Miller Homes Most Romantic Couple Buy Their First Love Nest

Press Release Miller Homes Most Romantic Couple Buy Their First Love Nest

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Miller Homes is revealing its most romantic housebuyers after a couple got engaged on the plot of land soon to be their brand new property.

Matthew Payne popped the question to his girlfriend Layla Tweedie at the new Miller Homes development in Gilston, Hertfordshire.

On a visit to the Terlings Park site, Matthew got down on one knee on the piece of land where their new home is soon to be built, and as Layla explains, it was all quite a surprise.

“Matthew told me we were going to the site to take some photos of where our new house is being built but when we got there he got down on one knee. He said he was so excited we were buying our first house together and couldn’t wait to spend the rest of his life with me. He then said ‘will you marry me’.

“I replied yes instantly and then he took me for a meal at the pub we went to on our first date, which is now soon to be our ‘local’ in the village.”

Nursery Practitioner Layla and Matthew, who works for The London Underground, now can’t wait to move into their brand new home and start their married life together.

The couple purchased their new immaculately designed and spacious property at Terlings Park just before Christmas and are hoping to move in this summer.
Layla went on to explain: “We have always wanted to buy a new build as it gives us a blank canvas to create and develop it how we want it, which is so exciting.

“We can’t wait to move in to our new house and we’re really looking forward to nice summer walks and bike rides along the river.“

The Miller Homes Terlings Park development is situated between the picturesque Hertfordshire towns of Sawbridgeworth and Ware and offers househunters a rural retreat within close proximity to London.

Tracey Lee, area sales and marketing director at Miller Homes said they’re pleased to welcome Matthew and Layla to Terlings Park and are delighted they picked the site of their new home to get engaged.

She said: “We know how important buying a new property is especially when it’s your first house together and that’s why we do all we can to help buyers on every step of their home buying experience.

“For Matthew and Layla this is the start of a whole new chapter in their life and we’re delighted that Miller Homes is playing a part in that. We hope they will be very happy in their new home.
