Join us for an open weekend at Hillcrest

C G Fry & Son Ltd. is holding an open weekend to assist ‘Help to Buy’ purchasers on the final six homes available at its Hillcrest development, located in the desirable St. John’s Road in the popular sea-side town of Exmouth.

The event is being held from 10 am – 4 pm on the weekend of 21st and 22nd February.  Visitors on Saturday will have the chance to talk to professionals, including local solicitors, mortgage and financial advisers and estate agents.  These industry experts will be on hand to offer the best advice on how the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme can help potential purchasers realise their dream to buy a new home. 

The *‘Help to Buy’ Equity Loan scheme (*see Notes to Editor) helps first time buyers and those looking to move up the property ladder to purchase a new-build home.  The government-backed initiative was set up to help new and existing home owners to purchase a property with as little as a 5% deposit.

To date the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme has helped around 50,000 people to buy a new home and the majority of sales were to first-time buyers representing 83% of total sales.

Gwenda Beckley, Stakeholder Manager, of Help to Buy South West says: ““Help to Buy’ is helping thousands of house buyers to purchase their first home or to move up the property ladder.  The open weekend organised by C G Fry & Son is a great initiative to assist potential buyers to find out more about the Government scheme from local experts.”

Award-winning builders, C G Fry & Son announces the release of the final phase of Hillcrest comprising three-bed semi-detached, mid and end-terrace houses, each with own back garden and woodland to the front.  Hillcrest development is set within generous grounds with a wooded landscape. The development design comprises streetscapes of detached and semi-detached homes in brick and render with slate and tiled roofs and some cedar clad properties in keeping with the local area. 

Taking centre stage is the original Withycombe House.  Built in the early nineteenth century, the Grade II listed property, originally constructed in a Gothic villa tradition, has been restored to its former glory and converted into luxury accommodation. 

Caroline Hill, Head of Sales and Marketing – C G Fry & Son says: “This is a great opportunity for people looking to buy their first home or move up the property ladder to meet local industry experts.  These professionals will be on hand throughout Saturday to help visitors get a better understanding of how the ‘Help to Buy Scheme’ can work for them.   On Sunday we are holding an open viewing day and we can still assist with advice on the scheme.  It’s also the last chance for buyers to acquire a high-quality home in a delightful setting with stunning woodland in the final phase of this development. Withycombe House will also be open offering the chance to purchase the fabulous two-bedroom show apartment boasting a castellated balcony overlooking parkland.”
