Pet friendly Vox is perfect for young couple… and their new puppy
According to a recent survey by the Pet Food Manufacturers' Association, 3.2 million households in the UK have acquired a pet since the start of the pandemic. For couple Melissa (21) and Andy (26) the chance of owning a dog made them want to move home.
Melissa comments, “We had been renting in the city centre of Manchester but had always wanted to own a pet. After discovering our landlord wouldn’t let us, we decided to start looking for a new property.
“We both work in retail for Jack and Jones, with my job based in the Trafford Centre and Andy in the Arndale Centre so part of the search was also to live nearer work and be a new build, but the main factor was somewhere pet friendly!
“During our search we discovered details about Vox in the Cornbrook area of Manchester and were really interested in looking at it, as it was pet friendly with no extra charges. We arranged a visit and as soon as we walked in, we knew straight away it was the right place.”
Andy takes up the story. “Dan, the letting manager took us around the show apartment and we were completely blown away by the quality and style of the development, I even said to Dan – what’s the catch! They were so accommodating about us having a pet and we loved the fact that the gym is included and there is also a residents lounge to be able to meet and get to know our neighbours. We worked out that for just an extra £50 a month, we could save on gym memberships and would probably end up going out far less to bars because we already have the residents lounge at the development.
“Our move into the development was so easy. They made us feel so welcome and settled straight away. We were introduced to the residents app where we could find out about events taking place and also contact other people if we had questions.”
Andy and Melissa moved into their one bedroom apartment at Vox at the start of April 2021 and their French Bull Weiner puppy Mocha, quickly joined them a few weeks later.
“Even with restrictions in place, the development is so warm and friendly, and we have been able to meet people and get to know them on dog walks. We already feel like we have made some really good friends in the space of six weeks and even reached out to a couple who already have a dog to help us walk Mocha on a Saturday when we are working. We are already great friends with them and go on regular walks together. ” Continues Melissa.
Andy says, “We initially have a one year tenancy but have already said we can’t see ourselves living anywhere else for a long time, and if we needed a larger property we would look to move within the development.
“We would 100% recommend living in a build to rent development like Vox. We didn’t really have that many friends when we lived in the city centre, but already we feel like we have made so many and things couldn’t get any better.”
