“We chose Taylor Wimpey because we have complete confidence in the company and we know the house will be finished to a fab standard.
“The layout of the ‘Shelford’ really appeals to us. The open-plan kitchen and dining room is lovely and the size of the house is very comfortable too.
“We did look at other housetypes but the ‘Shelford’ has a study and that will certainly come in handy for us as we are both teachers – we spend a lot of time preparing and planning lessons so having that quiet space is important.
“We like the idea of having a new build because it’s a fresh, clean slate that we can put our own stamp on. We wanted something that we wouldn’t have to do much work to or spend a lot of money on after we’d moved in.
“The location of the house is so perfect – Danielle’s parents live in Pontypridd and my parents live in Pontyclun. Dan y Bryn Gaer is slap bang in the middle of where we both grew up. There are lots of local shops nearby as well, and the schools in the area are fantastic – everything is on our doorstep!
“The development is handy for the newly-built bypass so it’s really easy for Danielle to get onto the A470 to work and for me to get onto the A4119 for the M4 – the site could not have come up in a more perfectly situated position.
“We’ve gone Options crazy! When we saw the brochure we were like wow! There are just endless choices – it’s really exciting. We spent ages talking about everything from the thickness of the carpet and what sort of attic lights we should install to the type of kitchen we wanted and whether we should add a hosepipe outside!
“The whole process with Taylor Wimpey has been fantastic. We always feel like we know exactly what is going on and we are thoroughly pleased with the service we’ve received so far."
