Crest Nicholson showcases new houses for Taunton with launch of new show home


Award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicolson is proud to announce the launch of its new Fitzrovia show home at Firepool Lock in Taunton; a landmark development of new homes that is integral to the ambitious Project Taunton regeneration scheme.

Situated along the Bridgewater and Taunton canal, Firepool Lock’s Fitzrovia show home is an impressive three storey, four bedroom house that any homebuyer would be proud of. Open to the public daily from 10am to 5pm, this modern and stylish house boasts large picture windows to the first and second floors and the kitchen has beautiful French doors that open onto the garden. The living room on the first floor is spacious and light, and the property’s master bedroom on the top floor comes with its own en-suite shower room and two floor-to-ceiling windows, providing added wow factor.

Not only are houses at Firepool Lock beautifully designed to a high specification, but they are also very affordable. The Fitzrovia is currently available to buy from £191,960 with Help to Buy*, a Government-backed initiative which enables purchasers to own 100% of their home for just 80% of the price and requires only 5% deposit.

Laura Osborne, Senior Sales Manager Crest Nicholson, said: “Firepool Lock is situated in a superb location with easy access to Taunton town centre and excellent transport links, and yet has a real ‘countryside’ feel thanks to its views over the canal. We’re really excited to be launching our Fitzrovia show home and to be showcasing more of our fantastic flagship, design-led homes. We’d welcome all potential purchasers to pop in, have a look around and speak to our sales advisors about how they can own this dream house.”

Project Taunton is an ambitious multimillion pound scheme that will ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for Taunton by boosting business opportunities, improving transport infrastructure, initiating high quality developments, fostering sustainable communities and nurturing Taunton's green areas. With its many business opportunities, up and coming status and aim of creating numerous new job opportunities, Firepool Lock truly is at the heart of Somerset’s most promising and exciting town.

Help to Buy prices at Firepool Lock currently start from £111,960 for a two bedroom Barnes apartment, £127,960 for a two bedroom Hanover coach house, £256,000 for a three bedroom Chiswick waterside villa and £191,960 for a four bedroom Fitzrovia town house.
