Taylor Wimpey North Thames has just launched its Beaumont Gardens development in St Albans, the newly converted Grade II listed Beaumont Works factory building.
The 28 newly refurbished one and two-bedroom apartments are available to first-time buyers or downsizers looking for high-spec properties on a Help to Buy scheme. Prices start at £402,500.
Do first time home buyers need a down payment?
The converted Beaumont Works factory, originally built in the early part of the twentieth century, will appeal to first time buyers and existing homeowners who would like to make use of the Government backed Help to Buy scheme to secure a new home with a deposit as low as five percent.
What are first time buyer schemes?
The government has created the Help to Buy schemes including Help to Buy: Shared Ownership and Help to Buy: Equity Loan to help hard-working people take steps to buy their own home.
The Help to Buy: ISA pays first-time buyers a government bonus. For example, save £200 a month and they will add £50, up to a maximum of £3,000, boosting your ISA savings of £12,000 to £15,000.
How to reserve a new build property
Jack Costello, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Thames, said: “We’re really excited about this new development and look forward to showing the newly converted homes for sale at Beaumont Gardens to prospective buyers. We’ve already received a huge amount of interest for the apartments so we’d urge anyone thinking of making the move, to view as soon as possible.”
