Meet ‘Help To Buy’ Experts at Open Weekend on 14th March at Tregunnel Hill - Newquay

C G Fry & Son Ltd., is holding an open weekend on the 14th March to assist ‘Help to Buy’ purchasers on the last few new homes available for sale at the Duchy of Cornwall, Tregunnel Hill development located on the edge of Newquay.

Tregunnel Hill boasts traditional buildings with stylish décor, showcasing the beauty of Cornish architectural heritage.  The homes enjoy new building techniques offering 21st century standards of energy-efficiency and security.  Locally sourced materials are used such as Cornish granite, minimising carbon emissions and boosting the local economy.  Although completely sold out on the first two phases, on Phase 3, there are two four-bed semi-detached Town Houses, a detached three-bed house and a three-bed semi-detached home all with parking and garage available with prices ranging from £255,000. 

The open weekend is being held from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday 14th March with light refreshments available.  Visitors will have the chance to talk to professionals, including a local solicitor, financial adviser and estate agent.  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.”

The homes at C G Fry’s Tregunnel Hill enjoy wonderful views and the development is the closest new-build to Newquay town centre and the coast. 

Caroline Hill, Head of Sales and Marketing – C G Fry & Son said: “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 the Saturday to help visitors get a better understanding of how the ‘Help to Buy Scheme’ can work for them.   It’s also the last chance for buyers to acquire a high-quality home in a delightful area with magnificent views.  From the Tregunnel Hill development, it’s an easy walk to the town-centre and you can reach the stunning Fistral Beach, one of the best surfing beaches in the UK, on foot in just 15 minutes.”
