Penistone has always been home to Lynne, so it was a no brainer that this would be the place she would buy her own home. Living in Penistone meant that Lynne would live close to her family and the rural location offers a great range of walking routes nearby. Add in easy access to public transport and it’s clear as to why Lairds Way caught Lynne’s eye.

“Because I lived nearby, I saw the signs go up before any of the houses were built and kept up to date with new releases.”

Lairds Way is a small and exclusive development built with the idea of a small community growing within the development. “I was drawn to the development because of the look of the houses. They look stunning! I love that the development is small and exclusive, it really does have a homely feel.”

Penistone Railway Station is ideally located just 2 minutes away from Lairds Way, just off Sheffield Road and set above the River Don. “The location is great for me, with the train station next door I can hop on the train to Leeds or Sheffield easily! It’s great for my dog too, he loves the Transpennine Trail and we can get to that in a matter of minutes. I’m only 10 minutes away from my family as well, so this house really couldn’t get much better.”

When the Loxely, a classic 2 bedroom home became available Lynne reserved straight away. The spacious 2 bedroom home was perfect for her with a good sized garden and nearby walking routes for Buzz, her dog.

Lynne used the Shared Ownership scheme to purchase her home. The Shared Ownership scheme allows you to buy a share of a property and buy more shares in stages.

“I wouldn’t have been able to buy this house without Shared Ownership. The process of using Shared Ownership was straight forward, I filled in the application form and in no time I was approved, my deposit was down and I was looking for furniture for my new home!”

We aim to give our customers the smoothest house-buying journey we possibly can. Our team are on hand for all our customers to answer any questions or give advice and we’re happy that Lynne agreed! “Space Homes give such a personal experience. Amy, the sales negotiator helped me throughout my journey and answered my questions quickly. I would definitely recommend them!”

After living there for the past month, Lynne is happily settled into her brand new home. “I love everything about my new place. I love the size of the bedrooms, compared to the new build home I lived in before, they’re a really good size! Space Homes have been great. They are friendly, personable and I am in love with my new home!”
