Moving home can be a stressful time, particularly when at the last minute things don’t go according to plan!

For Sheffield family Anya Jozwiak, Matt Woodward and their son Arthur, their private house sale was going well until their buyer retracted their commitment to purchase just one week before completion.  The family was devastated after setting their heart on a brand new home in Gringley-on-the-Hill, near Doncaster, just a few miles away from Matt’s parents' home. 

Anya said: "We had set our hearts on our new home, everything was organised we were even planning how we would arrange our furniture, and it was so disheartening to see our dreams crumble.  Thankfully, the builders of our new home, Miller Homes, came to our rescue working out a Home Exchange proposal for us meaning things quickly got back on track.  And four weeks later, we moved in!"

Anya, 33, and Matt, 37, who both work in recruitment, have relocated from Sheffield to be closer to Matt's parents to help with childcare. They were particularly drawn to Minster View in Gringley-on-the-Hill for its stunning location and the quality of the homes on offer. 

Anya continued: "We had set our sights on a four bedroom 'Baldwin' home that would give us plenty of living space and also ample room to grow into.  And because of the team at Miller Homes we are now looking forward to many happy years here together and are thrilled that we were able to settle in time to celebrate our son's first birthday. The whole process of purchasing from Miller Homes has been a pleasure and the quality of their homes together with their friendly service has meant the whole experience since they stepped in has been straightforward and uncomplicated."

Home Exchange is available to current homeowners who could exchange their old home for a brand new Miller one, subject to terms and conditions by accepting a typical market price for their property.

Andrea Ainley, sales adviser, Miller Homes, said: "We were delighted to be able to help Anya and Matt proceed with their purchase and happy that they are in their lovely new home to celebrate an important milestone in their lives - their son's first birthday!  We wish them many happy years there together."

Minster View is located in the lovely village of Gringley-on-the-Hill where there is a small primary school, doctors surgery, local pub and church. It is a small and friendly village with a strong sense of community spirit - a perfect place to call home and to enjoy living in a beautiful part of the countryside. 

Further property details can be obtained by visiting the sales office which is open Thursday – Monday, 10.30am - 5.30pm and is located at West Wells Lane, DN10 4RB or by visiting the Miller Homes website. Alternatively, give the team a call for further information on 0808 250 6420.
