Persimmon helps first timers onto the property ladder
17 November 2012
First time buyers in Skelmersdale are getting helped onto the housing ladder thanks to a mortgage scheme which aids people with smaller deposits
Persimmon Lancashire is offering houses at its Beacon Green development under the FirstBuy shared equity scheme – meaning a dream first home could be within reach with a deposit of just £5,650*.
With FirstBuy, the purchaser’s deposit and 75 per cent mortgage is assisted by equity loans from the government and Persimmon Homes, meaning you own 100 per cent of your home but pay no interest on 20 per cent of it for the first five years.
Beacon Green, on Tanhouse Road, offers a range of well-designed two, three and four three bedroom homes to suit first time buyers, growing families and downsizers. All make superb use of space and are built to exacting modern standards of energy efficiency – making them more affordable to run and maintain.
Properties available include a ‘Penrose’ two bedroom semi-detached home which boasts a family-friendly dining kitchen and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom, priced £90,396.
The ‘Rufford’ three bedroom detached, one of Persimmon’s most popular house styles, includes an integral garage, patio doors from the spacious dining kitchen and a larger-than-average en-suite, priced £123,996.
Lovers of three storey living will adore the ‘Souter’, which offers a master suite at the top of the house, two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor and a large lounge, cloakroom and kitchen/diner at ground level, priced £107,996.
For those needing more family space, the spacious four bedroom ‘Chesterton’ delivers an integral garage, a useful utility room and patio doors from the separate dining room into the rear garden, priced £135,996.
A great location, just eight miles from Wigan, 23 miles from Manchester city centre and close to the M6 and M58, makes Beacon Green perfect for commuters.
Prices at Beacon Green start at just £90,396*.
