The Perfect Family Home

Miller Homes customer case study

Peter Haughton and his wife Libby, have recently bought and moved into a five bedroom home on Miller Homes’ The Potteries development located in Lancaster.

For Peter and Libby, the decision to buy a brand new home was not a difficult one.  They had a clear idea of the style and size of home they were looking for and although they spent a great deal of time looking at different options they were unable to find a home that offered them the additional space for a children’s playroom. As parents to Patrick and with another addition to the family on the way their ideal layout was none negotiable.

After consulting with Miller Homes they knew the five bedroom Thames housetype was perfect for them. They reserved the plot before the footings were even down and watched with sheer excitement as the property took shape.

Both Peter and Libby grew up in the Lancaster area and, after living in Manchester for nearly ten years, they felt they wanted to move closer to their family.  

The Potteries development is located less than ten minutes away from the University of Lancaster and offers a range of two to four bedroom homes. All homes are finished to Miller Homes’ award winning build standards and boast high quality fixtures and fittings as standard throughout.  The development offers easy access to the excellent schools and amenities as well as fantastic transport links across the North West.

Peter comments: “We have been very impressed by the care and attention Miller Homes has given us and the property, both before and after we moved in. The home was finished to an immaculate standard and any queries we’ve had have been addressed very quickly. The site team couldn’t have done enough for us to make sure we were happy with everything.

“We are thrilled with our new home and our 3-year-old son Patrick loves it so much he has taken to giving guests the grand tour when they come round to visit. We are really looking forward to creating lots of happy memories here over the years to come.”
