William and Brenda Griffiths have just purchased their second property on our Buntingford based development, The Maples. The couple first purchased at The Maples off-plan and moved in during September 2017, but a change in circumstance saw them upsize just two years later.
William commented, “We had been living in Cambridge for the last ten years but had decided to start looking for a new home closer to our family. A new build seemed like it would be easily manageable, and we were attracted to Redrow as we liked the style of the homes. They look traditional from the outside, with pitched roofs and porches.
“We first looked at Redrow’s homes by visiting a site in Cambridge, as it was close to where we were living. They had a show home of the Cambridge house type that we chose to purchase at The Maples too.”
Just over a year after William and Brenda purchased their new home, a change in family circumstances meant they needed some additional space and they decided to look close to home.
William continued, “Our son was going to move back in with us and we decided that it would be nice to give him, and us, a bit of space. We really liked life at The Maples though, it was really easy to see our daughter and the grandchildren and the Redrow home suited us well. So, we decided to see if Redrow had any other homes available that we could move to.
“Fortunately, they still had a few homes remaining and one of them was a three-storey Highgate, which was ideal as it provided our son with an entire top floor and en-suite bathroom. The home was ready to move into, but Redrow was able to hold the plot for us while we sold our other home on the site.
“We moved into our new home at The Maples at the end of 2019 and couldn’t be happier with how it has all worked out. Redrow were great through the whole process, both times that we bought and it’s nice to not have to move away from the community.”
William is semi-retired now but continues to be involved with his own building company which is based in London.
William commented, “The Maples is conveniently located for the days I need to travel into London for work, as I can get a direct train from Royston to London Kings Cross. Having worked in the building trade it is also easy to see which housebuilders are delivering new homes well and we recognised the quality in Redrow.”
