Family makes 6,000-mile move – From Hong Kong to Nottinghamshire

30th August 2022
Redrow - News - East Midlands - Kenneth and Charis - Case Study

A family originally from Hong Kong has moved to Nottingham after choosing to prioritise their two daughter’s educations. 


Kenneth moved with his family 6,000 from his home country of Hong Kong to Newton Garden Village in Nottinghamshire.


Kenneth’s main reason for traveling to the UK was for his daughters’, Cloris, aged ten, and Carine, aged eight, educations.


He said: “My whole family have now migrated to the UK and the family who already lived here spoke very highly of the educational system in the UK.


“I believe moving to this country was the best move for my daughters as I hugely admire the UK’s educational system and my daughters can now study under a less stressful environment.”


Kenneth and his wife Charis were on the lookout for a new-build property which was close to good schools while having lots of green space in the surrounding area.


Kenneth said: “We knew we wanted a new-build property as it was easier for an overseas buyer and the warranty offer was attractive to us.


“I studied different developers and locations. Eventually I chose Redrow because of the stylish house design, good reputation and lovely environment of Newton Garden Village.


“Newton Garden Village is close to plenty of great schools as well as not being far from larger cities like Nottingham – so it was the perfect place for us.”


The family travelled to the UK in February 2022 and have now moved into the impressive four-bedroom Shrewsbury at Newton Garden Village.


The four-bedroom property is the perfect family home. On the ground floor, there is a spacious lounge and open-plan kitchen/dining area which makes gathering together as a family simple. Upstairs, four generously sized bedrooms cater for children and guests, with the main bedroom benefitting from an en-suite bathroom.


Kenneth commented: “Once I bought the property, we were all longing for the new house and life in the UK.


“The first day we came to the development, despite our tiredness after the long trip from Hong Kong, we were so excited as everything was beyond our expectations. The environment is lovely, and the development has so many open spaces. We were so happy.”


Kenneth and his family have now settled into their home and his daughters are attending a local primary school.


Kenneth also said: “The girls are thriving in their new school and are already loving their life in the UK.”


We are beginning to have significant interest from Hong Kong buyers like Kenneth with 13 reservations from Hong Kong buyers so far this year.


Ryan O’Sullivan Sales Director for East Midlands commented: “It is pleasure to welcome Kenneth and his family to our Newton Garden Village development in Nottinghamshire.”


“We are pleased to hear that the family have settled in well to their new home and that Cloris and Carine are enjoying their new school and we look forward to continuing to see the development grow into a thriving community.”


Located just a stone’s throw away from the popular market town of Bingham, with great transport links to Nottingham and nearby Leicester, Newton Garden Village offers the perfect mix of rural and town living, the development is perfect for first-time buyers, growing families and couples alike.
