Only a handful of apartments are left at Crest Nicholson’s highly sought-after Base development – and a range of buying incentives are available.

With only five two-bedroom apartments for sale at this successful development, those looking for a stylish, contemporary home for less should act quickly as this is the last chance to buy.

The apartments in this current and final phase of Base provide an ideal, hassle-free home for busy professionals and first-time buyers. All homes include fully fitted kitchens with a comprehensive range of integrated Bosch appliances including a fridge/freezer and washer dryer – easing the burden of starting from scratch and taking the stress out of moving home.

With prices starting at just £220,000, each apartment benefits from lift access, allocated parking and private balconies or outside space.

Also on sale is the stunning two-bedroom show apartment, priced at £220,000. This is ready to move into and complete with all fixtures, fittings, furniture and also benefits from a good sized balcony looking out across a landscaped open space and parking; this really is an opportunity not to be missed.

Annette Cole, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments: “With a fabulous location in the heart of Brentwood and less than 500 metres from Brentwood Train Station it’s little surprise we have only a handful of homes left for sale at Base. We’d encourage any interested buyers to act now to avoid missing out on their dream home.”

The Government’s new Help to Buy shared equity scheme is available at Base, enabling buyers to secure their apartment for 75% of its full price, with only a 5% deposit. With Help to Buy on an apartment worth £225,000, the buyer will pay a 5% deposit of £11,250 and is left to arrange a mortgage of 75% (£168,750). The Government will provide an interest free loan for the remaining 20% (£45,000), with no interest payable for five years.

Another option is Crest Nicholson’s EasyBuy initiative. Purchasers can own 100% of their home straight away and pay only 75% of the price. No rent or interest is paid for the first five years and the outstanding loan amount is paid back as a percentage of the property’s value at any time up to resale or after 10 years, whichever comes sooner.

Jackie Fullarton, partner at Sacre Associates LLP, said: “There is no doubt that Help to Buy and similar schemes are giving a real boost to Essex home-buyers. We’ve already had a great deal of interest in this exciting initiative and expect it will grow as people realise they can not only buy with a much lower deposit than they might have expected, but can also access lower mortgage finance.”
