Crest Nicholson is urging first time buyers who missed out on the stamp duty holiday and are struggling to get a foot onto the property ladder not to miss the Government’s HomeBuy Direct scheme, which is coming to an end in May. Purchasers hoping to buy a new home for summer can take advantage of the incentive and save thousands on one bedroom apartments at Crest Nicholson’s Ingress Park development in Greenhithe, Kent, if they reserve this month.
The HomeBuy Direct initiative** is designed to be a ‘stepping stone’ for home owners. With the scheme, buyers are able to secure themselves a brand new one bed apartment at Ingress Park for just 70% of the property’s asking price upfront making a home priced at £155,000 a more affordable £108,500.
Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “Ingress Park is an ideal development for people hoping to get onto the property ladder whether it is commuters, young couples or families, the development caters to all types of purchaser. The HomeBuy direct initiative has proven extremely popular across all of our developments and we urge people not to miss out as it has to end in May. Moving in time for the summer will also give people the opportunity to make the most of the stunning riverside walks and beautiful green under Ingress Abbey.”
Ingress Park is set in 72 acres of mature grounds, with a regenerated riverside walk and heritage trail. Another unique feature is the grass amphitheatre, a focus for community events and summer picnics.
The latest phase at the development, Papermill Walk, offers properties to suit all types of homebuyer and comprises one and two-bedroom coach houses and apartments, three-bedroom cottages and four-bedroom detached family houses in a range of styles. The design has been carefully created to offer a community way of life, including some desirable detached homes which are highly sought after in the area. Many of the properties on offer have a balcony or terrace for residents to enjoy the views either of the river or across the grounds and rooftops of Ingress Park.
For residents who want the variety of shops and leisure activities that London has to offer without having to travel into the big city are spoilt for choice by the nearby Bluewater shopping centre, which offers a range of high street and designer shops such as Calvin Klein and Hollister, and department stores including John Lewis, House of Fraser and Marks & Spencer. For those not interested in indulging in retail therapy Bluewater has a range of restaurants ranging in cuisine from Carluccios to Wagamamas, a cinema, adventure park and climbing wall.
Ingress Park is extremely well located. As well as Ebbsfleet International Station being only a 17 minute train journey away from London, nearby Greenhithe Station also provides fast and efficient services in to London Bridge (45 minutes), London Victoria (60-90 minutes), London Cannon Street (50 minutes), Waterloo East (43 minutes) and London Charing Cross (50 minutes).
