Help to Buy the home you want

Make your money go further with Help to Buy. First time buyers or existing homeowners can buy a new home with just a 5% deposit and a 20% equity loan – available on all new builds in England under £600,000. Easily find homes within your price range using our handy Help to Buy calculator.

Adjust the slider to the amount of deposit you have available. This calculator assumes that the minimum allowable deposit on a ‘with Help to Buy’ mortgage is 5% and the maximum allowable deposit is 30%. This calculator also assumes that the minimum deposit for a ‘without Help to Buy’ mortgage is 15%.

[?]

Mortgage interest rates are set by mortgage providers and will depend on a number of factors such as your deposit value, the value of the property and your financial circumstances. As a guide, as of September 2013 most mortgage rates are between 3% and 6%. This calculator works on the basis of a capital and interest repayment mortgage, with interest calculated monthly.

[?]

Adjust the slider to the amount you might expect to be able to repay each month on your mortgage. The results will include your other settings, including your mortgage amount, length of the mortgage term and interest rate. Note that this amount does not include the interest repayable to the Government on your Help to Buy equity loan from year 5 onwards.

Essentials on your doorstep

Blakedown Church of England Primary School is within walking distance located on the main Birmingham Road.

  • Local church, St James the Great, which has served the community for 150 years
  • A village shop is close by offering a selection of fresh foods
  • Secondary school can be found in nearby Hagley along with a range of colleges

Efficient, modern design

The site's former use was as a Garden Nursery. To the south-east of the site are views over open countryside. These views have been maintained, and to the west of the site is located the Millennium Green, Scout Hut and Parish Hall. We have included the creation of a new converted farm style building, with car parking to the rear. We have retained the existing mature trees and endeavoured to create a development with its own aesthetic identity, that will contribute to the existing diversity of Blakedown village. A simple material palette of bricks and render, with simple brick details, will help to create focal points, and a sense of place.

The build so far

Build started in autumn 2012 and the sales centre and stunning new show home opened in May 2013. The last few remaining plots are now available with build due to complete in Summer this year.
