Car breakdown makes for a happy home for Michelle and Richard at Glevum Green
In January 2018, Michelle and her partner Richard were driving past our Brizen Park development when their car broke down. Waiting for recovery, they took a look around the development and were extremely impressed with the style and quality on offer. While the properties were a little larger than they were looking to move into, the sales team informed them about another development where they could view a four-Bedroom Cambridge. It was love at first sight, so much so that they made the decision to hang on for another two years and wait for the planned development which ticked all their boxes; Glevum Green in Gloucester.
Michelle says,“We had been living separately in our own homes and were keen to sell up and move in together, so when we saw the Cambridge we just knew that it was for us. It was a dream, literally breathtaking. The family kitchen diner room was just perfect, and the arts and craft style, spaciousness combined with the well-designed development and surroundings, was just perfect for us.”
The sales team were keen to get the couple their dream home and involve them at every stage of the journey. They helped Michelle and Richard identify the perfect plot off plan for them, and kept them fully informed every step of the way as it was being built, Michelle explains.
“We knew we wanted a north-facing garden, so we registered our interest for the first one to become available. As the process of development went on, we regularly walked our dog through Glevum Green and were gradually able to see our house being built, and our dream becoming a reality.
“The whole team at Redrow made the process personal and stress-free. They just offer the highest level of service. When we both put our homes on the market at the end of February last year, they expressed that they would wait for our sales - which were both quick as it transpired – and involved us at every stage. There was a real family feel to the whole process.
“Moving in felt like a dream, the same feeling you have when you go on holiday and having just spent our first Christmas in our dream home we are still pinching ourselves!”
The community at the development has also been very welcoming. Michelle and Richard have become close to their neighbours, who even knocked on the door with a home-cooked meal in their early days. They have no hesitation recommending the development or the Redrow team to prospective buyers.
“One day we received a knock at the door, some prospective buyers wanted to have a look at the garden and were just bowled over at the quality of everything. We think it’s safe to say that like us, once people see Glevum Green, they are keen to find their forever home here too.”
Glevum Green is situated at the heart of historic town Gloucester, with easy access to landmarks like the Cathedral and historical socks, which shops, amenities and highly regarded schools nearby.
Libby Bolton, Sales Manager says: “Glevum Green is a five star development. The local area offers so much opportunity and similar to the city itself, the homes at our development combine the finest of traditional architecture with the very best of modern living.”
With a variety of three and four-bedroom styles, the site is nestled in the green surroundings of Gloucester, with plenty to offer fans of fresh air sports and walks, including a gold club and tennis centre.
