Finding their forever home!
How a young Birmingham couple found their forever home at Regency Grange
After spending the last five years living in a two-bedroom apartment in Stourbridge, West Midlands, Georgie, 26 and her fiancé Luke, 31, decided it was time to take the next step in their life. With a wedding on the horizon, the couple were looking for the perfect spot to plant their feet and start their married life.
Georgie, a finance manager and Luke, a sports coach, made the move down South seeking an area that was commutable to both London and Brighton for future career opportunities, that provided excellent schools and a flourishing neighborhood with a close-knit community. After making the journey south to Royal Tunbridge Wells, the couple discovered Regency Grange and found their forever home.
Georgie commented, “It was actually my parents who introduced us to the area as after moving here in September 2019. My Dad had been familiar with Royal Tunbridge Wells having previously lived in nearby Maidstone and couldn’t stop going on about how great the location was. They suggested we come and visit, so we went online and found Regency Grange. When we made the trip, we knew straight away it was for us. The sun was out, and everything was lit perfectly through the front double-aspect windows.”
Luke added, “Our new house is positioned in such a fantastic spot. There is a real sense of community locally, as well as in the town centre. For when our family grows, we have good schools, a cricket club and a local gym all within walking distance – it’s perfect for us.”
“We wanted our home to be somewhere that didn’t feel too alien from our old city life. It was certainly a change, but the local area has many cafes and shops nearby, allowing us to have the same creature comforts. We also now have the benefit of fantastic country walks for the weekends and we’re never too far from cities such London and Brighton which is great for both our careers.”
Georgie echoed Luke’s sentiment surrounding the ideal family environment on offer at Regency Grange. She said, “From the beginning, we were impressed with the diversity of the nightlife and weekend activities on offer. We didn’t want to compromise on our lifestyle and thankfully we didn’t have to. We have so many local high street pubs, gin and cocktail bars and restaurants.”
Whilst the Kent town is what initially drew Georgie and Luke to the area, the couple continue to fall in love with their home every day. The couple live at the house with their two three-year-old Guinea pigs.
“It was literally love at first sight – and still is. We wake up feeling like we live in a plush hotel. We’ve been really impressed with the quality and finish of the house. Unlike other new builds that we have visited, everything is fitted and has worked well from day one. We can’t wait to spend forever in our new home.”
