Young family thanks Peveril for great service enabling them to be in their new home in time for Christmas
As 24-year-old hairdresser, Lucy, places the star on top of the Christmas tree in the spacious lounge of her new home, she’s feeling warm, cosy and happy – safe in the knowledge that she, her partner Laurence (Loz) and their 3-year-old son Mason are now living closer to family in their new Peveril home.
It’s a familiar scenario. When a baby arrives on the scene, many couples look to move just that bit closer to doting grandparents keen to help ease the pressure of childcare and provide that extra help and support with busy family life. Lucy and Loz were no different, and through regular trips to Lucy’s parents from their home in Mickleover, they spotted a new housing development featuring beautiful new homes that were ticking all the right boxes.
“I’m from the Smalley area originally and my parents still live here, so when we saw new homes being built close by we were really excited,” says Lucy. “We always knew it was a new-build we were after, and the style of the homes on the Peveril development at Smalley Manor were by far our favourite, so we booked a viewing as soon as we could.”
Seeing the 4-bed detached Grangewood with her mum for the first time, Lucy immediately fell in love with the design – particularly the amount of downstairs living space compared to the 3-storey house they were living in at that time.
“I loved the bright open feeling of the hallway and I knew having a utility room would be ideal for our lifestyle with a 3-year-old!” says Lucy. “I was keen for Loz to come and see the house as soon as possible as I knew they were selling fast!”
As Lucy predicted, Loz also fell for the quality and style of the Grangewood, with its ensuite and single garage, and the young family made the decision to put their current home on the market straight away.
“Our sales advisors at Peveril, Janine and Carla, were hugely helpful from the outset,” says Lucy. “They put us in touch with their independent financial advisors who talked us through all the finance options and helped us sort our mortgage quickly and easily.”
Legally completing on their existing house only eight weeks later, the young family moved in with Lucy’s parents for a short while before their new home was complete – receiving their keys on 11 November.
“The whole Peveril team have been a great support throughout the entire moving process,” says Lucy. “They’ve all bent over backwards to ensure everything has run as smoothly as possible – and even when there were the inevitable ‘snags’ that come with all new-builds, they’ve sorted them really quickly and efficiently.”
Lucy continues, “It’s fantastic to be celebrating our first Christmas closer to family in our lovely new home. In terms of both service and the homes, I’d definitely recommend Peveril to anyone!”
