First-Time Buyer Chooses Ebbsfleet For Lakeside Living

Posted 27 June 2022 by Keith Osborne

A social worker and her family are loving life in their first home after moving from Greenwich to Ebbsfleet...

Barbara Baah, her partner and her two children moved into their three bedroom semi-detached ‘Braxton’ home in November 2021 after being thoroughly impressed during their first visit to Taylor Wimpey’s Waterside at Castle Hill in Ebbsfleet.

Barbara said: “After lots of research, the quality and price of Taylor Wimpey stood out over other developers and as soon as we visited Waterside at Castle Hill we knew this was where we wanted to move to.”

With two young children, the three-storey ‘Braxton’ was the ideal choice for Barbara and her partner. Barbara said: “There’s plenty of room for the children to enjoy, and we have the top floor to ourselves as our own private space. There’s also the added bonus of a beautiful view as our home overlooks the lake. I can see the sunrise from my window; it’s perfect!”

Barbara was impressed with the level of service from Taylor Wimpey. She explained: “Taylor Wimpey were really supportive and helped to make my dream of buying a new home possible even after my earnings were reduced after going on maternity leave. They talked me through my options and I used the Help to Buy scheme to secure my home with a 5% deposit. I was also able to benefit from a 5% discount under the care worker discount scheme which was running at the time. The sales team always kept me up-to-date with the progress of the build which was great and made the process more exciting.”

After seven months of living in their new home Barbara and family are enjoying being part of the community at Waterside at Castle Hill. Barbara says: “We’re very settled here and we’re very grateful to the Taylor Wimpey team for their help and support during the move process. The area is breathtaking and we’re loving it.”

There’s currently a selection of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes and two-bedroom apartments available at Waterside at Castle Hill. Find out more at www.taylorwimpey.co.uk.
