The best of old and new in Marcham

There’s no doubt that when considering what new home to buy, we all have our own opinions to suit our different styles and tastes. The challenge for house-builders is to create a development that will appeal to all types of purchasers.

Visitors to The Croft, Millgate Homes’ development in Marcham, will find that whether they are looking for a new-build property, with a contemporary specification and a stylish finish or an established home, with traditional and period features, Millgate Homes can cater for all.

That’s because, at The Croft, there is a collection of five new four- and five-bedroom executive family properties, as well as one five-bedroom home, with origins stretching back to the Victorian era.

David Wrigley, Head of Sales at Millgate Homes, comments: “When designing our award-winning homes, we keep at the forefront of our minds the demands and expectations of purchasers in each individual area in which we build and tailor them accordingly. In a traditional village, such as Marcham, we recognise that there will be some buyers that want a property with history, while others will welcome the opportunity to create their own history in a new-build home. There are certainly many benefits to either and we’re glad that we are able to offer the best of both worlds – old and new – to the purchasers of Marcham.”

The historic property, built early in the last century, is a splendid residence which has been sympathetically refurbished internally to match its magnificent stone façade and offers one discerning purchaser a unique opportunity to own a home which includes many period features restored to perfection by Millgate’s quality craftsmen. The property is light and airy with lofty ceilings, ornate coving, fireplaces and original square paned sash windows.

The new properties at the development have been built to Millgate’s well-renowned exacting standards. The architecture of the homes is befitting of the surrounding area, whilst the interior offers the perfect balance between tradition and sophistication and is finished to an outstanding specification, with contemporary features and modern appliances from only the best brands, including the likes of Villeroy & Boch.

Situated in a private and gated cul-de-sac, purchasers can expect manicured lawns and established foliage, in the external surroundings, beautifully designed and planted by Millgate Homes’ Chelsea award-winning landscaper.

Adding to the appeal of the homes is the development’s idyllic location, situated amongst some of Oxfordshire’s finest countryside. Marcham is a traditional, historic, English village with a thriving community and a range of facilities catering for your every-day needs including a general store, church, village hall and primary school. Abingdon-on-Thames is less than two miles to the east and provides comprehensive shopping, schooling and educational facilities.

For commuters, the nearby A34 connects northbound to Oxford (nine miles) and the M40, southbound to the M4. Didcot is within seven miles and provides a mainline railway connection to London Paddington in approximately 45 minutes.

Two of the new homes at The Croft have already sold, so interested parties are advised to act with haste. To find out more about these properties, priced from £675,000, visit the show home, open daily, 10am–4pm. Alternatively, log on to
