"We were thrilled to secure our dream four-bedroom home "

Date Posted

As a couple looking for a property spacious enough to accommodate their family, Jules and Lou found a four bedroom home at Limewood Place ideal for their family. Just two months after moving into their new home, the family is settling into village life in Sherfield on Loddon and making the most of all the space they have on offer.

“With two children, and ageing parents living close-by, we knew that Shared Ownership would be our best option to be able to afford a property large enough to cater for our changing needs. After having several offers fall through, we stumbled upon Abri Homes’ development at Limewood Place when driving through the village of Sherfield on Loddon.

“To our delight, we found out that not only did they offer Shared Ownership, but they also offered spacious homes as large as five-bedrooms. We registered our interest immediately and regularly stopped in the village to peer through the site hoardings and watch the build progress. After a lot of patient waiting, we were thrilled to secure our dream four-bedroom home as soon as it went on sale.

“Having moved around a lot in our careers, it has been hard to feel completely settled in one place. However, within weeks of moving into Limewood Place, we already felt at home. This property provides us with everything we could ever need and more from a home including a utility room, ample off-street parking and plenty of storage. We feel incredibly lucky to be living here.

“The house itself was originally intended for the open market, so we were very grateful to have the opportunity to purchase it on Shared Ownership. The layout is perfect for family living and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into the build and design of each room. We even have an ensuite bathroom and garage, which are unusual to find in Shared Ownership properties."

“For us, the best thing about this property is the location. Not only are we close to Basingstoke and Reading but we can easily commute to work and are within an hour of most of our extended family, who visit regularly. Having both grown up in the south of England, Shared Ownership has enabled us to stay close to our families in a property we never thought we would be able to afford in this part of the country.

“Being in a village gives an intimate feel, whilst the design of the development has given us a sense of privacy, with only 15 houses including our own. We’ve already been getting involved in village events including a Remembrance Day parade and can’t wait for our first Christmas in our new home. Despite Sherfield on Loddon being a small village, its three pubs and one café create a real community feel and have allowed us to throw ourselves into village life.

“We started by buying a 25% share in the property, but hope to staircase and buy further shares in the property in the future.

“Having gone through the process of purchasing a property through Shared Ownership with Abri Homes, we would absolutely recommend it to others. The process with Abri Homes was positive throughout and meant we were able to build a relationship with the site manager who supported us in our journey.

“We really appreciate everything that Abri Homes has done for us and cannot thank them enough for helping us secure our dream home.”
