‘Liv­ing here was the cat’s whiskers’

Fam­ily wowed by pet-friendly home

WHEN Wendy and Neale Fraser went search­ing for their first fam­ily home their trav­els took them to Langdykes Cres­cent. Wendy, 41, who works part-time at Rolls Wood Group, said: “We both re­ally liked the look of this street, and we es­pe­cially liked the fact the houses sit on a cul-de-sac. How­ever, none were for sale. “Then only a few weeks later, two came up for sale at the same time.” The first had been snapped up by the time Wendy and Neale, 43 – a marine con­sul­tant with MAC – found out about it, but they were de­lighted to set up their view­ing at num­ber 30. “We had two cats at the time, and when I saw the prop­erty had a cat flap I took it as a sign,” she said. The cou­ple have en­joyed their time at the de­tached prop­erty, where they have raised their chil­dren Joel, 9, and Katie, 7. Plan­ning per­mis­sion had been granted to ex­tend the prop­erty fur­ther, but they never got round to it. Over the years, the cou­ple have over­hauled their three­bed­room home. They have in­stalled new dou­bleglaz­ing, a new bath­room, and a kitchen, which is on open-plan with the sun lounge. Wendy, a dabhand with a paint brush, has worked her magic on the prop­erty, en­sur­ing the new own­ers sim­ply need to put their fur­ni­ture in place. “We’ve had a great time here, and hope the next own­ers en­joy it as much as we have,” she said.
