As new figures by Bloor Homes reveals that one in ten homeowners are driven to move to secure a home within the catchment of high quality schools, the award-winning housebuilder is encouraging parents in Waterlooville to make the move to its Berewood development now, ahead of the school application deadline in January.
For homebuyers, the number one priority is schools – reiterated by recent research published by the Daily Telegraph. Indeed, of the 2,000 people surveyed in Bloor Homes’ survey, nearly a quarter of homeowners considered a school as ‘the heart of the community’, while the ability to walk to school also ranked high on parents’ wish list when looking for a new home.
Bloor Homes is therefore keen to assist prospective purchasers in Waterlooville to secure their dream home now to ensure they stand the best chance of getting their child into their school of choice for 2015.
The Berewood development in Waterlooville provides the perfect location for families looking to live within close proximity to excellent schools. Within easy reach of the development are a range of schools which achieved an Ofsted ‘Good’ rating on last inspection, including Springwood Infant and Junior, Purbrook Junior, St Peters Catholic Primary and Oaklands Catholic Senior School and Sixth Form College. Providing children with the best start in life, a brand new community school, Berewood Primary School, has launched on the development itself just a couple of weeks ago.
Martin Crick, Sales Director at Bloor Homes comments: ‘Needing additional space for a growing family and being within easy reach of great school goes hand-in-hand for many families. That’s why finding a modern home in a desirable location is on the wish list for many house hunters at this time.
‘With recent changes to the mortgage application process, anecdotal evidence also indicates it is taking longer for people to secure their dream home. So if you want to ensure you are living in the correct area ahead of January applications, now really is the time to be making the move.’
A selection of three and four-bedroom family homes are currently available for sale at Berewood, priced from £350,000 (£280,000 under Help to Buy). Committed to delivering the perfect place for families to call home, the new houses have all been carefully designed to fit the needs of modern living, offering open-plan living areas plus high quality fixtures and fittings, alongside generous rear gardens, garages and driveways.
Located just outside the thriving market town of Waterlooville, Berewood is a unique new ‘Garden City’ development designed by world-renowned architect, Robert Adams. Committed to delivering an inclusive, sustainable new community to local people, the development will also provide schools, pubs and a selection of shops, promising residents even greater convenience. For commuters, the development is ideally situated just a minutes’ drive from the A3, and less than 10 minutes from Bedhampton railway station, providing national links via Portsmouth and London Waterloo stations.
