Next in the series, we meet Kelly who shares her home with her partner, daughter and family cat in Silkin Green, Telford. She tells us about how she fell in love with Simple Life homes and why she had to have one.
Kelly found Simple Life, after a friend of hers moved onto the development. When they looked around their property, it was love at first sight as she was impressed by the modern finish and quality design. “What struck me was as a brand-new build, it was a blank canvas to make our own and much more spacious than anything that we’ve rented before.”
The open plan layout of the home really suits Kelly and her family’s lifestyle and their home gives them the space to enjoy quality time without feeling on top of each other.“We spend most of our time in the family kitchen as it’s so big and airy. I can be cooking while my daughter is doing her homework or crafting – there’s usually glitter everywhere. We stick the radio on and there’s plenty of dancing around. We love the Velux windows especially, and we have double doors that open out to the garden which feels like an extra room – everything is so big. The front room is nice and cosy and now that the winter months are coming too, we have been spending a bit more time there but the kitchen is our favourite place to be.”
It’s not only the house that appeals to Kelly but the location as well, “The area we are in is fab! We are right by the park, off the main road and the transport links are really good – we can walk into town and everything is on our doorstep.” With friends just over the road and more moving onto the development, Kelly’s enjoying the neighbourhood feel but values having her own space including a private garden and her own parking space.
Kelly also shares with us how at ease she feels knowing she can rely on the efficiency of a professional landlord; “One of the main perks for me is the peace of mind we have. We don’t have to worry if there’s any issues in the house, maintenance are straight there and just get it done, get it fixed, whereas with a normal private landlord it could take weeks.
“It’s a really satisfying feeling knowing our landlord is looking after our needs, we don’t have to worry about if they are going to sell or them taking months to get something fixed – they care about the property. Having all new appliances is brilliant – if anything breaks we know we don’t need to fork out thousands of pounds to fix it. ”
