Cranbrook couple celebrate new arrival

30 January 2013

A new addition to the Cranbrook neighbourhood has given one Exeter couple even more news to celebrate.

Not only were Mr and Mrs Knight one of the first occupants to move into a brand new home at Persimmon Homes Galileo, but they were also the first couple to have a baby.

Nicky Knight, 32, a psychology secondary school teacher, said: “We are over the moon with our beautiful boy Flynn and living in such a lovely community certainly helps now that we have two children to look after.

Cranbrook is unlike any other area we have lived in before as everyone sort of moved in together.  This means we have quickly become a close community of friends.  Cranbrook also offers us benefits such as its eco-friendly features, a school that our three year old son now attends and its close proximity to Exeter city centre.
“Thanks to Persimmon we purchased a plot under the Government’s FirstBuy scheme, which has helped us take that first important step on to the property ladder.”
Nina Hester, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes South West, said: “We are so pleased for Nicky and Jay on their new arrival.  Cranbrook is the perfect development for growing families and we’d encourage anyone looking to purchase a new family home to come and take a look around our beautiful showhomes and witness for yourself the friendly community spirit that has been created.”

Persimmon Homes Galileo offers a wide range of contemporary three, four and five bedroom homes priced from £209,995.  The next phase of the Government scheme FirstBuy is also available on plots 48, 49 and 264 the three bedroom Chaucer house type and anyone wanting further information should call 0843 357 6772.
