The Richards family were so excited about purchasing a brand new three-storey house that they wanted to be at the front of the queue for the launch of Taylor Wimpey’s Kings Acre in Clipstone.

Vivienne, Ian and their two grown-up children, Justin and Amy, counted down the days till the development’s official opening, when they made sure they were the first visitors and the first to reserve their perfect plot.

Now the Richards’ are enjoying life in their stylish new home – after becoming the first homebuyers to move to Kings Acre!

“With two adult children living at home, our old semi-detached property had become too small of us, so we were ecstatic to find out that Taylor Wimpey was building three-storey houses nearby at Kings Acre – in fact, we couldn’t wait for it to open,” says Vivienne.

“We even popped along to the development a day before its launch to see if we could secure our dream house there. It was a relief when we finally managed to purchase the stunning townhouse that we had set our hearts on.

“And by taking advantage of Taylor Wimpey’s Part Exchange incentive, we were able to guarantee ourselves a stress-free move. The Sales Executive was really helpful and the whole process went smoothly – it only took about six weeks to go from first visiting the development to securing our new home.”

Part Exchange customers receive an agreed price for their existing property, based on the average of independent valuations, leaving them free to sit back and relax until their new place is ready to move into.

“Our wait for Kings Acre to open was definitely worth it because our new home is really living up to all of our expectations,” says Vivienne.

“Having three storeys means there is plenty of space for all of us. Our children each have a generously sized bedroom to spend time in, while Ian and I have the en-suite master bedroom on the top floor, which is perfect for when we want some peace and quiet.

“We moved in to our new home as soon as we could – we were the first customers to visit the development, the first to reserve a property and the first to move in!”

Two-bedroom coach house-style apartments are currently available at Kings Acre from as little as £99,995, three-bedroom houses from just £126,995, four-bedroom properties from only £214,995 and five-bedroom detached homes from £229,995.

The development enjoys a convenient location in the heart of Sherwood Forest close to a host of everyday amenities in the popular village of Clipstone, including local shops, pubs, a health centre, a pharmacy, a post office and takeaway outlets.
