Sandra Mitchell had a few extra reasons to feel cheerful about deciding to go to Bovis Homes' sparkling show home opening weekend at Chestnut Place in Ashford, Kent.
Not only was she impressed with the finish and all inclusive features she discovered in the three bedroom townhouse called The Deverell, but she had a nice surprise after entering Bovis Homes' free draw being held to celebrate the opening.
As the first name out of the hat when the draw was made, Sandra won £250 of Eurostar vouchers and her only problem now is who to take with her when she cashes in her first prize.
"I haven't decided that yet," she said. "But it was a lovely surprise. I haven't even decided where I'm going to go - maybe Paris - but I'm going to enjoy it wherever it is!
"I'm certainly glad I went," added Sandra, who has two grown-up daughters and has been a long-term resident of Lympne, near Hythe. "Not only was the prize a wonderful surprise, but I was impressed with the quality of the homes. They had a better finish than some of the other new-build I have seen and I liked the extras you get in the kitchen."
The Deverell has two bedrooms with ensuite and a spacious family room with French doors opening out to the garden.
A fitted kitchen opens onto the family room and other attractive features that will add to the Chestnut Place experience include a first floor sitting room with Juliet balcony, a family bathroom and a second floor shower room.
Bovis Homes' all-inclusive package also means the homebuyer will get fitted wardrobes to all three bedrooms, integrated appliances in the kitchen and a choice of co-ordinating wall tiles.
Prices for three bedroom homes at Chestnut Place start at £199,950 and Bovis Homes have a number of purchase assistance schemes available. These include The Perfect 10, an exclusive 10% deposit mortgage package with a competitive interest rate in association with Barclays, their shared equity scheme Jumpstart and Home Exchange, where Bovis Homes will help homeowners sell their existing house.
