New-build comes good with a new baby

 

Twenty-five year olds Georgia Sheldrick and Ryan Simmons are celebrating the arrival of their first baby Olivia, just three months old, with the purchase of a three-bedroomed ‘Bath’ home at Troy Homes’ Laburnum Gardens in Talbot Street, Hitchin.

 

They were initially unconvinced about newly built properties because they felt that they were more likely to find the character and mature surroundings that they wanted in a second hand home, but when they visited Laburnum Gardens they realised that a more intimate development with pleasant layout actually had character built in, especially when located in a established residential part of the town. Troy Homes’ designs also incorporate features such as high ceiling heights (nearly eight feet) that are exactly the characteristics that home buyers value about traditional properties.

 

The qualities of Hitchin as a market town have been a huge draw for Georgia and Ryan. Says Georgia: “We love Hitchin and are delighted to be able to move within the town. As a market town it has a buzz and sense of occasion and we are happy to call it our home. Ryan commutes to London from Hitchin station and can walk or cycle to the station very easily and if we want to get out in the fresh air with the buggy, we have open fields nearby.

 

“We used to be a two car family but living in Hitchin has meant that we could sell one of the cars, it just wasn’t needed; although we do have two parking spaces on our driveway outside our new house. We enjoy walking in to town at the weekends for breakfast and if we are out in the evenings, there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops. We also have our eye on nearby Samuel Lucas JMI school for Olivia one day!

 

The ‘Bath’ design home chosen by Georgia and Ryan at Laburnum Gardens offers a wide and impressive façade designed around a central front door, allowing the rooms either side to stretch the full depth of the house. It creates a good impression of space, with nothing feeling ‘pinched’.

 

Georgia says: “Our home attracted us straightaway. With its front door in the middle it means there is good sized central hallway with buggy space. This opens up into a great kitchen/diner on one side and a large lounge on the other so that we’ll be able to entertain. The French windows lead out into our garden, so Olivia will be able to spend plenty of time outside. There is plenty of space for us upstairs as well and we look forward to having our ensuite bathroom all to ourselves.”

 

Sales at Laburnum Gardens have been impressive, and the development is now over 55 per cent sold. The reservations come before the new show home is built and are a sure indication of the premium quality of the homes on offer and the desirability of the development in the future. Troy Homes’ quality of operation has been independently recognised by the NHBC with a commendation award for health and safety at Laburnum Gardens
