Upsizing to a new property at Croft Gardens in Reading, a couple have been able to break away from renting using the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme to secure their dream home and think about starting a family.

Ben Carr and Victoria Wilson, were previously living in a two-bedroom flat in Newbury before moving to David Wilson Homes’ Hyde End Road development with their French Bulldogs, Ronnie and Gus.

Originally from Boston in Lincolnshire and Brighton, the couple have been committed to saving money each month and took advantage of Help to Buy to begin their family planning in a beautiful four bedroom Bayswater style townhouse.

Ben said: “We didn’t need more space immediately but knew we’d need it in the not so distant future when we look to start a family. It was also important for us that we had somewhere where we were able to have the dogs, so outside space was important.

“Help to Buy was a huge boost for us and frankly we wouldn’t have been able to afford such a spacious property had it not been available.

“We also committed to each saving a set amount per month since Christmas 2015 and we stopped going on holidays and breaks together which were previously a big part of our life.”

Ben and Victoria are reaping the benefits of purchasing a new build property, whilst enjoying the excellent location of Croft Gardens and the friendly community that comes with it.

Ben added: “Vicki works in Reading town centre and I’m in Maidenhead so Reading was a good option for us both from a commute perspective. Being so close to the M4 is also a bonus as we both travel home to see families often.

“We would definitely recommend David Wilson to our friends and family, as the team were really helpful and always available to answer questions. Little things such as the Sales team going out of their way to get us the specific shower that we wanted in the en-suite were greatly appreciated.”

There is currently a selection of two, three and four bedroom homes available at Croft Gardens with prices starting from £279,000.
