The Cotswolds constantly tops the list of perfect locations to live in the UK and Bloor Homes is offering the opportunity to buy a beautifully designed new home at Fairford Gate in Fairford and Bourton Chase in Bourton on the Water.

The selection of three and four bedroom houses that are currently available in Fairford and in Bourton on Water will certainly appeal to anyone who is looking to move to an idyllic Cotswold town.  

From first time buyers to those looking to downsize, the developments are at carefully considered locations and offer plenty of open green spaces.  At Fairford Gate and Bourton Chase, each of the homes will have a mix of render and the instantly-recognisable Cotswold stone.  

The interiors of Bloor Homes are finished to high specification and include Bosch appliances such as fridge freezers and electric ovens and the spacious open-plan living for which Bloor has become renowned.  Several of the homes at Fairford Gate also have a unique feature, a ‘bonus-room’ over the garage, which offers a flexible living space that can be adapted to suit the lifestyle of the buyer.

Situated on the banks of the River Coln, Fairford is an idyllic market town in the heart of the Cotswolds, whilst Bourton on the Water is a charming yet thriving village.  Whilst they offer the best in country living, both have the benefits of being relatively close to Swindon, making them ideally placed for those who commute.  

To date the sales team has seen a great deal of interest from those who are keen to take advantage of the Help to Buy scheme available at the developments.  

Paula Gwilliam, Senior Sales Manager for Bloor Homes Western said; “The homes at both Fairford Gate and Bourton Chase appeal to a variety of buyers and we are pleased to be able to offer Help to Buy to all purchasers, not just first time buyers.”

“Prices are from £203,000 and as the maximum purchase to qualify for Help to Buy is £600,000, every home we are marketing at these developments is potentially eligible for the scheme.  There are no restrictions on the size of property or bedroom numbers, from our stylish terraced homes to our superior detached family homes.”

Buyers can secure their new build with a minimum 5% deposit to qualify.  The government will lend between 10% and 20% of the value of the property.  This means the buyer will only need to secure up to a 75% mortgage from a bank or building society.  

The remaining 20 per cent of the purchase price is provided as an equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years, meaning buyers can benefit from a smaller deposit and lower monthly mortgage payments.

*Help to Buy price represents 80% of a purchase price. Help to Buy, Home Exchange and all Bloor Homes’ incentives and schemes are subject to terms and conditions and are available on selected developments and selected plots only. Help to Buy is only available on developments in England, up to the value of £600,000 subject to contract, status and eligibility
