    Our Local Area

    In partnership with The Bowes Museum

    We are pleased to announce the partnership between Taylor Wimpey North East at Bowes Gardens with the nearby Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle.

    Taylor Wimpey North East hope to build a prosperous partnership with the nearby historical attraction to provide a strong foothold within the community of Barnard Castle and the surrounding areas.

    An initial sponsorship to the museum was centred around the current Yves Saint Laurent exhibition - with the museum being chosen ahead of several venues in London, Manchester and Glasgow.

    The donation went towards the resurfacing of the parterre which welcomes visitors to the museum with the sight of perfectly manicured and presented shrubbery and floral designs.

    We are looking forward to working with the museum on projects in the near future and hope that what ventures are on the horizon will benefit the nearby community of Barnard Castle.



    Help to Buy: Equity Loan


    This is one of just a few homes that is still eligible for the current Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme, which is open to both first time buyers and existing homeowners and means you'll need just 5% deposit to buy a new home. From April 2021, the price cap for Help to Buy will depend on the area you live in, and the scheme will be offered exclusively to first time buyers. Find out more here.

    With the current Help to Buy scheme, the Government will lend you up to 20% of the value of your new build home via an equity loan. You will need to secure up to a 75% mortgage and put down a 5% deposit. You’ll own 100% of your home from day one.

    Find out more about how the Help to Buy scheme works.

    Help to Buy: Equity Loan – Terms and conditions apply. Applicants should seek independent financial advice, and get information and guidance on applying for a Help to Buy: Equity Loan at www.helptobuy.gov.uk.
