“When my husband Stuart and I first started looking for a new home for our family, we struggled to find the right one. If I liked one, Stuart didn’t, or if he did, I didn’t – so we weren’t getting very far. Plus, we hadn’t found a buyer for our own home, so things weren’t moving very quickly.
“After hearing about Kingshill Grange, we decided to visit the development, thinking it would be just another place to discount from our search – but, how wrong we were!
“We took a tour of the ‘Lacey’ showhome and instantly fell in love with it. We just had to have it. There was only one ‘Lacey’ left for sale, and so we needed to be able to act quickly to secure it, but thought having our own home would prove to be a stumbling block.
“Fortunately we found that with Taylor Wimpey’s Part Exchange initiative, we could move quickly and easily, without all the heartache that goes with being at the mercy of a property chain.
“So we reserved the ‘Lacey’ there and then, which was lucky as 10 minutes later somebody else arrived planning to do the same thing – we’d just beaten them to it!
“Going from thinking we’d have to wait months and months to move, to finding and living in our dream home so quickly is quite something. Everything has gone so smoothly, we haven’t quite been able to believe our luck.
“The living space of our new home is beautiful. It’s light and airy and we love the open-plan aspect of the design – it’s clear Taylor Wimpey put a lot of thought into the layout. The finish is also immaculate, which makes a big difference.
“A big selling point for us was having a guest bedroom with its own en suite facilities, which means visitors have a real sense of luxury.
“I also love the split landing upstairs, with our en-suite bedroom and study on one side, and our children, Isobel and Max, having their own rooms on the other, together with the main bathroom and guest room.
“Plus, outside we have a big garden with enough room for Max to kick his football around and bomb around on his bike.”
