Swap your old home for new with part exchange at Highfields, St Albans

Families looking to make the next link in the property chain can avoid the hassle and headache of the housing market in an instant – by part-exchanging for a brand new four-bedroom home at Highfields in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

Families looking to make the next link in the property chain can avoid the hassle and headache of the housing market in an instant by part-exchanging for a brand new four-bedroom home at Highfields in St Albans, Hertfordshire.


Those trading up to the substantial Batchwood family house at plot 16 or the spacious Vintry at plot 20 at this sought-after development can take advantage of Taylor Wimpeys part-exchange scheme and let the leading housebuilder purchase their current home from them.


Knowing that they are receiving the full market value for their current home, and have a guaranteed buyer, they can keep living there until their new place is ready to move into, without the worry of their side of the property chain collapsing.


Tony Woodman, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: The process of buying and moving to a new home can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience, but our fantastic part-exchange initiative makes moving to one of our new homes at Highfields a doddle.


We arrange three valuations of the purchasers current property, and buy it from them for an agreed price, leaving them free to move in to their new home as soon as it is ready. Part exchange is available now on just two brand new homes at Highfields, and with properties selling fast its an offer that wont be around for long.


I would urge movers to get in touch with us without delay to take advantage of this straightforward way to step up the property ladder in style.


The four-bedroom detached Batchwood at plot 16 offers wonderfully spacious accommodation laid out in an attractive L-shaped design to include a kitchen with family/breakfast area and a separate living room, each with French doors opening out to the private rear garden, plus a dining room and a cloakroom off the entrance hallway. Upstairs is the magnificent master bedroom with en-suite, three further bedrooms and the main bathroom. The property, which is priced at just 625,000, also benefits from a garage.


The expansive four-bedroom Vintry at plot 20 is also detached and includes a contemporary fitted kitchen with plenty of space for informal dining and a separate living room, each with French doors leading to the rear garden, as well as a formal dining room, study and cloakroom off the entrance hallway. Upstairs is the stunning en-suite master bedroom, three further bedrooms and main bathroom. Priced at only 625,000, the Vintry has allocated parking.


Highfields is a stunning development of just 34 homes in a scenic location overlooking fields on the outskirts of St Albans. The city boasts a wealth of shops, bars and restaurants, schools for children of all ages and leisure facilities.


Commuters will appreciate that Highfields is situated just three miles from St Albans railway station with regular trains to London St Pancras in just 20 minutes.


As well as excellent rail links, the development is close to major roads such as the M1, M25 and the A1 making any journey by car a simple one.


Famed for its cathedral and Roman history, St Albans has a thriving cultural life with numerous arts venues including The Alban Arena, Abbey Theatre and the Albans Art Theatre. The museum of everyday life in Roman Britain, the Verulamium Museum, features magnificent mosaics and recreated rooms.


The area offers a wealth of villages, good pubs, beautiful walks, historic churches and family attractions such as Shaws Corner and the de Havilland Aircraft Heritage Centre nearby. A little further afield is Hatfield House, a stunning Jacobean house steeped in royal history, within an extensive park.
