Barrington Grove's Popular New Homes In Oxfordshire Half Sold
04 Sep 2013

Househunters looking for new homes in Oxfordshire will have to act fast to secure one of the stunning properties at Barrington Grove in rural Shrivenham where over half have already been sold.

The charming family development is perfect for commuters to Swindon, Newbury or Oxford, and has proved incredibly popular. Many homes were snapped up in advance of the public launch on Saturday August 10th.

Barrington Grove’s collection of two, three and four-bedroom properties boasts a mix of traditional local architecture. Thoughtfully designed outside to suit their historic and rural surroundings, inside the smart interiors boast the latest appliances and fixtures.

Blending the ancient and the modern, the stylishly finished properties nestle in the Cotswolds, surrounded by ancient history including the mysterious Uffington White Horse chalk figure.

A new show home has also opened for visitors to get a taste of the quality on offer. In common with the rest of Barrington Grove it features traditional cottage style doors to bring a touch of the rural inside.

The heart of the home, Symphony-fitted kitchens come with stylish tracked spot lights, modern upstands to match the worktops, ceramic floor tiling and contemporary stainless steel sinks and chrome taps, plus either a single or double oven with hob.

Bathrooms get the same attention to detail with contemporary white sanitaryware, modern water saving taps, chrome towel rails, stylish tiling and a contemporary range of shower trays and enclosures with clear glass and bright silver coloured surrounds.

Households will save money too thanks to Grade A energy efficient, gas-fired condensing boilers and fitted UPVC double glazed windows.

Visitors to the show home can also find out how to make purchasing even easier through the government-backed Help to Buy mortgage scheme which gives a simple step up to people with a deposit as low as five per cent.

Linden Homes Thames Valley managing director Peter Carpinelli said: “Not surprisingly there’s been a warm response to Barrington Grove, with properties being snapped up quickly.

“Its location is beautiful, the quality fantastic and the character charming. The speed of sales shows how househunters have immediately spotted its attractions and convenience – and aren’t taking long to make up their minds.

“I’d urge people who are interested in the area to come for a look around Barrington Grove and see for themselves. With Help to Buy and Linden Homes’ own assistance schemes, securing a property might be easier than you think – but don’t delay or you’ll miss out.”

For extra help, Linden Homes’ Part Exchange scheme allows eligible home-owners to choose from a selected range of homes and within seven days a valuation on their property will be made by three local estate agents, followed by a cash offer.

And for those who want a home with a touch of their own personality ready for when they move in, the Enhance service offers a face-to-face consultation to help design rooms and choose upgrades in advance.

Shrivenham is a lively and self-contained village just seven miles from the market town of Swindon and its blend of traditional shops and pubs alongside modern outlets and stylish cafes and bars.

It is perfect for local first-time buyers, growing families seeking good schools and commuters to Swindon, Newbury or Oxford. Near to hand is the M4’s national road links, while trains from Swindon reach Paddington in just under an hour.
