Discerning property-seekers can now experience a taste of the lifestyle on offer at our popular White Willow Park development in Coventry following the opening of three new showhomes.

House-hunters can get a taste of what life might be like at this sought-after development by visiting the three-bedroom ‘Gosford’, the three-bedroom ‘Ingleton’ and the two-bedroom ‘Canford’ showhomes.

These beautiful properties, which have each been expertly decorated with exquisite fittings and furnishings, were officially unveiled by the Lord Mayor of Coventry Cllr Gary Crookes and Coventry City Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing & Heritage, Cllr Ed Ruane, on Saturday 25th January.

Anne Wallace, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The launch of these three stunning showhomes enables prospective purchasers to appreciate the appealing design and spacious interior layout of the properties available at White Willow Park.

“We are experiencing a high level of interest in the new homes at this exciting development, so I would urge would-be buyers to come and visit us as soon as possible – or they could miss out on their perfect plot!”

The Help to Buy shared equity scheme is available at White Willow Park, enabling eligible first-time buyers and existing homeowners to secure a Government loan for 20% of the full price of their new home – meaning they only require a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a 5% deposit.

Help to Buy is available on new-build properties up to the value of £600,000 and there is no salary cap for homebuyers taking advantage of the scheme.

White Willow Park is part of a prestigious regeneration project which is breathing new life into the suburb of Canley. The new Charter Primary School and the Xcel Sports Centre are already completed, while the new Forrest Medical Centre is being built next to the Taylor Wimpey development site and is anticipated to be open to patients in summer 2014. New paving is also being provided in front of shops in the area, along with street lighting improvements.

Canley boasts superb transport links providing quick access to the city centre, which boasts an extensive selection of shops, plus theatres, cinemas, museums, art galleries, restaurants and bars, plus the Coventry SkyDome Ice Rink, the Ricoh Arena and the first city-centre IKEA to be opened in the UK.

Junction 3 of the M6 and Junction 6 of the M42 are less than eight miles away, providing easy access to the motorway network, while Canley railway station is only a mile from home for services to the city centre in just three minutes, Rugby in 14 minutes and Birmingham New Street within half an hour.
