Family find dream home at Shopwyke Lakes

Chris Pratt and Chelsea Kane secured their new family home at Taylor Wimpey’s Shopwyke Lakes development. The couple decided it was time to make the move after their family expanded with the arrival of daughter, Luna.

With a one year old running around, the couple were looking for a home that didn’t require much work and this led them to Shopwyke Lakes and the three-bedroom Easedale home. 

Commenting on their experience with Taylor Wimpey, Chris said: “Our first choice location was always Chichester so when we saw the development, it just seemed the ideal opportunity for us. 

"The Easedale house type ticked all our boxes, too. We wanted at least a three bedroom double fronted house with a garage and a south facing garden. Luckily we got that and so much more. We love that we aren’t attached to any other gardens, that our home has character and that eventually we will be right near the development’s park space."

Chris explains: “Having lived in a first floor flat with a baby and no garden throughout the lockdown, we are able to fully appreciate everything the house has to offer."

The couple were also able to make use of Taylor Wimpey’s easymover scheme. Chelsea commented: “We used Taylor Wimpey’s easymover scheme to help sell our flat and the team guided us through the processes for our sale and purchase,  which meant we could sit back and wait.”

With easymover, the Taylor Wimpey sales team helps to guide purchasers through buying and selling, keeping in close contact with the estate agent to value the property and use their marketing and negotiating skills to sell the house quickly. Once a purchaser comes forward, the team keeps in touch with all buyers to  progress through to completion day. 

Roz Wells, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, added: “We’re delighted to hear that Chris and Chelsea are pleased with their brand new home and the space it has to offer them and their daughter.  

“Shopwyke Lakes is a brilliant development to be a part of, with its location on the edge of Chichester making it convenient for city life. The development also has excellent amenities nearby and for those residents who love the outdoors, there is access to the beautiful coast and countryside.

“With more residents set to move in soon, we look forward to watching the community grow here at Shopwyke Lakes.”
