Our new home is perfect for our growing family

Our new home is perfect for our growing family

May 28, 2020In Uncategorized6 Minutes

May 2020: After the arrival of their youngest son Joe, Alistair and Emma decided it was time to look at moving to a larger home to raise their two sons. The family had lived in the north Oxfordshire village of Duns Tew for over ten years, and were really settled with many friends, and their son Jack, aged nine, attended a nearby primary school.

But with two growing boys they really wanted a larger garden for them to run around and play football in and a fourth bedroom was on the wish list. The couple viewed a number of second hand and new build properties locally and were fortunate when first time buyers made an offer on their home.

Alistair explains, “We had looked at a number of properties and decided we liked one in Steeple Aston. Our offer was accepted and with an offer on our existing property we started the ball rolling to move home. Then one day the sellers changed their mind and we lost the property. With Brexit and the uncertainty in the housing market it made us slightly nervous that we could run the risk of losing our buyers if we didn’t find an alternative property quickly.

“Emma and I looked into the options and had become aware of a small new development in Tackley by Deanfield Homes. Although it was at the top of our budget, a new build property was really appealing to us as it is totally brand new, no-one else has lived in it before and there is no uncertainty with a chain and someone pulling out.

“We visited Deanfield Grove one weekend and immediately fell in love with it. The house has a lovely landscaped garden to the front and back and is a great size for the boys to enjoy and the house offered four generously sized bedrooms. We also really liked the feel of the village with its community shop and children’s playground nearby.”

Alistair and Emma purchased a four bedroom Fyfield at Deanfield Grove.

Alistair continues, “We were fortunate to move in before the Covid-19 lockdown so we have been able to really enjoy our new home. The garden has made such a difference for us all and there is a lovely patio area to sit out on and enjoy the view of the hills in the distance. There is also an extra playroom for the boys to have fun and chill out in.

“We were so impressed with the customer service we received from Deanfield Homes and Savills. Before lockdown, Sarah from Savills took us on a little tour of the development and introduced us to a few of our neighbours. We are really looking forward to being able to get to know everyone and for the boys to make new friends and play out together. It already feels like home here.”

All the homes are now sold at Deanfield Grove, Tackley. Deanfield Homes  is currently marketing Deanfield Grange in the sought after Cotswold village of Shipton-Under-Wychwood. It features a stunning collection of three, four and five bedroom family homes, built using local materials to create attractive street scenes on the edge of the sought after village and already over 50% of the homes are reserved or sold.

Each property is built to a quality specification with a professionally designed kitchen, Bosch appliances, built-in wardrobes to select bedrooms, contemporary bathroom suites and a host of energy saving measures for low running costs.

Help to buy enabled us to get our perfect family home

Help to buy enabled us to get our perfect family home

May 2020: Ariane and Matt Grimshaw (37) had been living in rented accommodation in Minster Lovell, near Witney, Oxfordshire with their three daughters but were really keen to get on the property ladder and buy a home for their growing family.

The couple had previously looked at several properties but at the time were unable to get a mortgage. When a change of circumstances meant they were able to proceed with a new search, the family were quick to look at several new developments, including Deanfield Homes latest development, Deanfield Grange in Shipton-Under-Wychwood.

Ariane explains, “As soon as we knew we were in a position to start our property search again we looked at a number of new build developments in the area. We were keen on new build as they offered the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, making the property more achievable. Having looked at several developments, we were really impressed when we visited Deanfield Grange.

“Immediately we knew the quality of the build was better than others we had previously seen and after viewing the show home, loved the way the house was designed internally and the generous size of each room.”

Ariane and Matt purchased a four bedroom detached Dunsmore at Deanfield Grange with impressive kitchen/dining/family room, separate utility room and landscaped front garden.

Ariane continues, “Deanfield Homes and the team at Savills were so accommodating and helped us through the process. Both Matt and I were keen not to buy from a larger housebuilder and really got the personal touch from Deanfield Homes, moving a wall back for us and lowering the plug sockets.

“We were about to complete on our property when the Coronavirus pandemic broke but Deanfield Homes and Savills were incredibly helpful and efficient and got us through this difficult time. They went above and beyond to get us moved into our home in time and nothing was too much trouble for them. We can’t thank them enough.

“We are so impressed with the quality of the home and features like the oak doors and the team at Deanfield Homes have really looked after us. The site manager even came to check we were all OK after moving in and made sure we could work everything.

“With home-schooling and working from home, because of lockdown, the house has proved it works for us. Matt has been running his management consultancy from home and we have all been able to be in the house at the same time and not disturb him working. The house feels so spacious even with all our furniture in it and the girls are loving the fact that they have their own bedrooms. We feel very fortunate.

“Once lockdown is over, the location is also really great for us as I am able to get to Witney where I teach gymnastics and Matt can travel a couple of days a week to London which is easily accessible for him.”

Located on the edge of the sought after Cotswolds village of Shipton-Under-Wychwood, in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the homes at Deanfield Grange are proving a real hit with discerning purchasers, with over 50% already reserved or sold. The development features a stunning collection of three, four and five bedroom family homes, built using local materials to create attractive street scenes.

Help to Buy is available at Deanfield Grange on homes up to £600,000. The scheme enables you to buy a new home with just a 5% deposit, whether you are a first-time buyer or moving from your existing home and the Government will lend up to 20% of the value of the new home via an equity loan. (T’s & C’s apply).

Shipton-Under-Wychwood benefits from a highly regarded primary school, tennis club, a convenience store with Post Office and two pubs, The Wychwood Inn and The Shaven Crown, the latter of which overlooks the village green and was once a guest house run by monks.

The village is located on the A361 between Chipping Norton and Burford, the M40 and the A44 run to the east of the village, with the A40 to the south. There are also good national rail connections which can be accessed from Shipton, Ascott-under-Wychwood and Kingham train stations and are serviced by Great Western Railways. Shipton station, which is an 18 minute walk from Deanfield Grange, offers direct services to Oxford, Reading and London Paddington, with the latter less than 90 minutes in journey time.

Wychwood Wild Garden is one of the village’s real highlights, a centuries old garden and woodland spanning 12.5 acres, where waterfalls, ponds and ancient trees support a variety of wildlife and provide a tranquil spot for contemplation.

Prices range from £399,000 to £825,000 at Deanfield Grange.

May 2020: Jo and Graham Benfield had been living in rented accommodation in Shipton-Under-Wychwood for several years, waiting for their dream home to come along. The couple, who have two sons, Rory, age eight and Quinn, age two were keen to stay in the village where Graham himself had been raised just down the road.

Jo explains, “We have always loved the area, it’s great being in the countryside but still having local amenities.  Rory attends the local primary school and Graham and I both have friends and family living locally, so when it was first announced that Deanfield Homes were building a new development in the village I was keen to find out more.

“I contacted Savills in the summer of 2018 and eagerly searched for further information. We hadn’t looked at any other homes before but the thought of a new build home in the village really appealed. Over the next 18 months I visited Deanfield Homes’ developments in Ducklington and Tackley and was really impressed with the quality and attention to detail. 

“As soon as we could we were the first to reserve at Deanfield Grange using Help to Buy. The process was really straight forward and our application was dealt with really quickly. The team at Savills and Deanfield Homes were so helpful and made the whole buying process as stress free as possible.”

Jo and Graham purchased a three-bedroom semi-detached Hampton and were one of the first to move into the brand new development. Jo continues, “We are so impressed with the quality of our new home. Members of our family are in the building trade and they have commented on how good the quality and workmanship is, and we have been so well looked after by the team at Deanfield Homes.

“Unlike some new homes, we have had so many things included in the purchase price, such as integrated appliances, fitted wardrobes, mirrors, and it’s the smallest things that have really impressed us, such as the quality of the internal doors, we particularly love them. We also really love the stylish bathroom and en-suite.

“Getting to work is also really easy with Graham working in Bourton on the Water for a transport company and myself in Banbury working in marketing for a financial services company, I can also get the train nearby when I need to travel for work so it’s great. We couldn’t be happier with our dream home.’

Why buy new?

Why buy new?

May 6, 2020In Uncategorized5 Minutes

Buying a new home has multiple benefits – advantages that are felt from the moment you reserve a property and that last throughout your homeownership. At Deanfield Homes, we take buying new to an elevated level, ensuring your experience of owning one of our properties brings a lifetime of pleasure.

Below are some of the Deanfield differences:-

Help selling your existing home: Deanfield’s Assisted Sale service takes away the hassle of appointing and managing an estate agent. We step in and manage the sale of your property using a network of handpicked agents, leaving you free to reserve the home of your dreams. What’s more, Deanfield will pay your estate agency fees.

Shorten your property chain: buying a new home will complete your chain. This guarantees there is no one above you, therefore making the transaction much simpler to coordinate.

Maximum choice: buying off plan or early in the construction process gives buyers the pick of the plots and allows purchasers to influence the internal specification of their new home. Register your interest in our developments and enjoy the opportunity to choose your favourite property type, kitchen, tiles and floor coverings.

Enjoy a home, not a project: buying brand new gifts purchasers the chance to concentrate on living life, rather than worrying about niggling maintenance or DIY tasks. Each Deanfield property is impeccably finished and ready to move in to, with fully fitted kitchens, integrated appliances, beautiful bathrooms and low running costs.

A decade of peace-of-mind: there are no guarantees with older properties but when you buy new from Deanfield Homes, you’ll benefit from a 10-year NHBC warranty, an emergency NPA 24/7 call-out service and our very own two-year after-sales service, following completion.

Being part of a community: new homes are the perfect choice for buyers who are community minded. Every Deanfield Homes development is hand-selected and laid out to create a new, welcoming neighbourhood.

Modern homes, traditional details: although our new homes are packed with cutting-edge technology and modern fittings, we have perfected the art of including traditional details that bring a sense of comforting familiarity.

Improved eco credentials: buying new instantly improves energy efficiency. As well as modern methods of construction – with emphasis on sustainability and locally-sourced materials – every Deanfield home comes with a raft of eco saving measures. Expect thermostatically controlled central heating power by an A-rated boiler and monitored by a smart energy meter; energy and water-saving kitchen appliances; dual flush WCs; double glazed windows for optimum thermal insulation; low energy lighting and high levels of insulation – all included to reduce energy consumption and lower fuel bills.

Make your mark: new homes offer buyers a blank canvas – smooth, neutrally-painted walls ready for a splash of colour, cherished photographs or your favourite artwork. Move in and personalise your space without hesitation.

Secure by design: we want buyers to feel safe and secure in their new Deanfield home, so we always include a multi-point locking system to the front door, outside lights and dusk-to-dawn sensor lights serving the main entrance point.

Deanfield Grove gives us the perfect setting to raise our family

Deanfield Grove gives us the perfect setting to raise our family

January 13, 2020In Uncategorized5 Minutes

December 2019: The pitter patter of tiny feet can often make you readdress where you live and for one couple Catherine and Alistair Chaytor, a semi-detached home on a busy main road in Headington, Oxford with no off road parking just didn’t work with two small children.

Catherine comments, “Alistair and I had bought our home six years ago before having children and it was perfect for our lifestyle and where we worked. But once we had George (4) and Matilda (2) the busy City location, impractical layout and lack of parking started to prove a problem and we had also simply outgrown the house.

“We were really keen to move to a village location and needed a larger home so we started to look around. We weren’t really considering new build homes as an option because we had previously lived in one and also felt the garden would be too small but when my brother told me about a new development, Deanfield Grove in Tackley, where he and his family live we decided to take a look.

“We visited the show home and were really impressed with the quality and the size of the development but were still a little unsure on buying a brand new home. We went away and started looking at more second-hand properties but they were all in the wrong location or needed lots of work doing to them and our thoughts kept coming back to the homes at Deanfield Grove.

“We visited the show home again and realised that it provided us with everything we wanted. We were so impressed with quality of the finishes and the little extras that Deanfield Homes include in the price such as bathroom mirrors and integrated appliances. When we moved into our previous new build home it was just a shell and we needed to add everything. Deanfield Homes really changed our perception on new build homes.

“We fell in love with the four bedroom detached Elstow which is really well designed and laid out internally and perfect for our growing family. There are also four double bedrooms which are all a great size and the quality of the doors and built in wardrobes makes it feel so spacious. The garden is also perfect for what we need for the children and it’s great for them to be able to have some outdoor space.

“We put our house on the market and initially sold it really quickly but unfortunately our buyer’s chain collapsed which was a rather stressful time. Deanfield Homes and Savills were really accommodating and patient with us and allowed us to find another buyer and not lose our home.

“We are really happy here and have already settled into village life and it’s great to have my brother and his family on the doorstep. The development is in the centre of the village which backs onto the school playground and George will be starting there in January at the pre-school. Alistair also walks to the station to get the train to work at the Science Park in Oxford which is so convenient and we are still able to reach Oxford easily if we want to go out at the weekend.”

All homes are now reserved/sold at Deanfield Grove.

Tackley is situated eleven miles north of Oxford and just four miles from the historic town of Woodstock. It also has a mainline railway station with direct trains to and from Oxford and Banbury. At peak times the average journey time to and from Oxford station is just 10 minutes.

We’ve found our dream family home

We’ve found our dream family home

November 27, 2019In Uncategorized7 Minutes

November 2019: Finding the perfect home to raise a family is a big driver for many parents and for Hannah and Nick Brown they couldn’t quite believe it when they found their dream home in Tackley, Oxfordshire.

Hannah explains, “Nick and I had been living in a three bedroom house at the former RAF base in Caversfield, Bicester for six years and were really happy with the area. When Jacob came along, we started to realise that we were limited on living space downstairs with a growing toddler and also lacking any proper storage.

“We started to look around and viewed a number of old and new build homes in the Bicester area but just couldn’t find the home that ticked all the boxes. I had been regularly searching online and Deanfield Homes’ development in Tackley kept appearing, but we had ruled it out as it was not in Bicester. Then one afternoon we decided to take the plunge and go and visit the show home at Deanfield Grove and couldn’t quite believe it when we arrived.

“Nick and I loved the village setting straight away and as soon as we saw the home we quickly realised that it was just perfect for what we wanted. The property offered so much more than we had been looking at and the proportions of the rooms were really generous along with a lovely sized private garden and I instantly fell in love with the kitchen.

“We hadn’t really considered moving away from Bicester but with it only being 20 minutes away, we weighed everything up and realised that we simply couldn’t walk away from this home. Nick also commutes by train regularly and we were delighted to find a village train station just a few minutes’ walk away, as well as a village primary school and convenient local shop.”

Hannah and Nick purchased a three bedroom semi-detached Blenheim at Deanfield Homes’ sought after development, Deanfield Grove in Tackley, Oxfordshire.

Hannah continues, “We were really impressed with the quality of the homes at Deanfield Grove and the attention to detail and high specification throughout. It’s the small touches that really show the quality and care that has gone into the homes, such as each room having its own air circulators and spacious floor to ceiling wardrobes in the bedrooms. Also, with an eighteen month old and a second baby on the way in the Spring, the quality of the carpets is really important for cleaning up any accidental spills! There is also so much storage which is perfect for our growing family.

“Deanfield Homes were also really helpful throughout the whole process. We had a chain which took longer than we hoped but they were so supportive all the way and kept us updated regularly. We were really impressed.

“We are quickly settling into our new home and Jacob and I have already attended the local toddler group where we felt so welcome and Nick’s commute is going really well. We are so happy to have made this move into our first proper family home.”

Just one four bedroom detached home, The Fyfield, remains available at Deanfield Grove, a small niche development of just 26 two, three and four bedroom family homes.

The Fyfield is an exceptionally spacious four bedroom detached home offering families and downsizers the ultimate layout for complete flexibility. This home is priced at £675,000 and includes carpets throughout, lights fittings, curtains/blinds and landscaped gardens plus £20,000 stamp duty contribution.

Occupying a corner plot and boasting the largest garden, this home features a stunning kitchen/dining room with a professionally designed Shaker style kitchen, Quartz work surfaces and built in Bosch appliances, a living room and two further reception rooms for either a study, TV/playroom or a more formal dining room.

The first floor is home to a master bedroom with en-suite and fitted wardrobes, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom as well as an additional en-suite and fitted wardrobes to bedroom two. There are generous gardens to the front, side and rear and an attached garage with off road parking.
