Haddington family make their first step onto the property ladder

Family of four standing in new home
Although Stuart Rollo had never particularly seen himself as a homeowner, when he and his partner Lisa Thomson needed more space for their growing family, they decided that a move to a new home at our Letham Mains development near Haddington ticked all the right boxes.

Stuart and Lisa knew the area well, so they were aware of the choice of developers at Letham Mains and the options of homes that were available to them. When they considered their immediate and future needs with two young girls, they loved the layout of our Boswell housetype and reserved it off-plan.

Stuart said: “We rented a house in Gifford for quite some time and I couldn’t really see why I would want to move. But as the girls are growing up, we just felt that we needed more space and I thought if I don’t buy a house now, I’ll never do it.

“We set our budget, and from the choice of homes that we looked at Taylor Wimpey’s Boswell was just perfect for us. It’s got a great layout for us, as well as Taylor Wimpey’s two-year warranty and the NHBC ten year guarantee so moving here just made sense to us.”

“We looked at quite a few local show homes just to make sure in our own mind that we were making the right decision, and then we just went for it. We’re so happy with our house, the move and the whole process that I really don’t mind showing other people the layout of my house – after all they might become neighbours.”
