Charles Church


10 November 2011

As the first residents to move into their new home at the sought-after new build development, The Poplars in Gloucester, Nick and Amanda Bracey were the first couple to really take advantage of what the site has to offer.

Constructed by premium homebuilder Charles Church, The Poplars has been tipped as a property hot spot in Gloucester, so much so that the company is selling ahead of schedule and new residents are now moving in on a weekly basis.

Commenting on why they chose The Poplars to call home, Nick said: “The quality and standard of workmanship of our Charles Church house certainly speaks for itself. We were looking for somewhere special and the finishing, detail and design of our property and the garden perfectly suited our requirements.

“We previously lived in Hardwicke, just a couple of miles from Quedgeley, and the convenience of the location is fantastic as we’re now even closer to the heart of Gloucester.”

After deciding to downsize, the Bracey’s chose a four bedroom detached Earlswood design, which comes complete with a double garage.

Amanda adds: “There’s a true sense of community being created at The Poplars too, we’re looking forward to the opening of the new community centre and local shops, which will both be on our doorstep, as are a number of picturesque rural walks as we’re located close to the countryside in Quedgeley.

Expert sales adviser Jo Casstles at The Poplars was on hand to assist The Bracey’s at every step of their home buying process, demonstrating just one of the major benefits of buying a brand new home from Charles Church.

Nick continues: “As our children have now grown up and moved away, it’s wonderful to still feel connected to the local community and when the kids come back there’s still plenty of room for them to stay.”

Nicola Reed, sales and marketing director for Charles Church Severn Valley comments: “It’s tremendous to see so many homeowners like Mr and Mrs Bracey now living at The Poplars. We’ve been extremely pleased with the interest we’ve received in the development as it underlines our commitment to building highly desirable homes in key locations.”
