First time buyers get foot on the ladder with Harron Homes

A couple in their twenties have bought their first home together using the government’s popular Help to Buy scheme at Harron Homes’ Lavender Fold development in Mapplewell.

George Hughes (24), Annabel Mills (23) and their one-year-old daughter Layla moved into their brand new, four bedroom Baybridge home at the end of March this year, along with their pet cat Rusko, after renting a home together before.

“I’d always lived near where Lavender Fold is being built,” said Annabel, from Mapplewell, “in fact I used to play in the area there when I was growing up. I was walking Layla there one day soon after she’d been born and noticed signs up saying there was going to be a new development, so I told George and we went to visit Harron’s Sales Centre.”

“Harron’s Sales staff have been really helpful and friendly,” said George, from Barnsley, “particularly Tracey, who showed us how we could use Help to Buy to make our money go further and buy the home we wanted.”

The family are enjoying life in their new Baybridge home, which comes with an integral garage, high specification kitchen and dining area, utility room and downstairs w/c plus a spacious lounge on the ground floor. Upstairs can be found a family bathroom and four double bedrooms, one of which is a master bedroom with an en suite.

Annabel concluded, “We were moved in to our home within schedule, which made our move quick and easy, and we couldn’t be more pleased with how everything has gone. We have friends who have also purchased a home on site and they’re just as pleased. I would definitely recommend Harron Homes to anybody looking to secure a home.”

Katie Charlesworth, Director of Sales & Marketing for Harron Homes, said, “It’s always a special moment when first time buyers choose one of our brand new properties as their first home together. We’d like to welcome George, Annabel and little Layla to Lavender Fold and wish them many happy years here. This is a great place for growing families from all walks of life to call their home.”
