A downsizers dream…

December 16, 2018In Testimonials4 Minutes

Making the decision to downsize can often be quite difficult, especially if there is the thought of having to move to a different area to the one you have lived in for many years. However, this was not the case for James and Dorothy Postles who were fortunate to move to a new home in the same village they have been living in for 38 years.

James comments, “We moved to Ducklington 38 years ago to a 300 year old cottage which we loved and raised our daughter in. We were extremely settled and enjoyed having our two granddaughters to stay regularly but started to realise that the house was getting too much in terms of maintenance and the garden and orchard involved quite a lot of upkeep.

“Dorothy started to do some research and looking at homes in the area. We decided to put our home on the market and look at homes in Witney but didn’t really like the feel of them. Then we discovered that a small development was going to be built in the village by Deanfield Homes. We couldn’t believe it and were keen to find out more.

“We visited the development and really liked the fact that it was small with just 26 homes and they were a lovely size with generous gardens. In addition, buying a new home meant everything was brand new and modern and wouldn’t need very much maintenance. Fortunately, our home sold so we were able to reserve a four bedroom detached home, The Claydon.

“As we hadn’t moved for over 35 years, the thought of buying a new home did seem somewhat daunting, but Deanfield Homes were excellent, giving us such personal service and talked us through the whole process and kept us up to date throughout.”

Deanfield Meadow in the village of Ducklington, near Witney, Oxfordshire features fourteen homes for private sale and twelve affordable homes. The homes are now all reserved.

James continues, “The house is just perfect, and we particularly love the large master bedroom with dressing area and en-suite for us and also have plenty of room for our teenage granddaughters to come and stay.

“It has been wonderful as we have been able to keep the same lifestyle in the village and although we have only been here for a couple of months, it already feels like we have always been here. We are so settled.”

Deanfield Homes has just launched its latest development, Deanfield Grove in Tackley from plan with two reserved already. Situated in the heart of the much sought after Oxfordshire village, Deanfield Grove will feature just 13, two, three and four bedroom family homes. Tackley is set in lovely tranquil countryside, just eleven miles north of Oxford and within easy reach of main motorway routes. It also benefits from a mainline railway station with direct access to Oxford and Banbury with onward connections to London, Birmingham and beyond. Help to Buy is also available at Deanfield Grove. Guide price for the released plots are from £395,000 to £695,000.
