Customer Stories: Andrea’s story

Meet Andrea, a homeowner at our stunning hamlet in Coniston ~ The Sycamores

The feature that stands out the most to me is how comfortable our home is. The materials used in the construction have had a huge impact on the properties energy efficiency. Our underfloor heating wont be switched on until November and even then its bare minimum, and we hardly ever use our lovely wood burner!

Why did you want to make The Sycamores home?

We had seen the build quality in the Skipton Properties Harden development and thought the houses were stunning. We were very impressed with the site layout, choice of quality materials and the build finish itself, we then enquired where the next Skipton Property sites were going to be.

Did you know much about Skipton Properties before buying? If so, what was it about us that you liked?

We had previously spoken with Karen Douglas, as Sales Advisor, who gave us some information on various sites to take away with us. From here we started reviewing other sites, and the designs and finish continued to impress us.

What was it about the house that drew you to it?

The house we wanted, we thought, was out of our price range, however, our heart was set on The Sycamores. This was a popular choice, so we had to up our budget and this turned out to be the best thing to happen, we love our new home!  The views are fantastic and we get sunshine all day.  My son was very impressed returning from university to find his new bedroom, like the master, had an en-suite bathroom.  I’m not sure this is a mistake for us, as he isn’t in a rush to move out 😉

How was your experience overall? Any defining moments?

The process of buying a new house is always stressful however Karen, our Sales Advisor, made sure that the process moved forward with excellent communications.  We were kept informed almost weekly and when we were unable to visit the development we received progress photos instead.  We felt very much at ease through the whole process.

Talk to us about the day you moved in?

In the proceeding days communication flowed and Karen confirmed we were on target to move as planned.  We got the keys on 18th December 2020, which was a difficult time during the pandemic. That said, even though our furniture was in storage everything went to plan.  The home was cleaned by a professional team so moving in was made an easy and enjoyable process. The best Christmas present!
