From renting to owning: family buy their perfect home in Haling Place
Dan Stanciu, his wife Ofelia and their daughter Ariana liked their rented property at Haling Place so much that they have since decided to buy a house there permanently.
Dan, a Software Engineer comments: “We were living in another three bedroom house in Haling Place which we loved. When another home came onto the market we were delighted because we wanted to stay in the neighbourhood; it’s a really quiet and relaxing environment, perfect for us and our daughter.”
The location of Haling Place, which is seven miles from Cambridge, made the home even more attractive for Dan and Ofelia. Dan remarks: “The quick commute time to work means that I can cycle into Cambridge which is a lovely route when the weather is nice. It’s also great for Ofelia who can get to work in less than 30 minutes.”
Ofelia, an IT Consultant in Cambridge, has found the welcoming community atmosphere at Haling Place a key factor in their purchase. She comments: “Haling Place mostly consists of young couples with children and the people we’ve met here are very friendly, sometimes we get together for a BBQ! It’s been lovely for us and Ariana who’s three to meet new friends in the neighbourhood.”
Angela Walsh, Head of Sales and Marketing at Annington, comments: “Haling Place has been a real success with a wide range of buyers. Our intention was to create a friendly, welcoming environment and it is wonderful to hear that Dan and his family have enjoyed their time at Haling Place so much that they have decided to buy here after renting. We look forward to continuing to welcome more families to Haling Place in the future.”
Dan adds: “Annington has been great in facilitating the quick purchase process of our new home and we plan to stay in Haling Place for a long time, the surrounding area is well looked after and we are very happy with our new home.”
