National TV spotlight on Wirral homes

A Wirral new homes development shone under a national spotlight this week when it was featured on Channel 4’s A Place in the Sun: Home or Away.

The programme, which pits three UK properties against three overseas, featured a three-bedroom show home at Redrow’s Dibbin Brook development, in Bromborough.

It was one of the options shown to this week’s featured homebuyers, Liverpool born couple Tony and Karin, who were choosing whether to spend their retirement on the Wirral, close to their family, or buy a new villa in southern Spain where Karin’s sister has already settled.

The couple viewed the three-bedroom Warwick show home at Dibbin Brook with presenter Laura Hamilton and chose it as their favourite property of the three ‘home’ choices. They loved the contemporary kitchen and dining room and the spacious lounge but their favourite room was the master bedroom with the en-suite they were looking for.

The programme was filmed back in March. Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “We’re very proud of the quality of our new homes at Dibbin Brook and were more than happy to welcome the film crew. We were delighted by how much Tony and Kerin liked the Warwick show home. It’s always a pleasure when we receive such positive feedback and for it to feature on national television is a bonus.”

Although the couple eventually chose Spain as their preferred location over the UK, the property at Dibbin Brook was described as their “clear favourite” in the Wirral.

Redrow has just three homes remaining for sale at Dibbin Brook so if homebuyers liked what they saw on TV, then they will need to act fast. Prices on the final three homes range from £215,995 to £269,995 and include a Warwick, like the one that featured on A Place in the Sun: Home or Away.
