Backhouse welcomes new residents at Merlin Rise, Calne

Thomas Bye,30, and partner Amy Green, 28, moved into their contemporary style three bedroom detached home at Merlin Rise and couldn’t be happier.

The new homebuyers are delighted with the generous use of glazing throughout their Backhouse home. Thomas said: “Backhouse has incorporated far larger windows than you would normally expect in a new build. The use of glass creates so much natural light and brightness throughout the inside of our home.”

“The downstairs open-plan layout and design is a real show-stopper,” explained Amy who added. “We love the high ceilings, the way the space flows, and the way the practical storage, downstairs cloakroom and utility are all positioned in a ‘hub’, to maximise the large amount of flexible living area we have.”

The couple are also thrilled with the super sleek, stylish feel of the two upstairs bathrooms, one of them being their en-suite and the contemporary kitchen with bi-fold doors on to the garden is another great feature. The couple also chose to opt for two generous driveway parking places rather than a garage which Thomas said, ‘he knew would just be filled up with clutter.’

Amy added: “We were offered a wonderful selection of tiles and worktop finishes to choose from; all our Bosch appliances are integrated and included in the purchase price. The attention to detail and quality of the finish from top to bottom is so carefully done and feels incredibly luxurious throughout.”

Twelve months ago, the couple, had been looking for somewhere bigger in the area and originally, they intended to buy another second-hand property. But when they returned to view it, decided it was not right for them. The estate agent selling their property told them about the new collection of homes being built at Merlin Rise and Thomas and Amy wasted no time in making an appointment to visit the show home last February 2020.

Thomas said: “As soon as we approached the development, we liked the semi-rural location with the fields surrounding Merlin Rise. The show house was like nothing else we had seen on the market and we both agreed that the open plan layout and quality of interior design and finish was brilliant and offered a home we could both enjoy living in.”

Thomas and Amy reserved a style three bedroom home at £385,000 off plan using Help to Buy.

The collection of 21 three, four- and five-bedroom contemporary homes offer buyers an exclusive and distinctive edge, created to reflect Backhouse’s ethos of creating the best of 21st century modern living for buyers at affordable prices.

Prices at Merlin Rise start at £385,000 for a 3-bedroom home rising to £579,995 for a five bedroom home with a wide range of contemporary looking designs. The Sales & Marketing Suite is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 5pm.
