The couple have moved to St Mary’s Garden Village to be closer to family and friends in the Midlands and have found they’ve quickly become part of the new community being shaped by Edenstone Homes and Bluebell Homes.
“We’d moved from Birmingham to St Cleer in Cornwall but hadn’t really settled and in December 2019 put our house on the market and secured a buyer, but they pulled out just before Christmas. Then COVID struck and we had no enquiries during lockdown,” Sarah explained.
Once restrictions lifted retired nurse Sarah, 59, and bus driver Tony, 58, visited Edenstone Homes at St Mary’s Garden Village in Ross on Wye and their house was put back on the market with another agent.
“Our house sold within two weeks of being put on the market but the sale fell through two weeks before contracts were due to be signed,” Sarah recalled.
“It put a spanner in the works, but we had the support of Edenstone and with a quick turnaround we put it back on the market and two weeks later it sold again. It was all handled brilliantly.”
While the couple had a wish list – garden, garage and drive, without the need for a lot of work before they moved in, they hadn’t really considered new build homes but had been drawn to St Mary’s Garden Village.
