"I’d spent years helping buyers find their ideal home. So when it was time for me to move I took my own advice – and snapped up a luxury property just down the road from work.
"I’ve just moved in to my new home at the Orchard View development in Linthorpe – just a few seconds away from my office at nearby Roseberry Court. Since moving in this February with my husband Paul, we couldn’t be happier with the property and surrounding views.
"We were keen to downsize after our daughter, Jennifer, left for university, and we fell in love with the home as soon as we saw it.
"We love new-build homes because they’re so easy to clean and maintain and the development is spectacular.
"Everything we want is close by; the town centre, shops and even the bowling club are all just a short walk away and I’m so close to work I can cycle there in seconds."
Anne and Paul, Orchard View residents
