30th birthday treat for new homeowners in Suffolk

31 January 2022

Thirty and thriving really is the best saying for new homeowner Kathleen Norris who celebrated her 30th birthday by receiving the keys to her new property in Haverhill, Suffolk.

First-time buyers, Kathleen, and husband Alan, 39, moved into their new townhouse home at the Boyton Place development with their two daughters just in time to celebrate her milestone birthday and to host their first Christmas dinner.

The couple, who originate from Haverhill, chose the property as it offered a great location as well as being the perfect size for their growing family, with three bedrooms all on the same level.

“We have always wanted a townhouse,” said Kathleen. “The extra space is perfect for us and we have turned the study into a playroom for the girls which they love.

“The area just feels so safe. There are only 41 houses on our phase, but we have already got such a feel for the house straight away. We are only round the corner from where we used to live, and we can near enough see our old house.”

“I am still in love with the open plan kitchen/living/dining room – it’s definitely my favourite room. There’s just so much space and we really went to town with the additional features in here.”

The Sanderling style house is a three-bedroom property with an open plan kitchen and diner as well as a utility room. On the second floor you can find three-good sized bedrooms, one complete with an en-suite, plus a family bathroom. The property also benefits from a two-space carport.

Aside from being “over the moon” with the house, Kathleen is quick to praise the Suffolk sales team who supported the family from reservation to moving in day.

“Our buying process was made extremely stress-free thanks to the new homes mortgage specialist we were introduced to by Persimmon. We used the Government’s Help to Buy scheme and any questions that we had were answered so quickly and professionally making our lives very easy.”

Katy Bent Marshall, field sales manager for Persimmon Suffolk said: “There is so much to love about the homes here at Boyton Place, so it’s no real surprise that our buyers feel ‘at home’ from the first day they move in.

“The location is really ideal, and Haverhill is a lovely place to call home. It was great to welcome Kathleen and her family on her 30th birthday, and we hope that they really enjoy their new home here together.”

Boyton Place offers a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes. Find out more here.
