Brimsmore proving an ideal lifestyle choice for retirees
Wyatt Homes’ elegant new properties in the distinctive Brimsmore ‘village’ development are proving a popular lifestyle choice for downsizers looking for a new home in their retirement. The very latest properties in the second phase of this quality Yeovil development offer an exciting range of two storey homes with spacious accommodation appealing to rightsizers looking to sell a much larger home and shed the responsibility that brings.
Sales and Marketing Director for Wyatt Homes, Annie Huddleston comments;”We have a wonderful selection of new properties which will suit the growing number of retirees looking to move into Brimsmore. The latest two storey houses allow them to easily downsize without compromising on space or lifestyle.”
“The range of ages and lifestyles of the residents who are now settling into the first phase of the development, from young couples, to families with growing children, as well as those entering retirement, is creating a real village atmosphere across Brimsmore,” continues Annie Huddleston. “There are always people around, everyone is so friendly and they really look after each other - just as they would in a traditional community. It is also great to see the retirees forming new relationships, which as you get older can be difficult, especially if you are on your own,” she says.
Downsizers moving into these new homes will also enjoy the benefit of huge savings in their utility bills, additional warmth and low in maintenance. All the Brimsmore properties have low energy fittings and lighting appliances, plus highly efficient boilers and heating systems with weather compensation and underfloor heating in the larger houses.
Less than a year ago, retirees Sheena and Alan Edgerton-Smith moved to Brimsmore and are thrilled with their new home; they plan to spend the rest of their days at this beautiful location in Somerset.
Sheena Edgerton-Smith comments; “We lived in the family home for almost 32 years, but once the children had grown up, fled the nest and had their own children, we were left with a big, empty house and were keen to move. We really wanted a three-bed detached rather than another big house. We went to The Summer Open Day at Brimsmore and liked the idea of a stylish town house. We were shown some three-bedroom detached houses and one in particular really appealed - we fell in love with it immediately.
“All the properties are so individual at Brimsmore – we really like the different facades, the different bricks and the different styles. The whole development is unique. When I look out of my window at the houses around us, none of them are the same and all have their own individual character.
“Right from day one, it has been wonderful and we feel very settled. We really, really like the area and the finish around the development is superb. We also love Somerset and have been enjoying exploring and getting out and about. We travel to Bristol and Exeter for the big shops and days out and the local countryside is superb. We love all the little market towns. Taunton is a delightful place and there are so many beautiful villages around– plus many National Trust properties, which is a real bonus,” she says.
“Brimsmore has just the right offering for retirees,” says Annie. “It is ideally located for access into Yeovil town and all of its amenities, with regular bus services from the development for those without a car and good rail links to Taunton and Exeter. The proposed plans for Brimsmore will be to create a real neighbourhood around a village square, with its own facilities such as a doctors’ surgery, and care home, making this the perfect nesting place.”
Other amenities are likely to include a supermarket and selection of retail outlets; a coffee shop and restaurant/bar. The development will also incorporate attractive open spaces, with 30 acres of new woodland planting and a natural wildlife pond.
The two storey homes at Brimsmore will be in a mixture of styles, sizes and tenures and are both semi-detached and detached properties with either three, four or five bedrooms, situated in attractive and interesting street scenes.
