A Hertfordshire couple are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their first child after finding their dream family home in Buntingford.
Glenn and Joanne Gardiner were previously living in a two-bedroom apartment in Stanstead Abbotts, but decided they needed a larger home in which to start a family.
After searching across Hertfordshire for their ideal home, they reserved a three-bedroom semi-detached house at The Village, a development being built off London Road in Buntingford by Fairview New Homes.
And there was further joy for the couple when they found out soon after moving in that Joanne was pregnant with their first child. The new addition to their family is due in September.
Glenn, 35, the head golf professional at the Hanbury Manor Golf Club in Ware, and Joanne, 29, a researcher for Tesco,say The Village’s family-friendly environment was a major factor in them deciding to put down roots there.
Joanne said: “Once we began planning a family we very quickly realised that it wouldn’t be practical to stay on the top floor of a block of apartments.
“We started looking around a couple of second-hand homes but neither of us wanted the additional stress of redecorating, so we decided to look at new build homes.
“Refreshingly, we found the buying process with Fairview to be straightforward. We loved the three-bedroom Primrose showhome so we chose the same housetype for our new home.
“We were looking for a new home so we could raise a family in it, so after finding out that I was pregnant, it feels like everything has just fallen into place.”
Having settled in at The Village, the Gardiners are enjoying life in Buntingford.
Joanne said: “A friend of Glenn’s had just moved to Buntingford and recommended that we had a look at homes there. We wanted a home in a quiet, family-friendly community, and The Village ticked every box for us.
“We’re both so excited to be starting a family in our new home.”
Fairview is building a range of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes at The Village, where a new phase of homes has recently been released for sale.
