New homes released at popular housing development in Wilstock Village

The final phase of homes at a new village-style development in North Petherton has been launched, with strong interest reported by the sales team.

Wilstock Village, which is being built by five-star builder, Bloor Homes South West, has been designed to create a new country village located by North Petherton and is situated on the edge of a new landscaped country park. This final phase will see the construction of 248 new homes, with a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom properties suitable for everyone from first-time buyers, to couples, families and downsizers.

Sara Parker, Regional Sales Director for Bloor Homes South West, said “We are delighted to launch the final phase of our hugely popular Wilstock Village development. There are a variety of home sizes and styles, making this an attractive location for prospective house hunters.

“Homes at the development are available to purchase with Help to Buy and we have already seen high use of the scheme here, with some 82% of buyers making use of this Government-backed equity loan scheme to help them secure the home of their dreams.

“Not just available to first-time buyers, Help to Buy enables buyers to secure a new home with just a five percent deposit and a 75 percent mortgage. The remaining 20 percent is provided as a Government equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years. The scheme is currently available on homes up to the value of £600,000. Last year alone, 52,057 homes in England were purchased using Help to Buy.

“We know that for many people, saving sufficient funds for a deposit can be the stumbling block to taking that first step onto the property ladder. Help to Buy can offer an attractive solution.”

The last phase of the development, which was completed in November 2017, proved popular with local buyers who are keen to bag a home in this friendly and welcoming new rural community.

The homes have been designed and built with meticulous attention to detail and incorporate traditional craftsmanship and high specification finishes. Mature trees and hedgerows are being maintained and lush, green countryside views abound. With its strong community feel and excellent commuter links close by, this next phase at Wilstock Village is sure to prove popular with house hunters looking to enjoy all that Somerset countryside living has to offer.
