Bellway Homes is offering a variety of ways to help buyers take the leap into home ownership or to up-size to a new home at Portway Place in Halstead. The developer is offering three schemes which will appeal to different purchaser’s, dependent on their circumstances, all created to make the buying and selling process more affordable, painless and stress-free. Located in Halstead, Essex, a beautiful market town, Portway Place is surrounded by wonderful countryside, but still in close proximity of important everyday amenities.
The two, three and four-bedroom properties are in a semi-rural location, being just a mile away from Halstead town centre, with the backdrop of Essex countryside. The homes would be ideal for families, first time buyers and commuters travelling locally or into the capital.
The schemes Bellway is offering to help purchasers are:
Help to Buy, a government-backed scheme, which means buyers can get on the property ladder with as little as a 5% deposit and a 20% loan from the Government which is interest free for five years;
Express Mover helps buyers who have a house to sell; Bellway works with a local estate agent agreeing a selling price and additionally Bellway pays the fees
Part Exchange allows home owners to sell their current property to Bellway and buy a brand-new Bellway home in one simple move. There are no estate agents’ fees or advertising charges and a fair offer is made on the existing home based upon an independent valuation.
Emma Hamlett, Sales Manager from Bellway Essex comments: “Providing a variety of schemes to our buyers allows people a great deal more flexibility when it comes buying a new home. Most people only buy a new home a few times in their lifetime and having options to make the whole moving process simpler often takes away a lot of the stress that can come with buying and selling a house. We have a fabulous choice of homes at Portway Place which means there is something for everyone here in Halstead”.
The Magnolia, a four-bedroom home, has beautiful bay windows which flood in natural light to the separate dining and living rooms. There is an open-plan kitchen/breakfast room with integrated appliances and family room making it the perfect family home with room for everyone. The property also has two en-suite shower rooms, with a modern family bathroom, all fitted with Roca sanitary-ware. The home features a landscaped garden and parking, either with a garage or off-street.
Halstead is a pretty market town, with large array of well-known retailers, however, retaining its unique charm with independent shops. Humes Bakery, a 55-year-old, family-run bakery at the heart of this town, is an example of the traditional shops to be found in on the High Street. The Empire Theatre hosts live music, drama, comedy shows and family shows for evening excursions, with a range of restaurants, bistro-pubs and bars for a choice of great dining experiences. For those seeking outdoor pursuits, Broaks Wood has five miles of walking paths and is abundant in wildlife, shrubs and trees, including some fine examples of Giant Redwoods.
Families will benefit from several well-regarded schools around the development, such as Holy Trinity CE Primary School and Richard de Clere Community Primary School for ages 4-11, all under six minutes away by car. For older pupils, The Ramsey Academy is under a three-minute drive away.

The nearest train station is Braintree, only a fifteen-minute drive from the development which has regular services to Witham, Chelmsford, Stratford and London Liverpool Street; the latter can be reached in just under an hour.
