Christie and her partner, James, were searching for their dream home and were seeking more space for their growing family, as well as the room for them both to work from home. Having never previously considered a new build home, they fell in love with the 5 bedroom Almond at our stunning Meon Vale development in Long Marston, Stratford-upon-Avon.
Space to suit
Welcoming individuals and families of all sizes, we know that searching for the right layout of a property is important, with some seeking a more open-plan style of living and others preferring the privacy and cosiness of defined rooms.
For Christie and James, the open-plan layout of the Almond was a key factor in their decision making and it’s proven to be a hit since they moved in.
Christie opened up about her dream home, saying:
“We love the kitchen-diner with room for a seating area, as it means we have somewhere to socialise whilst cooking dinner. By having this as an open-plan space we’re able to chat, play with our son and entertain friends and family all at the same time. It’s also lovely opening the bi-fold doors and looking out over the garden.”
On top of this, having enough space for both Christie and James to have dedicated areas to work from was essential, whilst keeping bedrooms for friends and family to be able to use.
Location Location Location
Of course, having the right space for your family’s needs is crucial – but even if you find a property that’s perfect for you, if it isn’t in the right location, then it’s probably not going to work. Fortunately, our developments across the UK are specially selected and planned to maximise any transport links by both road and rail.
Across each of our developments, we pride ourselves on the community which we’re able to build due to their location and the integration amongst the existing area’s natural beauty and wildlife.
Christie says: “All three of us enjoy the green space around the Meon Vale development and we often go for walks around the park or woods before stopping for coffee and cake at The Pavilion Café. Also, in terms of convenience, having the local shop around the corner has been a godsend!”
Peace of Mind
Buying your dream new build home is a staggered process from the excitement of reserving your plot through different build stages, to the unforgettable moment you pick up your keys.
Throughout this process, having open and honest lines of communication with our customers via our sales experts is essential in making sure that everyone is happy, informed and confident with the homebuying journey.
Christie says: “Our journey with St. Modwen Homes was a really positive experience, they were very welcoming and accommodating when we came back to view the house throughout the build stage and helped progress our purchase and sale for a smooth exchange on the Almond. We’ve recommended them to both friends and family!”
