‘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.
