Couple find their ‘forever home’ with Westleigh

Posted 20 July 2016 by Helen Christie

A couple who had been searching for a new property in South Leicestershire for 18 months have found what they have christened their ‘forever home’...

Christopher and Holly Fox, both 32, were originally looking for an older property with period features, but after spotting the exclusive ‘Hollingworth’ style new build house online, a five-bedroom house at Westleigh’s Hardy’s Yard development in Cosby, Christopher immediately arranged a visit with Westleigh’s sales advisers.

Christopher, who grew up in West Sussex and works as a test manager in Wiltshire, says: “When I saw the house online I knew it was going to be something special. It wasn’t the type of property we thought we’d end up with but the layout and interior of the house completely won us over and it was just perfect for us.

“As soon as we stepped foot in the door we knew it was going to be the forever home we were looking for. It’s in a fantastic location, Cosby is such a beautiful setting and we’re close to so many pubs and restaurants which is ideal for us.”

Christopher and Holly were previously living in nearby Countesthorpe and wanted to stay close to South Leicestershire.

Christopher adds: “Westleigh were really supportive when we purchased our home and did everything they could to ensure it was an easy process for us.

“We had already planned to take a 13 week trip travelling across Europe and parts of South East Asia and the sales advisers helped make that possible for us by staying loyal to our reservation until we returned.”

Robert Orr, sales and marketing manager at Westleigh, comments: “We are delighted Christopher and Holly chose to make their home in Cosby and hope they will be happy here for a long time. Cosby is a thriving village with so much to offer which is one of the reasons why this development has proved hugely popular. For anyone interested in moving to the South Leicestershire area, we would encourage you to visit our brand new developments situated close by in sought-after areas, Countesthorpe and Narborough.”
