Olly Jones and Suzi Hastings, both 29 years old, had previously lived in Reigate when they decided to upsize to Crest Nicholson’s Westvale Park. The couple used to live in a two-bedroom flat but were looking for extra space and a garden, ideal for their pug, Jasper, to run around in.

Olly explains: “A friend knew we were looking to buy and they recommended the development to us. We were familiar with the area and frequently drove past it. I’d always dreamt of living in a townhouse and the first home I saw on the website, the ‘Darwin’ in which we currently live, was exactly what we were looking for.”

Olly continues: “We fell in love with the main bedroom, which alongside the en-suite bathroom, takes up the whole of the third-storey which is lovely and spacious. We are extremely excited to have a garden where we can entertain friends, play with Jasper, and host barbecues while we still have great weather. We just extended the patio and added sun loungers which are a great way to enjoy the lovely end of summer days.”

Olly adds: “We are both nurses and work at East Surrey Hospital, just a 10-minute drive from our home which is ideal for our commute. It is also near Reigate, where we used to live and know the area well. We can easily visit all of our favourite spots and hang out with friends. We benefit from excellent transport links, such as a bus service, and we are a stone’s throw away from Gatwick airport, suited for when we want to go further afield.”

Olly finishes: “We are blown away by the fantastic community that Crest Nicholson created. We made friends with our neighbours and other couples across the development as soon as we moved in. It is great to see what a tight knit community there is! The development is also very well positioned, with plenty of shops, pubs, and looking further ahead, great schools.”

Prices for a four-bedroom house start at £474,950 at Westvale Park. The homes are available on the government backed Help to Buy scheme: Equity Loan or Part Exchange schemes are also available. For more information please call 01293 977980 or visit
