Ashbury homes selling fast

1st May 2014 Print

Two out of 10 individual and unique homes being built on an exclusive development in Ashbury, Oxfordshire have been sold off plan in just six days before the showhome even opens to the public on Sunday May 11 (11am-4pm).

The exclusive Walnut Trees Hill is being created by Redcliffe Homes in the village midway between Swindon and Wantage in the Vale of White Horse.

Two of the architect-designed homes have already found buyers who viewed the plans and Redcliffe Homes are expecting a surge of interest when the Broughton showhome opens at the entrance to the development.

Lorraine Kendrick, Redcliffe’s Sales and Marketing manager said: “There is tremendous interest because Ashbury is a lovely village with a very good primary school in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

“We believe we have come up with designs that are worthy of such a beautiful location and we are also creating a play area, playing field and a local shop for the community to enhance village life.”

Each of the homes at Walnut Trees Hill is set in its own substantial grounds, with imposing, stylish and elegant designs on the outside. The houses are being constructed to match their rural location, using local materials and traditions such as flint and pan-tiles to produce roofs that will fit in perfectly with the existing houses in the area.

The inside layouts have generous living space of between 1,975 and 2,726 square feet created for flexible living to meet the individual and changing preferences of the family, allowing for home working or providing space for teenagers, guests or a dependant relative.

The two homes sold off-plan are the Buscot, a majestic five-bedroom arts and crafts home and the Chedworth, an open plan home built with home-working in mind. Like all the other homes they boast under floor heating for the ultimate winter luxury.

The scheme was designed by BBA architects of Bath in the style of the Arts & Crafts movement.

Homes in the village of Ashbury are much sought-after, offering the perfect location to enjoy rural living in south-west Oxfordshire, yet only four miles from the outskirts of Swindon, and convenient for access to Faringdon and the M4.

As part of site safety awareness while building work goes on pupils from Ashbury with Compton Beauchamp Primary School in the village have been encouraged to create their own safety posters for the site in a competition. The winner will be announced at the showhome opening on May 11, with prizes to be awarded by Ivor Goodsite, cartoon-style champion of the Considerate Constructors’ Scheme.
