Taylor Wimpey offers great new-build options in Staffordshire
In today’s housing market, new-build homes offer a host of benefits and buying options to first-time buyers and homeowners that re-sale properties don’t. They are a blank canvas to make your own and most come with a ten-year warranty, so you’re covered if things go wrong. And thanks to modern building standards, rising energy prices are much less of a problem because the homes are very well-insulated and are fitted with the latest energy-efficient appliances. Many housebuilders offer incentives and help to buy.
“Taylor Wimpey has a really impressive range of buyer incentives right now,” says Keith Osborne, editor of new homes portal whathouse.co.uk, “and homebuyers in Staffordshire will find a great selection of property types to suit their budget, whether they’re after an urban setting or somewhere quieter.”
Regency Square is a development of new three- and four-bedroom homes set around a pleasant park a mile and a half from the centre of Burton-on-Trent. Some properties are available with the government-backed FirstBuy scheme, which allows first-time buyers to defer some of the cost of a new home. At Regency Square, FirstBuy allows you to buy a £130,000 three-bedroom, two-bathroom terraced home with a deposit of as little as £6,500 and a mortgage of £97,500.

On the western fringes of Kidsgrove, Bluebell Croft offers two-, three- and four-bedroom homes priced from £149,995 up to £210,000 close to open countryside but with useful local amenities such as schools, shops, library, post office, bank and health centre. There’s another government-backed scheme on offer here, and this one is also open to homeowners, not just those trying to buy a first property. “The scheme, NewBuy, grants access to 95% mortgages, so buyers won’t need huge savings or equity in their current home to take advantage of it,” says Osborne.
Buyers should act quickly to secure one of just two remaining four-bedroom houses for sale at Broadhurst Gardens in Huntington, priced £199,995 and £224,995. The development offers a good alternative for those house-hunting in Hednesford, Stafford or Penkridge. It’s surrounded by a thriving community with good local amenities and is handy for the A34 Cannock to Stafford road and the M6.
Another popular new development is The Pinnacle in Stoke-on-Trent, a collection of apartments and family homes in an appealing location near the Peak District. The homes are built around a quiet cul-de-sac with rural views but within convenient reach of central Stoke-on-Trent. The M6 is nine miles away, putting Greater Manchester, the Midlands and North Wales within easy reach for commuters. Properties there are currently priced from £119,995 to £228,995, there are 95% mortgages available thanks to the NewBuy scheme.
