Finding a new build bungalow in the UK can be challenging as they only make up around 1% of new homes built as most developments comprise houses and apartments.
But just at the right time for Mr & Mrs McNamara however, Rydon Homes were creating a number of highly specified new bungalows at Laytonfields in Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex and they settled on one of these spacious single storey properties to make their happy new home.
“Having previously owned a listed building in a nearby town we were ready to move to something much lower maintenance, but importantly it had to give us similar levels of space. We had looked at several existing bungalow properties, but found them too small for what we needed.
Turning to Google, the only development with bungalows was Rydon Homes’ Laytonfields scheme at Hurstpierpoint. Visiting the site these homes were just as described in the online brochure material. We chose a plot that had largely been built already and it was good to be able to visualise how this house would become our home in the large open rooms that were a must on our wish list.
There are good character features of the property, like the vaulted ceiling in the living area and the double garage has been so handy for extra storage.
We have met the neighbours on our close who are all very friendly. We have lots of ideas for the future about what we would like to do with the garden including planting some new trees and enjoying the patio areas.
Rydon Homes was not a company we had come across before and they have been very good with customer service and after care, showing us how to use the new heating system and the appliances in the kitchen. With very few new bungalows on the market we are pleased this development has given us the home we wanted. We have had so many compliments on the house, and people saying they wish they could find a bungalow just like it.”
