Selling your first home and moving up the property ladder can be a daunting process, and as property prices continue to rise it can sometimes feel out of reach. Thankfully there is help at hand to make the process easier than you might think.

Crest Nicholson South West’s Sales Executive, Laura Osborne gives advice to so-called “second-steppers” about the help that’s on offer:

“What a lot of people don’t realise is that the Help to Buy equity loan is open to all homebuyers of new build homes, not just first time buyers. Help to Buy is a Government backed initiative that enables homebuyers to purchase a new build home with just a 5% deposit, while 20% of the remaining cost is covered by an interest-free government loan, and the final 75% by a mortgage.

“At Crest Nicholson’s stunning Evolve at Tadpole Garden Village, we have a unique, standout collection of spacious homes available with Help to Buy, perfect for “second-steppers” who want more space and contemporary design in an idyllic location. Making use of the schemes that are available can make your dream home much more affordable.”

Evolve is a unique, contemporary phase within the visionary Tadpole Garden Village development located in the pretty village of Blunsdon near Swindon. Moving away from the traditional house styles seen at previous phases, Tadpole Gate and The Green, the homes at Evolve are unlike anything seen before in Swindon.

With three, four and five bedroom homes available at Evolve, there is a fantastic selection to meet all needs. Each home has been thoughtfully designed, to provide a modern, open plan living space. Boasting spacious rooms complemented by sleek, sophisticated appliances and finishes, these homes are perfect for modern living.  

With large gardens, tree lined streets and the stylish homes on offer, the development is known for its light, leafy and beautiful spaces.  Once complete, Tadpole Garden Village will incorporate 149 acres of green space, playing fields and allotments including a new town park, eight children’s play areas and a common for all to enjoy.

At Evolve at Tadpole Garden Village, the bustling town of Swindon is on your doorstep, with a great selection of stylish bars and cafes and a wide range of shops just a short drive away. Following the launch of the new bus service, the town centre has never been more accessible from Tadpole Garden Village.

Prices for a four-bedroom start from £395,000 or £316,000 with Help to Buy. For more information, visit our sales and marketing suite open daily between 10am and 5pm. Or you can visit or email
