Cardiff development crowned with Best Family Home title at First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards

Lovell’s Ashton two-bedroom house style took the Best Family Home title at the awards event, crowning it as one of the top-rated properties for purchasers taking their first step on to the housing ladder.

 Organised by leading property magazine First Time Buyer and the First Time Buyer Home Show, the prestigious awards are decided by members of the public themselves who vote for their choice from a shortlist selected by professional judges. Now in their ninth year, the much-acclaimed awards celebrate the most successful homes and services available to those buying their first home.

Lynda Clark, editor of First Time Buyer Magazine, comments: “Although the competition was high this year as the awards continue to grow, The Mill by Lovell Homes clearly impressed the judges with The Ashton. An ideal home for a family starting out on the property ladder, this property ticks all the boxes.  As well as offering excellent design features and a great layout, this property is ideally located and lends itself well to family life. Many congratulations to the whole team for the work they do to support growing families into homeownership.”

Lovell regional managing director Kate Rees says: “This is a fantastic accolade for The Mill and our Ashton house style which has brought the premium lifestyle offered at the development within reach of first-time purchasers, enabling them to afford a high-quality family home just a couple of miles from Cardiff’s buzzing city centre. Everyone in the project team and partnership is extremely proud of the attractive community taking shape at The Mill and the way that the development is helping people who might otherwise be priced out in such a desirable location. It’s particularly pleasing that members of the public have recognised how special this scheme is by voting for us.”

A range of one- and two-bedroom apartments are currently available at The Mill, with one-bedroom homes starting from £138,000 and two-bedroom properties from £172,000. Three-bedroom houses start from £249,500 and four-beds from £375,000. Just one three- bedroom Aspen house style – one of the largest homes at the development – is available at £299,995. The next release of Ashton house styles will be in May.

The Mill was also shortlisted in the Best Urban Regeneration Project category of the First Time Buyer Reader’s Awards, recognising the major investment and community support associated with the development. The project has delivered extensive job and training opportunities as well as initiatives with local schools and community organisations.

The show homes and marketing suite are open seven days a week, from 10am to 5pm at The Mill, Canton, Cardiff CF11 8DH. Alternatively, to find out more, please contact the Lovell sales team on 02920 606 766 or go to
