Help To Buy Still Available At Launton Scheme

Posted 23 August 2021 by Keith Osborne

Though now 60% sold, first-time buyers still have a chance to purchase through Help to Buy at Launton News...

Mulberry Homes has reported that its Launton Mews development in Launton in Oxfordshire is now 60% sold but still has a range of properties available to purchase with the government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme.

Located off Blackthorn Road, Launton Mews is a collection of 66 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes with easy access to both nearby towns and beautiful countryside.

Aimed at first-time buyers, the Help to Buy scheme allows property seekers to purchase a brand new home with just a 5% deposit. The remaining amount is made up from a 75% mortgage and a 20% equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years. In April 2021, the scheme was updated to bring regional price caps into effect, which in the South East of England is £437,600.

The two-bedroom ‘Bosworth’ and three-bedroom ‘Beacon’ style houses could be the perfect choice for a first home.

Three of the ‘Bosworth’ type are currently available, priced from £329,950. This semi-detached property benefits from a spacious open-plan kitchen/living room, a fully fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances of a single oven, four-burner gas hob and fridge/freezer, a living room area with French doors leading out to the turfed rear garden, two generous bedrooms and a family bathroom. The home is finished off with a cloakroom and under-stairs storage cupboard.

Four of the ‘Beacon’ type are currently for sale, priced from £367,950. This is also semi-detached and has a generous living room with double doors leading into the separate, fully-fitted kitchen/dining room, which benefits from the same integrated appliances as above, and French doors leading out to the garden. The ground floor is completed with a cloakroom.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and additional storage cupboard. Bedroom one boasts a private en suite, adding an extra luxurious feel.

Launton MewsKerry Jones, sales and marketing director at Mulberry Homes, said: “Launton Mews is a wonderful place for first-time property seekers to find a home that they can be proud to call theirs. This development has already proven popular with first-time buyers, families and downsizers alike, and we’re looking forward to welcoming more into their brand-new homes and creating a thriving new community.

“Launton Mews truly is a beautiful place to live, where the architecture has been inspired by the local area. Each of our homes have been designed with flexible living in mind, boasting modern layouts and high specifications.

“As we currently only have seven properties that are eligible for Help to Buy, I’d encourage anyone who is interested to get in touch with our sales team without delay and book their appointment to visit the development.”

As part of the developers’ ‘The Mulberry Way’ initiative, Launton Mews benefits from electric car charging points in the visitor parking area, automated smart parcel delivery boxes and a private gardening club for residents to enjoy.

Situated in Oxfordshire countryside, Launton is a village on the outskirts of Bicester, with plenty of local amenities. Only 10 minutes’ drive away is Bicester Village, home to more than 160 boutiques, chic restaurants and creative art exhibitions, providing residents with a luxury shopping experience. The development also benefits from being nearby to the Island Pond Wood – a 10-acre idyllic field in the centre of Launton with trees, a flower meadow and the Island Pond itself, where residents can enjoy long, countryside walks.

Launton Mews is now open by appointment only. Find out more at mulberryhomes.co.uk.
