New homes at Crowdhill Green tick every box for Keith and Linda

Excellent build quality, a superb location and great customer service made Bloor Homes’ Crowdhill Green development the perfect choice for Keith and Linda Marsh.

Keith, a senior solutions architect, and Linda, a doctors’ receptionist, purchased a four-bedroom detached Wakehurst house type at the popular development in Fair Oak, after relocating from Chineham, Basingstoke.

Keith, 61, said: “We were initially looking at buying a pre-owned property in the same area and viewed several houses, which weren’t quite what we were looking for. After we discovered Crowdhill Green, the Wakehurst just ticked all our boxes and the development was perfect for our needs.

“The location was very important for us because we wanted to be close to our family in Dorset, while still not too far away from our workplaces in Basingstoke. Stoke Woods is also next to the development, which provides plenty of walking paths.

“When opting to buy a new build house, what appealed to us at first was the ability to put our own stamp on the design features. For instance, we liked the prospect of designing the garden from a blank canvas as we had many ideas of how to use the space once we move in.”

“We have already met some very friendly neighbours here at the development and as we are all new to the area we have that in common.  We are looking forward to building a strong community and things like the community centre at Crowdhill Green will definitely help.”

To make the buying process as easy and hassle-free as possible, Keith and Linda Marsh took advantage of Bloor’s Home Exchange Scheme.

Under the scheme, Bloor Homes offers buyers a suggested asking price for their old home based on three independent valuations from local estate agents, meaning they don’t have to worry about finding a buyer for the property themselves.

Commenting on their experience using the scheme, Keith added: “Using Home Exchange made the whole buying experience much simpler and helped us to concentrate on moving to the new home when the house was ready.

“Throughout the purchase, the Bloor sales team provided us with regular updates and assisted us wherever possible helping to make things run smoothly. They provided a fantastic level of care. The house build was completed by the dates we were initially given, and the Home Exchange offer was very favourable. 

“So, we were very happy with the buying experience provided by Bloor Homes and would have no hesitation in recommending them to family and friends.”
