The Cotswolds AONB is a grand landscape with a rich history boasting excellent examples of Tudor, Stuart and Georgian architecture, which has helped it evolve into the attractive and sought-after place it is today. In this distinct setting, a prestigious collection of 74 new homes from Spitfire Bespoke Homes is soon to launch, with a show home opening in early April. Forming part of its highly-anticipated Cotswold Collection, Highworth is set in the heart of Broadway Village and ideally positioned to enjoy the many delights of the rural area.
Naturally divided into two parts by the retained field hedge, Highworth benefits from sweeping views of Willersley and Fish Hills which are marked by Broadway Tower, a castle designed by renowned architect Capability Brown, along with stunning views across open fields. Each new home will boast traditionally styled facades with Cotswolds stone detailing, in keeping with the architectural style of the surrounding area. The development will comprise a variety of two, three, four and five-bedroom terraced and detached homes, along with with feature squares and open spaces, for residents to enjoy.
Charlie Comber, Partner at Hayman-Joyce Estate Agents, comments: “At Highworth, Spitfire has successfully used their expertise to blend the latest trends with older styled properties. We have already taken some early reservations, so we recommend prospective purchasers to visit the fully furnished show home when it opens in early April, to see first-hand the exceptional specification on offer at Highworth and ensure they can secure their preferred plot.”
Often referred to as the ‘Show Village of England’, Broadway sits amidst stunning Cotswolds countryside decorated with Bluebell wood and criss-crossed by ancient lanes, ideal for outdoors lovers. The village also benefits from its own golf course and cricket club; with horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, walking and cycling being among residents other popular pursuits.
Lined with horse chestnut trees, the heart of the village boasts one of the longest high streets in England which offers a wide variety of boutiques and independent shops and a good choice of traditional country pubs, tea houses and restaurants. Plans are currently underway to revive the Heritage Gloucestershire-Warwickshire Railway, bringing the age of steam back to Broadway and offering direct rail connections with Cheltenham Racecourse.
