Local housebuilder Crest Nicholson has only seven homes remaining at its Albany Wood development in Bishops Waltham. Ideally located within the rolling Hampshire countryside, the remaining three and four bedroom homes are perfect for growing families looking to move up the property ladder, or those looking to strike a balance between town and country living.


Of remaining homes, the three bedroom ‘Hatfield’ house is ready to move into now. On the ground floor, it comprises a kitchen-dining area and benefits from a separate living room with direct access onto the private garden through double French doors. Located off the hallway is ample storage and a WC. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two of which are double, with the third single bedroom doubling up as a nursery, hobby room or dedicated work-from-home space. The main bedroom benefits from its own en suite, with the remaining bedrooms sharing a well-proportioned family bathroom.


January can be a popular time for home movers, with Crest Nicholson welcoming many movers into their brand new homes during this time. For anyone making the move, Crest Nicholson has a range of tips to help make the process easier:


  1. If you’re buying new, make the most of the support from your housebuilder, who can answer any questions you have throughout the process
  2. Make the most of support schemes offered by housebuilders, such as Crest Nicholson’s 105% Part Exchange. Through the scheme, Crest Nicholson acts as the cash buyer for your home, offering 100% based on the valuations of the property, plus an extra 5% of the offer price
  3. Opt for a readymade, new build home so you can forget the DIY and don’t have to change a thing once you move in
  4. In your new home, drop round a card to new neighbours – it’s a great way to make friends and build community spirit
