First time buyers snap up homes at Saxton Park

First time buyers are snapping up homes at leading housebuilder Weston Homes’ popular Essex development Saxton Park, Grays, Essex which benefits from affordable, high quality homes, surrounded by a striking street-scene and quick and easy transport connections into London.

Launched in August 2011, Saxton Park is a stunning collection of 95 spacious living, high specification two bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom houses, located on the site of the former Grays Athletic Football Club stadium in Essex, and named after the Saxton brothers Jeff and Fred, who served the club as twin managers for nearly three decades.

Almost 40% of the homes have already sold at Saxton Park, with the final stage of building work on the last two blocks of homes set to be complete by the end of October 2012.

For first time buyers who are struggling to save for a deposit, Weston Homes are also providing a 5% deposit to go towards their savings to buy a new home at Saxton Park.

Bob Weston, Chairman and Chief Executive of Weston Homes, comments: “Saxton Park has been a hugely popular development for first time buyers, with a range of high quality, good value homes in a leading Essex location.”

“Building work is now almost complete and the striking street-scene that links up the homes has proved a popular walkway for the local community through the development.”

The apartments are finished to Weston Homes’ customary high specification, featuring modern, open plan living, with many having ensuites to the master bedroom and balconies or terraces, allocated parking and telephone entry systems. The two, three and four bedroom houses offer substantial space, with many spread over three floors and each having private rear gardens, allocated parking and garages for select properties.
