Kiln Walk is the perfect place for first-time buyers Laura and Ben

Date: Wednesday 25 October 2017

When first-time buyers Laura Adsett and Ben Matthews decided to step on the property ladder, they knew they’d found their ideal home at our Kiln Walk development in Hambrook, West Sussex.

The secluded development captured the couple’s hearts with the impeccable quality of its new-build homes, which are nestled within the beautiful rural setting of Hambrook.

Now Laura (32) and Ben (27) are eagerly waiting to move from her parents’ three-bedroom property in Middleton-on-Sea to their very own two-bedroom ‘Canford’ house later this year.

Laura says: “We’ve always wanted to get on to the property ladder and I think Hambrook is a beautiful place to live.

“Ben has grown up here and his family still live only a short walk from our new house, so it’ll be lovely to live closer to them.”

The countryside setting of Kiln Walk impressed Laura and Ben, who wanted their first home to be in a serene and tranquil environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

“I like that Kiln Walk is small, well-maintained and quiet,” adds Laura. “A major selling point for us is that the development is tucked away and quite close to the nature reserve, so you wouldn’t know it’s here if you were passing down the main road.

“However it’s not too far from the surrounding areas. Our commute will be under 30 minutes and we’re close to plenty of amenities like the Co-op down the road, as well as the local pubs and takeaways.”

Laura and Ben purchased their house with the Help to Buy scheme, which enables eligible first-time buyers and those with a property to sell to secure a Government loan for up to 20% of the full price of their new home, so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a deposit as low as 5%.

They were impressed with the customer service and guidance provided by the Sales Executives at Kiln Walk.

“The sales team have always been on hand if we needed help,” continues Laura. “We received a home pack with lots of information on the process and what to expect, so as first-time buyers we felt reassured during each step.”

As Laura and Ben go through the process of packing up to move into their new home, they’re enthusiastic about personalising their space and have taken advantage of our fabulous interior Options range available to homebuyers at Kiln Walk.

“We wanted a new-build house because Ben and I did not want to carry out any renovation work ourselves. Before moving in with my parents, we were renting a flat but found it difficult due to being restricted over what we could do with the décor.

“I’ve really enjoyed selecting a choice of kitchen units and bathroom tiles from the interior Options range. Personalising our home is really important to me as I’m passionate about interiors – I even have my own blog about it so I’m excited to post content showcasing our gorgeous new home at Kiln Walk!”
