First-time buyers Chen Ang and his wife are the first family to move into Silver Hill, a new development located in Crownhill off Tamerton Foliot Road.
The development is a partnership project between Plymouth Community Homes Regeneration (PCHR) and Halsall Homes which will see 38 homes built – 27 for private sale, six for shared ownership, and five which are available for affordable rent.
Silver Hill is the first development of open market homes for PCHR, a subsidiary company of Plymouth Community Homes, with Bradleys Estate Agents marketing and selling the private sale homes on behalf of the partnership.
The shared ownership homes in the scheme will be sold through PCH’s sales brand SO Living whilst the five affordable homes will be available to those on the local housing register.
Mr Ang first got in touch with Bradleys after seeing an advert for the development. During this time, sales representative from Bradleys guided them through different stages of the purchase of their first home all the way to completion, which has come at a perfect time as they prepare to welcome their first child.
As first-time buyers, the Ang family look forward to putting down roots in Plymouth and being the first family to join the Silver Hill community.
Mr Ang said: “It’s very exciting to be the first family that moves into Silver Hill as we’ve been waiting for our home to be completed. It feels like a dream come true, and we would like to see more people move into Silver Hill and form a small community here.
“My wife and I were so excited when we were told about the completion date after the exchange of contracts which means we are able to move in before our baby arrives.
“We already lived in Plymouth for more than a year after moving from Penzance. We both love the life in Plymouth, so we decided to buy a place we can call home here. We had been looking for a new build and we chose Silver Hill because of the location.
“It’s close to where we work and it’s not far from good schools, the hospital and local shops. Another reason is the surrounding area with the woods opposite so we’re close to nature.”
Craig Francis, Development Manager for PCHR, said: “It is great to see our first homes complete at Silver Hill on our first joint venture partnership with Halsall Homes; this is a real milestone for us and it’s a fantastic achievement.
“We are delighted to welcome our first new homeowners Mr and Mrs Ang. Silver Hill is a unique small development of 38 homes in a woodland setting so we can appreciate why they chose to buy this home and we wish them all the best for future.”
Andy Corp, Managing Director at Halsall Homes, said: “We are really excited to welcome the first homeowners to Silver Hill and are looking forward to welcoming more families over the coming months. It’s great to see how our homes have benefited Mr Ang and his family and we hope that this will be the case for all families here in this new neighbourhood.”
