David Wilson Homes has welcomed its very first resident to its Sandlands development on Sandlands Way in Mansfield.

Peter Collins from Mansfield was able to increase his living space to embrace entertaining guests and hosting family gatherings at Sandlands in Mansfield, thanks to the housebuilder’s part exchange scheme.

Peter (55)previously lived in a three bedroom semi detached home just outside the town centre of Mansfield but became frustrated as being unable to entertain guests properly due to a lack of space. When David Wilson Homes opened their Sandlands development in the town, he was impressed by the quality of its homes and subsequently moved into a five bedroom detached Moorecroft home at the development on Sandlands Way.

Peter, a business owne, said: “One of the biggest drawbacks of living in my old home was that if I had friends or family over for dinner, I would be cooped up in the kitchen until dinner was served. The Moorcroft has a very spacious, open plan kitchen and dining area and now I get a lot more out of entertaining guests.

“The Moorecroft home has five well sized bedrooms and loads of great living space. A major reason why I wanted a home this size was so I am able to have my daughters and my grandchildren stay over whenever they want to.

“I’ve definitely been having more social gatherings since I moved and it’s a weight off my mind that if friends come over for drinks, there’s a spare bed if they need one!

“A few years ago I was going to build my own house as I have friends in the trade who could help me do this but there was actually no need because this house is exactly what I was after and with David Wilson Homes, I know it’s high quality.

“David Wilson’s part exchange took all of the hassle out of buying a new home too. They bought my old home from me, which meant that I didn’t have to wait to find a new buyer, which is great as I’m already hosting a gathering for friends and family on Bonfire Night and for Christmas too, so it’s really started to become the party house!

“Ian the site manager and Kim in the sales office can’t do enough to help me settle in - I’m very happy indeed.”

Sales Director Philip Lacey said: “We’re delighted that our part exchange scheme was able to help Peter, like so many others, move to his new dream home at Sandlands. We understand how stressful it can be moving home and this is just one of the ways which we can help to remove that pressure from customers, particularly when they have set their sights a new home!

“It sounds as though Peter’s new house has enabled him to spend more quality time with his family and friends - I wish him the best of luck in his new home.”

Sandlands, on Sandlands Way in Mansfield offers a range of four bedroom homes priced from £206,995.
