It's time to make your move to the Cotswolds - for less than you think

Using Help to Buy* could mean your Cotswold move is very much in your reach.

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 Bourton Chase in Bourton on the Water.

The final phase of 2., 3 & 4 bedroom homes at 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. 

Bourton on the Water is a charming yet thriving village, offering the best of Cotswold country living. Bourton Chase still has the benefit of being relatively close to Cheltenham, Oxford and Swindon for commuting ease.

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 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.”

“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.
