New house means no more rent for Northampton PE teacher Jude

A Northampton PE teacher has got back onto the property ladder after nearly 12 months renting.
Jude Stone had been renting a home in the area since December last year and was keen to buy a house as soon as possible.
So for Jude, a new home at Ecton Brook Place in Northampton brings with it the promise of a new start.
The PE teacher wanted a new home that she could move into this summer, with an easy commute to the primary school she works in, and large enough that her son Dan, 21, could stay with her when returning home from university.
The Mayne style home at Ecton Brook Place ticked every box.
Jude said: “I initially went to visit another Westleigh development in Northampton, Butterfields on Booth Lane South. After they mentioned the development in Ecton Brook, I looked into my options there and found a home that really suited my needs.
“Having three bedrooms is great because it means that Dan can have his own room here and I also have a home office, so the extra space is really useful. The lounge is a good size and the kitchen is beautiful.
“It’s also very close to a number of my friends and to the gym where I have a membership, so I wanted to remain in this area.”
The appeal of a newly-built home was also an important factor for Jude.
“I’ve always lived in newly-built homes and wanted to find one on this occasion. The reassurance of a National House Building Council Buildmark Warranty on my home for 10 years means I’m protected against financial nasty surprises that might crop up in an older home.
“I bought my home off plan which also gave me the chance to have an input into some of the features of my finished home. That meant it felt like it was truly my home from the outset. It’s nice to have a home of my own that I can invite my friends round to visit, and Dan loves it too.
“The staff at Ecton Brook Place have been really helpful and supportive. They were quick to respond to any queries I had. I’d definitely recommend a Westleigh home to anyone who’s looking for a new property.”
Lisa Morris, new homes manager at Westleigh, added: “We were so pleased that she was able to find a home from our selection at Ecton Brook Place and Butterfields that had everything she was looking for.”
There is one remaining property available at Ecton Brook Place, a three bedroom home, priced at £235,000, and a few homes available at Butterfields on Booth Lane South. Call 0330 002 0475 for further details.
