Patricia Rodrigues and Ricardo Goncalves have lived all over the world, but the care and attention they received from an Oxfordshire home builder was above and beyond anything they had previously experienced.

After moving to the UK from Portugal, the couple were looking for a new home to bring up their two children, Salvador (9) and Martin (2), and after taking a wrong turn whilst visiting Wantage, they ended up at Bovis Homes' Letcombe Fields location.

"We turned right, then left and then we saw Bovis Homes. It looked like a nice site in a good location so we scheduled a visit with the sales advisor, Gary, for the following weekend,&quo... more

Image for Expanding Blaxills are part of the Bovis family!

Simon and Louise Blaxill are well acquainted with Bovis Homes, having first purchased a new home from the company in Romsey, Hampshire in 2013.

But as their family expanded, with two-year old daughter Lilly set to be joined by a baby sibling in time for Christmas 2016, they decided to move to another, bigger Bovis Home.

"We bought a three-bed Southwold at Bovis Homes' Abbotswood location almost four years ago, but with a growing family, we wanted more living space," explains Louise.

As well as gaining a new home, 10-year-old Nicole Collins also managed to find two new pals when she and her parents moved to Whitehouse Park in Milton Keynes.

Nicole, mum Mariola and dad Jason, previously lived in nearby Two Mile Ash and watched the creation of this new part of the community with interest. With the family welcoming a new addition later this year, the new homes arrived at a great time for the Collins family, as they were looking for a home which would provide more space for Nicole and their new baby boy.
