A community of superb new homes enjoying rich heritage and even richer countryside on its doorstep is about to take off near the former base of the world famous Red Arrows air display team.
Victory Fields is taking shape on the edge of the village of Upper Rissington, deep in the heart of the Cotswolds and surrounded by unspoilt fields and greenery, as well as 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 proposals for a primary school, post office and nearby job opportunities, as well as swathes of green space dotted with play parks.
The development is another expert regeneration of brownfield land by award-winning Linden Homes. Almost equidistant between Cheltenham and Oxford, the 300+ homes that will make up Victory Fields are just over four miles from the market town of Stow-on-the-Wold with its shopping, pubs, restaurants and tea shops, and arts and craft scene.
Buyers will be looking to the Linden Homes properties for their reputation for distinctive character, quality and all-inclusive value.
The homes are state-of-the-art but are nevertheless infused by the area’s character and history: from traces of Roman habitation through to the nearby military airfield, once home to the Red Arrows but now where the modern day RAF’s 637 Volunteer Gliding Squadron is based.
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.
Just as important, however, is the surrounding area: three miles away is Bourton-on-the-Water on the banks of the pretty River Windrush. There is a post office, a local supermarket, a bank, a library and a doctor’s surgery, plus a primary and secondary school, as well as a 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.
Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing manager Sharon Eldred said: “It’s rare to find a brand new collection of homes which have such a strong story and heritage behind them, but that’s what we’re delivering here at Victory Fields.
“Our plans form the basis of a welcoming new community with a real village spirit, 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.
“A rural location of such quality deserves the very best homes and we’re determined to surpass expectations. We are building streets to bring something special to the area and make it a place where people will be eager to live for years to come.”
