Coach house luxury for first time buyers in Bordon

A Bordon-based couple who have made their first house together a coach house are really enjoying its unique benefits

Modern living

Callum, 30, and Lucas, 27,  previously rented a flat in nearby Camberley, but when the opportunity to buy their own coach house property with Taylor Wimpey and become part of the Dukes Quarter community came up, they wanted to seize it. A Coach House is designed with the living area above a garage or a carport.

Callum said: “Buying in Hampshire is a challenge, as the prices are high, which is often to the disadvantage of first time buyers like myself and my partner. Our coach house initially stood out to us due to its affordability. What’s not to like about getting a lot more for our money?”

“We certainly got everything we wanted and more with our home at Dukes Quarter. Our coach house combines the benefits of both flat and home living. We like only having one floor to maintain, while also having our own entrance and not being overlooked by our neighbours or sharing all four walls, as much as we like them! Independence is so important for us, so we’re really grateful to have the features we do.”

As much as their property is the most important thing to them, both Callum and Lucas, who work in civil aviation, already feel part of the wider community, and have really appreciated the efforts of the Taylor Wimpey sales team to engage with them during the sales process and instantly make them feel invested in Dukes Quarter.

“The development is well balanced and nicely thought out. With summer on the way, we’re looking forward to making more use of the green spaces and walking areas! As we’re both professionals, it’s ideal being in such a great spot to access the nearby A3 and M3,  so we can fulfil our work commitments.

Keys to a dream home

“We bought our property unseen, but by the time we got the keys to our home, it was like we’d been living in Bordon already. This was down to the Taylor Wimpey sales team at Dukes Quarter, who really sold the area and the coach house to us. They took the time to walk us through the site plan, show us how our home fitted in and how the community was set up to benefit residents. We really felt a part of the overall vision of the development, which as a buyer is awesome.”

Reflecting on the whole process as first time buyers looking for not only their first but their dream home, Callum said: “Everything has really added up for us. As first time buyers, there’s a lot to consider and take in. The pressure is on for you to locate the area you want to buy in and judge how far you stretch to get your hands on your dream home. Fortunately for me and Lukas, we’re thrilled with what we’ve ended up with. We love our property and love where we are”
