Kings Wood Gate

Perfect new home in a picturesque location as Alan and Clare settle in at King’s Wood Gate

The chance to own a first home together at one of the region’s most sought-after locations, was too good to resist when Alan and Clare Sonn visited David Wilson HomesKing’s Wood Gate in Monmouth.

The couple, who describe themselves as ‘second time arounders’, had been living in Ross-on-Wye and both had their own homes – but were keen to consolidate their assets and move to popular Monmouth.

“We love Monmouth because of its close-knit community feel,” said Alan (56). “So we started to look in the area for a home that we could both call ‘ours’. I had managed to sell my property, but Clare’s was a little more tricky because it was a quirky design and layout.

“It was great chatting to the team at King’s Wood Gate because they told us about David Wilson Homes’ part exchange scheme.”

Hassle free move with part exchange

Part exchange removes all the uncertainty associated with a move. David Wilson Homes is a guaranteed cash buyer – so there is no chain, no last minute price haggling and no hidden costs. And people can stay in their existing property until their new home is ready.

“It made everything so much easier,” added Clare (54). “And it meant we were able to buy the home we really had our hearts set on – the four bedroom Cornell design.”

The Cornell house type offers plenty of light and space. The airy lounge has a bay window, and the well-arranged kitchen benefits from a breakfast area and adjoining utility room. The dining room features a glazed bay that lets natural light stream in. Upstairs, there is a master bedroom with an en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom, and a family bathroom.

“We looked at various styles of homes but we loved the Cornell the most for a number of reasons,” said Alan. “The kitchen/diner is large, open, and very family-friendly – with a very large french doors opening out onto the garden. The lounge is large and light, and the entire house is incredibly spacious.


Moving made easy

“It was an easy decision for us to make. From the location and the development itself, to the beautiful Cornell home, we were very taken with King’s Wood Gate. And the surroundings here are wonderful.”

Offering a range of stylish three, four and five bedroom homes, King’s Wood Gate is set just outside the historic market of Monmouth. The location offers beautiful scenic views of the surrounding countryside, a vibrant town centre and prestigious schools nearby.


“Clare and I work away a lot and, although we enjoy a wonderful conservation setting here, we’re within very easy reach of commuting links to both the M4 and M5. We’re very happy here – and would recommend David Wilson Homes to anyone seeking a stylish new home and an easy and straightforward buying process.”
