Buyers find perfect home at Taylor Wimpey’s Moorcroft development

When Lou and John Mitchell visited Taylor Wimpey’s Moorcroft development it was love at first sight.

They were so impressed with the Ashton showhome that they signed up to buy one of their own there and then.

Now Lou, 34, and John, 54, have moved into the contemporary four bedroom property and say it’s absolutely ‘perfect’.

As Lou, a lecturer, explains: “We love Spennymoor and were keen to find somewhere in the area so when we came to Moorcroft it seemed ideal.

“When we walked into the Ashton that was it – we loved the design, space and feel so we reserved that day.
“Now we’re here we absolutely love it. We’ve got a huge kitchen and a brilliant corner plot, it’s everything we ever wanted.”

The Ashton is an ideal larger home, offering stylish, flexible space at an affordable price.

As well as four good-sized bedrooms, the property has a dining room and its own single garage, and with prices starting at £199,995 represents amazing value.

Being based in picturesque Spennymoor means Moorcroft residents can enjoy all the benefits of living in this bustling, well-established local community.

As well as offering amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants, the area is also within reach of the famous Whitworth Hall Country Park, incorporating the UK's most northerly vine yard, as well as a deer park and lake.

Transport links are excellent too with the historic city centres of Durham and Bishop Auckland only a short drive away and the A1 close by.

As Joan Peart, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North East, says: “The Moorcroft development is in a superb location and has a wide range of realistically priced family homes.

“To give buyers a helping hand, Taylor Wimpey has designed the part exchange scheme to make it even easier to secure a new build home, as we become your cash buyer.”
