Having lived in Darlington for 14 years, homeowners Jenny and Nathan decided to test the market, sell their home and buy their dream home at Howards Green. Now living in their brand-new home, we met up with them to find out about their experience with Thirteen Homes, talk all things specification, Christmas plans and dream dinner guests!
Hi Jenny and Nathan! Shall we start by you telling us a little bit about yourselves?
Of course, hi, we are Jenny and Nathan and have lived together in Darlington for 14 years. I work in the fire service control room and Nathan is a secondary school teacher. We have two cats, we love to travel, and going to see live music.
Why did you decide now was the time to move?
We lived in the area and had seen Howard’s Green being built. We were considering home improvements in our old house but thought we would test the market instead. We put our house up for sale and it sold within a couple of days, so we headed straight to Howards Green and reserved our plot immediately!
What was it that attracted you to Howards Green in particular?
We were attracted by the specification offered in the homes and the style of the houses at Howard’s Green. It is also an ideal location for commuting to work and close by to the local shops and amenities.
Speaking of specification, what are your thoughts on what we offer?
The specification is excellent! It really is a case of having everything you need from the day you move in - lovely in-built appliances, security, and Hive heating, to name a few. Even now when we tell people what was included, they are surprised with what comes as standard.
So, you are now living in a beautiful Yale home, but did you consider any of the other house types before you purchased your plot?
Yes, we had looked at the Pewter - another lovely house type, but we loved our plot, and the bay window was a real selling point!
Would you say the bay window is your favorite part about your new home?
The bay window, 100%; we can’t wait to put our Christmas tree up in there and invite family round to celebrate our first Christmas in our new home.
Which room do you think you will decorate first?
The master bedroom, but there’s no hurry as we love the interior as it is, for now.
Going back to when you purchased your home, can you tell us a little bit about your experience with us?
Fay in the marketing suite is a credit to Thirteen Homes. She has gone above and beyond to make the process as stress free as it can be. Nothing was too much trouble as we proceeded through the purchase.
Would you recommend Thirteen Homes to others?
Yes! We have already recommended Thirteen Homes to family and friends as we know the friendly service they would receive and the high specification on all house types.
Now for a bit of fun, if you could invite anyone to a dinner party in your new home, who would it be?
For starters we would invite David Attenborough for his interesting stories. For our main course we would invite the Hairy Bikers so they could cook for us! For dessert we would invite The Killers to entertain us for the rest of the night.
