Anthony and Charlotte Clubley from Gloucestershire were so undecided about whether to extend their current home or move to a new one they had even considered asking for help from Channel 4’s ‘Love It or List It’ programme with Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer!
Charlotte explains: “We have three children and an extended family and needed more space but Anthony was adamant he was not moving unless we found the perfect property! We had been looking at houses for two and a half years over lock down and also explored options to extend into the roof. We were so undecided we did consider asking Kirstie and Phil for help!”
But in summer 2022 they took the plunge and put the house on the market with a local agent and because of the amount of interest held an Open Day.
Charlotte continues: “We left them to it and went to look at five properties including the show home at Fallow Fields in Twigworth, close to where we were living. The location was perfect and would mean the children would not have to change schools but we thought it was out of our price range.
“It was our last visit of the day and a Newton house type plot had just come back to the market and we both absolutely loved it. We spent an anxious Sunday knowing it was the house we wanted and on the Monday, we had five offers for our house so we raced back to the sales centre and put our deposit down.
“It really did feel like all the stars had aligned and we got our perfect forever home.”
The Newton is a spacious four-bedroom house with a spacious open plan kitchen family/ dining/ area which spans the back of the property and a separate living room at the front and four bedrooms upstairs, including the master suite.
