Good News for Ipswich Property Buyers: New Homes Launched for First Time Buyers and Second Steppers

Crest Nicholson is helping to keep the Ipswich property market moving with the launch of its new phase of homes at Vista. An exclusive collection of 37 traditional two, three and four-bedroom houses is now available to purchase, with prices starting from £175,000. The new phase runs alongside a wildlife corridor.

This new collection follows the highly successful previous phase, of which only two homes remain for sale. The new homes have been launched ahead of schedule in order to meet with local demand and the first homes will be ready to move into this summer.

In further good news for Ipswich buyers, the new homes at Vista are available to purchase with NewBuy, which only requires a 5% deposit, and Part Exchange.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “We had initially planned to launch the new phase in the spring but, having received so many enquiries from buyers at all stages of their home-owning career, we decided to bring the launch forward.

“When designing the homes, we liaised extensively with the local community to ensure that we built homes to meet their varied needs. This certainly seems to have paid off as we’ve received strong interest from a range of purchasers, from first time buyers keen to get onto the first rung of the property ladder, to ‘second steppers’ looking to upsize to a larger home to meet the needs of their growing family. Downsizers looking for a hassle-free and easy-to-look after home are also keen to buy here, as are buy-to-let landlords looking for a savvy investment opportunity.

“We are really proud of the design and mix of the new houses at Vista. Homes have traditional exteriors which blend with the local vernacular and are arranged over either two or three floors. Room sizes are generous, with either the living or dining rooms featuring doors that lead to the good-sized gardens in order to bring the ‘outside in’. All three and four-bedroom houses have ensuite bathrooms to the master bedrooms and some of the larger four-bedroom properties include a utility room. As well as traditional layouts and designs, some of the properties are designed in an l-shape or are on an angle which makes them more unusual and quirky than many other newly-built homes.”

Annette continues: “We’re delighted that we can offer these homes to buyers with either NewBuy or Part Exchange. NewBuy is a 95% mortgage product which means that buyers only need to secure a 5% deposit – a far cry from the 20%-25% that most mortgage lenders require. It’s not just restricted to first time buyers either; existing homeowners who don’t have enough equity in their current home to put down a substantial deposit on a larger home may also use the NewBuy mortgage. Furthermore, they can combine it with Crest Nicholson’s Part Exchange scheme to make the move even easier.”

With Part Exchange, potential purchasers identify the Crest Nicholson property they wish to buy, and then the developer will arrange for three independent local estate agents to value their existing property. Crest Nicholson will make an offer within seven days and once the offer is accepted, customers can reserve their brand new home, with the added benefits of the estate agent’s fees being covered.

Homes at Vista are all finished to the high standard associated with Crest Nicholson and properties are fitted with modern kitchens, complete with a range of integrated appliances including a stainless steel Bosch oven, hob and integrated extractor. Bathrooms and en suites incorporate smart Roca sanitaryware, finished with contemporary chrome accessories, meaning that homes are ready to move into straight away.

Thanks to its location just off Woodbridge Road, the development is only a 15 minute walk to Ipswich’s vibrant town centre, negating the need for a car and is in within the catchment area of St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Northgate high school. Furthermore, Vista is less than two miles from the train station, which provides excellent transport links, with London Liverpool Street just over an hour away.

Prices at Vista start from £ 172,500 for a two-bedroom house, from £222,500 for a three-bedroom house. For more information or to book an appointment please contact Vista on 0870 757 8182 or visit
