“We couldn’t wait for all our friends and family to see the apartment”

08 Jun 2016

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to Rachel and Peter as they started their journey with Radian Homes into a brand new apartment in Southampton.

The excited couple have now moved into their brand new Radian Homes apartment and we’ve caught up with them to see how they’re settling in.

Before moving into their fantastic new home in Southampton, Rachel and Peter were temporarily renting in Shirley, situated on the outskirts of Southampton, whilst looking for somewhere more permanent and in a more central location.

They both fell in love with their new home straight away, “we loved that the property was brand new and we would be the first people to live there. The flat is of really good quality at an affordable price”


Rachel and moved into their brand new Radian Homes apartment at Park Reach, Southampton using the ‘Rent to Buy’ scheme. This means monthly rents are approximately 20% less than private rent, giving them the flexibility of renting privately whilst saving towards their future goals of owning a home.

When asked if they had a favourite place to visit near their home, “On sunny days it’s nice to walk in Queen’s Park and then to eat out at one of the restaurants on Oxford Street. There’s also a great coffee shop next to the flats called Central Coffee”, Rachel added, “It is also in an ideal location, close to our places of work – and our favourite restaurants!”

Rachel and Peter’s apartment has 3 bedrooms and an impressive living/dining & kitchen space that’s much bigger than they expected “We love the clean decor of the flat and the open plan living area which feels spacious and airy” Peter added, “The balcony has a beautiful view out across the church and will be perfect in the summer”.


After getting the keys to their new home, Rachel and Peter couldn’t wait to have friends and family over, “after moving in all of our boxes we had family over to celebrate with prosecco”, Rachel added, “They were surprised at how big and spacious it was. They were impressed with the professional look and finish”

Rachel concluded by saying “I would definitely recommend Radian Homes, they have been very helpful, friendly and have made the moving process run smoothly”

We are thrilled to bits that Rachel and Peter are happy and settled in their new home. If you’re house hunting in the Southampton area, whether you’re looking to buy or to rent, Radian Homes have plenty of homes available. Could your future home just be a click away?
