Matthew & Megan
Twenty-somethings in Standish are receiving a helping hand onto the property ladder at Countryside’s Barrowcroft Green development, defying the average first time buyer age of 35*.
Due to complete summer 2016, Matthew and Megan will be the proud new owners of a three-bedroom Stamford house type, which features open-plan living and a master suite on the second floor.
“We went for a viewing during its opening week and fell in love with the home there and then – particularly the open-plan kitchen and living areas.
The area itself is quite desirable and we were really keen to move there as our family and friends are close by – the Help to Buy scheme really went a long way in making this a reality for us. We did have a look around some nearby developments before making a final decision, but the high quality and specification of Countryside’s homes was apparent.”

Rhonwen & Richard
After falling in love with Countryside’s high quality and spacious homes, each one coming complete with the developer’s enhanced specification, Rhonwen and Richard Bruce knew that they had found the perfect home at St Aidan’s Place.
The couple were able to break away from the rental trap and bought their first home together through the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme. They only needed a small deposit of 5%, making their home-buying dreams an affordable reality.
“Both of us were aware of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme and knew it would probably be the best way to buy a house when we were ready. The development and houses were beautiful and we didn’t realise how affordable it would be to buy one.”
