Corsham newlyweds buy Redcliffe home for retirement!

Redcliffe Homes' beautiful Corsham development was the dream move for Cleeve and Heather Carter after they were married. "I moved in with Heather, who already lived in Corsham," said 66 year-old Cleeve, "but we needed a bigger place. The Redcliffe development was ideal."

Heather, 56, and Cleeve bought a three-bedroomed detached 'Sherston' home on the Redcliffe development. "It's a very attractive style of house and at a decent price," said Cleeve. "Inside, everything is finished to such a high specification and the rooms are all a lot bigger than those in most new homes. The added advantage for us is the large garden: my wife insisted we had a south-facing garden to enjoy so this is just perfect - although as I'm retired and she isn't yet, it'll be me enjoying it most to start with!"

Redcliffe have indeed managed to build an outstanding selection of homes to do justice to their beautiful setting, combining traditional style with contemporary elegance and energy efficiency. The homes are also spacious, with an inbuilt flexibility so they meet buyers' particular needs and requirements, whatever they may be.

Cleeve adds, "The buying process was all very straightforward and Redcliffe really helped us out along the way - they were brilliant. Once we were in our new home, there was the odd snagging issue as there always is with new homes but again, they dealt with everything courteously and quickly. The houses around us are starting to fill up now and I think it'll be a lovely estate."

There are a number of homes remaining on the Park Place development of 2,3,4 and 5 bedroom homes. They are in a charming rural setting a stone's throw from the beautiful historic market town of Corsham.

Corsham is a hidden gem, full of character. The market town is rich in history and historical buildings, including Corsham Court, an English country house in a park designed by Capability Brown, notable for its spectacular gardens and fine art collection. The town itself is busy, bustling and a pleasure to stroll around - see if you can spot the peacocks who tend to wander the High Street!

With an arts centre, wonderful independent shops and great places to eat and drink, it's a town that is easy to fall in love with. Looking more practically, the primary and secondary schools are excellent and very highly regarded, while the M4 is just five miles away, as is Chippenham railway station which has a direct connection to London and Reading.
