New homes for sale in Durrington
28 April 2011
After much anticipation, a new housing development has opened its doors in Durrington, Salisbury.On the back of the success of the Osmund Fields in Salisbury and Archers Gate in Amesbury, Persimmon Homes has opened Avon Fields on Netheravon Road – a site that will ultimately comprise 145 new properties including one and two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom homes. The new homes for sale in Durrington are professionally designed, with the showhome launching in the summer.
Recognising how important first time buyers are in the market place, Persimmon has launched Avon Fields with its Shared Equity incentive, meaning the price for a three bedroom house with a garage is just £159,950.
With Persimmon’s Shared Equity incentive, buyers pay 80 per cent of the value of the property and the remaining percentage is not payable for ten years or until the home is re-sold - whichever comes first, with no interest to pay for the first five years.
Ideal for those on lower incomes and for the growing number of people wanting to buy on their own, the scheme is an ideal option for many buyers as it means they are able to purchase without having the cost of the whole mortgage.
Rob Allen, sales director for Persimmon Homes South Coast, said: “There are certainly people out there who really want to buy, but find that they are unable to which is why initiatives such as Shared Equity are so important. We want to provide as much assistance as we can to make owning a home a realistic option for as many buyers as possible and this is why we have made a limited number of properties available at Avon Fields with Shared Equity.
“We have carved out a solid reputation in Salisbury – having built here for a number of years – and I’m sure Avon Fields will perform just as successfully.”
Buyers at Avon Fields can choose from a wide range of optional extras from Persimmon’s ‘Finishing Touches’ range (depending on build stage) to add a touch of individuality to their new home, choosing from a range of extras including carpets, light fittings and conservatories to name but a few.
