“We really couldn’t believe our luck when we stumbled across Taylor Wimpey’s The Barns at Oakham Manor in Telford, and since then everything has gone better than we could ever have expected.
"My husband Roy and I were helped to sell our old home through Taylor Wimpey’s Easymover scheme, but we never expected that a buyer would be found in the very first week! Everything just slotted into place, it’s been a totally stress-free move, and now we have the most incredible property.
"My favourite room in our new home has to be the living room. It has beautiful barn oak flooring, a wonderful view of the courtyard and, like all the other rooms, it’s very light thanks to its big windows.
"The ceilings are higher than those you would find in an average house and everybody who has visits comments on how spacious our home feels. We certainly feel the same – and we moved from a big four-bedroom house!
“The setting of the development is idyllic, and such care has been taken by Taylor Wimpey to make The Barns at Oakham Manor so special.
"We have a lovely cottage garden out at the front and it looks so beautiful. The French doors in our lounge open out to a lovely private garden to the rear, which we’ll enjoy transforming into something special.
“And, while our home is only a matter of months old, it looks traditional from the outside – Taylor Wimpey used reclaimed bricks from the former farmhouse, and matched them with similar-looking ones to great effect.
"The road which serves the homes has also been block paved, rather than being the usual modern road surface, which adds to the charm of the place.
