A Northamptonshire woman is celebrating after a Government scheme enabled her to buy the bespoke house of her dreams.
Marie Hayler accessed the Help to Buy scheme to purchase her ‘forever home’ at Lime Tree Gardens in Kingsthorpe.
Claire Dearsley, head of sales at Persimmon Homes Midlands, said: “Anyone using Help to Buy can get an equity loan from the Government for 20 per cent of the purchase price, meaning they only need to raise a five per cent deposit.”
For Marie, this brought her ideal home within budget, as the 39-year-old explained: “Lime Tree Gardens was in the right place for my work in St James’s and friends living nearby, and I had a wish list for the perfect house – detached, three bedrooms and a garage.
“The Rufford style house ticked every box, and being able to use Help to Buy meant I could have what I truly wanted.
“I had already sold my previous property when I reserved the house. It was my Christmas present to myself! It was great to be able to have the house fitted with my choice of kitchen, tiles and Amtico flooring, making it exactly as I wanted it. It feels really special – my forever home.”
Since moving in, Marie has totally transformed the garden with landscaping, raised beds and a patio, tackling all the work herself.
Claire Dearsley added: “We are always thrilled to help people into the home of their dreams, and we wish Marie every happiness with her home and garden.
