Homeowner finds dream home at Lantern Croft development

David Moncrieff, a 71-year-old retiree, embarked on a transformative journey from the hustle and bustle of urban life to the serenity of countryside living with Taylor Wimpey East Anglia.

Finding his dream home

Reflecting on his past and aspirations, David shares, "It's wonderful to get off the treadmill." The longing for rural tranquillity persisted for over two decades, even amidst the sorrow of losing his wife six years ago. Watford's traffic and congestion served as catalysts for change, nudging David to explore the potential of Cambridgeshire.

However, the path to his dream home was not without its hurdles. Initial setbacks only reinforced David's resolve as he found himself drawn back to Lantern Croft, David explained: "My previous house was a three-bedroom but I had always felt cramped there. I needed a larger house for the extra space, so I was shown round a Midford which has four bedrooms, and I immediately fell in love with it. That was the one! I was impressed with the wide hallway and the large lounge and the overall layout. Plenty of room for me to spread out, and entertain guests.”

Opting for a new build was a natural choice for David. Yet, beyond the structural appeal, it was the exceptional service of Taylor Wimpey's Sales Team that left a lasting impression. David said: "Working with the Lantern Croft sales team was an absolute pleasure. Their dedication, professionalism, and genuine warmth made the entire home buying process not just seamless but genuinely enjoyable. Rachael, Linda, and Zoe went above and beyond, guiding me every step of the way with patience and a touch of humour. They didn't just sell me a house; they welcomed me into a community. Taylor Wimpey East Anglia should be proud to have such an exceptional team representing them.”

David said of his home buying journey: “Choosing Taylor Wimpey and utilising their Easymover scheme was a game-changer for me. The entire home buying process was made remarkably stress-free, thanks to their efficient and supportive team. Easymover smoothed out any wrinkles, allowing me to focus on the excitement of finding my dream home at Lantern Croft. I'm grateful for the ease and convenience it provided, ensuring that my transition to countryside living was as seamless as possible.”

Now settled into the comforts of his Midford home, David relishes the harmonious blend of convenience and tranquillity that Lantern Croft offers. "I've found two excellent pubs by the river," he shares, finding solace in the warmth of his newfound community.

David extends his heartfelt recommendation to all those seeking a place to call home. "I wholeheartedly recommend Lantern Croft to anyone seeking countryside bliss. From the picturesque surroundings to the convenience of Ely's amenities, it's a haven worth considering. But what truly sets it apart is the exceptional team at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia. Their dedication, warmth, and genuine care for their customers elevate the experience from house hunting to finding a true home. Lantern Croft isn't just a development; it's a community waiting to welcome you with open arms.”
