Julia Franks is currently working with Vantage Homes, who are building her a ‘Sarah’ 2 bedroom home.
Mrs Franks wanted to downsize from the family home and she looked around for a long time before she found Clearview Rise.
"Clearview Rise really is the best option available in Roma. It’s brand new, and my builders are Vantage which means that the whole thing will be done for me. I haven’t got to organise the lawn, or build a fence. They take care of all that. When my house is finished I can just move in!"
Mrs Franks has lived in Roma for 40 years, and over that time, she has seen the town change a lot.
"Roma has gone from a little country town to a very busy place over the years. When I first came here, you didn’t have to worry about looking either way before you crossed the road.
"You knew everyone, and you didn’t bother to lock the car or the house. There are still a lot of old faces, but lots of new ones too.
"I couldn’t keep up with the upkeep on my old three bedroom home on a big block. My new home is a perfect size for me – it’s big enough for one. And the yard is smaller and easier to care for.
"Vantage have been good to work with, they take care of everything – blinds, fences, yard, even a letterbox. It’s all a part of the package."
