About to open for viewing in South Gloucestershire are fully-furnished showhomes on two developments by local housebuilder Cotswold Homes Ltd.
The Yate-based firm is about to take the wraps off newly-completed four-bedroom detached homes on its Florence Gardens development in a leafy enclave off Trinity Lane in Chipping Sodbury and The Paddocks in the centre of the village of Tytherington.
The Chipping Sodbury showhome, a Burford house-type, is a spacious property featuring a hallway leading to a kitchen/dining suite with a separate utility room.
The dual-aspect lounge has French doors opening on to the garden and a further ground floor room might be used as a study or playroom. Upstairs are four bedrooms, including a master bedroom with wardrobes and an ensuite, and a family bathroom.
The Tytherington showhome, a Fulbrook house and the first of its type designed and built by Cotswold Homes, will also be available to buy at Florence Gardens.
The Fulbrook’s spacious kitchen breakfast suite, and the lounge accessed by double doors, both have French doors giving access to the garden for alfresco living. On the first floor is a master suite with an en suite and wardrobes, a guest suite, also with an en suite, and two further spacious bedrooms served by the family bathroom.
Both the Fulbrook and Burford properties include a garden, ready turfed and fenced, as well as a drive and garage.
Locally-based interior design specialists Jane Clayton & Company are putting the finishing touches to the showhomes before they open for viewing in the autumn.
‘Visitors will be seeing the new homes fully-furnished which will help them to envisage living there and how they might arrange their own furniture when they move in,’ says Cotswold Homes’ sales and marketing director Terri Hayes-Pugh.
‘The unveiling of these exciting new homes with their inspirational designs marks the culmination of months of careful design work, planning and craftsmanship by our specialist in-house teams dedicated to producing magnificent home layouts which we expect to be extremely popular,’ she explains.
‘Not only have they “created the dream” for buyers but, by assisting them with our GameChanger package and the Government’s Help-to-Buy scheme*, Cotswold Homes can make their dreams realities.’
Building work at The Paddocks – which also features two-bedroom bungalows and three-bedroom high-specification detached homes – is continuing apace with almost half of the new homes in the first phase of the development already sold. Plans for the next phase are due to be unveiled soon.
‘Interest in our Florence Gardens development has also been intense since we unveiled our plans earlier this year,’ reports Terri. ‘All the homes in the first phase have been sold and the waiting list of would-be buyers of those in the second phase is growing rapidly.’
The semi-rural development is attracting a mix of young families and retired couples, some of whom like the proximity to the nearby golf, football, cricket and tennis facilities as well as rural walks on Sodbury Common.
Says Terri: ‘On both developments our homes offer great value for money as the purchase prices include integrated appliances – oven, hob with a feature hood, fridge-freezer, washer-drier and integrated dishwasher – as well as contemporary vinyl flooring in some areas of the home. A wealth of other features, including chrome towel rails, are standard.’
