Newly-wed couple from Telford move into their dream home using Help to Buy


A couple from Leegomery in Telford purchased their dream home at Lovell Homes’ Principal Point development using the Government-backed Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme.

Cherry (28) and Stephen Evans (36) along with their pet Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog named Benson, recently moved into their new home at the popular development on Orleton Lane.  

Having married last September, the couple were keen find a home where they could spend the rest of their lives together and start a family of their own.

Cherry and Stephen purchased the three-bedroom Milton style home. The semi-detached house has a study to the ground floor which was a major selling point for the couple as Stephen frequently works from home and there was no need to sacrifice a bedroom for the workspace.

Previously renting privately in the area, Stephen and Cherry wanted somewhere they could decorate and call their own, without having to spend lots of time and money renovating. The clean finish they were after was also hard to find in pre-owned homes and the quality of a new-build was difficult to match.

Stephen, an operations manager at the Ministry of Defense, said: “This development was perfect for us because it has a good link to the M54 for myself and my wife to commute to work and we’re really nearby to family, friends and lots of amenities.

Cherry, a retail showroom sales manager at B&Q, added: “We visited numerous sites across Telford and picked lots of faults with most but Principal Point blew us away! The Milton style home exceeded our expectations and the rooms were so spacious. The team at Lovell were brilliant too, especially Dawn in the sales office who was always friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the flowers and hamper that we received on move in day – it was a lovely touch.”

Help to Buy is available on all homes at Principal Point, enabling buyers to get on or up the property ladder with a brand-new Lovell home with only a 5% deposit. The remainder is made up on a 75% mortgage and a 20% equity loan from the Government which is interest free for five years.

Current availability at Principal Point includes two-bedroom homes priced from £148,000, three-bedroom homes priced from £182,500 and four-bedroom homes priced from £249,950.
