Couple on cloud nine after coming back to Coningsby
The lure of Coningsby has drawn one family back to the Lincolnshire village two years after they moved down south for work.
John and Eileen Sinclair relocated to Stanmore in Middlesex when RAF man John was posted to the area.
But they missed the way of life in Coningsby so much that they decided to move back to the village with their two sons Trevor and John – even though John senior is still based in London.
And they found their perfect home at Chestnut Homes’ Kings Manor development on Hoplands Road.
John, 54, and Eileen, 55, purchased a three-bedroom detached property at the development, which they say is ideal for their growing sons.
Eileen said: “John is due out of the forces in three years and we were looking for stability for the children. We had lived in Coningsby before and we all liked it, so we decided to move back. It’s a very friendly and sociable place and I really like that.
“We knew some people who had already moved to Kings Manor and they told us how nice the houses were so that’s what initially attracted us to the development. What appealed to us most about the house type we chose was how spacious it is – the bedrooms are an ideal size for the boys.”
The couple were able to purchase their new home with just a five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage using the Help to Buy scheme. The remaining 20 per cent of the purchase price is provided as an equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years.
Eileen said: “By reducing the size of the deposit and the mortgage that we needed, the scheme helped us get the house that we wanted, and the customer service we received from Chestnut Homes was fantastic. The sales advisors kept us fully updated on how things were going. I couldn’t fault them.”
Kings Manor is located on the fringes of Coningsby, and Eileen added: “It’s ideal for us. We’re very close to the centre of the village and we’re not too close to the RAF camp. We’ve made friends with the neighbours, and all the workmen on site have been really friendly. There’s just such a lovely atmosphere around the development.”
Kings Manor is open daily to visitors from 10.30am - 5.30pm.Back To News
