Taylor Wimpey has an impressive range of new-build homes for sale in Nottinghamshire in the East Midlands, including apartments and family houses - many of which are within easy commuting distance of the thriving county city of Nottingham.
In the attractive village of Ravenshead, about 10 miles from Nottingham, Chaworth Gardens is ideal for first-time buyers and families, with a collection of two-bedroom apartments and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses priced from £96,796 to £120,995. Selected plots are available through the Government-backed FirstBuy scheme, which helps first-time buyers by providing an equity loan (interest free for five years) to cover up to 20% of the purchase price, reducing the size of the deposit and mortgage required to secure the new home. The village is a sociable community with lots of active sports and leisure clubs, and it is home to several shops and pubs, a leisure centre, and two excellent primary schools, while there's a secondary school in the neighbouring village of Rainworth.
In the village of Rainworth itself, about 15 miles from Nottingham city centre, Rufford Grange is made up of a blend of three- and four-bedroom homes priced from £114,396 to £187,995. Again, the village is well equipped to cater for residents' everyday needs, while there are further schools and amenities in the nearby larger town of Mansfield. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, Rufford Grange is close to Sherwood Forest, the Peak District, and lovely Newstead Abbey for leisure time, while commuters benefit from being close to the M1 and within easy reach of the A1 from Newark.
In the leafy area of Mapperley, 10 miles from Nottingham city centre, Lime Tree Gardens is made up of three- to five-bedroom family homes priced from £162,995 to £199,995. With local schools for all ages; a good range of shops and amenities nearby; a golf course within a mile of the development; and lovely countryside all around - Lime Tree Gardens has plenty to offer families looking for a home within easy commuting distance of Nottingham. Add to this the good range of incentive schemes available, and the development looks set to prove popular with a broad selection of buyers. There is a 48-hour Part Exchange scheme to entice buyers who have an existing home to sell before they can move, for example - plus the NewBuy 95% mortgage scheme, which enables buyers to secure their new home with a deposit of just 5%.
Moving up the price scale, in the semi-rural village suburb of Wilford, just five miles from Nottingham city centre, Ruddington Place is made up of a range of spacious, high-quality, three- to five-bedroom family homes priced from £284,995 to £349,995. Enjoying a tranquil setting near the River Trent, Wilford has a lively village atmosphere, and an excellent range of amenities including shops, pubs, nature reserves, sporting facilities, and schools for all ages - yet it is also conveniently close to all of the businesses, shops and attractions of Nottingham city centre.
Finally, Taylor Wimpey has a few new Nottinghamshire developments in the pipeline, including Kings Acre in Clipstone, less than 20 miles from Nottingham, where there will be a collection of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes; and Sapphire Court in Mansfield, 15 miles from Nottingham, which promises a range of three- and four-bedroom family homes.
