Article image Award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson is urging homebuyers to move quickly if they want to secure one of the two remaining homes at its popular Silk Meadows development in Taunton. 

Just one and a half miles from Somerset’s bustling shopping capital, Taunton, and a short drive from the breath-taking Quantock Hills, Silk Meadows offers an appealing blend of town and country living. 

One of the three bedroom houses currently available to buy is a three storey Wesley townhouse. The property offers an open-plan kitchen/ breakfast room with French doors leading onto the garden, creating a real hub for the family home. Meanwhile the spacious living room with characterful bay window is located on the first floor, providing a distinct space for relaxation.  

Crest Nicholson’s Wesley house boasts three double bedrooms, including an impressive master suite with fitted double wardrobe and en-suite shower room. There is also the added benefit of a separate study which would make an excellent nursery. 

Under the Help to Buy scheme, prices at Silk Meadows currently start from £172,000 for a three bedroom Hickstead house and £188,800 for a three bedroom Wesley townhouse with integral garage. The scheme enables homebuyers to own their home for just 80 percent of the purchase price with a deposit of as little as five per cent. The remaining 20 per cent of the property price is lent to the purchaser by the Government and is interest free for the first five years.
