Kick start the new year with a home at former football ground

Leading housebuilder Weston Homes is offering potential buyers the unique and rare chance to call a football ground their home. Saxton Park, a collection of 95 spacious living, high specification two bedroom apartments and two , three and four bedroom houses and coach houses, is located on the site of the former Grays Athletic Football Club stadium in Essex. Conveniently located less than a mile from Grays Railway Station, building work is continuing to progress at Saxton Park, with a number of new homes ready to move into and a show home available to view for the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the development.

Launched in August 2011, Saxton Park will comprise of a total of 29 , two , three and four bedroom houses, 5, two bedroom coach houses and 6 1, two bedroom apartments. The Grays Athletic stadium was a 2.88 acre ground with a 1,000 – seater stand and three terraces which could accommodate a further 5,000 supporters. The stadium had been the home of Grays Athletic for 120 years, but has now been converted into a unique collection of homes by Weston Homes and keeps the traditions of the football club in its name – having been named after the Saxton brothers Jeff and Fred, who served the club as twin managers for nearly three decades.

Weston Homes will also be marking the centre spot inside the grounds of the development with a commemo-rative marker in reference to Saxton Park once being the home of Grays Athletic Football Club.

First time buyers are also given a helping hand towards buying a new home at Saxton Park, without the need for a hefty deposit. Potential buyers only need to raise a deposit of 5% on the value of the home, which means that a high quality two bedroom apartment in Essex could be purchased by putting down a deposit for as little as £7,025.

One o f the world’s largest banks, Santander, is currently offering new buyers a special deal with mortgages offered for up to 9% of the property value. This means first time buyers only need to cover the remaining 10 % , but by putting down a deposit of just 5% , Weston Homes will provide the remaining 5% which is needed.
