Family homes spark surge in interest
Taylor Wimpey North East is reporting a surge in interest in the larger properties at its The Potteries development, in Corbridge, after a number of families have taken the plunge after viewing the builder’s popular Stirling and Sherbourne homes.
The development, off Jameson Drive, features an exclusive range of four- and five-bedroom homes, ideal for families and upsizers alike.
Karl Morton, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North East, explains: “We’ve certainly seen a great appetite for family homes in 2016, with prospective buyers in the region seeking the space and style that new build homes have to offer.
“Our Stirling and Sherbourne homes in particular offer growing families everything they need for flexible living in a modern layout.”
Eligible buyers also have the opportunity to utilise the Government-backed Help to buy scheme, which enables customers to reserve a new home, with just a five per cent deposit.
Alternatively, through Part Exchange, Taylor Wimpey helps customers to move by buying their existing property.
Karl continues: “The Potteries is much more than just a housing development, it’s a lifestyle. Residents can enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding village, while Northumberland National Park is within easy reach for outdoor activities.”
Furthermore, with a choice of schools in the area, and Newcastle city centre just 30 minutes away, the development offers great convenience for busy families during the school run, or the daily commute to work.
Karl concludes: “I’d encourage anybody interested in the Stirling and Sherbourne homes to head down to the development, where our sales team is on site to provide further information about the financial schemes, and answer any queries.”
Corbridge kids get creative outdoors with cash donation
National homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey, has supported Corbridge C of E First School, with a cash boost towards outdoor activities to enhance its early years’ curriculum.
The £500 donation helped the school to build sand pits and water trays to help pupils develop social skills and teambuilding, as well as a water pump that will teach science in a fun and educational way.
Jennifer Ainsley, head teacher at Corbridge C of E First School, comments: “These resources have had a huge impact on our students’ development, enabling them to improve key skills such as communication and teamwork through creative activities.
“We’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey for the extremely generous donation. It’s fantastic to be partnered with such a high-profile company and we’re thrilled that it has shown an interest in our school.”
Corbridge C of E First School is located on St Helen’s Lane, Corbridge, and has 163 pupils, ranging from ages three to nine.
Karl Morton, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North East, says: “Our newly-launched development, The Potteries, is located just minutes away from the school, so we’re aware of the enlightening work it does to educate younger members of our community.
“We were keen to help the local children in any way we could and we’re delighted to offer a helping hand to Corbridge C of E. We hope the pupils enjoy their new equipment.”
