NEWS - TWNM -  Luke Rebecca case study

Luke Gain, 24 and his partner Rebecca Thomas, 23 were delighted when their hunt for their first home together lead them to the spacious two-bedroom Canford property at our Scarlett Oaks development in Shifnal, which sits on the doorstep of the stunning Shropshire countryside.

The couple, who were previously living at Rebecca’s parents in Telford whilst they saved for a deposit, were keen to move in to a place of their own. Wanting a location that was close enough to Luke’s job in Wolverhampton and Rebecca’s work in Telford whilst also benefitting from a scenic and well-connected area, Shifnal proved itself to be the ideal spot for the couple. After visiting many other properties, Luke and Rebecca quickly fell in love with the two-bedroom property, perfect for first time buyers or downsizers.

Commenting on their experience buying with Taylor Wimpey, Rebecca said “The prospect of buying our first home together was both exciting and daunting. Taylor Wimpey were immediately welcoming and personal in their approach and made the whole buying process really easy for us. We found that the sales executives were extremely knowledgeable about the homes available and we could tell they genuinely wanted to help find the perfect house for us.

“We moved into our new home in October 2018 and since then we have loved every minute. The location is perfect for us as it is in between both of our jobs and is just a short walk from the town centre of Shifnal.”

After discussing their options with the sales team, Luke and Rebecca were able to utilise the Help to Buy scheme to move into their dream home. Luke Said: “The Canford instantly caught our attention as we both loved the layout. We visited another Taylor Wimpey development to view the Canford showhome and it really helped us visualise how we could maximise the space available. When moving into the house, the builders were very accommodating and were happy to help in any way they could. The house is well designed and has a high-quality finish and we love being so close to the Shropshire countryside.”
