Date: Thursday 31 May 2012

Taylor Wimpey is laying on a special treat for customers at its NR1 homes development in Norwich this Jubilee bank holiday – the chance to live like royalty for the weekend!

Anyone who reserves one of the stunning one and two-bedroom apartments now on sale at NR1 between Saturday 2nd and Monday 4th June will be rewarded with a luxury getaway in London* as a special memento of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

This fabulous gift for two people includes a guided tour around Buckingham Palace followed by afternoon tea at the Ritz, tickets to a West End show plus an overnight stay and breakfast at a top hotel, with return train travel also thrown in.

Property-seekers visiting NR1 during the bank holiday weekend can also take a look around Taylor Wimpey’s beautiful ‘Cool Britannia’ themed show apartment, and discover the wonderful lifestyle they could be enjoying at this stylish development of homes in Norwich.

Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We’re celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in style this bank holiday weekend at NR1 – the jewel in the crown of developments of flats in Norwich – with this exclusive special offer just for our customers.

“Anyone looking for a chic and well-appointed apartment in Norwich city centre should pay us a visit between Saturday 2nd and Monday 4th June, and make sure they don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!”

The Jubilee bank holiday coincides with an important date for NR1, which is expected to have been topped-out – a traditional construction term referring to the completion of the highest point of the building – by Saturday 2nd June.

There’s a superb selection of one and two-bedroom apartments currently available to purchase at the development, with prices starting at £132,995 and £152,995 respectively.

Selected plots can be accessed by qualifying first-time buyers for 80% of their purchase price under the FirstBuy scheme – that means from £106,395 for a one-bedroom apartment and £122,395 for a two-bedroom design.

Alternatively, the NewBuy initiative lets credit-worthy purchasers secure their new home at NR1 with a 95% mortgage, whether they are first-time buyers or have a property to sell. Full details of both incentives are available at the development.

Apartments at NR1 each feature a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room, good-sized bedrooms and a bathroom off the internal entrance hallway, while two-bedroom plots include en-suite facilities to master bedrooms. All apartments also benefit from attractive private balconies with access from both the living area and bedroom.

Superbly located in landscaped surroundings and appointed to present fantastic views over the River Wensum, NR1 offers city living at its best.

The Riverside leisure and entertainment complex is right on the doorstep and Norwich’s main shopping district is just a short walk away, with the home of Premier League football club Norwich City only a stone’s throw from the development.

Home to the renowned University of East Anglia, the city also has a thriving cultural scene, with several theatres as well as arts and live music venues.
