Family Find Everything Is Hunky-Dory With Three Storeys

Upsizing at one of Bedfordshire’s freshest family hotspots, a couple have discovered the many benefits of three storey living at Barratt Homes’ Willow Grove development in Wixams.

The new community on Southern Cross is becoming a flourishing location for growing families, one which Emel, Anthony and Tony (7) White have recently called home.

Emel and Anthony, an IT Business Analyst and a Civil Engineer, have made the move to Willow Grove from Pulloxhill and used the Part Exchange scheme in doing so.

Emel said: “Purchasing a three storey property ensured the home was big enough for our family and friends. It has a study downstairs which we are currently using as a toy room for Tony, whilst the three bedrooms are all doubles.

“Using the Part Exchange scheme sped up the process and our purchasing and buying experience was really good. We also used Barratt Homes’ recommended Financial Advisor and solicitors.

“The local schools in Wixams are great. Everyone here is pleasant and a lot of people are working professionals like us.”

The couple opted for a Haversham style home, a three bedroom townhouse, providing them with an independent space for their growing family on the top floor.

Emel added: “This property is new, bigger and just feels like a home for us. The 10-year NHBC warranty also provides us with assurance and security.

“We were particularly very happy with Tina and Francesco, the Sales Advisers, as they have been great support and were with us through every step. We’d definitely recommend Barratt Homes to our Family Find Everything Is Hunky-Dory With Three Storeys family and friends.”

Barratt Homes’ Part Exchange scheme means the developer purchases the customer’s current property in part exchange for a new home. This cuts out estate agent fees and chains and provides the customer with a guaranteed buyer for their home.

Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Emel, Anthony and Tony to Willow Grove and it’s great to learn they are making the most of the practical layout of their home.

“The Part Exchange scheme is beneficial for many buyers and we’ve been able to take care of the sale of Anthony and Emel’s previous property, allowing them to move straight into their new home.

“A welcoming community is blossoming at Willow Grove and we’d encourage anyone interested in the properties available to visit the Sales Advisers to learn more.”

The development is ideal for working professionals with strong commuter links, connecting homebuyers to London and Milton Keynes by road, as well as Bedford train station offering a direct service to London St Pancras.

A selection of highly-rated primary and secondary schools are situated nearby for the benefit of growing families, in addition to options for family days out such as Priory Country Park and The Embankment Gardens.

Willow Grove currently has an extensive selection of two, three and four bedroom properties available with prices starting from £234,495.
