Article image House-hunters in Somerset who are looking to make that all-important move onto or up the property ladder will find all the help they need at Crest Nicholson’s Bishop’s Brook development in Wells.

Crest Nicholson’s support of the Help to Buy scheme is already helping buyers to not only afford their dream home for right now but also reduce the number of steps homeowners need to take before buying their ‘forever family home’.  

Help to Buy is available on new-build homes up to a value of £600,000. The initiative enables homebuyers to own their own home with just five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining cost of the property is funded by a 20 per cent equity loan from the Government that is interest free for the first five years.

Laura Osborne, Senior Executive at Crest Nicholson, said: “Help to Buy has been very popular at Bishop’s Brook, and it has helped many people buy their dream home in the area. Bishops Brook has a wide range of quality properties on offer that are ideal for first time buyers, professional couples, young families, investors and those downsizing from a larger home.  We would encourage homebuyers to visit the site and our beautiful show home to see for themselves what this great development has to offer.”

About Bishop’s Brook
The exquisite collection of high-specification two, three, four and five bedroom homes, has been stunningly designed in a traditional style to reflect the character of the surrounding architecture, while still offering all the modern comforts you’d expect with a new build home. 
Sat in the heart of rural Somerset, in the historic city of Wells, Bishop’s Brook will also see the restoration of the Keward Brook and wildlife corridor that surrounds the development, along with the creation of a new recreational play space, providing a great environment for public enjoyment.
Using Help to Buy, prices at Bishops Brook currently start from £172,000 for a two bedroom house with parking and £380,000 for a four bedroom detached house.
