The Cotswolds has been named as one of the best places to live for quality of life in the UK, rising 39 places since 2017, according to Halifax Building Society. For homebuyers hoping to get a slice of this renowned countryside haven, in the exclusive village of Broadway, Worcestershire, the final phase of properties at Spitfire Bespoke Homes’ popular development, Highworth, have recently been released. With only a handful of honey-coloured homes remaining, this is the ideal opportunity for discerning homebuyers to find the perfect balance between traditional charm and modern luxury.
Situated in the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the UK, the charming village of Broadway is often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds’, boasting one of the longest high streets in England and surrounded by swathes of beautiful countryside. Set in an already thriving community, the final phase at Highworth comprises a stunning selection of terraced, semi-detached and detached three- and four-bedroom residences, with luxurious living accommodation across two storeys.
Charlie Comber, Partner at Hayman-Joyce Estate Agents, comments: “Aptly named the ‘Show Village of England’, Broadway is one of the most desirable village locations in the Cotswolds due to its exquisite beauty. The traditional honey-coloured stone homes at Highworth are sewn into the tapestry of its rural surroundings, offering residents classic Cotswolds architecture and thoughtful modern touches internally. With a fantastic variety of house types and layouts to suit all, we recommend that interested buyers visit us as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.”
Of the 74 homes available on the open market at Highworth, there are a variety of over 60 unique house types, to suit a range of purchasers needs. All homes share Spitfire’s signature specification, offering spacious open-plan kitchen, family and breakfast areas, with glass bifold doors which fill the rooms with natural light. Individually designed kitchens feature hand painted solid oak units with quartz worktops, glass splashbacks and integrated Siemens appliances. Underfloor heating throughout the ground floor is also provided. All bathrooms are fitted with contemporary white sanitary ware by Villeroy and Boch and high-quality polished chrome fittings by Hansgrohe.
This picturesque setting will entice residents with a selection of boutiques and independent shops as well as traditional pubs, cosy tea rooms and restaurants. Broadway is also a historical hotspot, home to the Cotswold’s tallest tower designed by Capability Brown, Broadway Tower, dating back to 1758 with Highworth offering superb views marked by the tower. The 100-mile Cotswold Way walking trail also runs through the village and offers a variety of rambling opportunities.
Despite its rural location, regular train services operate from the nearby Honeybourne and Moreton-in-Marsh stations, both just a 15-minute drive from Highworth, transporting passengers into London’s Paddington Station. By car, the M42 and M5 are easily accessible. Birmingham Airport is also located just under an hour’s drive away, ideal for those wanting to lock-up-and leave.
Prices currently start from £475,000 for a three-bedroom home at Highworth. For further information, visit www.spitfirepg.co.uk or contact the selling agents Hayman-Joyce on 01386 858 510 or Knight Frank on 01789 206967.
