Part Exchange sealed the deal for Paramedic Neil Cockerill and his family

With parents living in Rugeley, Paramedic, Neil Cockerill and his family really wanted to stay in the area they knew, but with a growing family they also needed to move to a larger four bedroom home.

“I work in Lichfield and my parents live in Rugeley, we felt the time was right to move and didn’t mind extending the mortgage a bit to get what we wanted. Eaton Lodge appealed for a number of reasons, firstly it is gated development which meant both my children had a safe environment in which to play and my wife and I liked the fact that there was only a small number of homes on the site.

“Rather than having the hassle of selling our old home we agreed a part exchange deal with Bellway, they offered us a very fair price for our old home and everything went through very quickly. It meant that we avoided the worry of losing the home that we wanted and saved us the cost of employing an estate agent, plus we could remain in our old home until our new home was ready.

“As our new home was still being built we were able to select tile finishes and Tina the sales advisor was very helpful in arranging some of the extra’s that we wanted adding to the house before we moved in.”

Neil and his family moved into a four bedroom ‘Desford’ home which provides nearly 1,300 sq ft of living space and comprises a large breakfasting kitchen, separate lounge and dining room plus a study and ground floor WC, the first floor comprises four good size bedrooms, a family bathroom and ensuite to the master bedroom.

Prices at Eaton Lodge start from £249,995, buyers can opt for a part exchange deal or alternatively use Bellway’s Express Mover Service where Bellway will agree with you a price for your old home and take over the selling process on your behalf at no extra cost.

Lying roughly midway between the towns of Stafford, Cannock, Lichfield, and Uttoxeter Rugeley is a typical Staffordshire market town. For commuters, there are two railway stations, Rugeley Town and Rugeley Trent Valley, which lie on the Chase Line connecting Stafford, Walsall, and Birmingham. Rugeley Trent Valley also lies on the West Coast Main Line.

The major roads into Rugeley are the A460 from Cannock, and the A51 Lichfield to Stone. A new eastern bypass was opened in 2007 and takes the A51 through traffic away from the attractive town centre.
