NEWS - TWWM - Michael and Catherine testimonial

First time buyers, Michael Boxall, 28 and Catherine Griffin, 25 recently made a major life decision to relocate from Cheshire to Droitwich and are now settling into their new home at our Maple Coppice development. The couple, who moved to the area for work purposes, joined the growing community in December last year with help from the Government backed Help to Buy scheme and were able to secure their home with a 5% deposit.

Michael previously worked in the army and moved to the area to progress a career in Facilities Management in Warwick whilst Catherine is able to continue her line of work in Museums. One thing that was important to the couple was choosing a location that had good access to transport links which Maple Coppice was able to deliver. Droitwich Spa Station is a short drive away from the development and provides direct services to Birmingham New Street. The M5 is also easily accessible and allows commuters to travel into the centre of Birmingham. Michael said:


“it was important for us to choose a location that had good access for both Catherine and I to get to work, and we’ve managed to adapt fairly quickly thanks to motorway being closeby. As we don’t have a great deal of background knowledge on the area, we needed commutable links that were right on our doorstep - we’re lucky that we found a location that accommodates that.”


The couple opted for the Copcut with help from the Sales Executives at Maple Coppice who listened to the couple’s needs and affordability. The Copcut has been designed to provide homeowners with a comfortable day-to-day living space with a large open-plan kitchen and dining area. Michael said: “The Copcut instantly caught our attention as we both loved the layout and it gave us plenty of space for what we could afford. The house itself was professionally built, uniformed and we could tell everything was done to a high quality.”


Commenting on their experience with Taylor Wimpey, Michael said: “Our friends had recently bought a home in Banbury with Taylor Wimpey and recommended looking into it. We did some research and they had a good reputation and lots of good reviews. We’re so glad we did because we love our new home and we couldn’t have done it without the fantastic sales team - Lydia in particular was really helpful.


“Since moving into our new home, the aftercare team including, Kevin, have been fantastic and have gone above and beyond in there performance. Their work ethic and professionalism around site is unbelievable.”
