Family find their dream home in time for new addition

Movemaker scheme

A Warwickshire couple found their dream family, with the Movemaker scheme, home at David Wilson Homes’ Long Itchington development, Spinney Fields.

Alex and Marek Grzegorcyzk (both 38) decided they needed more space for their new arrival and have now moved into their new five bedroom home with their son Cass (9), baby daughter Remi and their beagle Max.

Alex, said:

“It was important to us that we had an easy home buying journey as I was due to give birth to Remi the week before we were expecting to move. One of the reasons we chose to purchase a David Wilson home was the Movemaker scheme and convenient purchase process. The Sales Advisers, Gabriella and Suzy were really helpful in keeping our purchase moving forward within the tight timeframe.”

It might not be all ‘black and white’ when it comes to decorating the home but monochrome is still one of the most coveted looks in the world of interior design says Cormar Carpets.

According to Cormar Carpets it holds a timeless and classic appeal and although it’s a simple palette, the strong black and white theme adds impact and drama to any room in the home.

For those who prefer a slightly softer look, introduce soft dark browns or pure greys to the mix. This works particularly well in bedrooms and living spaces where a subtler design scheme may be required.Cormar Carpets

Moving into your own home is an exciting time. You finally have your own space and the chance to put your stamp on a property.

And if you’re lucky enough to also have your own garden, it’s not just the interior where you can start to make your mark.

Whatever sized outdoor area you have, decking is a great option.

It’s low maintenance, looks great and is perfect for entertaining on.

But there is one drawback – it can become very slippery when wet.

This can create a real hazard, especially if you have an entrance, such as a backdoor, which opens directly onto your decking area.

Housebuilder gives buyers the chance to buy off-plan in Wiltshire

People seeking a new home in Wiltshire can reap the benefits of buying off-plan, according to local housebuilder David Wilson Homes.

The five-star housebuilder is creating new homes at its Mill Brook development in Westbury, and is currently selling them off-plan - with three and four bedroom homes among early availability. 

“We know more and more buyers are choosing bricks and mortar as a sound financial investment,” said sales director Louise Ware. 

“There has never been a better time to buy off-plan. Even by the time they move in, those reserving early in the build process will find the value of their home may have increased - saving them money and ensuring their investment is working for them very early on.”
