Couple downsize with Barratt Homes in Thurcroft

Andrea and Mark Ratcliffe


After 17 years of marriage, Andrea and Mark Ratcliffe found their four-bedroom family home was too large for just the two of them, with their three adult children having flown the nest, so they began the search for a property where they could relax and enjoy quality time with one another.
 
The couple, both aged 52, are now the proud owners of a three-bedroom, semi-detached house at Barratt Homes’ The Hedgerows development in Thurcroft and can make the most of their time together in their new, ideal home with ample living space, modern design and in an excellent location, offering the most contemporary living comforts.
 
Speaking about choosing to purchase at The Hedgerows development, Andrea, a clinical support worker at Northern General, commented: “With our three children having grown up and moved out, we felt it was an ideal time to downsize. We first saw the The Hedgerows online and loved the style of the houses there and when we came to visit, it was the location and lay out that we knew was perfect for us. We looked around the Morpeth show home and fell in love with the house type - what really caught our attention was how bright the house was inside and I could really see myself living there.”
 
A delightful three bedroom home, The Morpeth offers Andrea and Mark a free flowing kitchen with breakfast area and a dining room with a full height glazed bay opening onto the garden. With a comfortable dual aspect lounge located downstairs and two double bedrooms with master en suite to the first floor, this home offers the couple everything they were looking for.
 
On the buying experience, Andrea continued:
“I can’t praise Joyce, the Sales Adviser at The Hedgrows, enough; she made the whole buying experience extremely smooth and was always on hand to answer any of our questions.”
 
Joyce Barrow, Sales Adviser at The Hedgerows, said: “It’s always amazing to help buyers find their ideal home and to offer them reassurance throughout the process. Andrea and Mark were nervous about moving from their family home, but I’m delighted we were able to help them find their perfect home at The Hedgerows for their new chapter, and I wish them all the best!”

The Hedgerows is an idyllic development, with plenty of green spaces and offers a village community atmosphere. Located in the village of Thurcroft, commuting to Rotherham or Sheffield is no issue due to its close links to the motorway. The last few homes are available to purchase from £159,995.
