Family finds room to breathe at landmark development


They are loving the extra space at Wolsey Island


A Leicester couple and their young daughter say that they are loving the extra space available to them in their brand new home at Westleigh’s landmark Wolsey Island development in Leicester.

Jemma and Steve Lockwood (both 36) and their seven-year-old daughter Freya, reserved a two-bedroom Mitchell homestyle at the development and have been living there since June.

Jemma, who works in a local education team for the NHS, and Steve, a Service Adviser for Toyota, had previously lived for 12 years in an apartment in Leicester city centre but were keen to move to a house with more space.

“We saw Wolsey Island advertised and wanted to move here for the extra space and to have a garden, due in large part to Freya growing up quickly,” explains Jemma.

“We first visited the development in the New Year and reserved the Mitchell straight away.”

In order to reserve their home at Wolsey Island, Jemma and Steve used the Next Move scheme, through which Westleigh sold their apartment so that they could purchase their dream home at the development.

“We’ve had a great experience with Westleigh,” Jemma continues, “and everything has been really straightforward.”

Since moving in, the family has been enjoying their new life at Wolsey Island.

“Freya loves living here as there are other children for her to make friends with,” Jemma adds, “and we’re so close to the National Space Centre, which is one of her favourite places in Leicester.

“We also enjoy having more separation between the rooms as it’s nicer than the open-plan layout we had with the apartment and it’s much more suited to our family.

“Steve is able to walk to work and we’ve not had to move Freya to a different school. We’re now also in the catchment area for Rushey Mead Academy, which is rated ‘Outstanding’ and is regarded as one of the best schools in the country.

“The development itself is much quieter than where we were before – which is something that Freya noticed quickly – and it’s great to be a part of such a lovely community!”

Lisa Morris, New Homes Manager for Westleigh, said: “We are delighted to hear that Jemma, Steve and Freya are settling in so well to life at Wolsey Island.

“They are just some of the many happy buyers who have already found their dream home there, and with a range of homes still left to reserve, you too could do the same.

“If you want to be in with a chance of joining the existing residents at Wolsey Island, please get in touch without delay!”

There is currently a stunning selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes available to reserve at Wolsey Island, with prices starting from £199,950, £252,950 and £279,950 respectively.

What’s more, the gorgeous three-bedroom Corah showhome has recently opened its doors to prospective purchasers at the development, while the magnificent two-bedroom Mitchell showhome is also still available to view.
