Children enjoy a fun-filled teddy bear's picnic

Children were treated to a Teddy Bear’s picnic at St Johns Wood as Redrow celebrated the return of 95% mortgages at its Winsford development.

Young visitors brought along their own teddy bears to the fun-filled family event, while the grown up visitors found out more about the Government-backed NewBuy scheme.

With many homebuyers keen to find out more about NewBuy, Redrow is hosting an additional information event next weekend (April 28/29) so visitors can meet with a mortgage specialist at the development to talk through their options.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), explains: “We were delighted to welcome the children and their teddy bears along to St John’s Wood and fun was had by all. All our young visitors were given a goody bag of treats to take home. On a more serious note though, we were able to speak to a number of people about how the NewBuy scheme is helping purchasers to get a 95% mortgage on our homes. Such is the level of interest in the scheme, we have decided to host a further event on April 28th and 29th to give more people a chance to speak to the experts.”

Designed to kick-start the housing market by underwriting mortgages up to 95% of the property’s value at competitive interest rates, NewBuy will be available to customers spending up to £500,000 on a newly built home, whether they’re a first time buyer or already own a house.

Anita added: “The idea of holding a teddy bears’ picnic as a celebration was inspired by our latest national marketing campaign, which features five-year-old Issy Duckworth, who is from Winsford, highlighting the all-round family appeal of a new Redrow home. “

Prices at St Johns Wood currently range from £174,995 for a three-bedroom detached house to £209,995 for a four-bedroom detached house.

Homes are from the New Heritage Collection and have been influenced by the architecture of the Arts & Crafts era, while inside they boast bright, modern interiors with convivial open plan spaces and high quality fixtures and fittings.

To find out more about NewBuy and speak to a mortgage specialist visit St John’s Wood on Saturday and Sunday, April 28 and 29 from 10am to 5.30pm.
