A couple who moved from France back to England looking for their perfect new home have found it in Shropshire.
Steve and Margaret Carroll decided to relocate after 17 years in south west France and were open minded about where to live before falling in love with a Galliers Homes property at the Kings Vale development in Baschurch.
They chose the four bedroom detached house earlier this year - before work had even begun on it - but are now happily settled in.
“Finding the right geographical area was quite a challenge since we have family and friends all over the country,” explained Steve.
“My wife and I decided to concentrate on Cheshire. Fairly quickly we discounted the big housing companies in favour of smaller builders creating more exclusive developments. Our search took us southwards in Cheshire and into north Shropshire.
“We came across Baschurch by chance. We liked the village and the beautiful surrounding countryside. We noticed that Galliers were beginning to build here so went to view their development in Hadnall which was further advanced.
“We were hugely impressed with both the build quality and the finish and Julie Williams, Galliers’ sales advisor, showed us the Kings Vale plans and we could see the potential for a perfect home in one of the house designs. In addition, the help given to us and the enthusiasm shown by Julie certainly got the ball rolling.
“Being in France presented certain challenges for us both in making choices and monitoring progress during the build but the whole process was made not only easy but enjoyable by Julie’s professionalism and the expertise of Mike Kilner the site manager.
“As you can imagine buying off plan and seeing through the build to create the house as we wanted it to be and at a distance became so much easier because of the commitment shown by Julie and Mike on site and supported by the hugely efficient company Galliers,” Steve said.
Sales advisor Julie said that she was delighted to welcome Mr and Mrs Carroll to Kings Vale, where a selection of four-bedroom homes remain on the market, with current prices starting at £289,000.
“It was quite exciting to play a part of their move from France to England and liaise with them whilst they were so far away and we are all so pleased that they have settled in so well to the new development,” she said.
