While just four homes are available now for a pre-Christmas move, by reserving their new home for 2010 now, buyers can also guarantee today’s low prices at a time when the property market is showing clear signs of a recovery.
Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says:
"The combination of top-notch designs, superb build quality and affordable prices has made Greenacres one of our most successful developments in the South Midlands.
"We’re delighted to launch the next phase of this fantastic development and urge would-be buyers to come and see us today – and become part of something really special."
According to latest figures from Halifax, house prices rose for the fourth successive month in October yet off-plan buyers can still take advantage of property prices that are an average of 4.7% lower than this time last year*.
Securing a house before it is built also gives customers the pick of available plots and allows them to tailor the finishing touches of their home to suit their individual needs.
To make buying a home at Greenacres even easier, Taylor Wimpey’s money-saving easymover incentive takes all the hassle and extra expense out of moving house by arranging the sale of customers’ existing properties, covering all associated costs including stamp duty, legal fees and Home Information Packs (HIPs), and even providing a full removal service.
Just one of the fabulous designs available at Greenacres is the five-bedroom http://www.taylorwimpey.co.uk/newhomes/South+Midlands/Greenacres/Richmond/ ‘Richmond’, an exceptional three-storey, detached home perfectly suited to families looking to upsize before prices rise.
This stunning double-fronted design features a large living room with French doors into the rear garden, and a thoughtfully designed kitchen/breakfast room with a handy adjoining utility room, as well as a separate dining room, home office and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the landing leads to the magnificent master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite, two further bedrooms with en-suite facilities and a main bathroom, while the top floor comprises two large bedrooms and a shower room.
The ‘Richmond’ also benefits from a single garage and parking space and, like all new homes at Greenacres, enjoys a high standard specification, including central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with built-in oven, hob and hood.
Plus, anyone exchanging contracts within 28 days of reserving this amazing home will receive a landscaped garden, flooring and a high-spec upgraded kitchen included in the £349,995 price tag!
As an alternative to the ‘Richmond’, customers can select from a number of other great designs, including the delightful three-bedroom cottage-style ‘Radleigh’, which will be ready next month and is priced from only £240,000.
With shops and businesses catering for everyday needs, including a small supermarket, a newsagents, a bakery, a pharmacy, a library, a church, a hairdresser and a garage, Stotfold is well-equipped for everyday life.
The town has a choice of schools for catering for younger children while provision for older children can be found in neighbouring Arlesey and Clifton. A selection of pre-school groups are also available within Stotfold, and an adult education centre is based at Clifton.
Letchworth, a 10-minute drive from the development, offers a wider choice of high street and independent stores, as well as a vibrant leisure scene including sports facilities, cinemas, cafes, fashionable bars and restaurants.
