Upsizers find the perfect home for a growing family
Danny and Elaine Dawson have recently moved into a home at Oakleigh Green, Annington’s development of newly refurbished homes in Whetstone, with their two children.
The Dawson’s were previously living in a two bedroom flat in Islington which they still own, but once they visited Oakleigh Green they decided it would make the perfect move for them. Danny explains: “The homes looked really nice and we thought that the development would be an exciting place to live. The area is very family friendly with lots of good schools surrounding us which is excellent for the kids.”
With two young children it was time for the Dawson’s to upsize to a larger property, and the spacious sizes of the homes at Oakleigh Green were particularly appealing. Elaine, an Admin Manager, says: “The size of the home was a real draw for us, we really needed four bedrooms. As an added bonus, the homes are newly renovated and we have our own parking space. When we looked round we could see that the development is of a high standard and in a great location.”
Annington has enhanced the surrounding street scene by introducing new landscaped spaces, paths and paving, greatly improving the original setting, a factor that the Dawson’s were impressed with. Danny, a Managing Director, comments: “The outdoor space at the development is excellent and the area is far less urban than our flat in Islington. We can see ourselves living here for a long time, definitely until the kids leave home.”
Each property at Oakleigh Green has undergone significant refurbishment with new kitchens with integrated appliances, new bathrooms, new front doors and new flooring throughout, and each home has an allocated parking space. With a fantastic location granting easy access into central London, the homes are likely to appeal to first time buyers, professionals, families and downsizers. Oakleigh Green is located nearby to Totteridge and Whetstone underground station, where the Northern Line reaches central London within an hour. It is also well positioned for the M25 motorway.
