Family make it the treble with Taylor Wimpey in Dunfermline

Date: Wednesday 10 September 2014




Taylor Wimpey at Fordell Lea in Dunfermline had the perfect home for Maryann Lawrence and her three children – Cameron (13); Lewis (11) and Isla (5) when they were looking for a new family home earlier this year.  In fact this is the third home Maryann has bought from Taylor Wimpey following previous purchases at two other developments in Fife – making the family experts in buying new homes.  

The four bedroom detached Maxwell ticked all the right boxes for the family, however their journey to this new home took a bit longer than planned as Maryann explains:  “I had my heart set on moving to Fordell Lea – I loved the house and the development.  However, it was a really worrying time for me, because I had a set of complex legal issues to settle in order to sell my old house which took a long time to resolve.

“And then when I’d managed to eventually get my old house onto the market, unfortunately one set of buyers pulled out so I was stuck with a home that I didn’t want.  The team at Taylor Wimpey was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process which took months to sort out.  They effectively kept my options open to moving to my dream home at Fordell Lea, so when I was lucky enough to finally sell my old home in Masterton, I called to check if my home was available and I was really thrilled when the sales executive Isla told me they’d been keeping it for me, and that it was still there for me if I wanted it!  The team really took the time to understand my personal situation, and they’ve really helped to make our moving to a new home an enjoyable and stress-free process.

“Since we moved in a few months ago life’s been great – it’s truly a new start for us as a family and we’re all enjoying living at Fordell Lea.  The development is really handy for the park and there’s lots of children around to play with my three children and so they’re just so much happier.”
Buying a new home also offers Maryann other benefits as she explains:  “As a single mum, I wanted to move to a new home because it’s a safe move for me where I don’t have any maintenance to worry about and I feel really secure.  Plus I knew that I could just move my furniture in and just get on with life – which is busy with three children and my full-time job as a telecommunications engineer.”

It’s exciting when we see developments actually come to life and have such a positive effect on families as Karen Armstrong, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland adds:  “I’m delighted that Maryann and her family have settled into life at Fordell Lea and that we managed to secure her dream home.  It is a fantastic development that appeals to families, and it boasts a great mix of local facilities and great schools nearby too.”

Inspired by nearby Fordell Castle, Fordell Lea is one of two current developments in Fife.  Situated at Middlebank Rise in Dunfermline, this impressive development offers a mix of 135 contemporary family homes from Taylor Wimpey’s Scotland range.

The development currently offers a choice of two and three bedroom terraced and semi detached homes, as well as three and four bedroom detached family homes ensuring there’s a home here to suit a wide range of customers.  Prices for the final few remaining homes start from £132,000 for the two bedroom Andrew.
