Orbit Homes telehandler buys house at Mill View, Dereham that he helped to build

Orbit Homes employee, Harry, has bought a house on the Dereham development that he helped to build, as part of his role as telehandler driver.

Harry (29), his fiancée Rimini (26) and their 20-month-old son Archie, are now enjoying their brand-new three-bedroom family home, at Orbit Homes’ Mill View development.  Harry and his family had previously lived in a terraced house in Dereham, but after saving for a deposit on a larger house, they began looking at properties in the local area. They soon realised they didn’t need to look very far.

Harry explained: “My family and I have always lived in Dereham, but since having Archie, we needed a house with extra room. We chose Orbit Homes because it was so well priced in comparison to other housebuilders in the area, and their attention to detail really stood out.

“Having lived locally, we know that Mill View’s location is in a fantastic part of Dereham, close to all the schools and the town centre, so everything is in walking distance for us. It’s perfect for Rimini’s work and Archie’s nursery too.”

Mill View is an exciting collection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, located at the end of Greenfields Road, opposite the Dereham Windmill in Norfolk. The development is ideal for those looking to take their first step on to the property ladder, upsize their family home or downsize now their families have grown up.

Rimini added: “We picked out a three-bedroom property, the Ashley, because it was such good value for money especially with the amount of room you get. There are three generous-sized bedrooms, which can comfortably fit a double bed in each, and an additional bay window in the lounge, making it even more spacious. Our friends and family have fallen in love with our house, just as much as we have! Everything is brand-new and finished to such a high standard. And with new builds being so energy efficient, Mill View was a no-brainer when it comes to helping keep all of the cost-of-living prices down.”

 Harry continued: “Although I work on site, the sales team still provided Rimini and I with regular updates about the build progress of our new home. The sales team were always happy to help and ensure everything went as smoothly as possible. The buying process was very straight forward and if we were to ever move again in the future, we wouldn’t hesitate to buy another Orbit Homes property.”

 Mill View includes a brand-new all-inclusive specification, boasting integrated appliances and flooring throughout plus a landscaped front and turfed rear garden. Residences are attractively designed, thoroughly modern and built to an excellent standard.

 The current phase of the development is now over 90% sold, with prices starting from £275,000 for a three-bedroom detached home and from £337,500 for a four-bedroom detached home. Shared Ownership or Move Easy is also available on selected plots. For more information, visit:
