“When I decided what I wanted out of life, Barton Fields Villas became an easy decision.”

Maureen Coates said “Just because I’m over 55 doesn’t mean I have to think about retiring, I’m in the prime of my life and I’m now in a position where I want to enjoy it, and because I like to travel, I need somewhere secure while I’m away.

When I considered downsizing as the old house was taking up too much of my spare time on maintenance and gardening and also a lot of extra cash, I spent some time thinking about what was important to me.

Security was my first consideration but living in a gated community seemed like one step too far. I’m not ready for a retirement home so I kept looking. I thought about quality, I knew that wherever I lived I wanted quality people in a quality community where they took a little time to look out for each other. Then I started looking at the license to occupy villas around Christchurch and when I did the figures they just didn’t stack up.

By owning the freehold at Barton Fields Vilas I can take advantage of any capital gain and I’m not slowly eating away at what I have worked a lifetime for to leave to my children and grandchildren.

I must have looked at half a dozen options but when I saw Barton Fields Villas, where it was located on the outskirts of Lincoln but still handy to everything, Mike Geer Homes being involved and the reputation they have for quality and style, it really became an easy decision.”
