Quentin and Rachael - Port Loop, Birmingham
‘We’re surrounded by green space; something that has become so important with raising a family’
When Quentin Scrimshire and Rachael Draper made the decision to relocate to Birmingham from London, they had a strict wish list: a metropolitan feel to their new neighbourhood, a house with character, an easy commute to work and somewhere that would be suitable to start a family.
“You could call us cliché millennials” laughs Quentin when describing what they were looking for in a new home. “We wanted the city centre lifestyle but also somewhere that felt like we’d escaped. At the same time, we wanted a house full of character but didn’t want any maintenance. And it had to be practical for the future; this was going to be our ‘forever home’.”
