The Apiary will be a hive of activity


The builders have been busy and now The Apiary, the exciting new scheme from Palady Homes in Thatcham, is ready for buyers to swarm around the view home.

It's set to be unveiled on Saturday, October 1, and appointments are now being booked through Carter Jonas in Newbury.

With prices from £495,000 - with Help to Buy available on this scheme, a buyer could pay £396,000 initially. Exciting news, too, is that there's still an opportunity to tailor internal choices for selected plots. Two five bedroom houses will be released later in the year.

Award-winning Palady Homes has already established a fine reputation for its well-executed schemes. The Apiary is on the site of a former smallholding and apiary off Henwick Lane, the name providing a link with its past. The location has the perfect balance between access to open countryside or the commuting stations at Thatcham or Newbury just a few minutes away.

"We have worked with Palady Homes on previous schemes and the one thing that always comes across is the immediate good impression of those who come to view," says Rupert Reeves, partner in charge of residential sales for Carter Jonas in Newbury.

"The Apiary is no exception and in addition to the high quality of the homes themselves, landscaping sensitive to the mature surroundings of the site complements the carefully chosen materials for the homes themselves."

A little extra help on understanding Help to Buy
22 September 2016

Study the media too intently and you'll be convinced that stepping onto or moving up the property ladder is an impossible dream without huge savings for a deposit or a large amount of equity built up in a property you already own.

But that's far from the case. The Government-run Help to Buy scheme is there as a lifeline in a variety of different circumstances, helping those with a small deposit but a sufficient income to meet a large mortgage or by helping boost deposit funds for those of more limited means.

In effect, it has the potential to open doors for a lot of people who thought they were excluded from property ownership.

"Help to Buy could be key to a lot of people unlocking the door to their own home," explains Rupert Reeves, partner in charge of residential sales for Carter Jonas in Newbury. "There's insufficient recognition of what it offers or acknowledgment that it serves a far wider variety of people than those who need to reduce their mortgage borrowing through low current income while they anticipate income growth in the medium term.

"Help to Buy will assist with boosting deposits for those whose savings only amount to five per cent of the purchase price but also offers a guarantee scheme so that lenders can be assured mortgage risk is covered when borrowers only have a five per cent deposit but have an income to fund a 95 per cent mortgage.

"The scheme has far greater scope than previous attempts to boost the property market because it applies to people who already own a home as well as first time buyers and pre-owned homes as well as new ones.

"But for buyers moving out of rented accommodation in particular, buying a new home with a pre-agreed move date and no complicated sales chain seems a perfect solution. The broad panel of mortgage lenders who support Help to Buy also offer competitive products with good interest rates.

"A realistic upper price limit of £600,000 also reflects the current property market. As an illustration, one of the new £495,000 four bedroom homes at The Apiary in Thatcham would need a mortgage of £396,000 under Help to Buy, with the buyer contributing a cash deposit of £24,750. Naturally, the buyer would need to budget for Stamp Duty land tax, payable on the full purchase price. For this illustration that would amount to £14,750.

"In an area like Newbury, where many people start promising careers on good salaries but maybe without a large savings pot built up, Help to Buy can assist them far faster than any scheme intended to boost deposit savings.

"Of course, people must always be aware of affordability and ensure they can pay their mortgage if interest rates rise. Deposit loans under Help to Buy will also need to be repaid and must be factored into future living costs. But Help to Buy is still a huge boost to property buying aspirations."

A Palady Home for Christmas

There might not have been room at the inn, but the proud owners of 14 luxury apartments in Newbury have all moved into their new abodes in time for Christmas thanks to award winning developers Palady Homes.

Palmer House on Enborne Road is a exclusive gated development on the site of the playground of the former St. Nicholas School and is named after the Newbury martyr Julius Palmer. Finished to the highest standard, it also boasts ample private parking and grounds will
continue to be managed by Palady Homes.

A reception was held last week for the new residents; director Adrian Doyle explained: "We are proud of this development and we worked hard to finish the bespoke touches that buyers requested and have been delighted to get everyone moved in before Christmas."
