Unique Heritage Collection Lands On The Market At Victory Fields
17 Mar 2014

The high quality new homes at Victory Fields in the Cotswolds village of Upper Rissington are infused by aviation history – and nowhere more so than the latest selection to land on the market.

Award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes has just released the Heritage Collection: delightfully refurbished properties within a former RAF building that recalls the site’s past as an airstrip once home to the famous Red Arrows.

The arrangement comprises a pair of three-bedroom single-storey homes and a trio of four-bedroom homes.

The structure being brought back to life was officially called Building 45 and it was used when military planes regularly operated from RAF Rissington – known affectionately by locals as “Little Rissi”.

The building’s dimensions have bequeathed the opportunity to create characterful homes with soaring ceilings and double-height windows to flood the broad and airy surroundings with light.

From the outside the homes are handsome and substantial while inside, open-plan areas unite kitchens, dining and family rooms into flexible spaces ready to suit all sorts of buyers, whether downsizers, professional couples or those hunting a home with a difference.

Victory Fields comprises over 300 homes located almost equidistant between Cheltenham and Oxford. Buyers will look to Linden Homes’ superior quality and all-inclusive value, as well as the assurance of 10-year NHBC guarantee and two-year customer care warranty.

The new community holds the promise of a new primary school, a village square that will include a local shop, a proposed public house, gym and nursery, and green space dotted with play areas, wildlife ponds and tennis courts.

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 Heathrow.

Linden Homes Thames Valley sales and marketing director, Steve Garton, said: “One of the exciting things about redeveloping a site like Victory Fields is the opportunity to bring to life some of the original buildings and make them new again.

“The Heritage Collection has exactly the same top quality attention to detail as our other beautifully characterful houses. But they are also a part of the area’s heritage and boast everything that comes with that – tall windows, high ceilings and a unique feel.

“Victory Fields is in a beautiful part of the country, so with its rural charm and good connections it offers a very special lifestyle. It’s why our homes have been selling quickly and we’re advising people to get in touch soon so they don’t miss out.”
