An eye-catching range of houses has launched in Upper Rissington, a charming village in the heart of the Cotswolds, as award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes launches a new phase of 44 new homes at its development at Victory Fields.
According to recent research, the villages such as Upper Rissington, are increasingly becoming the location type of choice for people looking to buy in Britain. While some people prefer cities close to their place of work, a research into housing trends has revealed a desire to move to amenity-rich rural locations. The research found the village was the most popular location, with 21 per cent of survey wanting to live in a village, compared to 14 per cent for a market town and only 12 per cent for either a big city or a suburb.
The new release of homes on Phase 6 at Victory Fields comprise of three, and four-bedroom semi-detached properties.
The design of the new homes combines country-living inspired architecture with thoughtful interiors laid out for contemporary living and has proved very popular with families and first-time buyers, as well as those looking to downsize to a life in the country.
The newly launched homes are beautifully finished and some feature an open plan kitchen / dining room, fully-fitted with modern appliances and ceramic floor tiling. A spacious family living room sits on the first floor of The Fairchild design with a double set of stylish French doors leading out to a private balcony. For peace of mind, every home is independently surveyed and comes with a 10 year NHBC warranty.
The quality of the homes at Victory Fields is matched by the surroundings of the local area. Nestled within an area of outstanding natural beauty, the development also benefits from a local shop, play areas, sports fields and a country park.
