Family move to new development with Part Exchange

Posted 1 July 2016 by Helen Christie

For one family who were already living at a CALA development, the chance to gain more space at another CALA development was something they couldn’t pass up...

CALA Homes’ The Arbour development in Welford-on-Avon is proving extremely popular with local families looking for a high specification, luxury new home. 

Kate Wainwright, her partner Brian and their two children, Daisy, 9 and Harry, 2 were living at Hayfield Lawns, CALA’s previous development in Welford-on-Avon when they heard about the new homes being built at The Arbour. 

Kate explains: “We were extremely happy in our home at Hayfields Lawn but with two young children, we were finding that we wanted a detached home with more space. We wanted to stay in the village and we really like new build homes because everything is all brand new and with very little spare time we didn’t want any big maintenance jobs to deal with. We then discovered that CALA Homes were building a new development of family homes, which sounded ideal, and got in touch straight away to register our interest.

“Brian works in Solihull and I am based in Stratford so the location is so convenient and with Stratford on our doorstep we are able to take advantage of the theatre and great restaurants. The school in the village is also definitely a draw for us with two young children and we know the area so well, having lived locally all our lives.

“CALA Homes arranged for us to see the show home after hours along with our new next door neighbours-to-be and we were each given a glass of prosecco as we wandered around, which was lovely. We fell in love with the show home straight away, particularly the kitchen, which is extremely high quality and so homely.”

Brian and Kate reserved the four-bedroom detached Ibsley. The home features an open-plan kitchen/breakfast and family room with French doors leading out to the garden, a spacious living room, also with French doors, a separate dining room and study on the ground floor. The first floor has a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms, with en suite to the second bedroom and a family bathroom.

Kate continues: “Brian and I decided to opt for CALA Homes’ Part Exchange service as we felt it would be a much smoother move and we didn’t have to worry about the stress and strain of going through the traditional home sale route. It was so easy to do and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone thinking of buying a new home. We now can’t wait to move into our new home.”

The Arbour is an exclusive development of 18 four- and five-bedroom homes situated close to the heart of the village of Welford-on-Avon. It offers a rare blend of rural style and modern day living as well as providing the convenience of easy access to Stratford-upon-Avon.

Offering between 1,360 and 2,258 sq. ft. the homes have ample contemporary space and are ideal for anyone from growing families looking for more accommodation through to downsizers who want an idyllic setting to enjoy.

Welford-on-Avon is a highly regarded Warwickshire village with an ideal location just a few miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and within easy reach of the larger centres of Leamington Spa and Solihull.

Welford-on-Avon benefits from a broad range of local amenities and a primary school with an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating.  For commuters, Stratford-upon-Avon train station runs services to Birmingham and Banbury and the M40 is just 15 miles from the development.

There are now just two homes remaining at The Arbour with prices starting from £439,950.

The show home is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10.30am to 5pm.
