When Dewhurst & Co posed the question ‘Can you describe your Dream Home?’ on Facebook we anticipated a healthy response. After all, as a nation we are hooked on TV property shows, and who doesn’t indulge in fantasies about their dream home now and again? But to say we were overwhelmed by your response would be an understatement.

More than a thousand people took part in our 20th anniversary competition, and we can now announce the lucky winner of a stylish iPad is Martin Glover from Royal Wootton Bassett. Martin told us his dream home was “a bungalow please”. Strange as it may seem, that’s a brief Swindon-based Dewhurst & Co are slightly more familiar with than the royal palaces, French castles and tropical villas cited by other more optimistic contestants!

Martin has lived in Royal Wootton Bassett near Swindon for 12 years, and as befits a town that attracted widespread attention because of its dignified role in military repatriations, he is an ex-serviceman, previously based at nearby RAF Lyneham. “My wife is the technical one in the family and already has her own iPad,” says Martin, “but I’m excited at my prize from Dewhurst and hopefully she’ll show me how to use it!”


“Congratulations to Martin and a big thank-you to everybody who took the time to share their property dreams with us,” says Chris Dewhurst, who founded Dewhurst & Co with his brother Mike in 1996. “One of the best things about being an estate agent is that you are involved with people’s biggest aspirations in life. In many cases you’re helping them make their dreams come true, and that applies equally to young couples taking their first step on the property ladder, growing families moving to a bigger home, or elder couples seeking the perfect retirement spot.”
