Spacious open-plan home for Kathryn’s new chapter at De Cheney Gardens

A spacious new home, set within beautiful surroundings, prompted Kathryn Gundle to put down roots at David Wilson Homes’ popular De Cheney Gardens development in Beckington.

Having recently divorced, Kathryn (45), was already renting in the village but seeking somewhere to call her own nearby.

“I was looking for a property that was both impressive and affordable – a tricky challenge,” said Kathryn. “It was also important for me to have social space within my new home, so I was looking for an open-plan kitchen and family room. I certainly found it in the Abberton house design at De Cheney Gardens.”

This spacious three bedroom home has a large open-plan kitchen with family and dining area, with french doors leading to the garden – creating an ideal space for entertaining. There is also a utility room, living room and snug. Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, the master with en suite, and a study which could also be used as a fourth bedroom. The family bathroom completes the first floor.

“I loved the style of this house. It was in-keeping with the village but a new-build,” added Kathryn. “The price was very reasonable for the area – and of course the lovely open-plan family room was perfect for me. The living space was just right, with little touches like the porch, garage fronts and plants that made it all feel special.

“And the surroundings here made the choice to move to De Cheney Gardens a complete no-brainer.

“We have a Starbucks nearby – what else could you need? We also have a farm shop, coffee shops, a garage and petrol station, and all other basic amenities. It’s a beautiful village. I love it.”
