Stacy Dornan, Associate Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, says: “The fact that our newest purchasers have travelled so far to make their home at Peninsula speaks volumes about the wide-ranging appeal of this popular and well-located development of property for sale in Dovercourt.
“Peninsula is ideal for those looking to leave behind the stresses of city living and enjoy a more peaceful lifestyle on the picturesque north-east Essex coast.
“With prices starting from as little as £162,995 and selected properties available for as little as 85% of the full purchase price under Easy Start shared equity, new homes for sale at Peninsula represent exceptional value for money.”
The newest residents of Peninsula – a retired couple moving closer to their family and a professional couple relocating due to work commitments – each chose a fabulous four-bedroom ‘Salisbury’ townhouse, a versatile property which is just as well suited for growing families.
Priced from just £162,995, this light and airy three-storey, four-bedroom house benefits from a large lounge/dining room opening through French doors to the private rear garden, a separate contemporary kitchen/breakfast room and a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to two bedrooms and a main bathroom, while the en-suite master bedroom and a further bedroom comfortably share the top floor.
The ‘Salisbury’ also features a car port and additional private parking and, like all new homes at Peninsula, is completed to a high standard specification, including central heating, double glazing, a choice of ceramic wall tiles and a fitted Symphony kitchen with built-in oven, hob and hood.
Selected ‘Salisbury’ plots are now available with Easy Start shared equity, which lets qualifying first-time buyers purchase their new home for just 85% of the price – as little as £138,546.
The lucky buyer needs only to raise a 5% deposit – only £8,150 – and Taylor Wimpey will help arrange a mortgage covering 80% of the purchase price. The remaining 15% equity is provided in the form of an interest-free loan, which is repayable in up to three instalments over a 10-year period.
As alternatives to the homes available under the Easy Start scheme, the leading housebuilder offers a range of time and money-saving incentives, including assistance with finding a buyer for those with a property to sell.
Incentives can be tailored to customers’ individual circumstances and are subject to availability, with further information available from the Sales Executive.
Ideally situated on the North-East Essex coast, Peninsula offers homebuyers an enviable lifestyle close to Blue Flag beaches, a wealth of restaurants, bars and cafes, a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market and a great choice of shops.
The development is perfectly positioned for those in search of new build homes in Dovercourt, and offers an appealing alternative for movers looking for houses for sale in Colchester, new homes in Clacton and property for sale in Manningtree.
In addition to windsurfing and a wide range of watersports, Dovercourt Leisure Centre at Low Road offers a swimming pool and solarium, fitness suite and floodlit pitch, while facilities for football, rugby, cricket and tennis are also local.
For those who enjoy walking, trails provide the chance to explore the nearby woodlands and meadows, while the country lanes and shoreline also make for perfect cycling, and the National Cycle Network runs from Harwich to Manningtree.
Commuters will appreciate that Dovercourt Railway Station is only half a mile from home, with regular services to Colchester in 30 minutes, Chelmsford in 60 minutes, and London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes. Road links are also excellent, with the A120 to Colchester within easy reach, and Stansted Airport only 50 miles away.
The Peninsula Sales Centre and showhome is located off Main Road, Dovercourt, and open Thursday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm and Mondays from 1.30pm to 5pm. The Sales Executive can be contacted on 0845 671 1802.
