Blended Bedfordshire Family Brought Together At Willow Grove

A Bedfordshire couple have settled into their new property at Barratt Homes’ Willow Grove and have fallen in love with the family features the development provides their three children with. 

Jessica Desouza (32) and Luke Andrews (35) have purchased a four bedroom property, which offers more than enough room for them and their children, Eefah-Louise (8), Ariana (4) and baby Lochlan (3 months). 

Jessica, originally from Luton, said: “Ever since the arrival of our little one, we wanted to find a space that equally accommodates everyone.

“With Luke’s child Eefah-Louise and my daughter Ariana living together in one space, it was important to make everyone feel a part of the family.

“Choosing to purchase a property from Barratt Homes was a no-brainer, as it was recommended to us by a friend who lives nearby.

“Once we viewed this property, we knew it was the right place for us!”

The couple, a HR Advisor and an IT analyst, have purchased the Milfield style home from the leading developer. The bottom floor of the property provides the family lounge and an impressive open-plan kitchen with dining area and French doors leading to the garden, setting a relaxing atmosphere for meal times.

Up the stairs, a family bathroom and an en suite to the master bedroom offers a great space for the whole family and with four double bedrooms, everyone has a place to make their own. 

Jessica continued: “I previously lived in a three bedroom property, but it didn’t feel right for our growing family and we wanted a place that everyone could call home. Blended Bedfordshire Family Brought Together At Willow Grove

“The thought of moving felt like it would be a lot of hassle, but Barratt Homes laid out how we could make the move to a bigger house a reality.

“We used the Part Exchange scheme and knowing we didn’t have to find a buyer and could move when we want to, allowed us to move on our own terms.”

The Part Exchange scheme is a popular initiative which is ideal for those who are looking to move to a larger home, but are struggling to find a buyer, or simply want to cut out all the hassle of selling their current property independently.

Jessica said: “Our new house is perfect for us in so many ways, it feels much warmer, more spacious and our new community is thriving and wonderful to be a part of.”

Willow Grove is located on Southern Cross in Wixams, with a range of two, three and four bedroom homes available. Wixams is a flourishing village, with local restaurants and amenities offering residents plenty to do at the weekend, nearby.

The development suits a variety of lifestyles and for working professionals, rail and road connections offer quick and easy routes to work. With fast direct trains into London St Pancras from Bedford train station and the A6 and A421 providing excellent road links to Luton and Milton Keynes, wherever you need to go, the journey will be made much simpler.

For the family, the scenery and green open spaces are the highlight of this development.

Jessica continued: “The parks close to home means we’re able to put our shoes on and within two minutes, take the kids to the playground on the development.

“It’s lovely being able to let our children play outside nearby, instead of them being on their phones all day and it offers us a different lifestyle from what we had before.”

The couple are now loving watching their children grow up in the new property and are glad they chose to move with Barratt Homes.

Jessica said: “We wanted to look for a company that prioritises customer service and it was obvious that Barratt Homes did just that.

“The Sales Advisers were welcoming and wanted to help, we really felt comfortable and listened to.

“It’s so nice to know our daughters will grow up in a place with plenty of space, where they can run around and make it their own!”
