Great-value new build apartments in Anerley

Taylor Wimpey Apartments

First-time buyers in search of a stylish apartment for a fantastic price should visit Taylor Wimpey’s Scholar’s Court development of new homes in Anerley, south London.

A selection of the leading housebuilder’s development of stunning one-bedroom apartments for sale in Anerley is now available to purchase, offering generous accommodation from as little as £158,250.

These beautiful new homes in Anerley are ideal for individuals or couples looking to take their first step on the property ladder, and because Scholar’s Court offers quick transport links to the heart of the capital, they are perfect for commuters, too.

And if aspiring first-time purchasers do not have a significant deposit ready to secure one of these new properties in Anerley, Taylor Wimpey can assist with its fantastic FIRSTSTEPS scheme, in association with the Home and Communities Agency (HCA).

Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South East, says: “With the majority of mortgage lenders demanding large deposits from first-time buyers, it can be a struggle for would-be purchasers to raise the money required to secure their first home.

“But with FIRSTSTEPS, owning a property in Anerley is within reach for so many first-time purchasers who would otherwise have been forced to save for years and years to accumulate a big deposit.”

This fantastic initiative lets qualifying purchasers secure new build homes in Anerley for as little as 80% of the full purchase price – including a 75% mortgage and a 5% deposit, subject to status – and it’s available now with selected one-bedroom apartments at Scholar’s Court.

Taylor Wimpey and the HCA will boost the purchaser’s down-payment with a joint loan of 20%, which is repayable at the end of the 25-year mortgage term, or when the property is sold. To be eligible for FIRSTSTEPS, customers must be first-time buyers with a household income below £60,000.

Situated on the ground floor, the one-bedroom Plot 65 apartment offers an exceptionally well-planned layout, featuring a light and airy open-plan kitchen/living/dining area, opening through French doors to a private terrace which spans the entire width of the property, plus a master bedroom, a main bathroom and a handy storage cupboard off the private entrance hallway.

Alternatively, great-value two-bedroom apartments with allocated parking will be available soon.

For commuters, Scholar’s Court offers excellent links to the heart of the capital, with the extension to the East London tube line linking Anerley to Canada Water and the main underground network. Both Crystal Palace and Anerley railway stations are each within walking distance of the development.

There is also easy access to the A212, A214 and A215, while for those travelling further afield, Heathrow and Gatwick airports are each just over 20 miles away.

Located in a quiet, leafy residential area of Anerley, Scholar’s Court provides the perfect urban hideaway for professionals looking to escape the hustle and bustle of central London, yet enjoys a rich variety of amenities close at hand.

A choice of shops, bars, leisure facilities and a vibrant local street market are all within easy reach of the development, while Beckenham, just over a mile away, boasts plentiful quality restaurants and night spots. Meanwhile, The Glades shopping centre in Bromley and The Whitgift Centre in Croydon are each less than four miles from home.

The ever popular Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, which has recently benefited from £20 million investment, is close to home, offering a fantastic range of sporting opportunities, including one of London’s premier 50m swimming pools.
