Hannah and Callum's story


After visiting their local Gleeson development and viewing a number of show homes, Hannah and Callum instantly knew the 4-bedroom, detached Longford was the home for them. Their chosen plot came with so much internal space to grow as a family, as well as a drive and a large rear garden, they truly feel like they have hit the jackpot! The couple also made use of the Gleeson optional extras range and opted for electricity in the garage - Callum has a passion for cars and owns a Classic Mini, which he has transformed and uses the garage as a workshop and home for his hobby!

Hannah and Callum found the process of buying their first home with Gleeson very simple and easy, and are now enjoying creating memories in their new home and making friends with others on the development. Most importantly, the couple love that they can still afford to go on holiday and carry on doing what they love, despite being homeowners, with a trip to Disney World Florida booked for later this year!

Hannah said: “We originally didn’t want to buy a new build ,, due to the preconceptions of the them being small, however after visiting our Gleeson development our minds were quickly changed! We love the location of our site and how peaceful it is, it isn’t over populated like other new build developments.

“After looking at a few of the three bedroom homes we realised we wanted a bit more space, especially in the kitchen area, which is when we discovered the Longford house style and instantly fell in love! We just loved the spacious kitchen and the benefit of a having a separate utility room, along with this and all the spacious bedrooms, it was a perfect combination to help form our forever home and such good value.

“Since moving in and having our own space we are now enjoying being the hosts, inviting our friends and families around for meals and making special memories, which wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Gleeson!”
