After six years of living in rented accommodation and saving to make their dream of home ownership a reality, Miriam Divwalla and her family found their dream home at our Oakleigh Grove development. The family moved into their three bedroom Peisley home in March and are now happily settled into their new surroundings in Whetstone.
Miriam, a stay at home mum, began looking for a new build home for her and her three children Luka, 8, Hayden, 7 and Gabriel, 3, when she became fed up with the ongoing maintenance of the property they were renting in East Finchley. She says: “Just before we moved, everything seemed to break so we were ready to move into a home that would require much less upkeep and where everything was brand new. We visited Oakleigh Grove and I fell in love with the development straight away.”
Having previously lived on a busy main road, it was important for the family to find a home that was more peaceful. The cul-de-sac location of their new house was a key selling point for Miriam who wanted a place where her sons could play safely outdoors. She adds: “The boys can finally play outside where I can see them without me having to worry about cars driving by all the time. They haven’t had the chance to learn to ride a bike before now so I’m excited that they’ll soon be able to do that.”
The family’s new home is also ideally located to cater for their day to day needs as Whetstone town centre, which offers a choice of shops, restaurants and other everyday amenities, is just a short walk away. There is also a good range of schools nearby and the boys are still in the catchment area of the school they were attending before their move.
The layout of their Peisley home suits the needs of a family with three young children thanks to a spacious layout with plenty of storage and a large garden. Miriam was pleased with the customer service she received from the team at Taylor Wimpey. “Our Sales Executive Liliana was really friendly and provided regular updates throughout the whole buying process,” she says. “Even though I have three young children who are very playful, Liliana made us feel extremely welcome and took the time to help us to find the home that was perfectly suited to our needs. We all love it here and couldn’t be happier in our new house.”
