Rowden Court launch attracts first time buyers

Both first time buyers and investors have been showing a great deal of interest in our latest Chippenham development, Rowden Court, since it was launched at the offices of Allen & Harris in mid- September, according to the agents.

The development, located on the western edge of the market town of Chippenham, features 31 homes, ranging in size from one- to four-bed.  

Branch manager, Steven Harrington, said: “First time buyers in particular are very attracted by the beautiful kitchens and bathrooms in the new homes at Rowden Court, and especially excited about being able to select finishes that appeal to their own taste if they reserve early enough.

“They are also motivated by their eligibility to buy under the government’s Help to Buy* scheme, which means they could move in with a deposit of just £5,200.

“The new homes at Rowden Court are ideal for the first-time buyer, downsizer, growing family or buyers who are starting over again, where minimal maintenance and energy are priorities.  All homes have been designed to maximise energy efficiency and provide a luxurious range of kitchen and bathroom facilities.”

The homes at Rowden Court offer a practical, efficient and flexible use of space in a secluded yet open setting, with easy access to all that Chippenham has to offer.

A fast-growing market town with a comprehensive range of facilities and leisure pursuits, Chippenham provides quick access to the M5 motorway (via Junction16), and also offers fast and direct rail links to London Paddington.

*Under the Help to Buy scheme the Government will lend up to 20 per cent on properties worth up to £600,000 through an equity loan. The purchaser has to place a five percent deposit and fund the remaining cost of the property with a mortgage giving them 100% ownership of their home.

For example when purchased under Help to Buy, a one-bedroom house at Rowden Court will cost £130,000 (a 20 per cent reduction off the £104,000 list price through the equity loan) with purchasers needing a deposit of £5,200.
