The final apartments and house are now available with First Buy – the government backed scheme to help more first time buyers onto the housing market.

David Wilson Homes’ managing director, Ian Wallace said: “Blenheim Park has been a tremendously popular development and we are thrilled with its success. All three remaining homes are available under the First Buy scheme and would make an ideal first home for anyone looking to get onto the property ladder.”

Under First Buy, first time buyers are offered a loan of up to 20 per cent of the price of the property, jointly funded by Barratt and the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency.

The buyers then have to find the remaining 80 per cent of the price themselves with the mortgage and deposit.

In practice, under First Buy a first time buyer would potentially be able to get on the housing ladder at Blenheim Park with a deposit of as little as £6,400 for a two bedroom apartment.

“We are absolutely certain that there will be huge interest in the remaining homes and we are expecting them to be snapped up fast.” Ian continued, “I would urge anybody interested to get in touch soon or they will miss out.”

Blenheim Park is built on an old RAF airfield, which played a pivotal role in the Battle of Britain, and the homes boast distinctive brickwork that blends in well with their surroundings. The development offers an ideal base for commuters as the A27 is minutes away, offering an easy commute to Gatwick, Brighton and Portsmouth.”

The development lies close to countryside and just three miles northeast of the city of Chichester, which dates back to Roman times.

The city offers a wealth of special events throughout the year and its harbour is a haven for yachting enthusiasts.
