Newly-weds, Aaron and Donna Knighton have been able to start married life as home owners after purchasing a new house on Westleigh Homes Hatton Grange development in Peterborough. Using the new Help to Buy scheme the couple, who have two children aged four and 10 months, purchased a two bedroom house just around the corner from where they had been previously renting.
Warehouse Operative, Aaron, 24, said: “Before the Help to Buy scheme we thought that we would have no chance of owning a family home and we also didn’t want to move far from the area. However, everything seemed to fall into place over the summer when the Help to Buy scheme became available on Westleigh’s new development and we viewed a two bedroom house that was just perfect for what we wanted.”
Located on Windsor Avenue, the development has only been open since June, yet it has proved so popular that nearly all 30 new homes have been sold. Donna, 26, explained why Hatton Grange was the ideal place to begin her family’s new chapter: “Our new home is absolutely perfect for the four of us, I love the space, the interior and the mortgage payments are cheaper than renting, making us more secure as a family than ever before.”
Robert Orr, Sales & Marketing Manager at Westleigh New Homes commented: “We are delighted that Aaron and Donna have chosen a Westleigh home to start their new lives together and we congratulate them on their marriage. Help to Buy has been a great success at Hatton Grange, so much so that we have nearly sold all 30 homes so anyone interested better be quick.”
