With the average age of first time buyers continuing to rise, it is ever apparent that purchasers need all the help they can possibly get to enable them step onto the property ladder. Award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson is offering homebuyers the chance to do just this by taking advantage of the government backed HomeBuy Direct scheme**at a selection of its properties on the stunning development, The Royal Gallery in Kingston.
HomeBuy Direct is an initiative designed to be a ‘stepping stone’ for home owners. With the scheme, buyers are able to secure their brand new home at The Royal Gallery for just 70% of the property’s asking price upfront, making a one bedroom apartment priced at £220,000, a more affordable £154,000 with HomeBuy Direct.
Chris Warner, Sales & Marketing Director for Crest Nicholson South, said: “The Royal Gallery has been a very successful development of ours and HomeBuy Direct is a fantastic initiative, offering hundreds of buyers the purchasing power to invest in a home of their own. The properties at The Royal Gallery are ideal for first time buyers due to the development’s location, situated just a short walk away from Kingston Train Station which provides excellent links into Central London. It is also close to the town centre and local amenities.”
Situated on Skerne Road, The Royal Gallery comprises 78 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom penthouses all with spacious interiors. Apartments benefit from either a terrace or balcony and a selection of penthouses also feature large roof top terraces, ideal for green fingered purchasers who can grow their own plants and vegetables as well as enjoy the outdoor space.
Kitchens come complete with stylish units, electric ovens and brushed steel Bosch appliances, including an electric oven with chimney hood and gas hob. Penthouses boast granite worktops, double electric ovens and stylish glass chimney extractor hoods. Bathrooms and en-suite bathrooms to master bedrooms also include elegant Hansgrohe fittings.
