Award-winning financial advisors Oviso work with Ginnis New Homes to come up with excellent downsizer package for Derbyshire development

A GARDEN centre voucher and your legal fees paid are just two of the fantastic incentives available to those who opt for Ginnis New Homes’ brand-new ‘Downsizer package’.

Aimed at existing home-owners looking to downsize or those wishing to retire to somewhere perhaps a little more peaceful, the package also includes expert advice from award-winning finance company Oviso.

The Derbyshire-based business have put together a special Retirement Interest Only mortgage bundle (RIO) which is designed to meet a number of important needs in retirement.

Matt Simpson, director of Oviso – who have offices in Derby and Belper – said: “Our RIO mortgage deal is suitable for a wide variety of clients. They can be retirement planners; those looking to fund lifestyle choices but who want to protect the equity in their property; equity releasers – clients who may still be working but who want to use RIO as a way to free up pre-retirement equity. Maybe they want to fund a holiday home or give grandchildren a helping hand in getting on the property ladder.

“RIO can also be useful to those who have come to the end of their Interest Only mortgage and are unable to repay the capital balance. Our friendly, knowledgeable experts can advise the client what is the best option available to them.”

Deer Park, a collection of 30 exclusive three and four-bedroom homes in Ripley, boasts an enviable semi-rural location.

The development is based just off Coach Road and provides views across the Amber Valley. It’s just minutes away from Sainsbury’s supermarket in Bridle Lane and a short drive into the centre of Ripley.

Each Deer Park home mixes modern living with traditional features, including high ceilings, period-style windows, open-plan kitchens, downstairs WCs and built-in storage space.

Since the development opened in late 2018, there has been a 50/50 split of first-time buyers and those wishing to downsize who have moved into Deer Park.

Susan King was one of the first to move into the development.

Her desire to travel - and spend more time with family and friends following the death of her husband – were two of the reasons why she decided to move to Deer Park.

And she couldn’t be happier. Ms King said: “We lived in a four-bedroom house and it was just too big for me and my dog, Moppett.

“I just needed a house that was big enough for me and Moppett; somewhere with a small but perfectly-formed garden that would be low maintenance. A place where family can stay over should they wish and somewhere I can host dinner parties.

“Deer Park is a lovely development, a smart development. The finish of the house – from the skirting boards to the coving in the hall – is all completed to a high standard.”

Darren Farnan, marketing manager at Deer Park, said: “The make-up of our homes suits the lifestyle desired for quiet, peaceful living.

“The location of Deer Park is perfect; we’re within walking distance of Sainsbury’s and there are some fantastic walks nearby. The Butterley reservoir and nature reserve is a 10-minute walk away from Deer Park and we’re close, too, to the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District.”

For a limited time, too, there are big reductions on selected properties and up to £12,000-worth of extras included.

The show home at Deer Park is open every Saturday. For further information on Deer Park’s three and four-bedroom homes, contact selling agents Boxall, Brown & Jones on 01773 880788, Home2Sell on 01773 512556 or visit
