ONE visit to Taylor Wimpey’s Caldecott Manor development in Rugby was all it took to convince Barry Cox and Kevin Farrell that they had found their ideal home.

As busy working men, the couple were keen to find a place which would be ready to live in from the moment they first stepped through the front door, as well as meeting the needs of Kevin’s two children.

At Caldecott Manor, Barry and Kevin didn’t take long to find their perfect family-size house – a four-bedroom ‘Chatsworth’ detached home with a classic design and a flowing layout which could be tailored to their own tastes.

“We decided to visit Taylor Wimpey’s Caldecott Manor after seeing it advertised and, from the moment we arrived, we knew it was the perfect place for us,” said Barry, 43, an accountant.

“We had been planning on moving for a few years and at first we were thinking about going for an older-style house, but you know exactly what you’re getting with a new build property – they are so much easier to manage and maintain and you know there won’t be any nasty surprises waiting for you.

“We told the sales executive the sort of place we were looking for and we were taken to see the ‘Chatsworth’ detached house, and it blew us away! We loved the downstairs layout, with its generously-sized rooms and its open-plan spaces, plus there are four well-proportioned bedrooms upstairs which are ideal for me and Kevin, as well as his children.”

Barry and Kevin’s new home has a large kitchen/dining room and an expansive lounge opening through french doors to the private rear garden, plus an en suite master bedroom, three further bedrooms, a main bathroom and a handy guest cloakroom, while outside it has a tandem garage.

And because they purchased their home off-plan, the couple were able to pick exactly how they wanted its interior to look.

“We’re both working professionals who don’t have the time to spend doing DIY, so buying off-plan allowed us to pick all the finishing touches and accessories we wanted from Taylor Wimpey’s exceptional range of interior Options,” said Barry.

“This means our new home will be ready for us to start enjoying from the moment we move in.”

Thanks to the part exchange scheme, Barry and Kevin, were able to avoid the uncertainties of a property chain after receiving an agreed price for their existing property from the leading housebuilder, based on the average of independent valuations.

“Part Exchange has been really helpful and made our lives much easier.”
