First residents move into new Barry waterfront development
27 July 2015
The first residents have moved into their new homes at a stunning development on Barry Waterfront.
A new community is emerging at Persimmon Homes’ “exceptionally popular” Westhaven development of two, three and four bedroom homes.
Some of the new residents gathered together this week and received flowers and champagne from Persimmon Homes.
The purchasers have come from a range of backgrounds. Ronda Yang bought as an investment, Joshua Daniels was a first time buyer using Help to Buy Wales and Gary and Pamela Babbage utilised Persimmon Homes Home Change scheme.
Ronda said: “I was looking for an investment property and Westhaven was very reasonably priced. I liked the designs and it is a very nice area.”
Joshua said: “It’s really exciting to own my first house. Help to Buy Wales has helped me onto the ladder and the team at Persimmon Homes were fantastic in taking me through the application process.”
Pamela said: “We had a property to sell so Persimmon’s Home Change scheme really took the stress away. Persimmon arranged for the valuations and then found a buyer – without all of the agent fees and paperwork.
“We’re delighted to be amongst the first residents at Westhaven.”
Westhaven is made up of 138 plots. The houses went on sale in September and already more than 60 have been reserved. The team are aiming for 38 completions by the end of the month.
The three bed The Clayton style properties have proved to be particularly popular, with all nine already sold.
Nesta Bresner, who is sales advisor at Westhaven alongside Gareth Jenkins, said: “The development is going exceptionally well and it’s exciting to see the first residents unloading the vans and moving in.
“The two and three bed properties have been particularly successful.
“There is lots going on in the area, both now and in the future. It’s an ideal place to live or to invest.”
Westhaven is located alongside the waterfront of Barry with views over the channel, Sully Island, Flat Holm and Steep Holm islands. The development has easy access to Barry town centre and is a short drive from Penarth and Cardiff.
