“We fell in love with this particular plot straight away. The garden, the layout and the property’s position within the development were all ideal for us.

“It’s a very quirky home. It’s built on a slope so the front garden rolls down to the house, while the back garden is split on to three levels, so it’s like having three different garden rooms.

“We’re keen gardeners and in the bottom garden area we’ve put up a wooden pergola and laid down some nice edging stones.

“There’s also a large patio area where we’ve put plenty of different spiky plants from around the world, and we’ve also got lots of plants acquired from our previous house so we’re enjoying finding new homes for them.

“The other garden area is a bit more wild and has a big old oak tree in it that has been preserved, which adds a bit of ambience. It’s a beautiful spot and we spend plenty of time out there. It almost looks like a stately home garden – albeit a mini one!

“For a new house the rooms are very generous. You can fit a double bed into all four bedrooms and no space has been wasted in the layout, it’s all been cleverly designed.

“We have two grandchildren so there’s plenty of room for them to stay over and for us to entertain family and friends. We have quite a lot of visitors so the size of the house was a big attraction to us when we decided to buy it.

“We’re very happy here. We’re still within walking distance of Haywards Heath railway station, a major transport hub, and that was important to us as it means we can easily visit our daughter in Kew, our son and his family in Seaford, and we can also go into London.

“We found the Taylor Wimpey staff very accommodating during and after our move, especially those working on site. One of our friends who visits us a lot is unfortunately in a wheelchair, and the Taylor Wimpey guys levelled out a step in our patio area for him, so it’s been great to receive that personal touch.”
