‘Readymade’ Home Perfect Option For New Parents

Posted 12 November 2020 by Keith Osborne

A house-hunting couple in Lancashire purchased a home that was already complete, to ensure a swift and hassle-free move...

With a baby on the way, James Crossley and his partner Lisa Gornell needed a home of their own as soon as possible and thanks to Redrow’s ‘Readymade’ homes, they are now settling in at The Grange at Yew Tree Park in Burscough, Lancashire.

It’s been a whirlwind few months for the couple. After making the decision to move in the new year, they temporarily put their plans on hold due to lockdown, before welcoming baby Max in June.

The couple had always wanted to live in a Redrow home and, after restarting their search shortly after Max’s arrival, they were over the moon to discover there was a Readymade home available at The Grange, built and waiting for them to move in to.

Readymade homes are ideal for anyone who needs a quick move. They also come with quality finishes and superb interior specification, all selected by Redrow’s expert designers.

Sales consultant James said: “We’d lived in an apartment in Altrincham for the last two years but when we found out we were having a baby we knew we wanted to move and be closer to family. Lisa’s family live in Ormskirk so The Grange at Yew Tree Park seemed like the perfect location for us.”

“The fact that we bought a Readymade home fitted in perfectly with our timeframe of needing to move as soon as possible. The home also came with great extras such as flooring, turf and upgrades to the kitchen that were all done and dusted before we moved in. We literally had to move furniture in and that’s it.”

The couple chose a four-bedroom ‘Oxford’, giving the young family plenty of room to grow into. They used the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, which meant they could secure their home with just a 5% deposit.

“We can’t wait to fully settle in. Burscough is an up and coming area so it’ll be great that we can walk into the village with the baby and make use of the local shops and restaurants. Plus, my job can take me all over Lancashire so it’s good that we have easy access to motorways.”
