Development on the money for Mrs Honey
13 November 2017
Almost 50 per cent of the houses being built in Ivybridge have already been snapped up – with customers describing their new homes as “luxurious”.
Building work is in full swing at Persimmon Homes’ Harford Mews site on Cornwood Road.
Demand has been sky-high at the development, with 33 of the 74 homes already reserved or bought by eager house hunters.
Sales bosses at Persimmon say that if current demand is maintained, the development will be completely sold out before the middle of 2018.
One lady enjoying her new home is 65-year-old retired curtain maker Marie Honey, who bought a three bedroom semi-detached Clayton Corner property.
“I lived just down the road having moved to Ivybridge 11 years ago,” said grandmother-of-one Mrs Honey.”
“I’ve always fancied living in a new build and this was my chance. I was going to go for one of the smaller properties on site but the Clayton was finished and ready to move into straight away, so I threw caution to the wind and went for it.”
“I’m so happy with it. I have fantastic views across the fields and my neighbours are really friendly.”
“I’ve already landscaped the garden and put my log cabin in. The bedrooms are a nice size and it feels like a luxurious home. I’m enjoying wining and dining my friends, who are all impressed.”
There is a wide range of properties available at Harford Mews including two and three bed semi-detached properties and a four bed detached Roseberry.
And it is still possible to move in for Christmas – if customers put down a deposit soon.
The properties which will be finished by the time Father Christmas starts his rounds include plots nine and 10, which are two bedroom Mordens, and plot 33, which is a two bedroom semi-detached Alnwick.
What’s more, Persimmon is offering to pay the Stamp Duty and contribute £1,000 towards the legal fees on those homes.
Nina Hester, sales and marketing director at Persimmon Homes South West, said: “We’re delighted with the progress at Harford Mews, which is fast becoming a lovely community.
“Mrs Honey has been a great customer to deal with and we’re over the moon that she is so happy and settled in her new home.”
The popular Help to Buy scheme is available at Harford Mews. Under the initiative, the purchaser produces a five per cent deposit and the Government steps in with a 20 per cent equity loan, leaving a 75 per cent mortgage.
