Last chance to use help to buy at Sussex coastal hideaway

Dandara is celebrating the launch of the second phase of its energy efficient homes at Paddock View – the housebuilders development on North End Road in the tranquil village of Yapton, Sussex. With Help to Buy set to end later this year, the launch comes at the perfect time for local first time buyers looking to purchase with the scheme which requires buyers to reserve by October and move in by December next year. 

The housebuilder is constructing a further 70 two, three and four bedroom detached homes, along with 2 two-bedroom bungalows. There will also be a brand new three bedroom show home launching this July for ‘The Upnor’ house type, allowing potential buyers to see the quality of lifestyle on offer.

Nicki Dennis, Head of Sales at Dandara Southern, said: “We’ve had a huge increase in enquiries primarily from local first time buyers looking to take advantage of the Help to Buy scheme whilst they still can – some hadn’t even realised that it was coming to an end! With no current plan from the Government to replace the scheme, reserving before October is the key for first time buyers to get onto the property ladder. We want to encourage anyone interested to come down and see what the development has to offer.

Alongside a modern exterior, the latest homes include a whole host of energy efficiency features, including low heat-loss hot water cylinders ensuring water stays hotter for longer, the latest energy and water efficient kitchen appliances, as well as insulated external doors to improve soundproofing and reduce heat loss, which all help to reduce energy bills. The properties also have an energy efficient boiler installed to help manage consumption levels. The properties have achieved an EPC rating B thanks to these features.

Nicki continued, “Energy efficiency has been a priority for our buyers, the rising cost of living has really got homebuyers thinking about future-proofing their homes and ensuring they are making a sound investment – as well as keeping bills low ahead of the energy price cap increase later this year.”

The first phase of 38 homes in the picturesque development has already been a big hit with buyers thanks to its countryside location offering easy access to coastal living with the South Downs and the seaside within reach.

Paddock View is surrounded by scenic countryside yet is within easy reach of local amenities with the historic market town of Arundel just a 15-minute drive away and Littlehampton only a 10-minute drive. Perfect for families, Yapton CE Primary School and Yapton Pre-School are located next door to the development, both of which are rated Good by Ofsted.

Barnham railway station is located less than two miles away from the development, offering services to Portsmouth in 30 minutes and London Victoria within an hour and a half.
