Crest Nicholson unveils new show apartment at Firepool Lock in Taunton, perfect for first time buyers

First time buyers in Taunton are being encouraged to take a tour of the brand new two bedroom show apartment recently opened to the public at Crest Nicholson’s award-winning Firepool Lock development.

The contemporary two bedroom Bloomsbury collection apartments are finished to the highest specification and are proving extremely popular with buyers. Starting at under £150,000, these delightful apartments are perfect for those looking to take advantage of the government’s Help to Buy Scheme. Moreover, they also appeal to investors offering yields of up to five per cent.

Close to the train station and just a short walk into the town centre, Firepool Lock is perfectly located for those looking to be at the heart of the action in the beautiful market town of Taunton. The town is in the midst of extensive regeneration, particularly at the new vibrant, waterfront community at Firepool.

The area is set for further success following the recent announcement that the Northern Inner Distributor Road is now scheduled to open in Spring / Summer 2016. The £21.8 million link road, which will connect the east and the west of Taunton to reduce congestion in the town and open access to development sites including Firepool, has been underway since July 2013. 

Rebecca Gripton, Sales Manager at Crest Nicholson, said: “Firepool Lock is a stunning development tailored into the bend of the river and many of our homes boast beautiful, scenic views overlooking the newly regenerated cultural quarter adjacent to the waterfront.

The modern architecture of the development marries with contemporary yet functional living space design, really setting these homes apart as the crème de la crème of the South West.  What’s more, with our Help To Buy Scheme, homebuyers can afford more space than they think.” 

Prices for a two bedroom apartment in the Bloomsbury collection at Firepool Lock start from £149,000 that’s just £119,200 with Help to Buy. For more information please visit the on-site Sales and Marketing suite (open daily from 10am to 5pm), call 0845 894 3373, email or visit
