Swindon couple find perfect fit in high-spec, contemporary home

North Swindon locals Steven Wiseman and his partner Teresa Lopez have recently purchased their first home together, a three bedroom semi-detached home at Evolve at Tadpole Garden Village.


The couple are born and bred Swindon locals, and were previously living in separate two bedroom homes in Northern Swindon before deciding to sell both properties, purchasing their first home together at Tadpole Garden Village.


Despite living in his previous house for 11 years, Steve found the area very built up with lots of three storey houses and no private parking, which prompted him to move. He said: “Tadpole Garden Village is a great solution as it is a low-density development, and each house has its own driveway and parking. The space is really appealing, there’s an openness to the whole village, with lots of green areas and two lakes at the end of the road, while still having access to shops and cafes nearby.”


The couple were able to part exchange one of their previous properties. Steve said: “The whole part exchange process went really smoothly, we had no problems at all. It was also good to experience the sales side of Crest Nicholson, given I work for the company. I have worked for other property developers and the standard of Crest Nicholson far exceeds my other experiences.”


Steve was working on the Evolve phase as an Assistant Site Manager with Crest Nicholson when they decided to move. Steve said that beyond working on the development, it was the high-specification and new, contemporary open-living layout that really sold him on it.


Despite working for Crest Nicholson, Steve and Teresa made a point to look at other developers’ offerings in the area before buying. However, it became clear during their search that Crest’s homes had the highest quality specification.


Steve said: “As this was our first home together, ensuring that our house had high quality materials, fittings and fixtures was really important to us, which is why we chose Crest Nicholson’s Tadpole Garden Village.”


The four bedroom show home at Evolve at Tadpole Garden Village is available to buy with all light fittings, flooring, curtains, blinds and landscaped garden included for £410,000. Steve is now working on the next phase, Stray Park at Tadpole Garden Village where three and four bedroom homes are selling from £305,000.
