Sophie Hinchliffe and husband Jamie have given their former home a £600,000 gift to a happy family
Sophie Hinchliffe has delighted her followers by gifting their £600,000 home to a needy family after moving into their farmhouse in Essex.
The 32-year-old, who is best known as Mrs Hinch, recently bought a £1million farmhouse with her husband and didn’t need the capital to sell their home in Maldon, Essex.
The social media influencer has her own cleaning books, best-selling memoirs and fondly remembers recording her cleaning tips in the gifted property.
Sophie said she decided not to take advantage of her old home The sun: “We didn’t sell it – we don’t rent the house, we’re just handing over our keys to an incredible family to start a new chapter in their life so they too can build the life they dreamed of.”
“That I am even able to do this is something I will never truly believe and will never stop being thankful for. But for me personally, it’s one of the most incredible feelings in the world to see another family have the relief and happiness in their lives that they deserve because they’ve been through so much.”
Sophie, who lives with her husband Jamie, 42, their two children, Ronnie and Lennie, and cocker spaniel Henry, is divided over the seemingly friendly act.
“It’s nice of her to lend her house to someone,” said one Twitter user.
Another wrote: “What a kind and thoughtful lady”
A third added: “This story is not as fabulous as you make it out to be. You’re led to believe that she’s letting a random homeless stranger move in rent-free. Instead, it’s just her sister (who might be homeless and doesn’t have a pot to p***).”
Sophie has shown off renovations to her new five bedroom home to her 4.5million Instagram followers.
A video showcases the stunning master bedroom, which includes a four-poster bed, chaise lounge, and chandeliers.
It also has matching cabinets to complement the space.
To show her gratitude to her fans, Sophie said: “Thank you all for following our journey from start to finish, it has been an adventure to say the least. Please know I see you all. Forever grateful.”
Close friend and TV personality Stacey Solomon showed her excitement, commenting: “Can’t wait for the sleepovers! Jamie can walk up and down with Henry😂🖤🤍”
Ms Hinch’s net worth is estimated at £1.5million.
