Interested purchasers will have the opportunity to take a walk around the three and four bedroom homes at the development, which are now ready to move into. An independent financial advisor will also be on hand at the event to provide expert advice and answer any questions. 

In particular, visitors will able to learn more about the Help to Buy scheme. The Government-backed initiative is designed to support both first time buyers and existing homeowners to purchase a new home with as little as a 5% cash deposit. It only applies to new build properties in England with a maximum purchase price of £600,000. To date, almost half (44%) of the properties sold at the Foxgloves development have been purchased using the scheme, which has helped many to buy their dream home.

Foxgloves is a stunning collection of two to five-bedroom family homes located in an idyllic leafy setting just less than a mile from Shipston-on-Stour town centre. Amongst the homes ready to view, and available through the Help to Buy scheme, is The Gloucester. This charming four-bedroom detached home is currently priced at £424,950 and is available with £10,000 towards Stamp Duty for reservations made by 4th March.  

Neil Simpson, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (Midlands), said: “At CALA, we’re committed to supporting our customers throughout the entire buying journey, from the initial enquiry to the big move. All too often, we meet house hunters who are unable to raise a substantial cash deposit once they have discovered their dream property. That’s why the Help to Buy initiative is such a brilliant solution. The scheme has helped so many of our customer’s secure their perfect home by making the deposit and mortgage repayments achievable, and what many people don’t realise is that it is available for those moving up the ladder as well as first time buyers, on properties up to £600,000.

“Foxgloves has proven to be a really popular development, especially with Help to Buy. It’s ideal for those looking for their dream home that offers spacious living, but also in a location that provides a new lifestyle with plentiful green surroundings to explore. If you’re considering making a move this year, come and see us on the 16th and 17th February and make the most of the expertise available – your new dream home could be more affordable than you think.”

Each home at Foxgloves features light, contemporary and spacious interiors finished to a high specification and are currently priced from £349,950 to £695,950.  

Foxgloves may seem far from the hustle and bustle of city life, however the transport links you need for the daily commute are in easy reach. The M40 motorway is situated about 15 miles away, while Bicester and Oxford are both around 30 miles from Shipston. Plus, with outstanding schooling close by and an abundance of retail and leisure facilities on its doorstep, it’s easy to see why so many are making a home at Foxgloves.
