A Blank Canvas Makes For The Perfect Family Home

Posted 10 March 2022 by Helen Christie

A Leicestershire family have moved to a new property at David Wilson Homes’ Wigston Meadows…

A family from Knighton in Leicestershire have secured a new property at David Wilson Homes’ Wigston Meadows development to escape years of renovations in their previous home. 

IT operations director, Manish Bhalla, 41, and his financial crime corporate auditor wife, Aarti, 35, recently moved to the community with their two children, Manas, 12, and Ayvaan, 7, from a 1930s semi-detached home.

Manish says: “We carried out multiple renovations on the property during our time living there. It was in a really good state in the end but we were ready for a new chapter in our lives and to embrace the simplicity of new build homes.”

The thought of not having to carry out renovations on a home to suit their lifestyle ticked all the boxes for the Bhalla family as they could take advantage of everything being ready for them come moving day.

The location was also a contributing factor in the family deciding to move just a stone’s throw away from their Knighton home.

“We chose Wigston Meadows as we wanted to stay close to the city for all the amenities, but equally we wanted to be a little further out”, says Manish, “Here at Wigston Meadows we have the best of both worlds with the city and the beautiful countryside on either side.”

Not only did Manish and his family take advantage of the fantastic location, but the excellent customer service they received from the developer was hugely helpful.

After researching homes in close proximity, the family were impressed with David Wilson Homes’ development layout at Wigston Meadows and the high standard of the new build homes.

Manish says: “Our experience with David Wilson Homes has been great! The sales and site team, as well as all other parties involved, have been instrumental during the whole process for us. We would definitely recommend David Wilson Homes to family and friends.”

The family upsized to a five-bedroom Henley style property and have found that the layout suits their needs perfectly. With two en-suites and a family bathroom to ensure privacy for everyone, in addition to an outstanding family room and kitchen, they have made the most of the extra room and the property’s flexibility.

Once spring arrives, the family plans to add plants to their generous new garden and to introduce a few wildlife friendly features to support the garden’s inhabitants.

Wigston Meadows is located just a short drive away from Leicester city centre and provides both excellent road links and picturesque county living to suit all manner of lifestyles. There is also a choice of Ofsted 'Outstanding' rated schools close by including Meadow Community Primary School and Beauchamp College.

Rachael Harrison, sales director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, says: “We are delighted to hear that the Bhalla family are settling in well and we’re thrilled at how pleased they are with their new home.

“We pride ourselves on bringing high-quality properties to our Wigston Meadows development and we hope to welcome more homeowners here alongside Manish and Aarti.”
