“We didn’t think we would be able to afford to buy a house – not many people have a spare £25,000 or £30,000 lying around for a deposit. But thanks to Help to Buy we have been able to buy our first property together.
“Silver Waters has a really convenient location for both of us. I am an electrician and I didn’t want to be too far away from the area where I work. But one of the main things we liked about the house, an 'Ashton', was having a garage and a good-sized garden for my partner’s daughter to play in.
“We were also really impressed with the space inside. It was quite deceptive from the outside but when we stepped inside, we were amazed by how big the property was.
“It’s nice and quiet here. I used to live on a main road so I was always hearing cars and lorries going past but this location is so peaceful. We really like it here.”
Paul Taylor, Silver Waters resident
