Victoria Bird (38) and wife Elaina Bird (41) chose to move to David Wilson Homes’ brand new Lavendon Fields development to purchase their first home after renting a property in London.

The couple, who also lived in Sydney for 10 years, are now settling into their new four bedroom Layton style home with children Jackson (2) and Juno (6 months).

The family made use of the governments Help to Buy scheme to help them buy their dream home.

Victoria, an Online Business Manager, said: “Elaina has been working from home since the pandemic started, and we soon realised that having your own office space at home was necessary. Alongside this, we had been planning to move out of London as Elaina’s office was moving to Milton Keynes, so when we discovered the Lavendon Fields development, we knew it was perfect.

“We were renting for four years in London, so this is our first home and it feels great. We were initially attracted to the area, the countryside is a big contrast to our old place, everything feels calmer and it is silent at night. Both Lavendon and Olney have a great community feel. With two young children, having a nursery and a primary so close by was a big positive.

“The Layton feels so spacious, and we love how modern and open plan everything feels. With two young children, having this extra space is amazing. We have already opened the French doors in the kitchen so the children can wander in and out of the garden. We are looking forward to having family and friends over once the pandemic is over!

“Despite Coronavirus, we had a really smooth moving process. The sales team were really helpful throughout. Everyone we have met at the development so far is really friendly and we’re excited to be a part of this growing community.”

Lavendon Fields, located on Soames Close, is ideal for family living with a range of four bedroom homes available and 44% of the development consisting of public open space.

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “Having the first residents move in marks a significant milestone in the progress of the development and we are thrilled to welcome the Bird family and celebrate what is sure to become a fantastic place to live.

“As a company that prides itself on top quality homes as well as excellent customer service, it is fantastic to hear the positive moving experience the family had with our sales team.”

Situated in a sought-after village location, Lavendon Fields is gaining a huge amount of attention for its incredible location and its ability to meet all criteria for 2021’s latest home buying trends.

Nestled between neighbouring villages Olney and Cold Brayford, the development has a truly rural feel. However, it is perfectly located for access to Northampton, Milton Keynes and Bedford which are all less than 15 miles away.
