Determined to reserve the perfect home, Sean Miley slept in his car outside Redbridge Park, on Sherwoods Lane ahead of its launch.
It was a labour of love for the 25-year-old civil servant who was desperate to secure a home for himself and his fiancée, Charlotte, 23, who works at Liverpool John Moores University.
“My uncle owns a Redrow home so we know all about the quality,” he said. “We’d also done our research and visited other Redrow developments in the city and even drove to Birmingham to see a show home there,” Sean explained.
“We knew what we wanted and didn’t want to miss out so when I finished work I drove to the development, parked up outside and stayed there all night. As it happens I didn’t need to be there quite so soon but by the time the sales office opened a queue of 40 or 50 people had built up so I was pretty glad I’d got their first.”

Redbridge Park will eventually feature 60 three and four-bedroom Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection homes.
Sean and Charlotte have reserved a three-bedroom detached Amberley.
“We knew of Redrow and, living nearby, have followed this development quite closely. We’re impressed by the quality of Redrow’s homes in comparison to other companies. They have a real understanding of what customers want. In addition, the site itself is in such a well-established and sought-after area.”
The development is being built on the former site of Redbridge and Bank View high schools, both relocated, and is ideally situated for commuters and families. Fazakerley train station is around 20 minutes away on foot for trains into Liverpool Central.
