Help To Buy Scheme Brings New Home Joy For Witham St Hughs Family
27 Jul 2015

When one family’s search for a brand new home took them to the Lincolnshire village of Witham St Hughs, it soon made it to the top of their desirable places to live list.

After falling in love with what is now their brand new home, the development and the area as a whole, Wendy Mount and Merv Tate – along with their two children – are relishing their new surroundings.

The couple were looking to move from their 1990s property in Lincoln to a new build home close by, but first considered Linden Homes Midlands’ Cygnet Place development too far from the Cathedral city.

Wendy explained: “We wanted to live fairly close to Lincoln and thought at the start of our search that Witham was too far from Merv’s work or the children’s schools. We visited the Linden Homes development anyway, more as a reason to discount it – but we were proved wrong!

“The quality of the build and finish of the homes are better than we had seen with other developers, and we fell in love with the house. Witham is a lovely village, and closer to Lincoln than we first thought – so living here doesn’t present any issues with travelling to school or commuting to work.”

The spacious Haddon design house is the couple’s first home together, with Wendy and Merv using the popular Help to Buy incentive – which can save money, time and stress when it comes to finding and buying that dream home.

Wendy added: “Without Help to Buy and the excellent guidance of the sales team, we wouldn’t have been able to buy what we now see as our dream home. The scheme worked perfectly for us.

“We are chuffed to bits with the house and are looking forward to putting our stamp on it, as well as enjoying the lovely surroundings of Witham as a family.”

Cygnet Place currently offers a superb selection of 50 brand new desirable family homes, right at the heart of the community.

The carefully designed three and four-bedroom homes boast the latest designer kitchens and bathrooms, spacious energy efficient accommodation and everything that modern life demands.

A number of the homes are ready to move into now.

Offering the best of both worlds, Witham St Hughs presents a semi-rural lifestyle surrounded by open countryside while being midway between commutable Newark-on-Trent and Lincoln.

So whether you have an existing property to sell, looking to downsize or fancy a change of scenery to somewhere with a quieter pace – Linden Homes can help you achieve your goals.
