For example, Taylor Wimpey’s Vision development in Hampton Vale is close to miles of beautiful open countryside, yet enjoys everyday amenities on the doorstep – and it’s very well placed for commuting to Peterborough, Huntingdon and London.
And better still, whereas a typical four-bedroom home in the City of Peterborough costs more than £230,000*, customers choosing a brand new four-bedroom home at Vision will pay as little as £181,995 – an immediate £48,000 saving.
Savings can also be made on four-bedroom homes at Taylor Wimpey’s Broadway Fields development in the village of Yaxley, on the southern edge of Peterborough, where the selection starts from just £222,995.
Kelly French, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “More and more people are taking the opportunity to work from home for at least part of the week, while enjoying a more laid-back and well-balanced way of living in delightful new homes away from our town centres.
“By moving out of town, clever buyers can secure a lot more home for their money!”
Just one of the new homes available is the four-bedroom ‘Claret’ at Vision, priced from £181,995 with garage and allocated parking space.
The ‘Claret’ is an ideal family home, which features an open-plan kitchen/breakfast room and a separate living/dining room with French doors to the rear garden, plus a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway completing the spacious ground floor.
Upstairs, the landing leads to two good-size bedrooms and the main bathroom, while the crowning glory of this stylish home is the splendid master bedroom complete with en-suite facilities, plus a further double bedroom on the top floor.
Like all new homes at Vision and Broadway Fields, the ‘Claret’ is finished to a high standard specification including a fitted kitchen with built-in oven, hob and hood.
House-hunters choosing a brand new Taylor Wimpey home can also benefit from a range of time and money-saving incentives for first-time buyers and those with a property to sell.
Taylor Wimpey’s easymover programme provides a range of special incentives on selected properties for first-time buyers, while customers with a property to sell can reserve their new home and then sit back and relax while the housebuilder finds a buyer for their current property – guaranteeing 100% of the market value – and pays the estate agents’ fees.
Customers can also take advantage of the leading housebuilder’s House 2 Home bespoke moving package comprising free UK removal regardless of distance or size of property, full packing and unpacking service and insurance cover.
Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual circumstances and are subject to availability. Further information is available from the Sales Executive.
Hampton Vale and Yaxley are both well-served communities on the edge of the Cambridgeshire countryside, yet with easy access to Peterborough city centre and major road and rail networks. London is just 50 minutes from Peterborough by train.
A good range of everyday facilities are located close by, including the Serpentine Green shopping centre and schools for younger children, while a wider selection of shopping, leisure and educational facilities can be found in Peterborough city centre.
