Image for Brand new Bovis Home trumps older properties for bridge buff Susan

When Susan Maxwell decided to move back to Shrewsbury after 20 years away, she chose a brand-new Montpellier home at Bovis Homes' Bowbrook Meadows location.

"At my time of life - I'm 65 now - I didn't want a project," she says. "I didn't want a house that needed anything doing to it. I've had the walled garden with the pretty cottage in the village but now I'm on my own, I wanted a place that's plug-and-play and ready to rock and roll!

"I lived in Shrewsbury for 35 years and brought up my family in Shropshire," adds Susan, explaining her close connection to the area.  "Then 20 years ago, I went to work in Aylesbury for the English Bridge Union, which is the governing body of the game ... more

Image for All smiles for a brand new start at Stanground

The housebuilding industry celebrates New Homes Week in May and a young Peterborough family are happy to sing the praises of new-build after buying a Bovis Home at Milbey Manor in Stanground.

The old saying 'new home, new baby' certainly came true for first-time buyers Blake and Sandy Van Eeden, because just a week after celebrating the birth of their first child Millie, the couple collected the keys to their new Bovis Home at the Cambridgeshire location - a move that was made possible thanks to the Government-backed scheme.

Help to Buy is exclusive to new homes and requires a five per cent deposit, allowing the buyer access to a 75 per cent mortgage and a Government equity loan of 20 per cent - and it helped the Van Eedens into a spacious, three bedroom 'Drayco... more

Image for New-build is the key to home-buying happiness for Locks Heath first-timers

Living close to her family was the main reason Kirsten Tejada started looking for a home in Locks Heath - but being able to buy a Bovis Home at the Hampshire location has proved to be a fabulous and unexpected new-build bonus.

"My parents live in the area and I've lived here all my life," she says. "I didn't want to move too far away. My husband Daniel and I have only been married for a year and we had been trying to find somewhere for ages. We looked at all sorts of houses and couldn't find the right thing."

Then a local estate agent pointed them in the direction of Bovis Homes' Gallons Way location so they decided to take a look - and they haven't lo... more
