“Purdis Grange has been built in a way which has been very conscious of the local environment and countryside by incorporating many of the site’s original landscape features. I’ve got about 12 mature trees in my garden alone, including a beautiful cedar.
“The individually-designed properties also reflect the heritage of this part of East Anglia by using local designs and architectural features.
“As well as the countryside, there are plenty of amenities close by. We’re just a mile from John Lewis, which is handy, and for those that play golf, there’s a club next door.
“I’ve never had a new build before and I’ve been impressed with the whole adventure. The design of the house really suits me and I like the way it flows from room to room.
“The garden is a good size, without being too big as to be unmanageable, and Taylor Wimpey has taken great care to ensure the house is well insulated and energy efficient with all the latest features. There’s no way it’s going to get cold inside this winter!
“Using Part Exchange went very smoothly with no problems whatsoever. I didn’t have to worry about making sure the sale of my old home and purchase of the new one were in sync as I could carrying on living in Gidea Park until my new place at Purdis Grange was completed.
“I’ve previously owned a 350-year-old thatched barn which was like having a deep well where I threw money, but with a new build there are no repairs or DIY to worry about and you have guarantees from Taylor Wimpey and the NHBC.
“The Taylor Wimpey sales and site staff have sorted any little things that needed doing straight away. They’ve been brilliant.”
