First time buyers can afford luxury houses in Stevenage

22 November 2010

When househunters Charlotte Pickering and Dean Neal started looking for their first home together, then never envisaged being in a luxurious three bedroom house in Stevenage’s premier address, Bragbury End, but that’s exactly where they’ve found themselves, thanks to homebuilder Charles Church.

Charlotte, 22 and Dean 25, had been looking for their first home for a number of weeks, and had viewed both new build and second hand properties. It wasn’t until the couple heard about Charles Church’s Bragbury Gardens development that they found exactly what they were looking for.

Charlotte states: “Even on the way to the development Dean and I were so impressed with the surrounding area, Bragbury End is such an attractive village which really appealed to both of us.”

Dean adds: “When we met with Charles Church’s sales adviser we both loved the properties that were available, but due to the size and quality of the homes we didn’t think we’d be able to afford what was on offer. It was lovely surprise to find we were able to purchase an even larger housetype than we first envisaged.”

Dean and Charlotte chose the beautifully proportioned three bedroom Upton design situated in one of the development’s quiet cul de sacs. The housetype hosts an abundance of features which the couple admired, including a dining area in the kitchen, ideal for entertaining friends and family, as well as an en suite shower room off the master bedroom, a guest cloakroom and a family bathroom.

Charlotte continues: “As Dean is a brick layer, he knows what to look out for in terms of quality of finish and specification and we couldn’t fault the homes at Bragbury Gardens.”

Elaine Stratford, sales director for Charles Church comments: “It’s great to be able to assist couples like Charlotte and Dean with buying their first home together, and the fact that they could comfortably purchase a bigger housetype demonstrates our commitment to helping first time buyers highlighting just how affordable our luxury properties are at Bragbury Gardens are.”

The homes for sale at the Bragbury Gardens development in Sudbury currently start from £179,950 for the Mews coach house, £299,950 for a two bedroom Dorset, £284,950 for a three bedroom Denmore and from £304,950 for a four bedroom Denbigh design.

Charles Church also offers a range of enticing incentives on selected plots to help making the moving process that much simpler, these include part exchange for those with homes to sell and 70 per cent shared equity HomeBuy Direct to assist those with a small deposit. Prices through HomeBuy Direct therefore start from £160,965 for the two bedroom Dorset housetype. The company can also recommend reputable independent solicitors and financial advisers who have access to exclusive mortgage rates.

Bragbury End is a highly regarded location as it offers wonderful access to a number of local towns and even the City. Bragbury Gardens is nestled into the Bedfordshire countryside, just three miles from the thriving centre of Stevenage, which offers all the necessary local amenities and facilities.

Commuters will be pleased to note that the development is just a short distance from the A1(M), providing great access to the M1 and M25.
