Following the launch of its fabulous new showhome, visitors are rushing to visit Oakdale – Kier Partnership Homes’ new development at Lydney in the Forest of Dean. The interest is not surprising; Kier Partnership Homes has a fantastic range of two-bedroom houses and apartments available, many of which are ready to move straight into!
The Lascombe showhome is a superb example of why you need to buy at Oakdale. It is a nicely proportioned two-bedroom home, with a spacious lounge and kitchen/diner downstairs and two good-sized bedrooms – some with en suite – on the first floor. Whether you are starting your family or have decided it’s time to downsize, there will be something for you at Oakdale.
The specification of all these homes is to Kier’s usual high standard of beautiful, contemporary kitchens, with integrated appliances and downstairs cloakrooms, plus fitted wardrobes and en suites to the master bedrooms.
Through Help to Buy, a two-bed apartment at Oakdale starts from just £75,996, while two-bedroom houses are available from just £110,396. 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 Oakdale. 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.
