Double The Space For The Cooper Family

It’s amazing how quickly children can change your housing needs.

Ben and Joanna Cooper have moved to a new home with their two boys, aged two and six, after outgrowing their previous property.

Ben, 27, is a project manager for Space Group and Joanna, 36 is a restaurant manager for Brasserie Blanc in Cheltenham.

The family bought a four bedroom house at Linden Homes’ Perrybrook development in Brockworth. They previously lived in Coopers Edge in a two bedroom property but space was tight and they needed more room for their growing family. Having sold their home quickly, they made the savvy move to live with parents to make house-hunting easier.

Commenting on their experience, Ben said: “Our old house was far too small, we were bursting at the seams and definitely needed a larger property! We weren’t specifically looking for a new build but our roles changed and someone we knew suggested we look at the Linden Homes development. We fell in love with a four bedroom Mylne home and reserved quickly!

“The location is fantastic for us, it’s close to the children’s nursery and school, as well as our places of work. The development is also near lots of fields so it feels very tranquil and our home is in a lovely quiet spot.

“By living with family for a few months, we managed to save quite a bit before we moved which helped enormously.

“We are so happy with our new home, it’s double the size of our previous house and it’s really transformed how we live ?" as clichéd as that sounds!

“We have time and space to spend with the children, and we love that everything has been done so the weekends aren’t full of DIY jobs. We have a gorgeous south-facing garden with a hot tub, the kitchen is really big and there’s plenty of space to entertain, which is just what we wanted. It’s a really sociable house.

“The whole process was very smooth and Dan, the sales consultant, was brilliant. He was really easy to talk to, responded to us quickly and understood exactly what we wanted. Matt and Phil on site were fantastic too; we’ve been really impressed with the whole team and the quality of the house. We’re a busy young family and it’s been wonderful to set down roots and to finally feel settled with room to grow.”

Area sales and marketing director, Natasha Palmer said: “We’re thrilled Ben, Joanna and their boys are happy in their new home. When you’re pushed for space it can make home life very difficult so it’s wonderful to hear they’re all settled in their new home and ready for the summer in their garden! We’re delighted for them.”

Perrybrook features a beautiful collection of three and four bedroom new homes. When complete, the development will provide 225 homes, as well as a children’s play park and a community orchard.
