Camera restorer focuses on new home in Kington

A full value part exchange scheme offered by Bloor Homes enabled a Hereford couple to zoom into the house of their dreams at Kington Park.

Islwyn and Annette Bithell had visited the Kington development as soon as the showhome was opened and had immediately fallen in love with one of the proposed houses but at the time they were struggling to sell their home in Stapleton. Six months later, following a call from Bloor’s Sales Advisor, the couple’s dreams came true.
Islwyn, who restores and collects antique cameras, explained: “I was born and raised in Kington - my parents still live there and I’d like to be closer to them as they get older. We also simply loved the house. It’s got a fantastic specification and also benefits from a lovely big garden and fabulous views over the Bradnor Hills – perfect for a keen photographer!

“However, when we found a buyer, the chain broke down. We thought the house that we’d set our sights on at Kington Park would be snapped up by the time we managed to sell our bungalow but then we got a call that really lifted our spirits.

“Bloor was offering to pay us full market value for our bungalow and that made all the difference. We didn’t have to worry about a thing apart from packing up our belongings and moving in – it just made things simple and stress free. We chose to use Bloor’s recommended solicitor - who was fantastic - and with her help we were able to move in within just four weeks. We’re now settling in to our fantastic new home. It’s really nice to be back home and we’re looking forward to enjoying our retirement here.”

Islwyn and Annette bought a 4-bedroom Ryhill style detached property on the development where now only five properties still remain. All the homes are spacious 4- and 5-bedroom styles, each with two ensuite bathrooms as well as a double garage and all are available to purchase under Bloor’s part exchange scheme.

One Ryhill is still available and ready to move into straight away. It comes complete with two ensuites and flooring throughout as well as a generous south facing garden for the purchase price of £279,950. Bloor is offering to pay the Stamp Duty, survey fee, and legal fees on this property and will even pay up to £1,000 towards removal costs.
Sales Advisor, Jan Bromage said: “We were delighted that we were able to offer our part-exchange scheme to help Islwyn and Annette buy their new home and we’re offering an amazing deal on the last Ryhill style house that will effectively enable the purchaser to move in for free. There are currently five fabulous homes available here, each one ideal for a large or growing family, so there’s still a good choice of homes on offer.

“All remaining houses may be considered for part exchange – it’s a popular scheme that has been taken up by around a quarter of purchasers so far - so if you are looking for a new home but are concerned that you have a current property to sell first, come along and talk through your options with us.”

Kington Park is located on the rural edge of Kington, off the Old Eardisley Road, surrounded by open countryside and rolling Herefordshire hills. The town is surrounded by quiet country lanes but it’s only around 20 miles – or half an hour’s drive - from Hereford, making it a perfect place for those looking for a peaceful home life, but needing to commute to the city to work.

Bloor also has one remaining property at its Venns Park development, just off the prestigious Aylesford Hill in Hereford. The 4-bedroom detached is a Stanton style home which includes an ensuite bathroom, garage and parking. It comes ready to move into with flooring throughout, blinds to the windows, light fittings and turf to the rear garden. The house is priced £279,950.
