First time buyers find perfect home thanks to local newspaper
First time buyers Gemma Harmycz and Esther Caesar-Gordon have found their perfect home in Walters Ash, a rural village four miles from High Wycombe. Now the proud owners of a two bedroom semidetached home, they are looking forward to settling into their new life and starting a family.
Esther, a contract manager for a private property maintenance company and Gemma, a Housing Officer, had managed to save for a deposit by moving in with family members. Esther says: “We had been previously renting but we moved in with family to save for a deposit. We were looking for homes when a friend of ours pointed us towards an article in the local newspaper.”
The home, which they bought from Annington, is situated in a peaceful setting with an enclosed rear garden. The scenic nature of the area was of great appeal to them, as Gemma notes: “Walters Ash is a very calm peaceful area that makes you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside but at the same time only 15 minutes from town. We are within walking distance to convenience stores and local pubs, access to large woodlands and parks. The local people are friendly and welcoming with a real sense of community spirit.”
The generous size of the property was a major selling point, as Esther explains: “Compared to most two bedroom houses we viewed it was the most spacious. In both bedrooms you can comfortably fit a double bed as well as bedroom furniture. The kitchen is a great size; we have designed the layout so we can also use it as a dining area and the lounge is equally spacious. The garden is perfect as it does not require too much maintenance and boasts a beautiful view across the countryside.”
The couple are now well positioned for their respective journeys to work, with it taking them both 30 minutes to travel to Aylesbury and Beaconsfield, and with a happy work/life balance, they are now looking forward to enjoying their new home for many years to come. Gemma concludes: “The plan is to raise a family here and only move if we out-grow the house. We have already mentioned to friends looking to buy to keep an eye out for future homes for sale like ours!”« Back to testimonials page
