Higgins Homes, an Essex-based housebuilder, has proved that every buyer deserves quality by winning first place at the prestigious First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards. Within the category ‘Best First Time Buyer Apartment’, Higgins Homes beat off stiff competition with the winning development, New Stratford Works.
The annual Awards highlight the many lengths housebuilders go to in order to help buyers onto the ladder. Now in their eleventh year, the Awards’ ethos is to celebrate projects that deliver aspirational properties within the budget of the first time buyer.
This year’s Awards were hosted online by television presenters Jonnie Irwin from A Place in the Sun and Nicki Chapman from Escape to the Country. Each category was shortlisted by a panel of industry expert judges and then readers of First Time Buyer Magazine were given the deciding vote through an online system.
“We’re delighted to win because we understand the importance of owning a first home and that it is our job to guide buyers through the process,” says Jeremy Marcus, Sales & Marketing Director at Higgins Homes. “For many, it is the realisation of a dream so this drives us to deliver the best homes within the best financial terms for first time buyers. I’m pleased to say that New Stratford Works has delivered on so many levels, which is why it has virtually sold out.”
Higgins Homes are experts in transforming areas into vibrant communities and with New Stratford Works, the developer has created new apartments on the site of a former locomotive depot. Today, the collection of hotel-style apartments comprises 154 homes just moments from Westfield Stratford City and the Queen Elizabeth Park.
“This disused industrial area is now a real and thriving neighbourhood with outstanding infrastructure, commercial space and a new park,” adds Jeremy Marcus. “Community and first-class amenities are central to our idea of home ownership. Our approach is to create integrated neighbourhoods with a strong sense of wellbeing and excellent design throughout to create the best living experience possible.”
Now, just one property remains for sale at New Stratford Works. The development benefits from an excellent location just moments from Stratford International Station. Outstanding connectivity together with access to open space has created an urban sanctuary.
Located in the heart of the development, Higgins Homes has built a new Linear Park, bursting will all manner of trees and foliage allowing every resident the opportunity to get back to nature.
