New Homes at Plasdwr Offer Ideal First-Time Buy


Redrow’s latest new homes for sale at Plasdwr are now available from £220,995, offering first-time buyers a rare opportunity to get on the property ladder at Cardiff’s sought-after garden city for the 21st Century.

27 luxury two-bedroom apartments are now for sale at the Wales-headquartered premium housebuilder’s Cwrt Sant Ioan development. All are priced under £250,000 and therefore eligible for Help to Buy, the scheme that helps first-time buyers purchase with a 5% deposit.

The apartments are set across three floors within three blocks, each of nine apartments. As well as two double bedrooms, there are two bathrooms and a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area and most have balconies.

Combining smart, contemporary exteriors with modern, well laid-out interiors, there has already been a lot of interest in the apartments which will be ready to move into in Spring/Summer next year.

Bringing together the very best of town and country, Plasdwr is a new community taking shape in west Cardiff, close to public transport links and cycle routes as well as the M4 and just ten minutes from the capital’s city centre. It has been designed around residents’ well-being and offers a great place to live, work, learn and play, with walking and cycling the easiest ways to get around and lots of green space on the doorstep.

Redrow’s sales manager at the site, Danielle Richards, said that as well as being attractive investment or downsizing options, they are proving an attractive option for first-time buyers, given the enviable location.

The Cwrt Sant Ioan apartments are ideally located, with great walks, transport links and Cardiff city centre all easily reached, she said.

Plus, apartment living here is a bit different, with Plasdwr comprising almost 40% open space, so many first-time buyers who had been looking at houses are interested in these. Together with the Help to Buy making it possible for them to buy here and the reduction in outgoings through paying a mortgage rather than rent, we’re expecting as much interest from first-time buyers as from those wishing to downsize or invest.
