A perfect Nottinghamshire property for Ben
Taylor Wimpey’s Rufford Grange development of properties for sale in Nottinghamshire provided farmer Ben Bakewell with a home on the doorstep of the countryside.
As a farmer, 27-year-old Ben Bakewell is certainly familiar with countryside views – so it’s no surprise that he’s found his ideal home at Taylor Wimpey’s Rufford Grange development of new homes for sale in Rainworth.
The first-time buyer paid a visit to the development of new homes for sale in Nottinghamshire after deciding to move out of his parents’ farmhouse in Mansfield, he was instantly struck by its wonderful outlook over beautiful rural countryside. What’s more, Ben was so impressed with the three-bedroom ‘Fermain’ townhouse at the development of Nottinghamshire property that he put down a deposit to secure one straight away.
“I was living in my mum and dad’s farmhouse near Mansfield, but it really felt like the right time to move into a place of my own,” says Ben.
“When I first saw the ‘Fermain’, it blew me away. I love the way it has been laid out across three floors, with the en-suite master bedroom tucked away at the top of the house – and there’s plenty of room downstairs too.
“I really appreciate being able look out across the countryside from my new home, the views are really something.”
For Ben, buying a brand new home from Taylor Wimpey was a big attraction because he knew he wouldn’t have to worry about expensive repairs and DIY, with the two-year housebuilder guarantee and ten-year warranty from the National House-Building Council giving him extra peace of mind.
“Buying a new build home was important to me, because I didn’t want any of the hassle or expensive problems associated with older properties arising in the future or have to do any work to it,” he says.
Ben is also delighted with the location of Rufford Grange, perfectly located for both work and leisure.
“The location is fantastic,” says Ben. “I’ve always lived in this area, so it was important that my friends and family are nearby. Also, it’s just five minutes from where I work, which is important because I’m a farmer who regularly puts in 80-hour weeks.
“I moved in a couple of months ago, it went really smoothly and there were no problems. Now I’m just enjoying life in my new home.”
