After visiting our popular Petersmiths Park development in Nottinghamshire with her daughter, Paige who was originally looking to buy a Gleeson home, Annie instantly fell in love, so they decided to make a deal. Her daughter would buy her previous home and Annie would move into her dream forever home at Petersmiths Park! We spoke to Annie about her homebuying journey.

“I previously lived in a 3-bedroom semi-detached home and was mortgage free, finally! My daughter was looking for her own house to buy, but most second-hand homes we looked at were just out of her price range. A friend of hers introduced her to Gleeson and we ventured over to view the properties. My daughter loved the homes and the prices, totally affordable, but decided she wanted to stay close to Nottingham on the other hand, instantly fell in love with Petersmiths Park. I loved the location, the views and the prices! So we made a deal, my daughter bought my house at a discount, and I took out a small mortgage and have never looked back.”

Talking about the buying process, Annie went on to say: 

“Initially I was interested in the Kildare and hoped to reserve a plot however, because the development was so popular unfortunately I just missed out. Louise, the Sales Executive convinced me to take a look at a slightly larger home, the 4-bedroom Longford and wow, I’m glad I did! The layout is spacious, the blank canvas gave me so much freedom to make it my own and my front and back garden are both large too. The natural lighting and privacy in my home is something I've never seen on other new build developments before and to top it all off, it’s affordable too! I will always be grateful to Louise, this is my dream home and now I have plenty of space to share this with family and friends when visiting.”

“I would advise anybody who is considering buying a Gleeson home to reserve right away, these homes are so popular and you can see why once you’ve viewed them! I’ve only been here for just over two months and I am very much looking forward to creating my own little haven. I’ve met some wonderful neighbours since moving in and this particular location is close to lots of woods and forest walks, which I have yet to explore. My stress levels are minimal and the air, ambience and vibe of this community are second to none, including the Sales and Build team working on the site!”
