Edge a visit to find out more.”

The Newport is a charming two bedroom coach house set above a private garage. It features a spacious living room, modern kitchen, master bedroom with ensuite, second bedroom and a contemporary bathroom, making it the perfect pad for someone living on their own, a couple, or even friends looking to pool financial resources.

The Charlock features an open plan living / dining room, modern kitchen and cloakroom on the ground floor, whilst upstairs are three bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom. The two bedroom Buckthorn is the perfect first home and features an open plan living / dining room, kitchen and cloakroom on the ground floor, and two bedrooms and a modern bathroom on the first floor.

Potential buyers keen to snap up one of the homes on offer need to be fully qualified by the Taylor Wimpey sales team before a reservation can be taken. The value of each ‘low cost’ property is capped at 75% of market value in perpetuity, but the owner of each home will always benefit from an increase in house prices.

Helston is a popular destination owing to the beautiful local scenery and nearby stretch of coast, which also benefits from specialist shops, cafes, tea shops and restaurants. The main Cornish road links are easily accessible from Acre’s Edge and Helston is served by regular bus and train services. There are a number of good schools in the area, making this an ideal location for families.

In addition to the low cost homes there’s currently a selection of two, three and four bedroom homes available with prices starting from just £149,995. To find out more, visit
