First customers move into their new homes at Oak View in Appleby Magna

It is great to see a new community taking shape as customers start moving into their new homes at Oak View in Appleby Magna by Mulberry Homes.

One of the first families to move into this new development of three, four and five bedroom homes was Sarah and Howard Bradley who used the Help to Buy scheme to purchase their new dream home.

“We never imagined living anywhere like this but thanks to Help to Buy we now live in a bespoke new home in a well-connected and beautiful village.  The homes here are really something special.  They are new builds providing you with everything you could want from a modern home but with plenty of character too. We love our large open plan kitchen with central island for sociable cooking and our warming log burner which is a real feature in the living room.  Mulberry Homes seems to be well ahead of the competition in terms of design and detail and Oak View makes a great home.

“The sales team have been a pleasure to deal with. They have talked us through everything and along with the recommended advisor, also helped with the Help to Buy application, which has made our mortgage much more affordable.”

The Help to Buy scheme enables buyers to purchase their home with just a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent is paid off as an equity loan, which remains interest free for five years.

Also among the first occupants to move into Oak View is Mr and Mrs Walker.  They were instantly impressed by the spacious contemporary living on offer and bought the three bedroom Nene which ticked all of their boxes.

“We were always looking to downsize but found that most new three bedroom homes were compromised when it came to living space and reluctantly we originally reserved a new four bedroom home at another development close by. We then visited Oak View having heard the Show Home had just opened for ideas on how to decorate and style our house and instead we fell in love with the spacious new homes, were very impressed with the exemplary service we received and knew instantly Oak View was where we wanted to live.

“The homes at Oak View really stand out from the pack.  Our new home benefits from a large open plan kitchen and living area, three very generous double bedrooms all paired with an en-suite or bathroom and we even have a double garage.  Our family visited us to stay over the Christmas period and they too all love our new home.  There is a real sense of arrival when you drive onto the development and there’s lots of green open space giving all the new homes an exclusive feel.  It’s a great place to live and it feels very exciting to be here from the start.

“Having lived in Tamworth for many years we decided we wanted to experience village life and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to move here.  Appleby Magna has everything we need, it’s very well located and accessible, there’s lots of country walks on the doorstep, it has its own post office and a great local!”

Darren Wright, Operations Director at Mulberry Homes said: “It is great to hear that both the design of our homes and the way we plan our developments are so well regarded. Our aim is always to design our developments to be interesting and great places to live.”
