We were delighted when Clive Parkhurst registered with us to help him and his wife find their next home. Rather than simply list their requirements, he sent in this lovely poem encompassing everything on their wish list.
In the spirit of the Cheltenham Literature Festival, which starts next month, we thought it would be nice to share his poem. If you think you have something that ticks all the boxes for Clive do let our Cirencester office know (tel. 01285 655355).
We’re in our 50s, with kids all gone
Noise and mayhem, there is now none!
Peace and quiet is what we seek
A rural idyll, our country retreat.
A house with charm and character abound
With views across our fair English land.
A village location with Ye Olde World pub
The heart of the community, a real hub!
Currently in rented, we’re set to pounce
On a cottage that makes our heart dance!
450K is our maximum spend
For perfection, a little we might just bend.
Give us a good-sized lounge with an inglenook fire
Something romantic, to warm and inspire.
A bathroom and a half is our request
Two bedrooms at least will suit us the best.
We still have to work to pay our way
Parking for two cars, if we may!
Within 25 miles of GL1
You’ll find that’s our wishes, now all done.
You’re the professionals we all come to
To make our property dreams come true.
Give us a call if you’re able to find
That perfect home we have in mind!
