Cleared For Landing: Victory Fields Homes Arrive On The Market
01 May 2013

The clock is ticking down to the superb collection of new houses at Victory Fields landing on the market, delivered by Linden Homes near the former base of the world famous Red Arrows air display team in Gloucestershire.

The first keenly awaited properties on the edge of the village of Upper Rissington will be available to snap up off plan on Saturday, 8th June. Buyers will be looking to the Linden Homes properties for their customary character, quality and all-inclusive value.

Victory Fields is taking shape deep in the heart of the Cotswolds, surrounded by unspoilt fields, greenery and a history that reaches back to ancient times.

The site commands outstanding views across the rolling landscape and holds the promise of a thriving neighbourhood complete with a new primary school, a village square that will include a local shop, a proposed public house, gym and nursery, as well as green space dotted with play areas, wildlife ponds and tennis courts.

The new community of over 300 homes is located almost equidistant between Cheltenham and Oxford, with nearby villages including Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water, which has an outstanding secondary school, as well as a doctor’s surgery, parish church, and cricket, football and tennis clubs.

Travelling to and from Victory Fields is straightforward - main roads link to the motorway network giving access to the M40, the M4 and the M5. The nearest train station is at Kingham, from where services can reach London Paddington in about an hour and a half. The nearest international airports are Birmingham and London Heathrow.

House-hunters who buy off-plan at Victory Fields will have the opportunity to choose the exact plot they want, and then shape their home to their individual tastes: kitchen appliances, bathroom features, tiling, flooring and so on.

As well as bringing their own personality to the guaranteed quality of their brand new home, those buying off-plan could also take advantage of special pre-show home prices which might not last long.

Families will particularly appreciate that a brand new Linden Homes property also means money and energy-saving features such as gas-fired condensing boilers and fitted UPVC double glazed windows.

To people struggling to build up funds for a deposit, Help to Buy can give extra support – even to those with a deposit as small as 5%.

It works by the government providing an equity loan of up to 20% of the value of any new-build home worth up to a maximum of £600,000. This can be repaid at any time or when the home is sold. And an added bonus is that there is no interest payable on the loan for five years.

With the equity loan added to their deposit, buyers are in the much better position of only needing to agree a 75 per cent mortgage from a bank or building society to secure their dream home.

Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing manager Sharon Eldred said: “The combination of quality, location and surrounding countryside is going to make Victory Fields very popular – buying off plan will get you at the head of the queue.

“Not only does it give you the extra freedom to shape and decorate your own home to suit your personality, but it also gives you first choice in what will be a warm and welcoming new community with a real village spirit.

“Victory Fields will be perfect for families to grow, away from the crowds and noise of the city. Being close enough to some of the most picturesque towns in England, such as Oxford and Cheltenham, residents will never be short of things to do.”
