Family bond leads to Llanelli

14 December 2010

The father-daughter bond is alive and kicking at Persimmon Homes’ Ffos Las development in Trimsaran.

Linda Southall, originally from Plymouth, and her father have upped sticks to escape the rat race of urban living and set up home next door to each other in rural South Wales.

Having visited Camarthenshire on holiday, Linda and her husband decided that this was the place for them to start a new life.

And because Linda and 85-year old Gordon are so close, he also decided to follow in her footsteps having never even set eyes on the development.

Linda comments: “Although we weren’t looking to move home, when we saw the development and its location – in an area of what we consider to be outstanding natural beauty - we knew that this was the place we wanted to live.”

Situated next to Ffos Llas racecourse, this Persimmon development boasts a range of houses for sale in Llanelli, stunning open views to the sea in the south-west, and to spectacular rolling hills in the west and north-west. Its breathtaking scenery, and close proximity to beautiful beaches make it an ideal choice for those seeking a tranquil and relaxing lifestyle in a rural setting.

Linda adds: “Both myself and my husband have flexible professions so being tied to an area wasn’t a problem for us, and because Dad was keen to move to somewhere that offered a far easier way of life, it seemed perfect for all of our needs and luckily he trusted my choice and judgement on his next new home.”

Linda and husband Jason eventually decided on a four bedroom three storey townhouse, and she chose the same design for her Dad too, as he is a young 86-year old.

They sold their properties in the South West and moved in to their new Persimmon homes within a month of each other and both agree that it couldn’t have been an easier process or better choice.

Gordon said: “I’m absolutely over the moon with the property that I didn’t even see before purchasing and the development that I didn’t even visit until I move in and can’t speak highly enough of it or the buying process with Persimmon. All our needs, requests and queries were dealt with efficiently and we received weekly phone calls to update us of progress.

“I’m really very happy with everything and feel like I have stepped back in time because it’s such a friendly place to be and everyone has time to stop and talk to each other. What’s more, with such stunning scenery on my doorstep as well as beaches and mountains, I can go walking with my dog whenever I want and I know I’ll never tire of the views”

Katherine Faull, sales director for Persimmon Homes West Wales, comments: “We are really pleased that Linda, Jason and Gordon have found their perfect location and homes with us. Ffos Las has become a highly sought after development for the reasons the very reasons they have stated; it’s friendly, surrounded by wonderful countryside as well as scenery and offers buyers a good range of property choices. We wish them all the very best for the future.”
