Buying Begins Off-plan At Exclusive Ridgeway Manor Collection
24 Nov 2014

The buying has begun early at award-winning Linden Homes’ exclusive Ridgeway Manor collection nestling in the heart of Wiltshire’s Marlborough Downs.

The new development is taking shape just off the ancient Ridgeway trail, in the pretty village of Ogbourne St George, but already the only three-bedroom family property has been snapped up by eager house-hunters.

The full launch on site is planned for February 2015, but the scale of interest has built quickly enough for Linden Homes to advise interested customers to consider buying off-plan to avoid missing out.

The remaining eight homes are four and five-bedroom detached houses. The layout recalls the site’s farmyard history, and each property has been individually designed to reflect the character of the surrounding historic architecture and landscape.

Steve Garton, Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing director, said: “The exceptional location and quality of Ridgeway Manor make the properties stand out in the market both locally and further afield, so they’ve caught the attention very quickly.

“For commuters the homes are well-placed for the road network, Marlborough is nearby for your daily needs, where there is also a direct line to London Paddington. Not to forget that surrounding Ridgeway Manor is some of the most beautiful scenery in England.

“We’re advising people to consider buying off-plan to avoid the disappointment of missing out on a rare opportunity. Acting early also gives buyers the chance to put their own stamp on their home by influencing aspects of the build, upgrades and interior design – all ready for moving day.”

All of the homes come with landscaped front gardens, stunning glazed entrances, and roomy garages, while inside are stylishly appointed en suites, laundry/boot rooms, and connections primed for modern living.

In common with all Linden Homes’ developments, each Ridgeway Manor property comes with a 10-year NHBC warranty for peace of mind, as well as a two-year customer care warranty.

Ogbourne St George itself is typically English. It has two churches and Ogbourne St George & St Andrew C of E Primary School which was praised by Ofsted in its last full inspection as a “good school”.

There is also a traditional pub, The Inn with the Well, and nearby is the Ridgeway – the famous trail that crosses the rolling landscape scattered with ancient features to explore such as the mysterious Uffington White Horse chalk figure and a string of hill forts.

Despite the rural location the commute to Swindon is mercifully short, for example – just up the A346, which connects with the M4. The bustling market town of Marlborough is just five minutes away from where a mainline train station reaches London Paddington in as little as an hour.

Marlborough has one of the widest High Streets in England, an extensive range of high quality shops and a twice-weekly market. It also boasts excellent inns, pubs, cafés and restaurants, and there is a large local leisure centre, football, cricket and rugby clubs and two golf courses.
