“We really weren't intending on moving - we were going to do up our existing house. But my wife and sister-in-law went up to look around the Kirkwood show home at Ury Estate, and that’s when I received a text from my wife saying “OMG I want to move now!” And that’s when it all began.
“Walking into the show home, we fell in love with the big family area, the kitchen, the dining room, the wonderful living room and the big back garden. It’s everything you’d want.
“In hindsight, doing up our house was going to cost a lot, as it was approaching 18 years old. We would have had to invest a lot to get what we wanted from it, so buying new became a very attractive option.”
