“When we found the house at The Pines, we loved the idea that we could get a new home but still be in the countryside,” said Sarah. “We love being able to walk the dog or to go for run in the beautiful South Downs without getting in the car!

“The location is beautiful with Cowdray and Petworth nearby for lovely walks. There is good access to Haslemere and Midhurst for shopping and Liphook isn’t too far for us to get to the gym.”

Each home at The Pines at Brackenwood, a development of new homes at the prestigious King Edward VII Estate by award-winning CALA Homes, has all the benefits of a brand-new property with the added advantages of being set in outstanding countryside.

Layouts have been carefully designed for family life and the Todds’ sons now enjoy having their own den/playroom and the top floor bedrooms with their own shower room.

“Everyone at The Pines has been very friendly, it’s a lovely community and we love that the development here is not too big,” added Sarah. “Since moving in, the children have enjoyed being able to walk out the door and get straight on their bikes, and they’re hoping to make more new friends as the community grows.”

Ben and Sarah found the buying process at The Pines straightforward and appreciated the extra support from sales negotiator Caroline Fertnig who helped keep the chain on track.

“The Pines has been designed for families to enjoy from the moment they move in, and we’re delighted that Ben and Sarah and their family are already making the most of this lovely setting,” added Susan Wadsworth of selling agency Henry Adams.

CALA offer several schemes to help others take the same steps, including part exchange or help towards stamp duty, so now could be the perfect time to make your own move to The Pines.

Prices at The Pines at Brackenwood currently range from £850,000 to £990,000.
