Family’s ideal homes lined up at Market Weighton development
A close-knit family has moved into a Market Weighton development to live side-by-side in a row of four homes.
Ellen and Dave and their relatives recently moved into Taylor Wimpey’s Foxley Meadows development.
Ellen, husband Dave and their children, Noah, 3, and Isaac, 11 months, made their move to Market Weighton earlier this year and have managed to secure homes during lockdown alongside close members of their family.
The families joining Ellen and Dave include Dave’s brother Drew (an NHS worker) and sister-in-law Rachel (a University Lecturer), who live to their right. To their left is Dave’s sister Bex who is an NHS frontline worker and her husband Matt, a retail manager.
Finally, the fourth family home consists of Dave’s mother Trish, father Colin and aunty Kate, who is an NHS worker.
Ellen said “We all lived within a mile of each other previously however when my son Isaac was born at the start of the pandemic and we couldn’t see each other, this led to us beginning to think about living closer together.
“One of us joked that we should buy houses on the same street and, once we realised it was actually a possibility, we just decided to go for it and we all put our houses up for sale!
“It was a logistical nightmare, as you can imagine, but we’re so thrilled to have been able to do this and to find four homes right next to each other was incredible.
“We now have family close by during the pandemic and we’d like to say a huge thank you to Carol the sales executive who kept us informed along the way and managed to ensure we had four, four-bedroom homes all together.”
Ross Clarkson, sales director of Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, said: “We’re over the moon that we could accommodate the families at our Foxley Meadows development and that they experienced a smooth move in, despite the challenges of the pandemic.
“We’re proud of the communities we have on our developments and think it’s fantastic that they’ve decided to make this move together, turning a negative into a positive over the past year.”
