Special Delivery Turns New House Into a Family Home

Posted 26 March 2019 by Helen Christie

When parents-to-be Henry and fiancée Maddy first saw their new home in the village of Stoke Gabriel, they knew it would be the perfect place to welcome their baby daughter into the world…

Less than three months after moving into their new house at Cavanna Homes’ Kings Orchard development, baby Olive was born, at home, on February 4 2019. 

Quantity surveyor Henry, 25, and 21-year-old nursery assistant Maddy, were the first couple to reserve a property at Kings Orchard. Maddy explains: “We heard about Cavanna Homes’ Kings Orchard development from my parents, who live just up the road. I grew up in Stoke Gabriel and was really keen to stay in the area, so Kings Orchard was a perfect spot for us.

“Once we found out that I was pregnant we wanted to buy our own home to start our family. We decided on having a homebirth, so finding a house that we were comfortable in was essential for us. We’re so happy with how everything went and we were able to move and settle in before our due date”.

Henry adds: “When we started looking for homes, the idea of a new build really appealed to us as the house was ready to move straight into and didn’t need any work doing. Maddy is great with interior design and was in her element, she’s done a brilliant job. 

“As first-time buyers we used the Help to Buy scheme and Kevyn, our sales advisor, was really helpful and answered all of our questions. He was quick at getting back to us and made the whole process simple, which is just what we needed. We were able to choose the fixtures, fittings and flooring that we wanted in the house and were given regular updates on how the build was going.

“Now that we’ve moved into our wonderful new home and welcomed Olive to our family, our next step is to plan our wedding for this September!”

Kings Orchard in the village of Stoke Gabriel, close to the River Dart, features 53 modern two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, with Totnes and Paignton a short drive away. The village has a football club, boating association, primary school and many local amenities.

Kevyn Dixon, Sales Advisor at Kings Orchard, says: “We have a stunning collection of new homes at our Kings Orchard development in Stoke Gabriel, a beautiful area with lots to explore. We would encourage anyone looking to move to the area to come and visit us for more information about the new homes available and the schemes we support and offer.

“Henry, Maddy and baby Olive are a fantastic addition to our growing neighbourhood and we wish them all the best in their new home”.

As well as providing 53 new open market and affordable homes, Cavanna Homes are contributing towards the local sport facilities, providing funding towards an additional classroom at Stoke Gabriel’s Primary School, and providing open green space.

The show home and marketing suite is open Thursday to Monday from 10am – 5pm. Prices start from £225,000.
