News that a baby was on the way meant a rush for a new home for a young couple from Deal.
Chris Bailey and Carol Munnings were living in rented accommodation in the pretty seaside town when they found out that two were about to become three.
They headed to Ward Homes development, Sholden Fields, which is on the outskirts of Deal, and used the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme to buy a three-bedroom house for £224,995.
Carol says: “The fact we were able to take advantage of the Help to Buy scheme was immensely helpful as we only needed a 5% deposit.
“We are the first couple with a baby living on the development. Everyone is being very helpful and kind, from the sales staff to the local community. We certainly feel very settled as a family.”
Sholden Fields is a collection of traditional two, three and four-bedroom homes next to open fields.
Homes currently available include the Thornbury, a four-bedroom house from £304,995.
The Thornbury has a 24ft lounge with French doors leading to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has a utility area plus space for table and chairs. There is a separate dining room and a downstairs cloakroom.
There are three double bedrooms and a single, with a family bathroom. The master bedroom has an en-suite.
