Sister Goals - Tamworth siblings discover dream homes, and they're almost identical!
The source of most sibling arguments is that one keeps copying the other – but this isn’t the case for two sisters from Tamworth.
When Beth Taylor visited her sister Shannon’s new home at King’s Park in Worcester she was immediately filled with new-home envy. Being low maintenance as a newbuild, yet full of characterful charm, high ceilings and wider doorways, it the perfect property – and in true sibling style, Beth wanted the same for herself.
Beth said:“When I first went to visit Shannon’s home, The Kenilworth, I could see why she’d fallen in love. I couldn’t believe the quality of the home - I had huge sibling jealously and I immediately knew that I wanted one too!”
Beth began saving for a deposit and in 2017, she’d brought her first home, an apartment, at Pennine Grange in Tamworth.
Beth added: “I was so happy when I moved into my apartment, it was perfect for my first home.”
In true sibling fashion, not long after Beth moved in, competition set in. With a growing family, Shannon was keen to upgrade to a larger property, and purchased her second home, the four-bedroom Marlow, at Amington Garden Village on Mercian Way.
Shannon said:“Of course – I had to one up Beth! We loved living at Kings Park but needed a larger home with plenty of room for all the family.”
In February 2020 Beth moved onto the very same development at Amington Garden Village and was just a few minutes’ walk away from her sister.
Shannon added:“Thanks to the location of our plot, we were just round the corner from each other.”
Just a few years later, Beth met her partner Sam, from Long Eaton and they soon started to think about living together. Living 30 minutes apart, the couple were keen to meet in the middle and find a home near to both of their families.
Beth said:“I knew my dream home was a Ludlow, and so I started looking at the Redrow developments in the East Midlands. Foxbridge Manor, in Castle Donington, felt like home the second we arrived, and the location was perfect.
“Although we don’t live just down the road from each other anymore, Shannon and I still see each other all the time. She’s even thinking about moving here and purchasing her third Redrow property – that would be six Redrow’s between us!”
Elaine Cartwright, Sales Director for Midlands added:“We are thrilled that Beth and Shannon have both chosen Redrow not once but five times between them.
“Amington Garden Village is proving a very popular development as it continues to pique the interest of buyers searching for a traditional home with a high-spec interior in a well-connected, popular region.
“We'd like to welcome anyone interested in luxury living in a property in a semi-rural area close to Tamworth to get in touch to learn more about what life could be like at Amington Garden Village”
