Paul Nowlin was the first person to move into Taylor Wimpey’s new Kenton Bank Mill, Newcastle upon Tyne development, settling into life in a four-bed Lindale home following its purchase in December 2019.
Proud homeowner, Paul, who is a company director, needed something which would suit his personality and would be perfect for his two children, aged six and nine. He settled on the Lindale house type at Kenton Bank Mill because of its position on the development and features such as a study and detached garage.
Priority to his wider family was a priority for Paul. Alongside this, he is a huge rugby fan and part of the appeal was the development’s proximity to Newcastle Falcons rugby stadium.
“It was a fairly easy decision to make and I chose the house because of its location, build quality and affordability. I looked at Kenton Bank Hall also but the Lindale home at Kenton Bank Mill was just perfect for what myself and the kids needed.
“I’m a massive Newcastle Falcons fan and the stadium is close by so this was definitely something I took into consideration. The development also offers plenty of space for my kids to play.
“Despite receiving the keys in December, I could not move in due to a family illness. The Taylor Wimpey team was understanding, and we spoke regularly regarding this. I cannot speak highly enough of them.”
Helping him through the process of moving home were sales executive, Alex Nixon and customer relations manager, Lyndsay Thrower, available at every step, from pre-moving to aftercare.
Sarah Northcott, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North East, said: “We’re thrilled to see our new community beginning to take shape and welcome Paul and other new residents to Kenton Bank Mill.
“Making house-buying easy for families is a priority for us, and we’re happy to have helped Paul find the perfect home. The feedback we’ve had in regard to the location of Kenton Bank Mill has been fantastic, with house hunters being particularly impressed with its close proximity to the Metro, A1 motorway and Newcastle City Centre.”
Taylor Wimpey North East has donated £1000 to the Kingston Park Play Area Fund at its recent Zumba-thon fundraising event.
We've contributed to help with the refurbishment of the Kingston Park play area, located near its Kenton Bank Mill development in Newcastle, which has been fallen victim to a spate of vandalism over recent months.
John Gardener, coordinator at Kingston Park Play Area Fund comments: “Spending time outdoors is crucial for young people and the wider community, which is why we’re thrilled to have received the support from Taylor Wimpey to further raise funds for the new and improved community area.
“It was great to see so many local residents join us at the Zumba-thon and, with the generous donation from Taylor Wimpey, we raised a fantastic £2000 during the event.
“We can’t thank Taylor Wimpey enough for the generous contribution towards the play area, it will go a long way towards reaching our goal of moving the play area to the new site for all to enjoy.”
Sarah Northcott, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North East, adds: “Here at Taylor Wimpey, we’re proud to support the causes close to the hearts of the communities in which we build, which is why we’re only too happy to have been part of the Zumba-thon fundraiser.
“We hope the new park will be ready for all to enjoy soon and we can’t wait to see local people, old and young, enjoying the improved area.”
