Victoria and Declan's ideal countryside move for their four-legged friend

With a superb rural location, Banbury Rise was the ideal option for first time buyers and dog lovers Victoria and Declan

Business Development Manager, Victoria and Managed Document Specialist, Declan purchased a four-bedroom detached Arlington house type after previously living with parents in Didcot, South Oxfordshire and Horsham, West Sussex.

The couple always dreamed of having a dog and thanks to the countryside location, plenty of open green space and flexible house layout, this has now become a reality.

Victoria Peddle, 26, said: “Our puppy Jasper is the perfect addition to our family and we are delighted that living at Banbury means he has a great life! 

“We love Banbury and the surrounding area, so, the way the development is positioned provides us with a very easy access to the local amenities. We’ve got the best of both worlds, beautiful countryside views, whilst still close to the town.

“Everything we need is right on our doorstep.  I go to the local gym, which is very easy to get to and we love going to the nearby pub, especially as it’s dog friendly, so we can take Jasper with us.”

The development was recommended to the new home owners by family members, who have also bought a Bloor home.

Victoria explains: “My sister had a great experience buying Bloor Homes and we are so impressed with our new home.  The Arlington has a perfect flow allowing us to grow our family and not have to think about moving to a bigger house any time soon.

“Our favourite room is the kitchen because we spend most of our time there, it is perfect for entertainment thanks to its open-plan layout. The outdoor space feeds in very nicely with the kitchen, which is ideal for friends and family gatherings.

“Another reason that attracted us to Banbury Rise was its perfect travel links. It is so easy for commuting to get to London, Oxford or anywhere else.”

The couple took advantage of the Government backed Help to Buy* scheme, which they found extremely beneficial.

Victoria added: “The Help to Buy scheme is a very effective way of helping people out, it enabled us to push ourselves a bit more and purchase a long-term property.

“The Sales Team was great in explaining the scheme and keeping us informed of the progress. We are extremely pleased with the buying experience and have no hesitations in recommending Bloor Homes to family and friends.”
