THE first resident to move into her new home at Lincoln’s Home Grange can’t wait for more new friends to join her at the recently-opened development.

THE first resident to move into her new home at Lincoln’s Home Grange can’t wait for more new friends to join her at the recently-opened development.

Betty Davison was delighted to move into her new two-bedroom apartment at the £5.5million luxury scheme off Boultham Park Road.

Home Grange has been delivered by Keystone and Gusto Group, creating 36 luxury apartments exclusively for the over 55s.

Mrs Davison was one of a number of eager residents to reserve their home during the construction process, which was completed in March.

“I’ve been here over a week now and I absolutely love it,” said Mrs Davison as she was presented with a bouquet of flowers by the developers.

“I lost my husband four years ago and I was living alone in North Hykeham in a big house with a big garden and I wanted to plan my future.

“I first became aware of Home Grange on Mothering Sunday last year. The family were visiting for Sunday lunch and we took the grandchildren through to the park where we saw the signs advertising that they were building these beautiful apartments.

“It all went from there really. It’s such a good area, with all the facilities and the transport links that I need. I don’t drive anymore, so it was just perfect for me.

“I saw the plans for the apartment and what was on offer here and jumped at the chance. To now be settled in this lovely new home is fantastic – I certainly haven’t got any regrets at all.”

At a recent exclusive open event, prospective buyers jumped at the opportunity to see what the now-completed development has to offer. Over 30 people were taken on guided tours of the immaculately-appointed homes, spacious residents’ lounge and tranquil landscaped gardens.

More residents will be given the keys to their new homes throughout this month, with the on-site marketing suite now open for interested parties to find out more about the development.

Mrs Davison, who recently celebrated her 80th birthday, is looking forward to welcoming more neighbours into a community that means her new surroundings already feels like home.

She added: “I know that more and more residents will be moving in over the coming weeks and many of them are people I already know and call friends, so there’s going to be a real community here, which will be lovely.

“I can remain independent here, live the life I want, surrounded by friends and with security – it’s exactly what I wanted.

“My son has been to visit plenty of times to have a look around and he absolutely loves it. The whole family are very happy, in fact.”

Ian Jackson, Executive Director of Portfolio Investment at Longhurst Group – of which Keystone are part – said: “Home Grange is a development for the city of Lincoln to be proud of.

“It has provided a luxury, high-quality complex of immaculate apartments for residents to enjoy a happy, relaxing and fulfilled retirement.

“With over a third of the apartments being reserved off-plan and interest being shown in many of the remaining properties, we are delighted with the response received so far and that is testament to the hard work of both our fantastic sales team and appointed agents Pygott and Crone.

“It is a shining example of our fantastic, ongoing partnership with Gusto Group and we’d like thank both them and architects Studio-G Associates for helping to bring this project to fruition.”

Home Grange’s marketing suite is now open to the public between Tuesday and Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
