If you’re looking for a four-bedroom home in Ipswich that is flexible enough to cater for the demands of today’s modern lifestyle, then why not start your search at Vista, a Crest Nicholson Eastern development, located on Woodbridge Road. Whether you’re a large family looking for lots of space or a professional looking to work from home, our four-bedroom properties here offer the perfect solution. And, with Government-backed FirstBuy scheme, purchasers can own a four-bedroom Aldeburgh home for just £199,600.

FirstBuy is designed to help struggling first time buyers onto the property ladder in a way that they can afford. The initiative means that purchasers will own 100% of their home for just 80% of the price as Crest Nicholson and the Homes and Communities Agency offer a loan of up to 20% of the full purchase price**. The loan is interest free for the first five years, after which a low rate of 1.75% is payable. Loans must be repaid when the home is sold. 

Spread over three floors, the Aldeburgh house type has two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor – this space is ideal for anyone with an elderly parent, or an older child living at home, as one of the bedrooms could be easily used as a living room or converted into a kitchen/living area, meaning the whole of the floor would be an enclave away from the rest of the house. On the first floor is a spacious living room, convenient cloakroom and an open-plan kitchen and dining room. Finally the second floor is home to the final two bedrooms and a bathroom, with the master enjoying its own walk-in wardrobe.

The Stanton, meanwhile, is also spread over three floors. It features a cloakroom and utility room on the ground floor, making it ideal for those who like to spend lots of time outdoors, as they can leave their muddy shoes downstairs. The first floor features a living room, open-plan kitchen and dining room and the fourth bedroom, which could be easily used as a home office. On the second floor are the family bathroom and remaining three bedrooms, with the master benefiting from its own en suite.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson, said: “We always design our homes with practicality in mind, and we recognise that today’s modern purchasers don’t necessarily fit into the traditional home-owner stereotypes, so it’s important for us to build homes that are flexible spaces. That’s exactly what we’ve achieved with our four-bedroom homes, so no matter if you need space for an elderly parent or for more storage, our homes will fit the bill.

“Not only that – our homes are ready to move in to, with light fittings and flooring, and even landscaped gardens included in the price; not to mention our incentives on offer, such as FirstBuy, which all combine to take the meaning of ‘value for money’ to the extreme.”

House-hunters have the chance to take advantage of either Part Exchange, ideal for anyone with a home to sell, as Crest will purchase their old home from them, or the Government-backed NewBuy scheme, a 95-per-cent mortgage scheme, for those who are struggling to save enough money, as they are only required to raise a five-per-cent deposit.

Situated on top of a hill, the homes offer high spec luxury living in an attractive setting. At one end of the site lies a wildlife corridor with series of water features to create a peaceful and beautiful environment.

The development is just 1.5 miles from the hustle and bustle of Ipswich’s vibrant town centre. Furthermore, it is fewer than two miles from the train station from which London Liverpool Street is just over an hour away, making a Vista home the perfect choice for commuters.

Prices for the four-bedroom homes at Vista start from £249,500 and available to purchase with FirstBuy for £199,600. For more information or to book an appointment please call the Sales & Marketing Suite, open daily from 10am-5pm, on 0870 757 8182 or e-mail Alternatively, visit
