St Anne's Quarter - Making a house into a home
In January, Daisy, 27, moved into her new Orbit shared ownership home at St Anne’s Quarter in Norwich.
Daisy had previously lived in her countryside family home in Reepham, Norfolk, but after saving enough for a house deposit she began looking to re-locate closer to the city.
After looking at properties in Norwich city centre, Daisy chose to purchase a one-bedroom apartment at Orbit’s new flagship riverside development, St Anne’s Quarter.
St Anne’s is a much sought-after area of Norwich for those that are needing to commute. Travelling couldn’t be easier with bus stops, taxi ranks and Norwich Train station just a short walk away, making it easy for Daisy to commute to her job as a Digital Marketing Executive in Dereham.
Right from the outset, Daisy was impressed with Orbit’s customer service. The Sales Team supported Daisy throughout the whole process including providing recommendations for Mortgage Advisors and Solicitors.
As a solo buyer, having a relationship with Orbit’s Sales Team, especially her Sales Representative Emma, was hugely beneficial to Daisy. The team were happy to answer any questions or queries throughout the process and provided reassurance and advice every step of the way.
Talking about her fantastic Orbit experience, Daisy said: “As a first-time buyer, looking to purchase my first home felt really daunting. But Orbit was incredibly helpful from the start. “I asked lots of questions throughout the process and Orbit were so supportive the whole way through! The customer service I received was invaluable and I am so thankful for all the assistance in helping me purchase my first home.“I chose the St Anne’s development because it had a sense of community – it felt safe and secure. My apartment also came with a parking space, which is important to me as I commute to work by car. I would recommend Orbit to anyone who is a first-time buyer. I didn’t just feel like they were trying to sell me a property – they invested their time and effort into finding me a home!”
St Anne’s is a collection of stylish apartments, in a much sought-after area of Norwich due to its city centre location, access to shops, bars and restaurants and its short distance from Norwich Train Station, which is ideal for Daisy. Properties at St Anne’s are modern, light and airy, with many benefiting from terraces or balconies. This is what set Orbit’s property apart from others and was a big selling point for Daisy. St Anne’s Quarter includes parking with our available apartments, as well as communal terraces and gardens to enjoy.
Two-bedroom properties are available to purchase from £235,000 using the Government backed Help to Buy scheme. Properties are available to buy now for immediate occupation.
