Mangotsfield in May

A good time to go hunting for a new home – with stamp duty paid!*

Mangotsfield in May is a good time to go house-hunting and for those attracted by the concept of a brand new home which combines the external character of the South Gloucestershire village’s old-established villas with twenty-first century layout and facilities, Cotswold Homes’ Richmond Grove development on the junction of Richmond Road and St James Street is a good place to start – and finish!

“Richmond Grove was a hit from the outset,” reports Terri Hayes-Pugh, Cotswold Homes’ sales and marketing director. “We were overwhelmed by the number of people who turned up recently to view the newly-opened showhome. Many of these high specification homes have already been reserved.

“Some buyers have been attracted by the opportunity to personalise their new homes with their own choices of kitchens, flooring and bathroom tiles.”

Many of them have properties to sell first but Cotswold Homes is ready to help them with the company’s Assisted Move service, part of its popular GameChanger package. This means that, subject to terms and conditions, the company can offer help with moving costs such as estate agency fees and carpets.

Buy this month the housebuilder could foot the stamp duty bill and for buyers making use of the Government’s Help-to-Buy scheme only a five per cent deposit is required. Both are subject to terms and conditions. For Help-to-Buy visit

The ‘aspirational but attainable’ showhome interior has been created by Becky Astley of locally-based Jane Clayton & Company.

Becky explained: “I designed it with young working families and professionals in mind. It features a mix of contemporary furniture with a Scandinavian feel of the type which is very on trend and available in a number of retail outlets currently.”

Terri continued: “A lot of thought has been put into the design of this house type – The Compton – in order to maximise light and space. I believe we have created a home with charm and interest on every level.”

On the ground floor the three-storey showhome features a spacious room which has been described as ‘a wow-factor multi-use family room’ occupying the full width of the house.

It is linked to the kitchen-dining suite which, designed for smart dining, is finished with a full range of integrated appliances. French doors provide access to the garden for alfresco dining.

The master bedroom suite on the first floor features a fitted wardrobe and an en suite with an over-size shower enclosure and chrome towel rail. French doors open on to a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden.

  • Prices of the new homes at Richmond Grove start at £349,000. For more information contact the marketing suite, 07989 581236, or Andrews Land & New Homes on 01242 248 975. Ask about Cotswold Homes’ GameChanger package and the Government’s Help-to-Buy scheme (terms and conditions apply – visit
