Homes at a South Yorkshire housing development are proving to be popular with record sales reported.

Housing developer Keepmoat’s Amaranthus development in Wincobank, Sheffield offers buyers a choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes and apartments aimed at first-time buyers, families and professionals.

Prices start at £74,396 on the Government’s Help to Buy scheme for a two-bedroom Wisteria apartment to £127,996, also on Help to Buy, for a four-bedroom Rowan home.

The Wisteria apartments are attracting first-time buyers and boast a spacious lounge/dining area, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms.

Also available from £105,596 on Help to Buy is the Ivy, a three bedroom, three-storey townhouse.

This home, which may appeal to families and professionals, includes a WC and garage on the ground floor, a kitchen/diner and lounge on the first floor and two bedrooms and a family bathroom with a larger master bedroom including en-suite bathroom on the second floor.

For buyers looking for more space, the four-bedroom Rowan includes an integral single garage, an open-plan kitchen/dining room with French doors leading to the garden, a lounge on the first floor, and a master bedroom with en-suite and a further three bedrooms and family bathroom on the second floor.

Help to Buy offers buyers who have saved a 5% deposit the chance of a five-year interest free loan covering 20% of the value of the property.

The remaining 75% of the property’s value will be funded through a mortgage, which Keepmoat can help to arrange.

Vanessa Burling, Keepmoat new build sales director in Yorkshire, said: “The launch of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme has helped a lot of first-time buyers to get a foot on to the property ladder and if you are thinking of buying a new home then please come and visit us to find out what Amaranthus has to offer.”
