“Andrew and I decided to visit The Avenue, a new homes development in Kirkby-in-Ashfield and when we got there it just felt right.
“We went for the ‘Heather’ housetype without even seeing inside, because the development was at such an early stage. It sounds funny but I think it chose us – and it chose right!
“For us it was a chance to downsize, while staying in an area we both love and which is convenient for work. We took advantage of Taylor Wimpey’s easymover programme to help sell our bungalow, and also used their free House2Home removals service. It’s true what they say – you can relax while Taylor Wimpey takes away the hassle and does the hard work for you.
“With our new home fully carpeted and decorated in neutral colours, all we had to do was move in. We love the south-facing living room overlooking the garden - it’s such a light and airy room and our favourite place to be. I’ve never lived in a newly built property before, but I would certainly recommend it.
“The community is growing around us as more people choose The Avenue as a place to call home, and whereas we used to live in an area where most people were retired, here it’s lovely to have neighbours of all ages.”
