New Home in Leegomery has All The Right Ingredients
The best move we could have made - that’s how Andy Overton describes the new home he’s bought in Leegomery with partner Aleks Psiurska.
The couple had been in search of extra space when they visited Abode Leegomery, where they found that the three-bedroom, Abode 138, had all the ingredients they were looking for in a new home.
Andy explains: “We had been living in a two-bedroom upper floor apartment with no outside space. We’d both accumulated lots of possessions and had no space to store everything.”
Aleks adds: “The flat was quite small and so we needed more space and somewhere that we would both be happy with.”
Their new home offers three floors of carefully planned accommodation – so all the space they need.
When they first visited the Abode show homes they had already reserved a property from another housebuilder and were comparing what else was on the market out of curiosity. But when that purchase fell through they went straight back to Abode by Redrow.
“It was the best move we could have made and if we hadn’t we would have regretted it for years,” Andy says.
“We didn’t want anything flamboyant or old fashioned so the fresh look of Abode with the brick finish and grey roof was perfect.
“The ground floor is open plan with a large kitchen area, including an island that separates it from the dining and family area. It really suits us as there’s easy access out to the garden and lots of natural light.”
Alex adds: “I love cooking so the most important part of the house for me is the kitchen, which is well equipped with integrated appliances.”
Abode properties enjoy ‘uncluttered’ but smart façades with a host of in vogue interior features including underfloor heating, fashionable wet rooms, plus banks of discreet storage units.
In their home Aleks and Andy benefit from having a separate lounge on the first floor, to complement the convivial ground floor space. The master bedroom with en-suite is also on the first floor, while the remaining two bedrooms and shower room are on the top floor.
The couple decided to buy new to avoid spending time and money on DIY.
“With a new build you have the reassurance of a 10 year warranty from the NHBC whereas with an older property you can have problems with maintenance and having to make improvements,” Andy explains.
Aleks adds: “There’s no one else’s touches only ours. We were able to walk in and put our character into the home rather than having to adapt from someone else’s choices.”
Current availability at Abode Leegomery includes two and three-bedroom homes priced from £144,995.
