Tailor-Made Home For Dressmaker

Wednesday 20th December 2023

A new home for a Nottinghamshire dressmaker has become the perfect fit for showcasing her sewing skills.

Gill Cottle’s new address in Radcliffe on Trent is tailor-made for creating wonderful clothes, with plenty of room for a purpose-built dressmaker’s studio.

After choosing her perfect plot at Prince’s Place, Gill says the buying process with award-winning developer William Davis Homes was seamless.

“The whole move went very smoothly and everyone at William Davis has been really helpful, from sales to the site teams. The after-sales service is excellent. I can see why they’ve won the national five-star award for customer satisfaction for eight years running.”

After moving into the spacious three-bedroom Dee, Gill set about creating lovely curtains for her new home. “My studio is a lovely space for working with different types of materials,” said Gill. “It’s light and bright and I can look out onto my lovely garden too.”

“I’ve sewn all my life and I love working with my hands. When I was a teenager, I made all my own clothes. I like being creative and I’ve made many bespoke items, including a lovely ladies coat for a wedding and a gentleman’s suit.”

As well as creating new items, Gill also carries out alterations and has her own website to showcase her work. She also set-up a Facebook group for residents at Prince’s Place and has made many new friends, especially while walking her dog, Bertie.

Gill moved to Radcliffe on Trent from Watlington in Oxfordshire, to be close to one of her sons and his family. She visited several developments and chose William Davis Homes because of the company’s reputation for quality and the impressive lay-out of the homes at Prince’s Place.

“I chose a new-build property because I want to keep my household bills down, as well as having somewhere that’s low maintenance and doesn’t need work doing on it,” added Gill.

“This house has been built to a really good standard. The sales consultant, Marie, was excellent and made sure everything was sorted out for me.”

All William Davis properties come with high-spec interior finishes featuring top brand names such as Smeg, Roca and Porcelanosa. Homes also have the Hive Smart Heating System.

The Head of Marketing at William Davis Homes, Sarah Adul, said she was delighted that Gill had settled in well to her new home, adding:

“William Davis Homes has a range of tailor-made offers to create a home that’s a perfect fit.”
