From two-bedroom apartments to three-bedroom mews on a buying plan

Following a surge in demand from first-time buyers, a property developer has announced plans to build an additional series of properties suited for this market at its Willow Fields development in Wesham.

Miller Homes is developing a block of three two-bedroom apartments and nine three-bedroom mews and semi-detached homes available from just £89,950.

The new homes are available to buy now off-plan and will be ready to move into in December.

Kay Halls, sales manager at Willow Fields, said: “We have had a spate of enquiries from first time buyers and as such we are planning more homes to keep up with demand.

“These new properties at Willow Fields will provide an excellent opportunity for people who are finding it difficult to get on the property ladder.

“Located in a beautiful setting, this new phase will give first-time buyers a rare opportunity to purchase a property which is both affordable and in a fantastic location close to open countryside and also within easy commuting distance of nearby towns and cities.”

To give those looking to move a helping hand, Miller Homes is offering FirstBuy, a government funded equity loan scheme aimed at first time buyers with a limited deposit.

The scheme, which is available on selected properties, provides buyers with an equity loan of up to 20% of the purchase price, meaning the only have to fund the balance of the purchase price (as little as 80%) with a conventional mortgage, savings and any deposit where required.

Kay said: “Having the option of buying with the FirstBuy scheme is proving a lifeline for house hunters who otherwise wouldn’t be able to purchase their first home.

“With an 80/20 equity split available this provides much needed support for many new home buyers.”

In addition to these homes, there are also just 18 properties remaining at Willow Fields, including the four bedroom Westminster townhouse, which is on the market for £177,950. This spacious property includes a master bedroom with en suite, carpets, turfed rear garden and its own parking space.

Willow Fields is a peaceful development near to open farmland and the market town of Kirkham, yet within easy reach of the M55, M6 and Wesham Railway Station making it ideal for commuters to Blackpool and Preston.
