Like Mother, like daughter at Heyford Park

When Christine Prior decided to sell her house in Chesterton and move to Heyford Park, a growing community built by Dorchester Living, it was an unusual case of daughter knows best.

After making the hard decision to put her family home on the market, Christine decided to check out the Heyford Park scheme after her daughter had bought there. Having liked the area so much, Christine went on to purchase a four-bedroom detached house.

Christine, who lives at the house with her rescue dog Norman, has moulded the property to fit her lifestyle. One of the bedrooms has been converted into a dressing room whilst the other two bedrooms have been converted into a home study and guest bedroom.

One of the biggest perks of the new home for Christine is having a huge amount of green space on her doorstep. She commented:

“The countryside really is at your disposal. Obviously Norman is a big fan and it’s brilliant to have rolling green fields within moments of the house. Bicester is only 10 minutes away – it is honestly the best of both worlds.”

“I also have a private garden at my house, so I’m looking forward to enjoying that in the warmer months and entertaining guests. I haven’t had a summer at the house yet – I can’t wait!”

Not only do the mother daughter duo live moments from each other, but they also work together too. The journey to work is only a 20-minute drive via the A34 into Oxford and is something that they often share.

Speaking of her experience with the buying process, Christine could not have been more pleased with the service.

“Everyone at Dorchester made the process so much easier. Even to this day, they have been really kind, trusting and friendly, which is extremely helpful in a somewhat stressful decision. It’s great to know there is a strong support system if anything were to go wrong with the house.”

Making the decision for a new beginning was a big commitment for Christine, however the convenience of having her daughter only a four-minute walk away was a calming reassurance. It also gave her daughter a new side project.

“My daughter is really into her interior design, so she helped me kit the house out. It was quite the therapeutic process as we got to start from scratch with a blank canvas. The house looks fantastic and I just love coming home.”
