With three children under the age of four, Lee and Lisette Croucher needed a low maintenance and future-proof home that offered more space for their growing family and was close to relatives for all-important help with childcare when mum returned to work.

Already living locally close to the football ground in Bury, they were delighted to discover Bellway’s Tudor Grange development on Bolton and Bury Road; a location that was closer to the in-laws and also within the catchment for great schools and a really good nursery.

They were among the first to visit when the properties were released for sale, and immediately fell in love with a four bedroom Oakwood detached home on a fabulous plot nestled in mature landscaping and in a semi-private location on the development.

With Lisette’s imminent return to work on the horizon, speed was of the essence to reserve and complete on their new home before applying for local schools and a place at their preferred nursery from their new address.

Understanding their concerns in securing their dream home quickly, Bellway’s sales advisor Neil suggested using Bellway’s Part Exchange scheme; an initiative where Bellway provides a fair offer for the purchaser’s existing home based on an independent valuation and ensures the existing property and new home are bought and sold in one easy, stress-free move.

Lee and Lisette were over the moon with the Part Exchange suggestion, their sale progressed swiftly and they are enjoying life in their new home which they have been in now for around two months.

Lee explains: “Family life is hectic with three young children but our new house is definitely somewhere that we can all relax and enjoy quality time together.  We love the space that the Oakwood offers; four good sized bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen and dining room where everyone can eat and play together, a separate lounge for those infrequent occasions we get to sit down alone as grown-ups and a garage accessed from the house.

“It’s also just short walk away from our preferred schools and nursery, and very close to our in-laws, who will be helping with pick up and drop off when Lisette goes back to work in the not-so-distant future.”

Lisette adds: “We’re so grateful to Neil for introducing us to Bellway’s Part Exchange scheme which provided us with a fast and hassle-free move.  Moving house can be a slow and agonising process and I would recommend Part Exchange to anyone who has set their sights on a specific plot and is looking to move quickly.”

Lee, Lisette and their children, are happily settled at Tudor Grange.  “With little ones, we spend a lot of time outside,” said Lisette, “The development is surrounded by fields and we have a beautiful reservoir that is just a short stroll from the house, so it’s a lovely lifestyle and ideal for all of us.”

Located on Bolton and Bury Road in Radcliffe, Tudor Grange is an attractive residential development with a range of three, four and bedroom homes from £329,995.
