Deanfield Homes launches ‘First Homes’ at Deanfield Orchard

February 29, 2024In News2 Minutes

Deanfield Homes is supporting first time buyers by offering two apartments at Deanfield Orchard in Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, under the ‘First Homes’ scheme.

This new scheme has been designed to help local first-time buyers onto the property ladder by offering homes at a discount of 30% compared to the market price, with the first sale price of the property capped at £250,000 after the discount has been applied. The discounts will apply to the homes forever, meaning that generations of new buyers and the local community will continue to benefit every time the property is sold.

The First Homes scheme is now available for two new apartments at Deanfield Orchard, a one-bedroom ground floor apartment and a two-bedroom first floor apartment, both of which have been designed to the same modern specification and superior energy efficiency as the rest of the homes on the development. Deanfield Homes has designed with sustainability in mind and these apartments are heated via air source heat pumps and have thermally-efficient glazing, superior levels of insulation and EV charging points, all contributing to the cost-efficiency of the home.

Annette Gaskell, Sales and Marketing Manager, Deanfield Homes, said: “We are so pleased to be supporting first time buyers with these new apartments. Deanfield Orchard is a stunning development in a thriving village and the apartments themselves are a welcome addition, widening our offering to homebuyers. We would love to attract local purchasers, benefitting the first time buyers who the scheme has been designed for.”

Located just two miles from the historic market town of Wallingford, Deanfield Orchard is set within a backdrop of mature trees, incorporating wildlife areas, public open space and a children’s play area and blending seamlessly with its surroundings.

The village of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell is known for its sense of community, with a primary school and pre-school, an award-winning pub, and a village hall with a thriving volunteer-run village shop adjacent.
