Elissa Murrin and Giles Watkinson found everything they were looking for in their first home together at our Ridgewood Place development in Uckfield.
The couple, who moved into their new three bedroom Alton G home in December 2019, have settled into life at the development and are looking forward to what the future holds for them as part of the growing Uckfield community.
The decision to move to Ridgewood Place was an easy one for the couple. Elissa said: “Our first impressions of the development were very positive. It is close enough to visit our friends and family but far enough away from our old home that it feels like a fresh start.”
After looking at the variety of houses available at Ridgewood Place and discussing their options with the sales team, Elissa and Giles chose the three bedroom Alton G house type. Giles said: “We wanted a home where we can grow as a family and the Alton G was perfect for us. The biggest selling point was the large master bedroom on the top floor; it’s such a hidden gem. All of the rooms are spacious and airy and the large kitchen-diner means we have plenty of space to entertain.”
To secure their home Elissa and Giles opted to use our Easymover scheme and the Government backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme. Giles said: “Both schemes were extremely helpful with our move As our estate agency fees were covered with Easymover, we were able to save money and upgrade our flooring and kitchen. Using the Help to Buy scheme also meant that we only needed a 5% deposit towards our new home which meant we were able to move to a bigger house than we thought.
“We absolutely love our new home and moving to Ridgewood Place was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. We are so excited to see what our future holds here.”
