A recent survey of 2,000 motorists has revealed that only two per cent of those that own an electric vehicle have access to a dedicated charging point at home. While a further 30 per cent would need to travel up to 10 miles to use a public charging point, despite the number of drivers registering for ‘plug-in’ cars increasing by more than 130,000 between 2013 and 2018. Located in the picturesque village of Broadway in Worcestershire, Spitfire Bespoke Homes’ exquisite new development, Highworth, enables residents to venture no further than the comfort of their own home to charge their vehicle with exclusive access to electric charging points within their car barns.
Influenced by the timeless charm of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, all of the homes at Highworth have been meticulously designed to seamlessly integrate the character found in a classic Cotswold home, with the efficiency and convenience of modern living features in a new build property, blending all of the signature detailing that Spitfire is known for. Ranging from two to five bedrooms and set in the idyllic village of Broadway, Highworth enjoys breath taking scenery amidst some of the UK’s most stunning countryside.
Charlie Comber, Partner at Hayman-Joyce Estate Agents, comments: “We are increasingly finding that buyers are including electric car charging points in their list of criteria when searching for a new home. At Highworth, Spitfire Bespoke Homes has created a stunning collection of new homes that fully cater for modern living with an excellent specification that includes electric charging points within the car barns. This will ensure home owners can arrive home and easily charge their vehicles without the hassle of travelling anywhere else.”
All homes offer contemporary light-filled interiors including open-plan kitchen/breakfast areas which feature glass bi-fold doors. Living rooms are inviting, and all properties feature a warming wood burning stove to add to the traditional feel properties at Highworth. Master bedrooms feature bespoke fitted wardrobes, and a luxurious en suite bathroom.
All of the homes at Highworth boast a hand-painted solid oak kitchen unique to Spitfire Bespoke Homes, with quartz worktops, glass splashbacks, and Siemens integrated appliances. Meanwhile the bathrooms are fitted with contemporary white sanitary ware by Villeroy and Boch, with high-quality polished chrome fittings by Hansgrohe.
Often referred to as the ‘Show Village of England’, Broadway 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. Enriched in history, a number of museums and famous landmarks are nearby, including the Ashmolean Museum and the Gordon Russel Design Museum. Broadway Tower Country Park is also within close proximity, featuring the Cotswolds’ tallest castle designed by Capability Brown, which is visible from Highworth.
Offering excellent road and rail connections, the M42 and M5 are all easily accessible and regular train services operate from the nearby Honeybourne and Moreton-in-Marsh, which are both just a 15-minute drive from the development, transporting passengers into London’s Paddington Station in under two hours. Birmingham airport is also located just under an hour’s drive away, providing easy access for travel further afield.
Prices at Highworth start from £840,000 for a four-bedroom detached home. 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.
