Tony and Pat Sparks were able to tick every box on their wish list as they moved into their new four bedroom, three storey Ullswater home, at Taylor Wimpey North East’s The Park development in Dryburn, Durham.
They were also the first couple to choose a property on the site and were delighted with the size and layout of the Ullswater and were particularly pleased that it has an integral garage. The Ullswater is a spacious, four bedroom, family home with generous living accommodation and although only Tony and Pat, who are both retired, will actually be living at the property, they were keen to buy a home which offered plenty of space for visits from their growing family, who all live locally.
Tony explained; “We were very impressed with the generous size of the downstairs kitchen and dining area, there is plenty of room for us to entertain visiting family and friends, which is important to us as we love having guests, especially our two year old granddaughter.”
Pat and Tony are delighted with their master bedroom, with en-suite shower room, situated on the second floor. The Sparks plan to use the other two bedrooms on the top floor as guest rooms for their family and friends.
To reduce the stress involved with house moving, the Sparks took advantage of Taylor Wimpey’s Easymover scheme, where the company organised the sale of their previous home in Sherburn Village, Durham. Tony explained; “Everything went smoothly, in fact the house was sold within two days, which is quicker than we could have hoped for!”.
As well as a helping with a quick sale the Easymover scheme saved the Sparks the costs of advertising, agent’s fees and removals as well as ensuring they were able to accept the best offer for their home.
