An NHS and Essential Worker discount has helped a family reserve a brand-new family home in Mansfield from developer Harron Homes at its Forest Reach development.

The housebuilder has been offering its special deal to those working on the front line of the pandemic. Claire Bradford is a peripatetic manager at Cygnet Health Care, covering sites across the East Midlands for inpatients requiring mental health care. Now, having reserved the four-bedroom detached ‘Windsor’ style property, she, her husband Alan and their children – Charlie, four, and Madeline, three – should be moving in later in the year.

“We started looking for a new home late last year,” Claire said. “The kids are growing up quickly so we’re starting to outgrow ours. Our current home is lacking a large kitchen/diner. We love the idea of being able to have proper family dinners at a table altogether. My little boy kept saying he wanted to have a chicken dinner at a dining table!”

“My husband drove past Forest Reach and liked the look of it, so we went to look around. We loved the show home. It had everything we needed, that coveted kitchen/diner, and space to convert the garage in the future. We reserved as soon as we could.”

“The house looks like a traditional family home. I liked the feel of it; it just felt homely. I could picture my family in it – the kids doing their homework in the evening or having breakfast in the morning. I could just picture our life there. We feel really lucky and grateful.”

She added: “The NHS key worker discount has been a huge bonus. It’s so far beyond what I was expecting and I think it’s brilliant.”

Natalie Griffiths, sales director for Harron Homes Midlands, commented: “We’re thrilled that Claire and her family have found a Harron Home that they love, and that we could make a gesture to thank her for all her hard work at this time. The discount is ongoing and could make a big difference for Essential Workers looking to purchase a new home.”

Harron Homes has recently extended its key workers offer, and will be offering its exclusive discount to all essential workers looking to purchase a home in 2020. Eligible customers may be entitled to £5,000 off the house price, as well as £1,000 worth of vouchers to use on home upgrades in Harron’s Excellence Range.

Forest Reach is located on Newlands Road in Forest Town, Mansfield and currently offers a number of four-bedroom homes priced from £234,995 to £298,995. Help to Buy, Part Exchange and the company’s own Homemover assistance scheme are available. The sales office open seven days a week, 10.30am to 5.30pm, with viewings by appointment only.
