The Pitchings' New Homes Offer Village Life With Modern Lifestyle
23 Jun 2014

The property market in Oxfordshire is anticipating the upcoming release of award-winning Linden Homes’ exclusive collection of houses in the ever-popular village of Steventon.

The exceptional range of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties that make up ‘The Pitchings’ are enviably located to combine the charm of semi-rural living with the convenience of modern connections.

Boasting designer kitchens, beautiful high quality fixtures and fittings and money-saving energy efficiency, the properties will be launched later in the summer.

Steventon is probably best known for its traditional village green and ancient causeway. But it is also handily placed for the amenities and attractions of nearby Didcot, Abingdon and Oxford, employment areas such as Milton Park, or for commuting into London or Reading.

A well-established and lively community, Steventon offers new residents a fine range of conveniences that belies its small size: popular pubs and restaurants, an award-winning bakery, Co-op and post office, farm shop and nursery.

The attractive village green is home to the local cricket and football clubs and the busy village hall provides first class facilities for many community activities.

As well as the 14th century church, historic buildings include the privately owned Priory, the National Trust’s Priory Cottages and many fine medieval, timber-framed cottages along The Causeway – an iconic tree-lined paved path which stretches for nearly a mile from the parish church at the south western edge of the village, towards Milton in the north east.

For families with young children, there is an excellent range of state and private schools including St Michael’s Primary within minutes of The Pitchings, Abingdon School, St Helen & St Katharine School and Radley College.

For work, Steventon is also perfectly placed for travelling by road via the A34, M4 and M40, and by rail via Didcot Station. From here excellent rail services link to Reading and London, with the journey time to London Paddington taking approximately 45 minutes.

The Pitchings also inhabits a beautiful landscape dotted with delightful villages and country pubs. There are wonderful walks including the Ridgeway National Trail, the Vale of the White Horse or the downs at Lambourn.

Steve Garton, Linden Homes Thames Valley’s sales and marketing director, said: “It’s a tricky balance for house-hunters to locate the place where their dream of a countryside lifestyle doesn’t distance their family from the necessities of modern life.

“At The Pitchings, however, we’ve solved that dilemma with high quality homes in a convenient location surrounded by rural beauty and village atmosphere. The properties are superb inside and out – so I don’t think they’ll be on the market long.

“We’re advising people who want the lifestyle our homes offer to register now so they can be kept up to date with the latest news and won’t miss out.”
