Family is a big part of people’s lives. For Gillian, making the move 200 miles north to our Eden development in Waingroves to be closer to her children and grandchildren was no small step – and finding the perfect home was top of her checklist.
With two children and four grandchildren living in the Derbyshire town of Belper, Gillian was keen to relocate from her home in Gosport, Hampshire.
“Being closer to my family became my priority,” said Gillian. “ I want to see my children, babysit for them, watch my grandchildren grow up and be a big part of their lives,” she added.
Gillian was house hunting in May 2017 during a visit to Derbyshire to see her family, and among the many homes she saw, one of them was a Peveril home. It stood out in her mind amongst all the rest as the quintessential home for her to relocate to. Following many months of pondering the move, Gillian enquired about properties on our Eden development and immediately fell in love with plot 18.
The assistance Gillian received from our Sales Advisor Helen, was a major factor in why she made the move north- “Helen was very supportive and amazing to deal with – she helped me through the entire buying process” said Gillian.
In fact Gillian was so keen on plot 18 after initial discussions with Helen, that she made the purchase before the property was advertised – and without viewing it beforehand.
“I fell in love with it,” she added. “I’m a keen gardener – and this house has a lovely large garden where I can indulge and spend time outdoors – and a beautiful oak tree on the front,”.
“I downsized from a 1932 period house – which was modernised to a high standard – but was old, dated, and drafty. I was looking for something modern, cosy and spacious and most importantly, closer to my family. My new home is everything I was looking for!”.
Gillian has been living at Eden since late January and is now happily relocated closer to her beloved family – with the babysitting beginning in earnest.
