The allure of Buntingford proved impossible to resist for Sandra Sculley and her fiancé Richard Andrews.
The couple had long dreamt of relocating to the area after falling in love with the charming market town while visiting family.
And they found their ideal home at The Village, Fairview New Homes’ development off London Road.
Sandra, 53, and Richard, 61, previously lived in a 4-bedroom home in Rickmansworth – but when Sandra’s eldest daughter flew the nest last November they decided to make the move across Hertfordshire.
The couple had set their hearts on buying a new build home so they wouldn’t have to deal with the hassle of redecorating, and looked at several properties for sale in Buntingford.
And it was the design of the homes and community feel of The Village which made the development stand out from the rest.
Sandra said: “Right from the moment we first walked into the development, we have been so impressed with The Village.
“We were originally looking at 3-bedroom homes but spotted a lovely looking 4-bed in one of the cul-de-sacs and decided to snap it up quickly.
“Our new home has a beautiful kitchen/dining room which opens out onto the garden, which I’m looking forward to enjoying this summer.
“The service we have received from Fairview has been fantastic. They made what we expected to be a stressful process go very smoothly and their recommended mortgage broker was extremely helpful.”
So keen were the couple to relocate to Buntingford that Sandra was more than happy to double the length of her commute to Slough, where she works as a school business manager.
She said: “Whenever we came to visit Buntingford, we would always enjoy what the town has to offer and its quiet lifestyle. It just made perfect sense for us to move there.
“Everything is on our doorstep – the M25 is less than half-an-hour’s drive away and it’s still easy to get into Central London.”
Fairview is currently building its third phase of homes at The Village. A range of 3 and 4-bedroom homes are currently available, priced from £375,000.
