Help to Buy offers an easy move up the ladder for second steppers at Tarka Ridge


Buyers seeking a dream move up the property ladder are in for a treat when they visit Tarka Ridge in Yelland.

The David Wilson Homes development boasts an impressive range of spacious three, four and five bedroom houses – and more and more of those wishing to upsize are taking advantage of Help to Buy at the site.

“We’re seeing a significant rise in the number of buyers seeking moves to our larger home designs here at Tarka Ridge,” said sales director Nicki Reid. “It’s a particularly attractive development – with stylish properties surrounded by beautiful countryside.

“More than ever, we’re noticing people opting to use Help to Buy in order to secure their second step up the property ladder. It offers a great opportunity for moving into a bigger family home – and for stretching your money much further.”


The Help to Buy scheme

Help to Buy is available on all new-build homes up to £600,000 at Tarka Ridge. Buyers can become owners here with just a 5 percent deposit of the property value of their new home. Many lenders are able to offer a loan-to-value mortgage because the UK Government provides a guarantee of up to 15 percent.

“A large number of buyers at Tarka Ridge are upsizing, having previously used Help to Buy to secure their existing homes,” added Nicki. “After five years, payments on the Help to Buy scheme start to incur interest but, by moving home and entering into a new Help to Buy arrangement, purchasers can have another five years interest free.

“And there are plenty of beautiful home designs for buyers to choose from here, whatever their requirements.”


Current availability at Tarka Ridge

Current availability at Tarka Ridge includes the three bedroom Bellbroughton house type, priced from £310,000, the four bedroom Millford, Cornell, Holden, Layton and Chelworth designs, from £360,000, £375,000, £425,000, £450,000 and £470,000 respectively, and the five bedroom Manning family home, priced from £500,000.

“Tarka Ridge is designed to suit buyers with a wide range of lifestyles,” said Nicki. “But families, in particular, are loving this perfect combination of a semi-rural location close to all local amenities.”

Tarka Ridge is a collection of three, four and five bedroom homes on the banks of the River Taw in Yelland. The town of Barnstaple is only a short drive away, with a range of local shops, cafes and restaurants.
