Couple delighted after taking first step onto the property ladder in Leighton Buzzard 

First time buyers Sian and Alfie have taken their first step onto the property ladder having purchased their very first home at our Hadley Grange development in Leighton Buzzard.

Feeling right at home

Previously living in a one bedroom rental in St Albans, Hertfordshire, the couple were seeking a bigger home with a higher specification and one that has good commuter transport links to London. 

Alfie said: “We chose to live at Hadley Grange as the location is just right for our commute, it’s just close enough to London without being ridiculously expensive. It’s a peaceful and quiet development and we liked that Taylor Wimpey talked us through the future of the immediate area, too.”


He continued: “As this was our first home we also knew we wanted  a new-build because of the high spec of the home, guarantee of quality and the ten-year warranty. We ended up choosing Taylor Wimpey because the size, quality and finish of the Midford house type was very high.” 

The Midford is a three-bedroom semi-detached home. 

Speaking about their new home, Sian added: “We love our new home as it has a separate lounge and kitchen, in addition to its own garage. Our favourite feature is - oddly to some - the hallway, after living in and  around London for so long, the idea of having a dedicated entrance from your living space feels really special. We have also added two new furry additions - a cat and a dog - to our family, something that wouldn't have been possible in rented accommodation in London.” 

Sian also looked back on the service from Taylor Wimpey during the buying process, saying: “The buying process was excellent,  which was important as it is probably the most money you’ll ever spend on a single purchase. 

“We hadn’t ever bought a house before and Taylor Wimpey made it very straightforward for us.”
