'Sneak Peak' Reservations Herald Keen Interest At Barrington Grove
01 Jun 2013

Interest is set to be intense when Linden Homes’ exclusive houses at Barrington Grove are officially launched in the rural village of Shrivenham, Oxfordshire – after a special weekend “sneak peak” saw a trio of properties snapped up.

Up to 60 people arrived at The Wrag Barn Golf and Country Club in nearby Highworth, Swindon, on June 8th for a privileged pre-launch event where a small selection of homes was on offer for registered house-hunters.

The full collection of 19 stunning, character properties will go on the open market later this summer. Competition is expected to be fierce with strong interest expressed by prospective purchasers on plots yet to be released for sale.

Linden Homes’ team of sales advisers were at the golf and country club event to discuss the development and explain customers’ options. Those who didn’t reserve, however, will get a second chance when the launch this summer will also see the opening of the show home.

Barrington Grove boasts a mix of traditional local architecture in the range of two, three and four-bedroom properties. Thoughtfully designed outside to suit their historic and rural surroundings, 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.

Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing manager Sharon Eldred said: “We were delighted with the level of interest shown in Barrington Grove. The quick reservations show people appreciate the enviable lifestyle these properties offer.

“We expect business to continue to be brisk. Buyers have recognised the exclusive combination of stylishly modern new homes set amid some of England’s most beautiful countryside. Buying off-plan could be very popular here.

“There’s still time for househunters to act early and register their interest to be in with the best chance of securing one of these properties. Get in touch now so you don’t end up disappointed!”

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

A brand new home also means money and energy-saving features such as Grade A energy efficient, gas-fired condensing boilers and fitted UPVC double glazed windows. Traditional cottage style doors throughout with chrome ironmongery bring a touch of the rural inside.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and at Barrington Grove the 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.

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.
