Award-winning developer, Crest Nicholson, has announced it will launch its brand new Kegworth Gate development in Leicestershire, in Spring 2020. Located on Long Lane in the attractive village of Kegworth, the development will comprise a contemporary collection of 179 three and four bedroom homes.

Ideal for first time buyers, young professionals and families, the houses have been carefully crafted offering a range of flexible layouts to suit the needs of the purchaser. The modern homes have been thoughtfully designed to reflect the character of the natural surrounds, featuring a high specification throughout.

Bonnie Campbell, Sales Manager, Crest Nicholson Midlands, commented: “We are delighted to announce that Crest Nicholson will be returning to Leicestershire in 2020, with the launch of Kegworth Gate. We expect the development to be popular with families who are attracted to the sought-after area of Kegworth and want to enjoy the amenities of the village on their doorstep. Interest has been high ahead of the launch, so we recommend potential purchasers register their interest as soon as possible to secure their plot of choice.”


The government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme is available on a selection of properties at the development, allowing home hunters to buy with just a 5% deposit. Under the scheme, the government offers an interest free equity loan of up to 20% of the cost of the home, meaning that only a 75% mortgage is needed to make up the rest.


Selected homes at Kegworth Gate will also be available with Crest Nicholson’s SmoothMove scheme, taking the hassle out of selling your current home. SmoothMove takes care of everything from getting the purchasers current house valued, to booking viewing times and paying estate agents’ fees. Alternatively, for those that have home already to sell, buyers may be eligible to use the Part Exchange scheme, helping purchasers sell their existing home with a guaranteed cash buyer before moving.


Situated in quaint village of Kegworth, residents at Kegworth Gate will enjoy a range of amenities within walking distance, including convenience stores, a bakery, pharmacy, hairdressers, doctor’s surgery and a range of popular pubs and restaurants to dine in.
