Melissa and Mikey make the move to Barton Quarter

Offering a fabulous new build home they could personalise to their own taste, and close to the beautiful open green space at Rivington Pike, Bellway’s Barton Quarter development in Horwich ticks all the boxes for Mikey, Melissa and their cute pug Winston.

With their roots in Lancashire and Mikey owning a successful gym in Darwin, it was important to stay local, and Barton Quarter allowed the couple to purchase the home of their dreams in a superb location that was well connected for work and leisure while also remaining close to family and friends in Bolton.

Right from the outset, Melissa and Mikey decided that they wanted to buy with Bellway. After visiting a friend’s new Bellway home in Bury and hearing great things about the company’s build quality, customer service and specification, they agreed that Bellway not only looked the best but had a superb reputation and were delighted to discover the Barton Quarter development in Horwich.

Liaising with Cath and Kerry in the sales office, the couple reviewed the options and settled on a three bedroom semi-detached Lambeth house type. Offering a wonderful open-plan kitchen dining area with French doors to the rear garden, separate living room and useful cloakroom to the ground floor, plus three good sized bedrooms to the first floor including master bedroom with en suite, it offered plenty of flexible space to work, relax and play.

“We love our new home and couldn’t be happier,” said Melissa, “Being able to personalise it was something that we were really looking forward to, and Cath and Kerry were so easy to work with during this process, helping us with our choices and options.

“We also really love the location, it’s perfect for us and Winston. We’re close to family and friends in Bolton and Westhoughton, just a short drive from Mikey’s gym in Darwin and within a few minutes of Rivington Pike for long dog walks.

“The layout of the house is also perfect; we love our master bedroom suite, have made the second bedroom into a guest room and the third bedroom into a home office. I’m still mainly working from home and it allows me to keep my laptop and paperwork out of our living space and to close the door on it at the end of the day. The garden is great, Winston definitely approves, and it’s so handy having a downstairs loo when entertaining,” she said.

Mikey and Melissa have definitely given their new home the personal touch inside and out adding beautiful new flooring and Venetian plaster to the interior and have completed their dream garden with artificial grass, slate patio tiles, a painted fence, barbecue and fire pit.

Full of praise for both the sales and build teams at Barton Quarter, Mikey and Melissa have been impressed from start to finish with their home purchase.

“I work in sales,” said Melissa, “So am fairly hard to please, but can also spot great service when I see it and I can’t fault Bellway. Everyone has been so helpful from the amazing support we have received from Cath and Kerry to site manager Dave who always gives us a friendly wave, they can’t do enough for you and we would one hundred per cent recommend them.”

While homes at Barton Quarter are all now reserved, Bellway has just commenced work on another beautiful new development just five minutes’ drive away in Lostock, Bolton. Known as Hazel Fold, the development offers two, three and four bedroom homes and is perfect for first time buyers and growing families with a three bedroom Thespian currently on sale from £269,995. Selling fast, showhomes are expected in Autumn 2021.
