New homes to view this Spring bank holiday at Thornedge, Cumwhinton

The long bank holiday weekend is an ideal time to view the superb new homes at the Magnus Homes development at Thornedge, Cumwhinton. Open events are held every Saturday and Sunday at Thornedge and will be specially extended over the Spring bank holiday with the development being open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11am to 3pm.

The range of high-specification properties includes 2-bedroom semi-detached bungalows, 3-bedroom detached bungalows (one with its own private orchard!) and 4-bedroom detached dormer-style houses. All feature oak-finish doors, quality kitchen units and appliances, extensive tiling to bathrooms and luxurious bathroom fittings including LED mirrors with demisters. The dormer-style homes feature oak designer staircases with a choice of glass infill panels or oak spindles.

Thornedge is an attractive development set in the heart of the lovely village of Cumwhinton. The homes here are well spaced out, unlike many cramped modern estates, and it is an ideal location for those with aspirations to enjoy rural life. Many of the homes are now occupied and a friendly community is already growing.

PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED FOR NEW BUNGALOWS IN CUMWHINTON

We are delighted to announce that we have been granted planning permission to build a further four bungalows on our development at Thornedge Gardens, Cumwhinton. Magnus Homes director Frank Lowe said ‘We are so pleased that our proposals have been approved because this type of property is very popular with buyers and there has been a lot of interest, not only in the eight bungalows and dormer-style homes already under construction but also in these newly-announced properties. In fact, one of the four additional bungalows, a three-bedroom detached, has already been sold off-plan and we are expecting a surge in inquiries about the others’.

Unusually, one of the new bungalows, also a three-bedroom detached, will be of particular interest because it features its own private orchard which is a rare opportunity for buyers although very much in keeping with this idyllic rural setting.

Frank Lowe said, ‘I’m also pleased to say that one of the two-bedroom semi-detached bungalow at Thornedge Gardens is available as part of the Low Cost Housing Scheme. Anybody interested in this should apply to Carlisle City Council’.

The NEW Help to Buy ISA

The NEW Help to Buy: ISA
The government has created the Help to Buy scheme to help hard-working people like you take steps to buy your own home.The new Help to Buy:ISA pays first time buyers a government bonus. For example, save £200 a month and the government will add £50, up to a maximum of £3,000, boosting your ISA savings of £12,000 to £15,000.

How does it work?
If you are saving to buy your first home, save money into a Help to Buy:ISA (http://www.helpto buy.gov.uk/) and the government will boost your savings by 25%. So, for every £200 you save, receive a government bonus of £50. The maximum government bonus you can receive is £3,000.

Open: The Help to Buy ISA will be available from a range of banks and building societies.
The accounts are available to each first time buyer, not each household. This means that if you are planning to buy with your partner, for example, you could receive a government bonus of up to £6,000 towards your first home.

Save: Put away up to £200 a month into your Help to Buy:ISA. To kickstart your account, in your first month you can deposit a lump sum of up to £1200.
The minimum government bonus is £400, meaning that you need to have saved at least £1,600 into your Help to Buy:ISA before you can claim your bonus. The maximum government bonus you can receive is £3,000 – to receive that you need to have saved £12,000.

Receive bonus: When you are in the process of buying your first home, your solicitor or conveyancer will apply for your government bonus. Please check whether your solicitor or conveyancer is participating in the Help to Buy:ISA scheme, as they will need to register with the scheme before they can apply for your bonus.
