Buyers invited to celebrate Help to Buy success in Chester

Prospective buyers and existing home owners are being invited to a special event to find out how they can take that first step onto the property ladder or move up a rung with only a small deposit.

Help to Buy is a government scheme that means house hunters can buy many of Redrow’s properties in Chester, including the four-bedroom, three-storey Kensington, with just a 5% deposit.

Visitors to Crown Park on February 22/23 will be able to talk to experts and find out more about the scheme and how it can help them secure a brand new home.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “The Kensington is a stylish townhouse that maximises the potential of the space available and potentially adds a new dimension to people’s living arrangements.”

The ground floor of the Kensington is particularly versatile. Along with the garage it features a room that could be equally suited as a study, a bedroom, a hobby room or even a play room for the children.

On the first floor there is the kitchen/dining room and spacious lounge, and on the top floor there are the remaining three bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom also boasts an en suite.

“Three-storey living is ideal for families and now, thanks to the Help to Buy scheme, these properties, along with a range of other three, four and five-bedroom homes, are well within reach. We’re looking forward to meeting buyers and discussing what financial options are available to them at the Help to Buy event.”

The Kensington comes with a price tag of just £276,995. Available through Help to Buy, the home could be purchased for £221,596 including a deposit of just £13,850, with the remainder covered by an equity loan for £55,399 from the Government.

Boasting a highly desirable location off Sandy Lane in the sought-after village of Huntington, Crown Park is situated in close proximity to the city centre.

Residents at the development can enjoy a relaxed pace of life with the River Dee and Cheshire countryside nearby, yet the homes are within walking distance of the vibrant shops, restaurants, bistros and cafes of Chester.

The Help to Buy weekend will be held at Crown Park on February 22/23 from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information call 01244 630730 or visit
