Last chance to buy one- and two-bed Pewsey homes

People looking for one- and two-bedroom homes in a rural location yet within commuting distance of London, need to move quickly if they want to snap up one of the remaining homes at Redcliffe Homes’ Whatley Drive development in Pewsey, Wiltshire.

Only one two-bedroom house is available on this development which mainly features three-, four-bedroom and five-bedroom houses – all now sold.  The remaining two-bedroom house – on the market at £245,000 – occupies a choice position on the edge of the development, not overlooked to the front or the back, with a good-sized garden and two car-parking spaces.

The remaining three one-bedroom apartments are available on the first and second floors of Whatley House.  The apartments, three of just six built at Whatley Drive, are Redcliffe’s response to local people’s need to get on the housing ladder, and offer generously-sized lounge/diner, separate fully-fitted kitchen and a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes.

Lorraine Kendrick, Redcliffe Homes’ sales and marketing manager, said: “Because of the rural location, people can get an apartment here at a fraction of the price of something similar in Bath, Bristol or London, which is only one hour away by train.

“Since Whatley Drive is just a short walk from the station, we are getting a lot of interest from people who work away from Pewsey, but want to keep their roots in this area.”

According to Lorraine, the Whatley House apartments are perfect for first-time buyers, those making a new start in life, for buy-to-let, or even for those who have homes abroad and want a bolt hole in the UK.  

A furnished show apartment on the ground floor of Whatley House illustrates fully the potential of these high specification apartments.

Lorraine said: “The government’s Help to Buy scheme is available on all the properties at Whatley Drive, and provides buyers with the chance to own their own home at a monthly payment that could be cheaper than renting a similar home.”

The scheme will lend up to 20 per cent of the value of the property through an equity loan.  The purchaser then only needs a five percent deposit and to fund the remaining cost of the property with a mortgage giving them full ownership of their home.
