Paola Pestell - Mirage

Date: Tuesday 15 May 2012

“When I walked into the show flat at Mirage in Welwyn Garden City my hair literally tingled at the back of my neck – I knew I could live there.

“I must have been Taylor Wimpey’s quickest customer! When I saw my apartment on the plan I said I’d take it and it was done in the space of ten minutes.

“I love my new home. There are eight windows, four on each side, in the lounge so there’s lots of natural light. The same applies in the bedroom too. The kitchen is fabulous – I cook lots and it’s an absolute joy. And it’s lovely looking out at all the trees and the turf. There’s plenty of room for me and it’s so easy to keep clean.

“I’ve been so well looked after by the whole sales team at Mirage – I can’t fault them. They’ve done everything possible to make me feel welcome. It’s all been very easy.

“Welwyn Garden City seems quite delightful. I’m enjoying the beautiful blue hyacinths leading up to Sainsbury’s. I can walk to the Howard Centre in six minutes, and only a little longer coming back with shopping, and there’s a taxi service if I need it. I’ve joined a gym and it’s only two stops away on the bus. There’s everything I need.”
