Final homes at popular Merthyr development available with current Help to Buy scheme


Leading developer Lovell Homes is encouraging property seekers in South Wales to enquire about the final six homes at its popular Ymyl Yr Afon development, which are available to purchase using the current Government-backed Help to Buy – Wales: Equity Loan scheme.

Located between Merthyr Vale and Aberfan, Ymyl Yr Afon is a stunning collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes, all of which have been thoughtfully designed with their own unique character.

Only six homes are available to purchase at Ymyl Yr Afon, including the three-bedroom Abse style home, priced at £209,995, and four-bedroom Hardy and Larkin style homes, priced from £263,995 and £254,995 respectively.

All of the properties have now been released for sale, meaning this is the last chance for buyers to make a move to this stunning development. Keen purchasers can register their interest to be the first to find out when the showhomes will also be released for sale.

These wonderful homes can be purchased with just a 5% deposit using the current Help to Buy – Wales scheme, with reservations made before 31st March 2021*. The remaining amount is made up from a 75% mortgage and a 20% equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years.

The new Help to Buy – Wales scheme will be launched on 1st April 2021 and is currently set to run until March 2022. The new scheme is only available on homes with a purchase price under £250,000, meaning those looking to purchase a larger home may no longer be eligible.

The four-bedroom detached homes are perfect for growing families, offering the very best in modern and flexible living. Each property benefits from a spacious, open plan kitchen/dining room to the rear of the property, benefitting from integrated appliances and French doors leading out onto the enclosed rear garden. A generous, separate living room, cloakroom, utility area and storage cupboards complete the ground floor, providing plenty of space for the whole family to enjoy.

Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms, a family bathroom and additional storage cupboard, with bedroom one boasting a private en-suite for an additional luxurious feel. Both style properties also benefit from a garage and allocated parking, with an integral garage featured in the Larkin style home.  

Current availability at the development includes only two three-bedroom Abse homes priced from £209,995, three four-bedroom Hardy homes priced from £263,995 and the final four-bedroom Larkin home on the development priced at £254,995.

The marketing suite at Ymyl Yr Afon is currently closed in line with Government guidance and the showhomes are open by appointment only, 10am to 5pm seven days a week. For more information and to book your appointment, visit or contact the sales team on 01685 868 245.
