A new community is starting to take shape at CALA Homes’ Foxgloves as residents settle into their new life at the Shipston-on-Stour development.

Amongst the purchasers now calling Foxgloves home is Valerie Bradshaw and her husband Michael. The couple downsized to a two bedroom property this summer following their retirement, in search of a quieter lifestyle in more peaceful surroundings.

Valerie said: “With me taking retirement and our son now all grown up, it was the perfect time to downsize to a two bedroom property. I was already aware of CALA Homes and I was really impressed with the design and quality of their homes. When we heard CALA was building Foxgloves, we jumped at the chance of owning a home there. 

“Making a move to Foxgloves is proving to be one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. We’re lucky to have some lovely neighbours around us, with a young couple on our left and a couple in their 40’s on our right, it’s been lovely getting to know new friends. We instantly felt right at home thanks to the friendly faces that we are surrounded by, and we’ve settled in quickly and easily – helped by the thoughtful welcome pack CALA sent us. Michael has a heart condition and our community are so supportive when it comes to helping us - they were always offering to lift heavy boxes or be on hand if we faced an emergency. 

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a CALA home to friends and family; the design of our property has been really well thought out, and the quality of the finish is the best I have seen on a new build house. And, despite downsizing, we feel as though we’ve got more space than ever before, and our beautiful master bedroom feels so much bigger than at our previous home.  

“One of our favourite things about Foxgloves is being surrounded by such idyllic scenery and green spaces – it really does bring a smile to my face each time we drive in.” 

Neil Simpson, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (Midlands), said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome our residents to Foxgloves and it’s wonderful to hear they have had such positive experiences.  

“We’ve had an overwhelming response since launching – and it’s no surprise with the ideal location, the green open spaces and the wide range of homes available. Foxgloves represents exactly what buyers are looking for at the moment.” 

Foxgloves may seem far from the hustle and bustle of city life, however the transport links you need for the daily commute are in easy reach. The M40 motorway is situated about 15 miles away, while Bicester and Oxford are both around 30 miles from Shipston. Plus, with outstanding schooling close by and an abundance of retail and leisure facilities on its doorstep, it’s easy to see why so many are making a home at Foxgloves.
