Muse Development’s The Residence in Doncaster has proven the perfect place to put down roots for three generations of one Doncaster family, who are amongst the first buyers to move into a brand new property at the developer’s popular Lakeside scheme.

Assessment officer Angela Booth (59) and daughter Claire Churchill (42), were impressed with the high quality of homes at Muse’s Doncaster town centre development, The Gables, having visited the home of Angela’s son Chris, who purchased a two bed property in March 2015. The mother and daughter duo were looking to buy a home they could in live together along with Claire’s six year old son Alfie, and jumped at the chance to purchase a family home at Muse’s second Doncaster development, The Residence, which launched in June.

The family set their sights on a three bed home ‘Lysander’ home which offers open-plan living space; fully fitted kitchen; two bathrooms and a downstairs WC as well as gardens and private parking. Angela and Claire used the government-backed equity loan scheme, Help to Buy, to secure their new home in this sought-after location with a just 5 % deposit.

Commented Angela: “We love that the house, and whole development, is so close to the lake which is brilliant for walks and getting out and about. Our home is big enough to give us plenty of room to live together whilst also having our own space. ”

The winning combination of thoughtful design, beautiful craftsmanship and a stunning waterside location have resonated with local buyers who have flocked to the Lakeside development, with 16 properties snapped up.

Comments Hollie Reynolds, sales and marketing manager at Muse: “It’s great to see the first home-owners moving in and creating a community here. The feedback we’ve had so far is that our residents just love the location; the beautiful lakeside scenery and parks close by, as well as restaurants, a cinema and shops within walking distance, not to mention Lakeside Village and Doncaster Dome just down the road.”

The Residence, which features a charming collection of 51 luxury two, three and four bedroom homes at the edge of more than 50 acres of lake, has attracted interested from a mix of buyers; with first-time buyers, second steppers, parent purchasers and investors amongst the first to secure a home here.
