25th February 2019
As one of the most important weeks in the British and international sporting calendar approaches and avid race-goers saddle up for Cheltenham Festival (12th-15th March 2019), Spitfire Bespoke Homes is preparing to launch a beautiful new show home at Hillcroft in Gretton, Gloucestershire, on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March. Those keen to be close to the action should race to this exclusive collection of properties, less than seven miles from Cheltenham Racecourse.
Occupying a prime position on the border of the Cotswolds, Hillcroft comprises an eclectic mix of three, four and five-bedroom detached properties for sale, set within a beautiful countryside setting and offering far-reaching views across open green fields. Race-goers can hop on the nearby Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway, which transports passengers from Broadway through to Winchcombe and directly to Cheltenham Racecourse, passing through Gretton en route.
Charlie Comber, Partner at Hayman-Joyce Estate Agents, comments: “Properties close to popular racecourses across the UK are always in demand, regularly outperforming homes in the wider local area. Horseracing is a firm sporting and social favourite and Cheltenham Festival is the jewel in the crown of the racing calendar. Gretton’s proximity to Cheltenham means that Hillcroft residents will be well placed to enjoy the various race days throughout the year. Hillcroft has already received strong local interest with a number of houses already reserved off-plan, so we would like to invite potential purchasers to come and view the mpressive new show home as soon as possible.”
Blending perfectly with the village’s architectural heritage and typical of the quaint timber-linaryed buildings and stone cottages in the area, the homes at Hillcroft combine charm and character, featuring Cotswold stone, red brick and render. Stanley Cottage, the spacious four-bedroom show home is a showcase of the unique design and high-specification, bright airy interiors that Hillcroft offers discerning homebuyers.
Paying tribute to Cheltenham’s strong horse-racing links, the traditional thatched roof features decorative thatched horses galloping on the top. Stanley Cottage is a stunning family home, designed to cater to the needs of modern family living. The large open plan kitchen, dining and family area is the heart of the home and flooded with natural light, thanks to a large apex window, bi-fold doors to the rear garden and tall vaulted ceiling. Also downstairs is a study and separate living room with traditional log burner and French double doors opening onto the rear garden.
Upstairs, the large master bedroom suite is complete with a dressing area with bespoke fitted wardrobes, connecting to the private en-suite bathroom. An en-suite and fitted wardrobes are also included with bedroom two, while bedrooms three and four are served by the family bathroom. Each home at Hillcroft benefits from Spitfire’s signature specification, including individually-designed kitchens with Neff appliances, bespoke feature staircases, underfloor heating and contemporary Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware.
Gretton is ideally located less than two miles from the Cotswold market town of Winchcombe and less than ten miles from the regency spa town of Cheltenham. Regular trains from Cheltenham Spa Railway Station serve Birmingham and Bristol in less than 40 minutes and direct trains reach London Marylebone in approximately two hours. There are also direct routes to Cardiff, Nottingham, Leeds and Manchester. For those travelling by car, the A46 and M5 are also within easy reach.
Prices at Hillcroft range from £450,000 to £850,000. The new show home is open Thursday to Monday between 10.30am and 5pm. For more information, please visit www.spitfirepg.co.uk or call 01242 620170.
