A family affair for Cambridge house hunters
House hunting in Cambridge has turned into a family affair for Tim and Charlotte Coomber. After buying a new home in Haling Place, Waterbeach, the couple have since seen their parents and friends buy a home there too!
The couple had been keen to move out of their Cambridge apartment and find a spacious home with a garden. Tim, a transmission manager for BT, comments: “Our friends moved to Haling Place first and when we visited them we saw how lovely the properties were, so we decided to look into buying a home there. Since then my parents have bought a house as well as some of our other friends! I used to live in the area and I know it well, so it’s really nice to live here again.”
Tim and Charlotte are very happy that they have now found a spacious home. Charlotte, a community staff nurse, says: “We can see ourselves living here for a long time especially now that we have the space to start a family. The house is in an ideal location as we are both still close to work which is brilliant. We have always wanted a dog and now that we have a garden we are looking forward to playing with our new puppy!”
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 to breathe new life into the homes. It is wonderful to hear that Tim and Charlotte have joined their friends in buying a home at the development and that Tim’s parents have followed suit. This is testament to the community feel here and we look forward to welcoming more families and friends to Haling Place in the future.”
Tim adds: “The service from Annington was superb. They recommended an excellent solicitor who facilitated a smooth completion and exchange process. The sales team were very accommodating and allowed us to look at the properties whenever we wanted; they were all very helpful and approachable.”
Haling Place is ideally located, with nearby Waterbeach High Street offering a selection of shops, cafes and pubs, as well as a library.
