Derby's bright new future

24th March 2014

The recent news that Bombardier has won the £1bn Crossrail contract serves as a reminder of all that Derby has to offer. The city’s prosperity will be further strengthened with 760 manufacturing jobs and 80 apprenticeships to produce the new trains at Bombardier's Derby plant. As home to a number of other prestigious businesses, including Rolls-Royce and Toyota, as well as leading aerospace and rail technology companies, Derby’s local economy is thriving.

It comes as no real surprise then that home builder Kier Partnership Homes’ prestigious development, Manor Kingsway, is proving so popular. Kier’s fabulous range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes in a key location couldn’t have come at a better time for the city.

Manor Kingsway is off the A38 in west Derby and close to Royal Derby Hospital and Kingsway Retail Park. Excellent schools, employment, recreation facilities and local public transport are all within easy walking distance. The thoughtful design of Manor Kingsway, with its beautiful boulevards, avenues and public open spaces, make this a truly relaxing place to live.

Each state-of-the-art Manor Kingsway home has a stunning, highly specified kitchen with integrated appliances and downstairs cloakroom, plus en suite and fitted wardrobes to the master bedroom. All come with allocated parking or carports. The homes are being built to Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes and contain an impressive range of sustainable features.

Through Help to Buy, a new home at Manor Kingsway could be yours from just £113,596 (terms and conditions apply). Help to Buy is the government scheme that allows you to pay from just 80% but own 100% of your beautiful new home (subject to status and qualifying conditions) and is available at Manor Kingsway. You only need a 5% deposit and Kier will help you secure an equity loan up to 20% (interest free for the first five years) and arrange a mortgage for the 75% balance.

Alternatively, you can opt for the Help to Buy 95% mortgage guarantee, which gives better access to affordable mortgage rates by providing a government guarantee of up to 15% of the purchase price; at last buyers can secure up to 95% mortgage with only a 5% deposit.
