A Northamptonshire couple found that buying with David Wilson Homes was all glitz and glam at The Avenue in Northampton.
As well as being a Governance and Control Manager for a bank, Ben Abel is drag queen, Miss Faye Couture and a new home is just what he needed.
Ben Abel, Tony Hill and their puppy Frank recently upsized to a three bedroom Archford type home at the development and are really enjoying the extra space.
Ben said: “As well as myself and my partner moving into our new home, it also meant that my alter-ego could move in and have her own room too!
“In my spare time I am drag queen, Miss Faye Couture. Our new home has meant that Faye has her own room, with space for a sparkling glittery closet, a wall of wigs and a huge makeup mirror.”
Ben has had great fun being Faye for the past eight years. He has always been a creative person and the transformation from start to finish has always fascinated him.
After meeting boyfriend Tony, Ben found that they needed more spacious home.
He said: “This is our first home together, when we met in 2018, I had already outgrown my old house so it was perfect timing to upsize together.
“With so many housebuilders out there, we went on reputations, and from what we’d seen of David Wilson Homes and knowing people who have owned their properties, they were the ones that stood out for us.
“I’ve always liked new build properties as everything is clean, crisp and fresh when you move in, a blank canvas to make your own.
“Our house has a bay window, which I’ve always loved as it gives character and brings much more light into the house.”
After moving into their beautiful new home, Ben found that it has also given him space for all of the other sequins in his life, as a ballroom and Latin dancer.
Ben added: “I started four years ago as a contestant in a charity ‘Strictly’ event and fell in love with dance immediately.
“I have continued as one of the ‘pro’ dancers appearing in eight different ‘Strictly-style’ events, helping to raise lots of much needed money for a number of local charities.”
Ben has lived in Northampton for 20 years and felt that that Moulton was such a nice village and felt special to the couple.
Ben added: “Moulton is a lovely area and such a beautiful village, there is three pubs within walking distance and a range of shops and cafes.
“But the best thing about living at The Avenue is walking through the front door and seeing what we have created together, that feeling of warmth and happiness knowing it’s our home, and seeing our beautiful pup Frank!
“It could have been the most awful day at work but, coming home and seeing him looking up, smiling with his tail wagging and wanting a cuddle makes everything ok.”
The Avenue is now on phase two of the popular development and is offering a range of three, four and five bedroom homes for keen housebuyers to reserve, starting from £272,995.
