First customers move onto Orbit’s brand-new Mill View development in Dereham

Set in the thriving town of Dereham, often labelled as the “Heart of Norfolk” due to its central location, Mill View is a brand-new collection of two, three, four- and five-bedroom homes. The idyllic semi-rural location lies at the heart of a growing and thriving community and is perfectly positioned for families, first-time buyers and young professionals.

Mill View is Orbit’s first development in Dereham and has been in high demand since its official launch in January this year. Here, David and Gemma talk about their positive Orbit experience after becoming the first customers to move into one of the brand-new Mill View homes…

On 26th March, David (37) and Gemma (36) became the first customers to move onto Orbit’s brand-new Mill View development in Norfolk.

Having previously lived in a three-bedroom semi-detached house in Dereham with their two daughters, the family decided to up-size and began researching local developments. After looking at properties in the local area, they chose a four-bedroom home at Orbit’s Mill View.

David and Gemma were one of the first customers to reserve a plot at the new development, after the official launch in January. Homes are available to purchase outright, with the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme available, or through Shared Ownership on selected plots.

Commenting on why they chose the development, Gemma said: “We picked Mill View because of its great location. Being opposite Dereham Windmill has been amazing and the main reason we chose our plot! The size of our new home is ideal, and the interior is bright and spacious. We also have a big driveway and double garage, so plenty of parking when we have visitors. As a family, we have also spent more time outdoors in our lovely big garden, which is something you don’t always see with new builds. I couldn’t be prouder of our perfect Orbit home!”

Talking about their families’ excellent Orbit experience, David added: “Orbit’s customer service has been amazing. The Sales Team kept us up to date throughout the whole process and were always happy to help with any questions or queries we had, no matter how big or small. As a family, we just want to say thank you to Orbit for helping us secure our dream home – from start to finish everyone has been so friendly, kind and caring. I would recommend Orbit whole heartedly and I can’t wait to start making amazing memories with my family and friends.”
