The Richardson’s, a family of four from Northamptonshire, have purchased their dream home at Crest Nicholson’s Fallowfields at Monksmoor Park development in Daventry. With space and close proximity to the great outdoors a key consideration, the family lived in the nearby town of Lilbourne prior to buying at Fallowfields.

In order to save for the £303,000 property, the Richardson’s moved in with family to enable them to secure the deposit on their four bedroom ‘dream home’. Paul Richardson works in the automotive industry in Daventry and now enjoys a short cycle to work each morning. The couple’s two young children also attend a nearby school, making Fallowfields location perfect for the entire family.

Sharon Richardson comments, ‘the layout of the Fallowfields development has been beautifully done, it just feels so spacious. There’s not one thing about the development or the home itself that I’d change, it’s absolutely perfect for our needs’.

The development is also perfectly situated for an active family such as the Richardson’s and is located next to 140 acres of Daventry Country Park, where the family often ride their bikes and go for long walks. Sharon notes that she is looking forward to the summer months, when the children will be able to spend even more time playing in the rural open space that surrounds the development.  

For Sharon, the best part of her new home is the large, open plan kitchen and dining area, where the family spends most of its time relaxing and entertaining guests. ‘It’s just great to have this large area in our home where all the family can come together and spend time, it’s such a light and spacious part of the home’.

Sharon also praised the town of Daventry itself, located just a few minutes’ drive from the development. It boasts a host of family friendly activities including a variety of independent, boutique stores, as well as popular high street retailers such as Waitrose and Boots, a monthly local Farmer’s market and a fine art gallery at the Evergreen Art Café.  ‘Everyone in the town is just so polite and friendly, it’s a fantastic place to live’.

Homes at Fallowfields are still available, with prices starting from £220,950. The Crest Nicholson marketing suite and show homes are open daily from 10am to 5pm, call 01327 705589
