Location, Location, Location is the draw for Deanfield Meadow family

May 13, 2019

April 2019: When it comes to buying a new home, it is often said that location is one of the most important factors to consider. For Gavin and Kate Shepheard, they loved the location they were already living in but were just outgrowing their home.

Gavin comments, “We have lived in Ducklington for eight years and love the location and strong village community, but the house was just getting too small with three small children and two dogs.

“We were very settled in the village, which is perfect for families. One afternoon, Kate came home from a dog walk and mentioned that a small development of new homes were being built on the other side of the village with larger houses and suggested we explored it further.”

“We hadn’t looked properly into moving and I was only really interested in doing so if it offered us more space than we currently had. However, Kate was keen to take us all down there so we visited Deanfield Meadow one weekend and before we knew it we had reserved a new home.”

Gavin and Kate reserved a four bedroom detached Elstow home at Deanfield Meadow in Ducklington, Nr Witney, Oxfordshire.

Gavin continues, “We already had a four bedroom home but the layout of the Elstow really suits a young, modern family and the way we live, as well as giving us 30% more space. We liked the open-plan layout of the kitchen/dining/family room but also the additional space in the form of a TV/dining room, separate living room and a study.

“We were also very impressed with the quality of build of the homes and the size of the development. Buying from a smaller housebuilder also appealed to us as there is a much more personal touch with everything.

“Since they started building in Ducklington, Deanfield Homes has also been actively involved in the local community, contributing towards the local school and pre-school, which we like as our oldest daughter attends the local school and our twins are currently at the pre-school, so it feels like they are investing in their future.”

Deanfield Meadow features fourteen homes for private sale and twelve affordable homes, of which are now all sold.

Deanfield Homes has launched its latest development, Deanfield Grove in Tackley with almost 50% already reserved/sold. Situated in the heart of the much sought-after Oxfordshire village, Deanfield Grove will feature just 13, two, three and four bedroom family homes for private sale and 13 homes for affordable rent or Shared Ownership.

Tackley is set in lovely tranquil countryside, just eleven miles north of Oxford and within easy reach of main motorway routes. It also benefits from a mainline railway station with direct access to Oxford and Banbury with onward connections to London, Birmingham and beyond. Help to Buy is also available at Deanfield Grove.

The price for a three bedroom home is £395,000 and from £645,000 for a four bedroom home. The show home is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For further information please call our sales advisor on 01865 306550.
