Couple Celebrate New Bellway Home With Engagement

A young couple who have moved into a new Bellway home together has double the reason to celebrate after getting engaged.

James Baker, 22, and Stephanie Williams, 23, have been a couple for three years but wanted to experience living together before getting married. Now, after moving in together at Bellway Homes Wales’ Brookthorne Heath development in Llanishen, Cardiff, James has popped the question and the pair plan to wed in 2013.

Brookthorne Heath is located in the suburbs of Cardiff in the popular village of Llanishen. The development is in its final stage with four-bedroom family homes as well as one bedroom apartments still available.

James said: “Stephanie and I both work for a firm of solicitors in Cardiff where we met about four years ago and we got together about six months later. We knew that we wanted to get married but we didn’t want to get engaged until we had lived together. The great news is that we love living together and moving into the apartment is what we were waiting for.

“I planned everything, I decorated the apartment with candles and rose petals and proposed when Stephanie got home from work. She was shocked and did cry but she did say yes and we then went out for dinner at a restaurant on Caerphilly Mountain. My brother is getting married next year so we are planning our wedding for the year after.”

James and Stephanie live in a two-bedroom top floor apartment at Brookthorne Heath.

James continued: “We love the apartment, it is such nice quality and there is plenty of space. As we both work in the city centre, it was important to us that we could easily commute and Llanishen fits the bill perfectly. Brookthorne Heath is a good position to live because it’s close to the city centre and you can drive in or get the train in within 10 minutes. We get the best of both worlds as we are in a nice quiet village yet near to the city.

“Bellway has a high standard of building, finishing and completing homes and I’ve also been impressed with its customer care. We’re happy with everything so far, it’s the perfect first home for us.”

New homes on sale at Bellway’s community development Brookthorne Heath include the final four-bedroom family houses called the Chesterfield. With just two remaining, the Chesterfield offers contemporary living over three storeys. It also benefits from an integrated garage, a large open plan kitchen-diner, spacious lounge and en-suite to the master bedroom.

In addition, there are just five modern and stylish one-bedroom apartments still available at Brookthorne Heath, with open plan living spaces, fitted kitchens, parking and landscaped grounds.

Prices at Brookthorne Heath start from only £109,995 – or from just £93,496 on Bellway Home’s Sharp Start scheme where you can buy a new home for 85% of the price which includes a low deposit of just 5%. Bellway will loan purchasers the remaining 15% interest free for the first five years. The development has excellent bus and rail links, is close to all local amenities as well as the M4 motorway and is in a good school catchment area.

Denise Swift, sales manager at Bellway Homes Wales, said: “We are in the final phase of sales at Brookthorne Heath which has proved to be a popular community development in Cardiff.

“Purchasers have been attracted by how affordable it is to live in a stylish brand new home which has all the amenities of Llanishen village on the doorstep and yet is just 10 minutes to Cardiff city centre. As it is the final phase, Bellway is happy to be offering Sharp Start as well as part exchange on the remaining properties.”
