Larkfleet Homes, part of the Larkfleet Group, recently welcomed local homebuyers Martin and Catherine Harnick to its age-exclusive Spinney House development in Yaxley, Cambridgeshire.

Spinney House comprises high-quality, modern one- and two-bedroom apartments for people over 55 years of age and boasts quiet, attractive grounds complete with outside patio and seating areas.

Mr and Mrs Harnick have lived in Yaxley for over 30 years and came across Spinney House when looking into the possibility of ‘downsizing' to a smaller property. Their previous property - a three bedroom semi detached house with a large garden - meant a lot of time and effort was being spent on exterior maintenance and general upkeep.

The Harnick's spacious new two-bedroom duplex apartment at Spinney House features a modern open plan lounge and dining area with an adjoining kitchen and a downstairs WC.

The grounds of Spinney House include plenty of existing mature trees and shared allotments and cycle storage. Residents are also able enjoy the mature gardens surrounding the development, without the added responsibility of maintenance.

Martin Harnick commented: "The nature of the apartments at Spinney House makes them ideal for homebuyers like ourselves, who were looking to ‘downsize' without compromising on quality.

"There is a lovely community in Yaxley and we are delighted to have found somewhere perfect for us in the village so we are still close to friends and family."

Yaxley is in the perfect location for those who prefer rural living but enjoy easy access to city amenities. It is located close the A1, providing excellent transport links. It is also only a short drive or bus ride away from Peterborough that boasts a large shopping centre, cathedral, cinemas, theatres and many restaurants.

Larkfleet Homes won an award at the Global Over 50s Housing Services Awards last year. The honour rewards Larkfleet's commitment to help meet the need for high quality housing in the local area for those over 50 years of age.
