The Year of a Million Dreams for James and Olivia

Countryside buyers James, Olivia and Minnie

A lot can happen in the space of a year and for James and Olivia, 2021 has been a truly magical year, with some extraordinary milestones reached along the way.

We first met them towards the end of last year - just as they had found and reserved their dream Countryside home - and their story is one that has been making us smile ever since.

One Winter’s Day

It’s nearly twelve months since James and Olivia moved into their brand new three-bedroom Blyth home at Wilson Chase and when we caught up with them again recently, Olivia told us “it’s everything we ever wanted - and more!”

“We made it our own from the beginning and it feels like we’ve been here forever, but it was being able to bring our baby, Minnie, home to this house that really made it feel like ‘home’.”

Two Became Three

Buying a new home is one of life’s milestones, but in May, James and Olivia celebrated the biggest of them all when they welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Minnie, into the world.

“It’s been a major dream come true and we’re so grateful that Minnie will grow up to live in this beautiful house. Her Disney-themed bedroom has been a big hit - it’s the perfect size for what she needs and we’re sure she’ll love it as much as we do.

A Christmas Fairytale

2021 is one that has been packed full of precious moments for James and Olivia and there’s even more to come.

“We’ve decorated the house with lots of bright colours and lights for Minnie’s first Christmas - it’s our favourite time of the year and we’re so excited to finally experience it as a family.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing her downstairs from her room and into our living room where all her presents will be under the tree. We don’t have a chimney, so we’ll be leaving a special key out for Santa! 

Happily Ever After

“Christmas Day will be spent surrounded by family - we’ve been desperate to cook a roast dinner for everyone and our home is the perfect space to host it.

“The kitchen is actually our favourite room to spend time in. One of us can be getting dinner ready and the other chilling out playing with Minnie, but we are all still together as a family.”
