PROPERTY AT HOME AT KINGS BARTON The city’s new development welcomes its first residents T he new community at Kings Barton by upmarket house builder CALA Homes is taking shape, with buyers benefiting from affordable pricing and all the benefits of a new- build home. Among the first residents to move in were Barry McGonagle and Tere Daly, who had previously been renting in Winchester. Barry says, “We had been trying to get on the property ladder in Winchester for years but had found it virtually impossible to do so. We had just decided to leave things for a while when we visited Kings Barton. We loved the development right away.” The straightforward moving process was a big bonus for the couple. Barry says, “We went from almost giving up any hope of owning our own home to moving into our new three-bedroom home within seven weeks. The sales team did everything, from liaising with the mortgage broker to dealing with the various aspects of the legal process.” Darren Wright and Rhianna Kerridge-Johns were also among the new community’s first residents. Location played a big factor in their decision to move to Winchester. Darren says, “We were living in Romsey but loved Winchester and a big plus was the fact that the development is only a short distance from the city centre. We both felt that buying at Kings Barton was good value for money. Not only have we benefited from new fixtures and fittings throughout our home, but it’s also very low maintenance too.” Daniela and Jonathan Knowles were renting in Winchester and had been living in the city for two years. Daniela says, “We knew we wanted to stay in Winchester – it’s a wonderful place to live, with its great shops, schools and easy access to London. When we visited Kings Barton we didn’t need to look at any other developments. We loved it straightaway.” Each home at Kings Barton features spacious interiors with high-quality specification. Currently available are two-bedroom apartments priced from £305,000, three-bedroom villas priced from £570,000 and four-bedroom homes priced from £540,000.
