Upsizing to the Perfect Family Home at King’s Gate

Posted 21 May 2019 by Helen Christie

Alan and Sara had never considered a new build home until they visited Bloor Homes’ King’s Gate development…

Buying a new build home hadn’t even been an option for Alan and Sara, but that all changed when they discovered Bloor Homes’ King’s Gate development in Amesbury.

Alan, 39, and Sara, 36, found their ideal family four-bedroom detached home at King’s Gate, which is located off Penny Lane. With their two children, Ella, 12, and Leilani, 6, growing up and space becoming a premium, Alan and Sara were eager to upsize from their previous home, just a mile down the road.

The couple initially started searching for second-hand properties to refurbish, but none of them fitted the bill, and it wasn’t until the pair made an impromptu visit to King’s Gate, that they found exactly what they were looking for. The couple were so impressed with the development that they put their deposit down three days later.

Alan says: “Like most homebuyers, floor space and location were very important for us. Sara and I are both from nearby Salisbury and both our children are both settled down in school, so we didn’t want to leave the area. None of the second-hand homes we saw took our fancy and after driving past the signs for King’s Gate we decided to check out the development. It turned out to be a good decision and, after a constructive chat with the sales team, we found a spacious home being built in a quiet corner of the development – it was just perfect for us. From there, everything fell into place as a buyer came in for our home and we were able to put down a deposit three days later.”

The pair purchased their home off-plan and this meant they had the opportunity to choose their own flooring and tiles.

Alan says: “Buying off-plan gave us the opportunity to make our new house feel more unique immediately, something which would have taken a lot of time had we bought a second-hand property. Our new home offers us plenty of space to grow as a family and with some nice green space surrounding our house, we can spend the summer months relaxing outside. We’re all settling in really well at King’s Gate and are looking forward to what the future brings.”
