Crest Nicholson Paves the Way to Home Ownership in Kings Hill

The plight of first-time buyers and those struggling to move up the property ladder is well documented in the news on a regular basis. At its prestigious Kent development, Lysander Mews at Kings Hill, award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson offers a range of incentive schemes, including the government-backed NewBuy scheme, which has been specifically designed to help new purchasers and existing homeowners who wouldn’t otherwise be able to buy a home.

Purchasing at Lysander Mews with NewBuy couldn’t be easier. With NewBuy, purchasers only need a 5% deposit to get on the ladder; a far cry from the typical 20%-25% deposit still required by many mortgage lenders. With prices starting from £250,000, this means that potential property owners can secure one of the three bedroom homes on offer with a deposit of just £12,500.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “The great thing about NewBuy is that it is available not only to first-time buyers but also to existing homeowners who have little equity in their current property and are unable to raise the necessary funds to upgrade to a larger home that better suits their requirements. Crest Nicholson has always been committed to helping local buyers achieve their home-owning goals; NewBuy is an ideal way in which potential and existing homeowners can move up the property ladder and thereby keep the Kent property market moving. “Kings Hill is an extremely popular location for house buyers. Great transport connections, excellent local schools, including Kings Hill Primary School, The Discovery School and Oakwood Park Grammar School, and a good selection of shops and other local facilities right on residents’ doorsteps has proved a winning combination with a range of purchasers. Crest Nicholson has been building at Kings Hill for over 10 years and a very strong sense of community has developed; an appealing factor, particularly for parents wishing to raise their children in a safe, secure and friendly environment.”

Lysander Mews comprises an attractive, exclusive collection of just 19 two and three-bedroom homes and cottages, which come in a variety of 13 different designs.

Within easy reach of the M20 and A2 and West Malling station for direct trains into London Victoria and Blackfriars, Lysander Mews continues to prove popular with commuters and families alike; there’s a range of good primary and secondary schools in the Kings Hill vicinity, with standards exceeding the national average: Kings Hill School, The Discovery School and Oakwood Park Grammar School. Furthermore there are excellent Grammar Schools in Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone, all within an easy drive of Lysander Mews.

All homes will be finished to the high quality associated with Crest Nicholson. Properties also come complete with the National House Building Council (NHBC) 10 year warranty providing ultimate peace of mind as well as a dedicated customer care service team for two years after the purchase.
