Despite the many stumbling blocks there are when take that first step on to the property ladder, this couple has saved a deposit, secured a mortgage and moved in to their first home at Laurel Grove, Peveril Homes’ development of three-bedroom properties, in Uttoxeter.
Kim said: “As soon as I saw the Jasmine, I knew that it was the one for us. We thought that we’d have to wait until the end of the year to buy the type of home which we wanted, but the three-bedroom terrace was exactly what we were looking for and at the right price.
“We went to have a look around and that was it – we fell in love with the house and moved in six weeks later.”
Both Kim and Aaron were moving out of their parents’ home for the first time, after living just a couple of houses away from each other for most of their life, in the small village of Rocester.
Kim said: “We’ve been together for six years and saved for a long time. It feels great to have our own space, but still not too far from our family. The location is perfect, as we both work in Uttoxeter. The development is lovely and quiet, but also really close to the centre of the town, which is great.”
The couple has bought a Jasmine house type which features an open-plan lounge and dining room, a kitchen and convenient cloakroom. The first floor offers three well-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Kim concludes: “Buying with Peveril Homes has been so easy for us: we were offered incentives to help us to get moving and, even though this was our first home, the sales staff were so helpful throughout the buying process that we were totally at ease – they made the whole thing stress free. We’ve settled in nicely now, but it still hasn’t totally sunk in yet that this is our home – it seems too good to be true.”
These homes offer a great chance for both first-time buyers and downsizers to enjoy the benefits of living close to the countryside, while being a commutable distance from major towns and cities. For commuters, the A50 is just moments away, providing great links to the M6 and M1, for travel further afield.
