Family camp out to snap up their new home at Westfield Gardens

Date: Wednesday 11 December 2019


After looking for a new home for about two years, securing a new home at Westfield Gardens in Maidenhill was so important to Winnee and Gordon Len and their two daughters that they joined a queue of other eager customers to camp out when the first few homes were released for sale.

Winnee explains:  “We had heard lots about the development before it launched, and it ticked so many boxes for us in terms of a great location and the new Maidenhill Primary School that I said to my husband that we really had to check it out. 

“We popped along to the sales office to check out the development and the local area,  and were really surprised to see there were two cars with families who had already camped out for two nights, so I thought that if we were to get the house that we wanted then we would have to camp out as well.  We joined the queue and stayed overnight – it was very exciting. There really was a lovely atmosphere and fortunately, everyone wanted a different house, so there was no competition, but it was a really good experience and just added to our overall excitement of buying the house that we really wanted.”

Using Part Exchange really suited the couple as Winnee adds: “We used Taylor Wimpey’s Part Exchange scheme, and it just worked brilliantly for us.  The team at Taylor Wimpey were fantastic – from arranging estate agents to putting us in touch with one of their preferred solicitors.
