A NEW show apartment in Tonbridge is drawing crowds to the latest phase of Redrow’s development alongside the banks of the River Medway.
It’s the first time a completed property has been available to view at Cannons Wharf since sales relaunched at the development earlier this year and it is now the first port of call for potential purchasers.
Just a short walk from Tonbridge’s vibrant town centre, Cannons Wharf is also close to Tonbridge train station, which has direct links to London Bridge station in around 35 minutes.
Mary Timlin, sales director for Redrow Homes (Eastern), said: “Since the opening of the new show home at Cannons Wharf we’ve seen an uplift in our visitor numbers as buyers are keen to see a finished apartment in the new phase. It’s been styled by our team of professional interior designers to show case the fantastic potential of the apartments. We’ve already sold eight apartments off-plan and we expect the new show apartment to lead to even stronger interest from people who’ve been waiting to view a completed property.”
With a colour scheme of soft cream with metallic accents, the classic design will appeal to both young professionals and downsizers. The scheme has been given the ‘wow factor’ with a few contemporary additions including the glass beaded geometric wallpaper in the lounge/dining area, luxurious curtain and sofa fabrics and bespoke ‘objets d’art’.
Cannons Wharf is an established development being built in a number of stages. A new sales office is open so potential purchasers can view the plans and layouts.
The apartments offer desirable open-plan living areas and fabulous fitted kitchens with an array of appliances included as standard. Many of the two bedroom designs have en-suite shower rooms to the master bedroom and most have French doors leading out onto balconies.
Prices on the range of one and two-bedroom apartments are from £145,000 to £220,000
The Government-backed FirstBuy scheme could help first time buyers without a large deposit. It provides would-be home owners with an equity loan for 20% purchase price but buyers own 100% of their home and can hopefully look forward to lower monthly mortgage repayments.
With FirstBuy, a one-bedroom home priced at £145,000 can be purchased for an initial outlay of just £116,000, including a 5% deposit of just £5,800. First time buyers or those wanting to return to home ownership can apply providing their household earnings are less that £60,000 a year. The loan can be paid back when they have more funds available or come to sell.
The marketing suite and show apartment are open seven days a week from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information call 01732 668039 or log on to www.redrow.co.uk/cannons
