First buyers move into Saltersford Gardens
The first home is now occupied at Russell Homes’ Saltersford Gardens development in Holmes Chapel.
Rachel Wilcock and her partner Paul Charters moved into their stunning new four-bedroom house over Easter.
The couple are over the moon with their purchase, which has also allowed Rachel to move back to the town where she used to live. They have bought the first Cawson-style property, which has four double bedrooms and a traditional ground floor layout with a spacious lounge at the front and open plan kitchen diner across the rear.
Rachel said: “We were pretty much waiting on the doorstep of the marketing suite when it opened and I’m delighted to be the first to get a house at Saltersford Gardens, we’re so excited to be here!
“We were blown away by the house, we really were. When we first came there was no showhome available yet so we actually drove to another Russell Homes development in Norden to see this particular housetype and then drove straight back to put down our deposit.
“I’ve never lived in a new build before and before we came here I was looking at a Grade II-listed cottage that needed doing up, and I’ve moved from a Victorian semi. But then I saw this and it is seriously fantastic. It’s attractive with a lovely outlook, it has all the space I want, I love the layout, the bedrooms are really good sizes, and the finish is exceptional. All I needed to do was choose my curtains and light fittings and start unpacking the boxes, how easy is that?”
The pair plan to welcome more friends and family to stay in the spacious guest rooms. They have already been making the most of the local nightlife and restaurants, and Rachel is looking forward to getting to know the town again.
She said: “Holmes Chapel is a lovely area and Saltersord Gardens is in such a gorgeous position just on the edge of the town. I used to live here years ago before moving in with Paul, and it’s wonderful to be back.
“We’ve had a really positive experience buying with Russell Homes. Everyone has been extremely helpful and accommodating, even when we asked for somethings that friends told me no housebuilder would ever agree to, they were happy to help.
“The site manager and the sales consultant have been lovely and we’re really impressed with how well-thought-through everything in the house is.”
Gill Richardson, Russell Homes sales manager, said: “It is wonderful to welcome the first buyers to Saltersford Gardens, it’s a special time for everyone at Russell Homes to see the properties finally becoming homes, and it is so lovely that Rachel and Paul are so pleased with everything. It has been a pleasure getting to know them and we hope they will enjoy being part of the Saltersford Gardens community.”
