Taylor Wimpey has a wide range of new homes for sale in Shropshire in the West Midlands, both in major towns such as Telford and historic Shrewsbury, and in smaller settlements such as Shifnal and Wem.
Just a few miles from Telford's centre, The Meadows - the second phase at Taylor Wimpey's successful Millennium Village community - offers a collection of two- to four-bedroom eco-friendly contemporary homes. From apartments to family houses, all of these energy-efficient properties have spacious interiors, large windows, and outdoor living areas such as balconies or gardens, while many also enjoy a rural outlook. Priced from as little as £103,996 with the government-backed FirstBuy scheme first-time buyers only need a 5% deposit and can take out an equity loan of up to 20%, which is interest-free for five years. This means buyers would only need a 75% mortgage, but would own 100% of their new home.
A wider selection of new homes in Telford is available at Castle Meadows, which is home to 175 new properties ranging from one-bedroom luxury apartments up to five-bedroom detached houses. Priced from £91,995 to £184,995, appealing to a wide range of budgets and buyers, both FirstBuy and 95% mortgages are available at this development.
