A 6,000 Mile Move For A New Life In Warrington

Posted 30 March 2021 by Keith Osborne

Mr and Mrs Lo relocated to the UK and found a dream home and great service from Redrow at Taylor's Chase...

Warrington had everything Mr and Mrs Lo were looking for when they decided to relocate from Hong Kong to the UK to start a new life.

After visiting the UK a number of times for holidays prior to their permanent move, the couple, who are in their fifties, knew they wanted to settle over here, eventually finding their perfect property at Redrow’s Taylor’s Chase development in Great Sankey.

“As we had previous experience of what life was like in the UK from our travels we knew that we would have a good life this side of the world. The cost of living is much better and the environment too,” said Mr Lo.

The couple moved to the UK in October last year and lived in Manchester while they searched for a home. They decided to start looking further afield, researching other places nearby such as Liverpool and Chester before deciding Warrington had everything they wanted.

“We wanted to get a feel for areas outside of Manchester. When we first visited Taylor’s Chase and viewed the show home, we instantly liked the quality of the build, the ceiling heights were good and the space inside just felt great,” Mr Lo added. “But the thing that really sold the house to us was the customer service we received from the Redrow team. From our first visit the sales consultant was extremely patient with us and explained everything in so much detail, it really put us at ease.”

The couple decided to purchase a four-bedroom detached ‘Harrogate’ at The Brook at Taylor’s Chase.

“Another element that made our journey hassle-free was the fact we could choose interior options and upgrades to our home online via MyRedrow.”

Redrow’s online portal My Redrow allows buyers to do everything from browsing for their new home and making appointments, to actually reserving a property, personalising it by choosing from a range of options at the touch of a button, and following the build progress.

Mr Lo said: “Homes in England offer more for your money than in Hong Kong. To compare living costs and house prices in Hong Kong to somewhere over here, it would be like London but still much more expensive so we feel very lucky that we’ve managed to find a lovely home to settle into and start our new life here.”

Taylor’s Chase actually features two Redrow developments in one – The Brook and The Oaks – between them offering a wide range of new homes types.

The Brook, off Sophia Drive, comprises a wide mix of properties including two-bedroom apartments and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses. Currently prices start at £295,995 for a three-bedroom detached ‘Warwick’.

Its neighbour, The Oaks, accessed via Omega Boulevard, features three-, four- and five-bedroom detached homes. They include examples of Redrow’s new generation of ‘Lifestyle Homes’, which have been redesigned to create more space in key areas upstairs for those who require fewer but larger and more luxurious bedrooms. Homes at The Oaks currently start at £379,995 for an ‘Oxford Lifestyle’.

Located between Manchester and Liverpool in Great Sankey, Warrington, Taylor’s Chase provides excellent access for commuters. Just off junction 8 of the M62, homeowners could be in Manchester in 40 minutes and Liverpool within 30 minutes. For those who don’t want to drive, the new Warrington West station is just over a mile away and offers regular trains to both cities.
