The Gills find their dream home at Suttle Gardens!

After a run of bad luck, a desire for a fresh home and a fresh start have brought a family of four to our Suttle Gardens development in Carlisle

Joanne Gill and her husband Simon are now proud to say they own one of our stunning 4-bedroom Arundel homes at Suttle Gardens. Since moving in back in the spring of 2018, the Gills have been full of praise for their new surroundings.

Joanne Gill expressed her personal delight over their new home, and shed some light on the journey they took to achieve it:

“We were actively looking to move and had been on the lookout for the kind of new build property that could cater for the varying needs of our family.  Our previous home had fallen victim to flooding twice in as many years and the heartache of going through it made us want to move for pastures new without leaving the area that we know and love. 

“Our son has some specific needs when it comes to the home environment and we were conscious that we needed to find somewhere that was private, quiet and enclosed without cutting ourselves off from the wider community and local residents. 

“The house we found was the Arundel.  As soon as we viewed the house and the detached plot of the house with the private garden we knew it would be the perfect home from which we could start again and set about buying the property.”

Unfortunately for the Gills, moving wasn’t quite plain sailing. A series of setbacks when selling their former property resulted in delays which almost cost them their dream home.

Thankfully, Joanne explains, Homes by Esh customer liaison manager Maureen Williams stepped in to help:

“Our buyer pulled out just two days before we were due to exchange which was a huge setback.  Luckily Maureen was able to take charge and went above and beyond the call of duty to keep the plot open for us and ensure that when our sale finally went through a number of weeks later, that the property we had set our hearts on was still available.

“Homes by Esh even helped us with the erection of a 6ft fence in the garden to ensure privacy for our son and I just couldn’t thank them and their team enough for everything they have done to make what has been a stressful process that little bit easier.”

Having finally gotten comfortable in their new surroundings, the Gills reflect on how the Arundel has transformed their lives, as the 4-bedroom home offers ample opportunity to relax and entertain in comfort and style:

“The build quality of Homes by Esh is exemplary,” says Joanne. “I could see when I first looked around that the construction was on a different level than others I had viewed and I’ve not been disappointed now that I’ve moved in.  The house and all the modern touches, such as the anthracite windows, really add to the overall feeling of high quality throughout the home. 

“We have been very happy here and I’m delighted to be able to call Suttle Gardens our home.”
