When Paul and Jacqui Nolan discovered The Romans at Augusta Park, Taylor Wimpey’s development of new homes in Andover, they were delighted to have hit upon a community that fulfilled all their house-hunting requirements.
Boasting the best of both town and country, this popular new community of homes for sale in Hampshire is surrounded by picturesque countryside, and yet minutes from a local amenities and convenient commuter routes.
Jacqui (51), an executive assistant in the financial services sector, says: “I’m a country girl at heart and I like to live away from the town, so Taylor Wimpey’s new properties for sale in Andover were ideal. Augusta Park is surrounded by lovely farmland but you only have to go five minutes down the road to find absolutely everything you need.”
Jacqui and Paul were keen to upsize from their small three-bedroom home near High Wycombe, but felt put off by the high prices of larger properties for sale in Buckinghamshire.
By finding Taylor Wimpey’s houses for sale in Andover, they were able to secure a spacious four-bedroom detached house with an expansive, south-facing garden for less than the sum they received for their previous property.
The couple also took advantage of Taylor Wimpey’s Options range, which lets customers choose interior finishing touches to match their individual taste and requirements, including carpets, flooring, tiles, kitchen units, worktops and appliances – all of which are expertly fitted before they are handed the keys.
“We moved in the middle of January when the weather was freezing cold, so the last thing we wanted was to have to put up with bare floors while we waited for a carpet to be fitted,” says Jacqui.
“Taylor Wimpey made sure everything was finished well before we moved, which was a real bonus for us. I have to say, we are genuinely delighted with our new home and it’s absolutely ideal for our needs.”
All new omes at The Romans at Augusta Park are completed to a high standard specification, including double glazing, central heating and fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
And to make choosing one of their new properties in Hampshire even more appealing, Taylor Wimpey offers a range of time and money-saving incentives, including help with finding a buyer for those with a property to sell and assistance with estate agents’ fees, legal costs and moving house.
New facilities are being created alongside the new homes at Augusta Park, and a primary school opened at the development in 2010.
Currently, a range of shops, including a supermarket, are within easy reach of the development, and a good selection of secondary and further education can be found in Andover.
Andover town centre is a five-minute drive from The Romans at Augusta Park, and home to the Chantry Centre for shopping, a cinema and a theatre, a leisure centre with pool and classes and activities for adults and children, and a choice of gyms.
Commuters will appreciate Andover railway station is also a five-minute drive from the development and provides regular services to Salisbury, Basingstoke and London Waterloo, while the M3 and M4 can be reached in 25 minutes.
