The new purchaser of Plot 23 at Millfields, Bethersden, a three bedroom link-detached home, tells us how impressed they have been with their Rydon Homes buying journey from the initial contact through to moving in, an enjoyable and stress-free experience.
"I was looking to buy a home within Bethersden as I enjoy living in the village, having previously rented there. It has handy local facilities and excellent rail and motorway connections close by, making it an easy base from which to get around the county and beyond.
A friend had recommended the Rydon development, which at the time was at a very early stage of construction and I contacted them for more information.
I didn’t necessarily set out to buy a new build property. I wanted a home that was easy to look after and that I could make my mark on. It also had to be at the right price!
Rydon invited me to their head office to discuss the plans for the Millfields development. Stephanie, their sales & marketing manager, took me through the scheme and I was really impressed by the design and the level of attention to detail. I particularly liked how the style of the homes blended with the existing properties in Bethersden, which is quite a traditional rural Kent village.
This is my third home purchase, but my first time for a new build and buying off plan. I had lots of questions about the process and spent some time researching the pros and cons online, ensuring I was aware of any potential pitfalls. Stephanie at Rydon was also really helpful, responding to each of my queries quickly, which put my mind at rest and ensured I chose the home that best suited my needs.
Overall, their customer service has been superb and it has made me feel extra special to have the ‘personal touch’ Rydon provide. In particular, I have been able to specify and upgrade a number of design elements in the interior. I was invited for a tour of the Alno showroom to choose my new kitchen from their display kitchens, rather than from a brochure. It was a lovely experience and one that not all buyers would have.
Now I have moved in it feels like I’m staying in a fantastic holiday home, one I never need to check out from!
Aside from the beautiful kitchen my favourite elements are the ensuite shower and stone flooring in the hallway, which I chose. I really love the finish.
After I’ve settled in I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time in the garden and making it my own.
Thanks to this development I have the house of my dreams. I am pleased I purchased off plan, it has been the right decision and I would happily recommend Rydon to anyone looking for a new home.”
