"My boyfriend, Ross, and I had been looking to buy our first home for months and months, but couldn’t find anything we liked, or that was in our price range.
"When my mum said she was going to look for a house for herself at Kingshill Grange in High Wycombe, I thought I would go along, with the intention of helping her, not looking for myself.
"But when we were speaking to the Sales Advisor, as an aside, I asked if there were any two-bedroom properties available – and he gave me details of the ‘Speen’ coach house.
"I took a brochure home and showed it to Ross, who immediately said ‘I want it, I want it!’
"Although we thought it was a little out of our price range, the very next day the Sales Advisor called me, and offered us a fantastic deal which put it within our limits. Just a few weeks later we’d reserved our new home.
"When we found out we’d won a trip to New York after entering a special promotional prize draw when we made our reservation, we couldn’t believe it – and it meant we could look forward to an amazing holiday as well as moving into our first home together.”
"We are from the local area, and so we know what a fantastic, accessible spot Kingshill Grange is in. We have managed to get a brand new home that needs no work doing to it, and Taylor Wimpey even paid our legal fees and included white goods in the deal. It’s something we never imagined we could find – and we haven’t had to compromise on anything.”
