Catherine and Simon enjoy a fresh start at Broadgate Park
Catherine and Simon Honeyman are enjoying their new lifestyle at Broadgate Park
Catherine and Simon Honeyman are enjoying their new lifestyle after moving from central Norwich to Broadgate Park.
The couple decided that the time was right to move from their four-storey townhouse to a brand new five-bedroom detached ‘Wilton’ design at the development, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Catherine (60) says: “Living in a four-storey townhouse just wasn’t practical anymore. We have a two-year-old grandson and going up and down all those floors with him was hard work.
“We like the Sprowston area and started to look for something a little more spacious. We visited Broadgate Park and absolutely loved it. The layout of the development and a good amount of space between the houses was a great selling point for us.”
Catherine and Simon moved into their new home in July 2016, and have made full use of their new surroundings to create their perfect lifestyle.
“We are within walking distance of a lovely golf course, which we use regularly,” Catherine continues. “We also enjoy walking through the nearby woods and countryside. We even have a ‘pick your own’ farm close by, where I have picked my own plums to make jams and chutneys.
“The location is fantastic – there is so much around us. We are only 10 minutes from Norwich city centre and the new Park and Ride is at the bottom of the road, so if we want to go to town we just hop on the bus! The Norfolk Broads are only 10 minutes in the other direction and the coast is a 20-minute drive. Also, once the new Northern Distribution road is complete, we will be even better connected than we are now.”
The couple, who run their own window and conservatory business, have fallen in love with the unique features the ‘Wilton’ has to offer.
“We love the layout of our new home – it ticks every box for us,” adds Catherine. “We adore our master bedroom with the walk-in wardrobe, however my favourite room is the kitchen/dining area. We are hoping to add one of our orangery’s to extend the dining area into the garden.”
Catherine adds: “Our experience with Taylor Wimpey has been superb. Tania in the Sales Centre was incredibly helpful. She always got back to us straight away and nothing was too much trouble for her. She even helped us with selecting our options for the house by offering us design ideas when we were unsure of what to go for!”
