Forever Home In Chesterfield For Golden Couple

A couple have celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary by moving into their forever home at William Davis Homes’ Skylarks development…

A couple who’ve been married for 50 years, have celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary by moving into a brand new forever home.

Bryn and Linda Jones signed on the dotted line to complete the purchase of their William Davis home on the exact date of their anniversary in March this year.

A few weeks later they moved into their beautiful four-bedroom Soar at Skylarks, Chesterfield, and are settling in well. The couple, who originally met at a local youth club, decided to downsize but still have plenty of space to entertain their four grandchildren.

Linda says: “I felt at home as soon as we moved in. We chose the corner plot off-plan and it’s everything we hoped for, we love it. Moving into such a lovely new home has been a wonderful way to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary.”

Bryn admitted it was a wrench moving from their previous house in Chesterfield, which he had built himself. The couple had lived there for 36 years.

“There was a sentimental feeling about leaving our previous home,” says the retired construction site manager. “We’d put a lot of love into it to make it a family home. But we felt the time was right to downsize to a new house which doesn’t need such a lot of maintenance.”

Having worked in the construction industry, Bryn spotted the high-quality craftsmanship which is part of every William Davis home. Bryn says: “It’s also lovely and quiet here. The homes at Skylarks are perfectly laid-out. The garden is private and we’re not overlooked.”

Linda, who worked in management training for the NHS, was impressed with the £4,000 soft furnishings package which was included. She says: “I love the open-plan kitchen and dining area and it was brilliant to choose the curtains and blinds to match the kitchen cupboards.”

All William Davis properties come with high-spec interior finishes featuring top brand names such as Smeg, Roca and Porcelanosa. Homes also have the Hive Smart Heating System opening the doorway to smart home technology.

The couple are full of praise for the sales and site teams at Skylarks. Linda adds: “The sales consultant, Stephanie, was really helpful and made sure everything was ready for us to sign on the dotted line on our anniversary date. From sales, to site workers and customer service, nothing has been too much trouble. We can see why William Davis have been awarded the industry’s five-star status for customer satisfaction for eight years running.”

They are now looking forward to enjoying many years in their new home, where they can welcome their three-year-old grandson and three grand-daughters, including non-identical twins.

As for the secret to a happy marriage, Linda says the answer is straightforward: “It’s really quite simple - ensure that your wife is always right. That way, there are never any arguments!”
