A family of three have found their perfect set-up in Watton, having moved over 120 miles north of their previous home in Kent in search of more space and a slower pace of life

Sinead and Dave, along with Sinead’s 16-year-old daughter Eve and their German Shepherd, Enzo, upgraded their two bed terraced property into a spacious four bedroom home Barratt Homes’ Wayland Fields development, having realised the affordability of homes in the countryside location.

When looking for their new home, Sinead and her family considered an extensive number of second-hand properties across the country, but then realised very quickly that they wanted to opt for a new build home instead.

Having previously owned three brand new properties in the past, Sinead was familiar with the benefits already, but was blown away by the amount of space their new property gave them.

She said: “When we first moved into our home, we thought the amount of space it had to offer was incredible. It was the most euphoric feeling that the house we had just moved into was ours.

“We were previously living in a two bedroom terraced home, which was compact and we had definitely outgrown it. We found that, in Norfolk, you can get larger properties for better value while also living a slower pace of life.

“We searched for a new build home in Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire but, in the end, it was the Wayland Fields development that really stood out to us.”

Working from home as a Project Manager at a telecommunications company, Sinead was able to keep her job despite making the move to East Anglia.

She explained how one of her favourite aspects of the property is the fourth bedroom, which she is currently using as a home office.

“When working from home previously, I would work in my sitting room, but now I feel like I’m in an exclusive office! It enables me to really close off and focus on work which is hugely beneficial to me.”

The Adlington style home that Sinead and her family have moved into is a detached, south-facing property which is both modern and versatile in nature.

It consists of three double bedrooms, an additional single bedroom, a large downstairs area and a generously sized garden.

Sinead added: “Our house is south-facing and has a much bigger garden than our previous home. There’s a lot of privacy, and it really ticks all the boxes for us.

“The angle that the house is at is pretty amazing and it means that during the daytime, the property is bright, sunny and warm.”

Sinead’s daughter, Eve, is also delighted with her new home. Sinead explains how her favourite feature of the property is her bedroom which is bright, airy and fits a double bed.

Eve now attends the local secondary school, Wayland Academy, and is enjoying living in the same community as some of her friends from school.

Sinead added: “Wayland Fields has a lovely community feel to it and there are other kids living on the development, which is nice for my daughter.

“The development is central to everything – one hour to the beach, a short drive from Norwich and not too far from Great Yarmouth – so it’s perfectly positioned to be honest.”
