Explore the sensational new showhome at Taylor Wimpey’s Latimer Square

The ‘Chiltern’ is characterised by a spacious, open-plan kitchen that’s perfect for dining, ensuring the ‘cook’ of the  household never feels out of the conversation. The kitchen/dining room has doors leading out to the garden, and is complemented by a large separate living room and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the landing leads to a master bedroom benefiting from en-suite facilities, while three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom, and outside there is a single garage.

The http://www.taylorwimpey.co.uk/newhomes/North+Midlands/LatimerSquare/TheChiltern/ ‘Chiltern’ design of home is available from £197,500 and comes with the peace of mind of a two-year Taylor Wimpey warranty, plus a 10-year National House-Building Council ‘Buildmark’ warranty and insurance.

As with all homes available for reservation at Latimer Square, the ‘Chiltern’ is currently being sold off-plan, which is great news for savvy buyers who can secure their new place now at 2009 prices, before moving in next year when property values are expected to continue to rise.

Among the superb range of properties to reserve are the three-bedroom semi-detached ‘Barwell’ priced from just £149,995 and the detached three-bedroom ‘Severn’ from only £184,995, a home which includes carpets in the price for the lucky purchaser.

The last of the popular four-bedroom ‘Draycott’ houses is also available to one quick-off-the-mark buyer, priced only £239,995. 

All new homes at Latimer Square will benefit from a high standard specification including a fitted kitchen with built-in oven, hob and hood, while customers reserving their home early can choose their carpets, flooring, lighting, kitchen design, tiling and appliances from Taylor Wimpey’s extensive Options range.

Daniel McGowan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says:

‘Buying a new home before it has been built provides a wealth of advantages for the customer, including having the pick of the plots and a guaranteed price, even if other properties of the same design increase in value.

‘The latest Halifax house price index reported a 1.2% increase in October – the fourth monthly rise in a row – and all the signs are that confidence is returning to the property market.

‘For home-buyers, now is the perfect time to secure a good home for a great price before the market really starts to gather pace.’

Househunters interested in making their move to the development can take advantage of incentives for first-time buyers and Taylor Wimpey’s easymover programme, through which customers with a house to sell can reserve their new home and then sit back and relax while the housebuilder helps to find a buyer for their current property.

Incentives can be tailored to homebuyers’ circumstances and are subject to availability. Further details are available from the Sales Executive.

Oldbury town centre, which is less than a mile from Latimer Square, blends traditional architecture with modern design.

The central square, and the waterways which arrived with the Industrial Revolution, add a vibrancy and style to this Black Country town. The canals are now used for pleasure boats and fishing, while a superb range of shops and restaurants occupy many of the striking, red-brick buildings.

The area is also home to a choice of schools for children of all ages, and for commuters, the M5 is a five-minute drive from the development and Langley Green railway station is less than two miles away. 

The showhomes and Sales Centre at Latimer Square are open Thursday to Monday, 11am to 5pm, and are located off Summerton Road, Oldbury. The Sales Executive is also available on 0845 676 2571.
