With various financial obstacles removed or substantially reduced, home ownership has become much easier to achieve at Orion Homes’ Mayfield Gardens development in Wyke.
Thanks to an exemption announced in the Autumn Budget, first-time buyers are no longer required to pay stamp duty on any property valued up to £300,000 and the two remaining three bedroom homes at Mayfield Gardens are well below that figure with plot 6 priced at £184,995 and plot 1 priced at £189,995. Orion Homes have announced their own money-saving measures with some outstanding incentives on each property, including a free washing machine and tumble dryer for first-time buyers as well as up to £1,000 towards legal fees for all purchasers. That leaves removal costs as the only significant moving fee required to start on the property ladder at this sought-after address within easy reach of Leeds, Bradford and Halifax.
Sales negotiator, Kay Patefield, said: “The stamp duty amounts to almost £1,200 with the purchase of plot 6 and almost £1,300 with the purchase of plot 1. If you’re a first-time buyer, those costs are now out of the equation and, with the addition of our legal fees and appliances offers, the two remaining properties are particularly attractive options as starter homes. Both properties are also available with an equity loan from the Help to Buy scheme which reduces initial prices to £147,996 for plot 6 and £151,996 for plot 1.”
Each remaining property is a three storey Norfolk house type. This spacious three bedroom design has an impressive ground floor comprising entrance hall, lounge and open-plan kitchen/dining room overlooking the rear garden through French doors. Its first floor includes family bathroom, two good-sized bedrooms and a study provides alternative use as a nursery or walk-in wardrobe. The top floor features a secluded master bedroom with en-suite.
