EXPERIENCE THE BENEFITS OF MODERN LIVING IN A NEW TAYLOR WIMPEY HOME AT SOMERDALE

EXPERIENCE THE BENEFITS OF MODERN LIVING IN A NEW TAYLOR WIMPEY HOME AT SOMERDALE

Home-hunters in Bristol currently looking to step on or up the property ladder are being urged to discover the benefits of buying a new three-storey home at Somerdale, Taylor Wimpey’s sought‑after development in Keynsham.

The handsome ‘Gladstone’ features a light and airy kitchen/dining room with double doors to the garden, and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to a spacious lounge complete with Juliet balcony, a well-proportioned bedroom and a main bathroom, while the top floor comprises the lavish en-suite master bedroom and two further bedrooms. The property also benefits from an integral garage and allocated parking.

Danielle Heard, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Bristol, says: “The ‘Gladstone’ is a fantastic contemporary property with innovative use of space across all three floors that’s perfect for growing families – and it enjoys a wonderful location within our stunning Somerdale development.

“Anyone who is interested should get in touch without delay, as we don’t expect these gorgeous homes will be available for long!”

The leading housebuilder is offering the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme at Somerdale, enabling first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to secure a government loan for up to 20% of their new home’s full price – so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a deposit as low as 5%.

Help to Buy is available on new-build homes up to the value of £600,000 and there is no salary cap for customers who take advantage of the scheme.

There’s a wonderful choice of three and four-bedroom homes currently available at Somerdale, priced from £345,000 and £402,000 respectively.

Taylor Wimpey’s Somerdale development is a unique project which has transformed the former Cadbury chocolate factory site in Keynsham.

The newly-opened Somerdale Pavilion provides a vital focal point for the local community with five flexible function rooms, a large sports bar with a skittle alley and a multi-activity room for community groups.

Alongside the Somerdale Pavilion, residents at Somerdale are able to enjoy a new range of community facilities including a new gym, FA-standard floodlit football pitch – one of 13 full-size pitches available at the development – plus two junior football pitches, four cricket pitches and a nine-hole golf course, netball, bowling club  and tennis courts.

A local centre is also included in the masterplan for the site, including retail units, a medical centre, a riverside café and a care home, as well as a new 210-place primary school and 30-place nursery.

A riverside walk will be created with a cycle/pedestrian bridge over the River Avon, while substantial areas of public open space, including a wetland area for wildlife, are to be established. Some existing factory buildings will be used to create 120,000 sq ft of employment space.

Keynsham has its own railway station just a short stroll away for direct services to Bristol, Southampton and London Waterloo, while Bristol city centre lies only six miles from home. The development is also well located for access to the A4, the M32 and the M4.

To find out more about stepping on or up the property ladder in style at Somerdale, property-seekers can visit the Sales and Information Centre, located off Somerdale Road, Keynsham, Bristol, BS31 2AU, and open daily from 11am to 5.30pm (Mondays from 1pm to 5.30pm). Alternatively, the Sales Executive can be contacted on 0117 370 7231.
