Rob and Faye's story

Rob and Faye are loving the extra space in their new four-bedroom home

Moved in: 2023
Development: Cherry Meadow

Living in luxury

Moving into a four-bedroom detached house has given Faye Morrall and Rob Bostock, both 32, the chance to make the most of all that space – with a room devoted entirely to clothes and shoes, and plans for a gym in the garage.

They both previously owned two-bedroom properties – Rob in an end-of-terrace house in Brailsford and Faye in a maisonette the other side of Hatton – and the extra room has given them the space to spread out.

Faye says: “I’ve got a dressing room now – an entire room for clothes and shoes. It’s always been something I wanted to have – all that space of a walk-in wardrobe. I love it.”

An abundance of space

For Rob, it is the first time he has had a garage and he has plans to turn the space into a gym. Other benefits of the Dunham house-type they’ve chosen are the utility room, the abundance of storage space, and the dimensions of the rooms.

“We were impressed with this house-type,” said Rob. “It’s got big rooms that are quite generous. Even what you might call the box room, you could still fit a double bed in it. Before this, we were living between our two houses, and we knew we wanted to live together, so at the start of last year we went to look at show-homes. Cherry Meadow is up the road from where Faye lived so we went to look around and this house ticked every box.”

We were impressed... This house ticked every box."

A much-improved work environment

Since they’ve moved in, their work life is easier, as Rob, whose workplace is based in Rocester, has a more straight-forward drive to work because their home is within easy reach of the A50.

Meanwhile, Faye, an HR advisor, has an office in one of the bedrooms, which is convenient when she is working from home. Having dedicated space for work also means that, when she logs off at the end of the working day, Faye can shut the door on her workspace. In her previous home she was working at the kitchen table, which was far from satisfactory.

The perfect place to call home

Next on the couple’s agenda is getting the garden ready for the sunnier months; they both want to get outdoors as much as possible when the weather is nice. Rob said: "We will put a patio where the sun hits and put some grass down. It will be nice to do some social things there in the summer."

With Faye’s parents living a few miles away, Uttoxeter and Derby around 10 miles from home, and plenty of shops and cafes within walking distance, the couple have everything they need within easy reach.
