Family trade in the 'Big Smoke' for bespoke rural retreat


THE ROBINSON family – who swapped their busy city life for a four-bedroom property at Lovell’s rural Weston Woods development – have put a personal touch on their new countryside home by making the most of Lovell Homes’ Inspirations service.

After enjoying the benefits of living in a large city, Toni and Shannon Robinson relocated with their two children to Weston village in the search of a quieter, more relaxed lifestyle.Robinson Family Weston

Toni, 27 said: “During our house hunt, we were keen to have a change of scenery and find a modern house based in a picturesque, rural location – and Weston Woods offered us just that.

“The development provided us with the best of both worlds - we were able to buy a house that was surrounded by idyllic countryside, while still being in close proximity to all the amenities and transport links we could ever need.


“Not only did we fall in love with the property’s location, but we also enjoyed being able to design our interiors exactly how we wanted them with the help of Lovell’s Inspirations team.”

Toni and Shannon chose to upgrade their kitchen surfaces to granite, aswell as choosing unique taps, showers and tiles to give their home a more personal finish.

Toni continued: “Buying a new build was a new experience for us and it’s something we’d definitely do again. It enabled us to avoid the stress of dealing with previous property owners and being stuck in a chain, as well as being able to make all of the upgrades we wanted through one supplier, which really streamlined the process.



“Having a fresh, blank canvas that we could personalise and make our own before we even moved into the property made the buying process so easy – we can’t recommend it highly enough.”

The Robinson family reserved the Redbourne property in September 2020 and completed the purchase in January 2021.

Shannon, 34, said: “The space offered by the Redbourne is the epitome of family living – providing us with a large living and kitchen space so we can truly make the most of our time together and entertain our loved ones.


“Although we chose to move home during a challenging time – with the pandemic notoriously slowing down a lot of house sales – Lovell was incredibly accommodating and stuck to our agreed timescales, so we can now look forward to spending 2021 settling into our brand-new countryside home.”
