Vicky Wakely and Giovanni De Lucia are enjoying the generous space available to them in their new home at Shoreham Crescent, our sold-out development in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.
Having previously lived in a two-bedroom bungalow, the couple decided that they would need a little more room to grow following the birth of their daughter, Lily, and made the move to their fabulous new three-bedroom ‘Arundel’ home in June.
“We were keen to move to a family-sized home to make way for Lily and were looking at developments across the area,” explains Vicky (39). “We went down to have a look at Shoreham Crescent one Friday evening and we just completely fell in love with it.
“Going from living in a bungalow to living in a three-storey, three-bedroom house has given us lots and lots of new space, and having a much bigger garden is absolutely brilliant.”
Vicky and Giovanni (40) took advantage of the Government’s popular 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%.
“Help to Buy made the move much more affordable for us, and the buying process was very smooth,” Vicky continues.
“The sales team were really nice and made everything a lot easier – they even gave a teddy bear to Lily! We’re all so happy with life at our new home.”
