For Digital Integration Manager, Mario Munich and his wife Betty-Ann, their daughter's education was the sole motivator for relocating to a £650,000 four-bedroom detached house at The Croft - a stunning scheme located in the village of Binfield, Berkshire. Buying here helped to ensure their daughter, Amelia, didn't need to travel far to attend the prestigious, 'Holyport College'.
Speaking on their move, Mario comments: "We lived in Sunbury on Thames in a two-bedroom apartment before we moved to The Croft. We decided to move to Binfield primarily because our daughter will be attending Holyport College. It's a great school, and although there isn't a catchment area, we wanted to be nearby."
Discussing the development, Mario comments: "What we like best about the development is the landscaping, and the fact that all of the properties look different from one another. Shanly Homes clearly put a lot of thought into how each house was designed and arranged within the development."
He continues: "We also love the extra space in the property itself. It makes such a difference. The open-plan kitchen/living room was a key selling point for us, and the kitchen and bathroom came fully fitted in a colour scheme we're very fond of. In the coming months, we plan on working on the garden; filling it with plants and shrubs, and creating an area for everyone to relax. We shared a garden before; so, it's nice to have our own space outside."
He continues: "So far, Binfield seems like a lovely town. It's great in terms of outdoor activities as there are lots of parks nearby, as well as a tennis court and golf club. We haven't been here for long, so we still need to explore the rest of the area."
Speaking on their experience with Shanly Homes, Mario comments: "We have had such a great experience from Shanly Homes, they have been very understanding throughout the recent crisis. They didn't pressure us to buy quickly. We really appreciated this level of understanding during such a stressful time. They are also very quick to answer queries and solve problems. If were to buy again, we would definitely consider buying a Shanly home."
