Sheffield Family Find Their Forever Home


A chance sighting of a new homes development in a leafy suburb of Sheffield led to one family finding their ‘forever’ home.

The Rodgers Family were looking for a new, second hand home, when they stumbled over Norton Green, a development by leading housebuilder Miller Homes and were instantly smitten with the homes on offer and the location.

“We had missed the opening weekend and were so disappointed to find that the first release of homes had all been sold,” said Helen Rodgers, 48, a primary school administration assistant. “However, we were able to put our name down on a waiting list and when the next releases were made available we were thrilled to be able to secure our new home.”

Helen, with her husband Simon, 49, a South Yorkshire fire officer and teenage sons Tom, 17 and Jack 13, chose a three bedroom ‘Derwent’ home and due to their early reservation were able to enjoy the process of seeing their new home constructed and choose their interior fittings such as kitchen, bathrooms and wall tiles, a main factor when they decided to choose a new build home over a pre-owned one.

“It was great to see our new home take shape and we were delighted that we could tailor our home to suit our needs including upgrading the kitchen and bathrooms to create a real ‘wow’ factor as well as choosing to have carpets, lighting and other fixtures and fittings so that all we had to do was unpack our boxes,” said Helen. “Pat, our sales adviser, kept us up to speed at every stage of the process and has been a real support, making it a fantastic time for us. We are still so happy with the entire Miller Homes experience.”

Sales at Norton Green continue to remain high but there are a selection of five bedroom homes currently available priced from £382,500 and four bed properties priced from £325,000.

Norton Green is a development of just 52 three, four and five bedroom homes.  It is located in the leafy suburb of Norton and lies just minutes from the city centre and only a few minutes’ walk to Graves Park which offers woodland walks, lakes, playgrounds and cafes, perfect for lazy weekends. It also lies close to several top golf courses and is a few minutes’ drive from major arterial routes allowing prospective residents to navigate their way around the city and beyond.

Norton Green is located on Matthews Lane, Norton, Sheffield, S8 8JS. The development is open 10.30am – 5.30pm from Thursday until Monday each week and the sales team can be contacted on 03331 225 894.

Miller Homes is due to open further new developments during 2016. Information can be found by visiting
