“The value for money you get at Taylor Wimpey’s Blenheim Grange development in Carbrooke is outstanding. I moved from a three-bedroom terraced house in Essex to a stunning new four-bedroom detached house here, and had money left over to spare.
"I love the house – it’s so spacious, light and airy. In fact, it’s just perfect! I’ve got a wonderful lounge with French doors that open through to the garden, a separate dining room and even a study.
“The sun always shines on my patio for the whole of the day and it’s wonderful to sit there and enjoy the peace and quiet. The only noise around here comes from the birds in the mature trees at the front of the development! I was told that it would take time for wildlife to visit my garden, as it’s so new, but I’ve already had some lovely wild birds here, including the odd robin.
"I just love the region surrounding Blenheim Grange. Wherever I travel, I find I am driving through some beautiful countryside, past open fields and under wide-open skies. Whenever I go back to Essex it seems so built up and claustrophobic there that it’s a relief to come home again.
“I have family an hour away on the coast, I love chugging along the Norfolk Broads in a boat and the ancient Wayland Wood is only a mile away. As for shopping, Norwich is great for a day out, but Watton has everything I need for week-to-week living, including Tesco and Co-op supermarkets and a branch of Boots.
“Everybody has been brilliant since I moved here – they are such friendly people around here. It also feels very safe in the area, even to walk around at night, which is something I wouldn’t dream of doing back in Essex.”
Elaine Moss, Blenheim Grange resident
