Meet the Neighbours: Hannah at Middleton Waters


One year after moving into her Homes by Carlton home – The Croft at Middleton Waters – we were delighted to have Hannah (and her gorgeous puppy Olive) show us around. 


Hannah talked us through her favourite aspects of her home, how she’s finding living at Middleton Waters in Middleton St George, and how she found the Homes by Carlton buying experience.

Q: What is it like living at Middleton Waters?

Hannah: I’m really enjoying it, it’s lovely. It’s quite peaceful and I’ve got family in the village so they’re only a five minute walk away now which is really nice. It’s just a really great development and I love the house.


Q: How are you settling into village life?

Hannah: I love walking around the fishing pond and all the fields with the dog. I used to live in the village and then I moved and came back, so it’s nice seeing new additions to the village like Caffe Italissimo and The Oak Tree, and The Davenport has been refurbished since I was last here. We’ve also got a Sainsbury’s now, and I feel like you really don’t have to leave the village for anything you need.


Q: Is Middleton Waters in a good location for walking your puppy, Olive?

Hannah: Yes, it’s perfect if you’ve got a dog. There’s loads of dog walks and I’ve met a lot of new people while just walking the dog because so many people on the estate also have puppys. I also use a local dog walker from the village which is really handy.

Q: Have you met your neighbours?

Hannah: I have. I go to the quiz with one at the cricket club on a Sunday and there’s a nice sense of community.


Q: Why did you choose the 3-bedroom Croft?

Hannah: I like that the living room and kitchen/diner are dual aspect and span the full length of the house, both with double doors leading into the garden. The house is so bright and light and spacious, it’s great for having friends come to stay because there’s plenty of room. I’d looked at so many houses before I came to this one and it’s just perfect.


Q: Which is your favourite room in the house?

Hannah: The kitchen, definitely. And for me, after living in an open plan flat, it’s great to have a separate kitchen and living room now.

Q: How did you find out about Homes by Carlton?

Hannah: I stumbled across it really. I’d been looking around Darlington and it was my dad who mentioned coming to look at Middleton Waters. I looked online and then the next week came to see the house, then the week after I reserved. Everything just fell into place when I looked around here.


Q: How did you find Homes by Carlton's choices process?

Hannah: Really good. There were loads to choose from and most of the options were available to see in either of the showhomes and the local stockists had the bathroom tiles to view, so that was very useful.


Q: How did you find the Homes by Carlton customer journey?

Hannah: Sales Managers Cara and Laura were great at keeping in touch, so I felt like I knew what was going on at all times. Site Managers Ian and Jamie were also great and visited after I moved in to check things were OK. I have spoken to Beth (Customer Care Coordinator) a couple of times too and I’m happy that things are all sorted.


We’d like to say a huge thank you to Hannah for welcoming us into her home and taking the time to share her experience. It's always a pleasure to sit down with our residents.


Middleton Waters Phase 1 is all sold out, but Phase 2 is launching very soon.
