Georgina is a 23-year-old HR Representative who snapped up a two-bed apartment in The Foundry (the former Lava Ignite on Hammerton Street) to mark her first step on the property ladder.

Georgina first viewed the apartments in November 2021 and quickly put down a reservation on her favourite one.

Whilst the conveyancing was in progress, she brought her family and measured up to choose furniture. Georgina then moved in during the spring of 2022 with the help of her mum.

Georgina invited us into her new home for a look around, we asked her what she liked about the property. She told us: “It’s so close to everything – a short walk to bars, shopping, job opportunities and not far from the motorway. I actually only came to look because it was the old Ignite building and I wanted to have a nosey. My parents used to party here and so did I. But I knew straight away when I came to view that it was the only place I wanted to live.”

“I love the building, the cobbled streets and little windows around. It’s like city living but in the nicest part of town. I’m a country girl so I like that it’s in a quiet spot. All my family are shocked I’ve actually moved out – they thought I would be at home forever! My apartment feels like a proper home, not just an apartment in a big building. I love it so much, I’m so happy here.”

We asked Georgina who she thinks The Foundry is ideal for: “We’ve got a nice little community, I knew there would be young people here, and then there’s families and older people. It’s ideal for anyone like me, in their 20s and wanting to make a life for themselves, become independent. Not those wanting to party all the time, those who want to make a really nice start in life.
