A Taylor Wimpey home secured in two months for newly-engaged Andrew and Ash
Andrew Bright and fiancée Ash Bullman were celebrating their engagement in the Mexican sun when they made the life-changing decision to buy their first property together. Thanks to Taylor Wimpey the couple were able to find their dream home quickly and just eight weeks later had moved into a four-bedroom Midford at Tharston Meadow in the village of Tharston, Norfolk.
The couple, who had been renting a property in South Lopham for over a year, had dreamed of finding their perfect ‘forever home’ to buy together. Just a day after getting engaged in Mexico in March 2018 they decided to take the plunge, and after visiting Tharston Meadow Andrew and Ash soon settled on a traditional detached home.
Andrew said: “In the end, our choice was simple. We wanted a fresh, ‘hassle-free’ house which we could put our own stamp on, but be happy with whilst we decide what that stamp is. We also wanted a spacious home where we have enough room for family and friends to visit. Ultimately that’s what Taylor Wimpey offered us.
“We chose a Midford housetype mainly because of the large kitchen-diner. We’re always entertaining so we needed that big social room and enough bedrooms for friends and family to stay with us. We have our own business so we’ve already turned one of our four bedrooms into an office. Our plot also has a large, south-facing garden, which is ideal for us.
“Being business owners, location was high-up on our list of priorities. We’ve got friends who already lived at Tharston Meadow so we knew it was in an idyllic village but with great local amenities close by. At Tharston Meadow we’re also just 15 minutes away from work and it’s only 20 minutes to Norwich.
"The buying process was so simple and easy. We reserved in March and moved to our lovely new home in May. We cannot thank Dawn and the Tharston Meadow sales team enough for their help and support. All we’ve ever wanted is to build a perfect life, so the perfect home had to come first. With Dawn’s help we had moved into our dream home within eight weeks of getting engaged.”
