Catherine Wheatley and Jagdish Takher are happily settling into their first home together as a family – thanks to five star housebuilder David Wilson Homes and Help to Buy.
The couple had owned a flat before, with shared ownership, but had recently moved to Wiltshire from Leeds and had only been able to rent – until they visited Mill Brook.
The David Wilson Homes development, in the market town of Westbury, features a selection of three and four bedroom homes, surrounded by beautiful Salisbury plain.
“We were renting in Westbury and wanted to stay here because family were nearby and we love the area – but we never thought we could afford to buy a property,” said Catherine (35). “David Wilson Homes helped our dreams come true. We also used Help to Buy to aid affordability.”
The Help to Buy scheme is available on all new-build homes up to £600,000 at Mill Brook. Buyers can become owners with just a five per cent deposit of the property value of their new home. Many lenders are able to offer a loan-to-value mortgage because the UK Government provides a guarantee of up to 15 per cent.
“It all worked out perfectly for us and we absolutely love our new home. We couldn’t be happier here,” added Jagdish (29). “The development itself is very attractive, with easy access to local amenities. And our home fits in perfectly with the other house designs around us.”
Current availability at Mill Book includes the three bedroom Cannington, priced from £300,000, and the four bedroom Bayswater, Cornell, Exeter, Holden, Chelworth, Cannington and Cornell homes, priced from £365,000.
Mill Brook offers the best of both worlds, surrounded by countryside but within walking distance of the town centre and its pubs, restaurants and shops. There are also schools – including Bitham Brook Primary School – nearby, making it perfect for families.
