“We wanted to live somewhere that was commutable to London – plus we’d always fancied living by the sea.
“After about a year of looking, we stumbled upon Hailsham – and when we saw the type of family-sized home you could get for your money at The Grange, our minds were made up that we were moving.
“We spoke to Taylor Wimpey about Part Exchange and after finding out more about the incentive we knew it was just right for us.
“With Part Exchange we had a guaranteed buyer in Taylor Wimpey and we had a guaranteed house to go to. It offered total peace of mind for us, knowing we weren’t going to be gazumped by somebody else, or have someone pull out of a move at the last minute – and it took a matter of four or five weeks to go through!
“As soon as we moved in we realised how big the house actually is – our daughters love it and are so excited. They have the entire top floor to themselves, with a bedroom each and their own bathroom. They think they’re living in their own apartment!
“Downstairs is wonderful, with a large open-plan kitchen which leads through to a garden room, and we have a big lounge – there’s so much space for everyone, and for visitors.
“The garden is bigger than we thought we’d ever get and we have a wonderful view over green fields and a lake, which really was the icing on the cake for us.
“I get a seat on the train for my commute into London, and when I step off it after a day’s work, I instantly notice how much slower the pace of life is down here.
“Everybody seems more relaxed – it’s peaceful here, we’re surrounded by countryside and not far from the coast. It’s just what we wanted.”
