Rosie and Catherine Powell-Lunt started their search for a new home in mid-2017 when they found out their shared employer was relocating them from London to Reading. When visiting the local area, they stumbled on Arborfield Green and immediately felt at home. However, the couple were eager to weigh-up their options before signing on the dotted line.

After seven months of searching and over 50 home viewings, the couple knew Barkham Place at Arborfield Green was the place they wanted to call home. While visiting other homes, they kept finding themselves back at Arborfield Green and couldn’t ignore the fact it felt right.

They visited existing homes and eventually concluded that a new build was better suited to their needs. The large windows, natural light, as well as the garden and high-quality finish sealed the deal for them.

As nature lovers, they were drawn to the greenery of the development and the focus placed on preserving the environment and native animals. With 5km of walking pathways, 2.5km of bridleways and 4km of cycle paths, there is plenty of outdoor space for Rosie and Catherine to enjoy in their spare time. The extra room and greenery has encouraged them to adopt a dog that will be joining the family and make the perfect companion weekend nature excursions.

Speaking of their decision to move to Barkham Place, Rosie and Catherine explained: “The search for a new home was exhaustive as we wanted to make sure we had covered all of our bases. But Barkham Place was definitely the right fit for us. When we first visited the development, we had just missed the last home for Waterman’s View (the previous phase) and made sure to stay in touch with the sales team about Barkham Place. When we found out about the launch, we made sure we were the first through the door at the launch event and the first to make an offer.

“We’re very excited about the move and are already planning how to decorate. Rosie is the gardener and is selecting plants for the garden to be in sync with the natural flora at Arborfield Green. Catherine is the interior designer and is choosing the colour scheme for the home.”

Barkham Place is comprised of 1 & 2-bedroom apartments, 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom homes, with prices starting from £299,950.
