A South Yorkshire couple are celebrating after receiving the keys to their new home.

Julie Morgan and her partner, Trevor Gibbs are delighted to have moved into their new two-bedroom home at Keepmoat’s Amaranthus development in Wincobank, Sheffield.

The development has been so popular that Keepmoat has just unveiled a new phase of two and three-bedroom homes, which are ideal for families, professionals and first time buyers.

Julie and Trevor have lived in their three-bedroom home in Shirecliffe, Sheffield for eight years but their families have grown up and moved on. They decided to downsize and are the first buyers on the new phase at Amaranthus.

Julie, aged 54, said: “We are thrilled to receive the keys to our new home and are just delighted to have moved in. We specifically chose this development due to its fantastic location but also the quality and range of homes available. Everybody is really happy and friendly and it’s just a nice place to live.”

Julie, a clinical support worker at the nearby Northern General Hospital, and Trevor, who is retired, used Keepmoat’s Easy Key service.

Easy Key helps new home buyers to buy and sell their properties and in Julie and Trevor’s experience, everything was completed within five weeks of signing the paperwork.

Julie said: “I have already highly recommended this service to one of my friends who has also just bought a new home here at Amaranthus and I am looking forward to being neighbours with them.”

Julie and Trevor have moved into a two-bedroom Beech home which included brand new carpets throughout, fully fitted bathroom and a fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. It also includes a ten-year warranty.

Prices for a two-bedroom Beech home start at £91,996 on FirstBuy, a Government-supported shared equity scheme through which buyers only need to initially fund 80% of the asking price, with a 20% equity loan funded by Keepmoat and the Government making up the rest.

The Birch, Elm, Ivy, Hazel and Pine properties all offer three bedrooms and range in price from £95,996 to £103,596, all on FirstBuy.
