Life takes off for Morpeth home buyers

Life has, quite literally taken off for Jonathan and Grace Sharp, since they moved into their new Morpeth home.


Opening the door to their dream home coincided with new career opportunities for them both.


It was Grace’s switch to an area manager’s position with a major business infrastructure specialist that prompted the couple’s return to the North East.  But that also meant Jonathan had to leave his role as a personal trainer in Scotland.


However, so impressed was he by the beautiful woodland surroundings at Saint George, on the edge of the market town, that he was inspired to combine his passion for photography and remote-controlled gadgetry and set up his own drone filming venture.


The resulting footage was not only purchased by Saint George developer, Linden Homes, for use on its website but also helped Jonathan win other work for SkyDrone.


“Things could hardly have worked out better,” he says:  “We have found the perfect home in a magnificent setting but I have been able to turn my hobbies into a job.  We really do have an exciting new future opening up ahead of us.”


Having met while both working in the leisure sector in the North East, a series of promotions for Grace meant the couple moved north of the border and rented homes in several locations.


Returning to the North East they never intended to buy a home, or live at Saint George.  Grace explained:  “We were looking for somewhere to rent around Morpeth when a friend said we should go and take a look at the development.


“As soon as we drove up the leafy lane to the show homes and saw the rural setting, we knew it was a place we would just love to live.  We are very lucky to have such a lovely house in such a beautiful setting.”


Gemma Barry, Marketing Co-ordinator with Linden Homes, added:  “We are pleased that our development inspired Jonathan to literally launch huis business and we were delighted to become his first customer.  We wish him and Grace further success and happiness at Saint George.”
