Our new home is perfect for our growing family

May 28, 2020In Testimonials5 Minutes

May 2020: After the arrival of their youngest son Joe, Alistair and Emma decided it was time to look at moving to a larger home to raise their two sons. The family had lived in the north Oxfordshire village of Duns Tew for over ten years, and were really settled with many friends, and their son Jack, aged nine, attended a nearby primary school.

But with two growing boys they really wanted a larger garden for them to run around and play football in and a fourth bedroom was on the wish list. The couple viewed a number of second hand and new build properties locally and were fortunate when first time buyers made an offer on their home.

Alistair explains, “We had looked at a number of properties and decided we liked one in Steeple Aston. Our offer was accepted and with an offer on our existing property we started the ball rolling to move home. Then one day the sellers changed their mind and we lost the property. With Brexit and the uncertainty in the housing market it made us slightly nervous that we could run the risk of losing our buyers if we didn’t find an alternative property quickly.

“Emma and I looked into the options and had become aware of a small new development in Tackley by Deanfield Homes. Although it was at the top of our budget, a new build property was really appealing to us as it is totally brand new, no-one else has lived in it before and there is no uncertainty with a chain and someone pulling out.

“We visited Deanfield Grove one weekend and immediately fell in love with it. The house has a lovely landscaped garden to the front and back and is a great size for the boys to enjoy and the house offered four generously sized bedrooms. We also really liked the feel of the village with its community shop and children’s playground nearby.”

Alistair and Emma purchased a four bedroom Fyfield at Deanfield Grove.

Alistair continues, “We were fortunate to move in before the Covid-19 lockdown so we have been able to really enjoy our new home. The garden has made such a difference for us all and there is a lovely patio area to sit out on and enjoy the view of the hills in the distance. There is also an extra playroom for the boys to have fun and chill out in.

“We were so impressed with the customer service we received from Deanfield Homes and Savills. Before lockdown, Sarah from Savills took us on a little tour of the development and introduced us to a few of our neighbours. We are really looking forward to being able to get to know everyone and for the boys to make new friends and play out together. It already feels like home here.”
