Living in a village conjures up the picture of a quintessentially English idyll so it is no wonder it is a lifestyle that many homebuyers aspire to. According to a survey by GoCompare Mortgages, one in three Brits think the ideal place to live is in a village1. The popular village of Binfield in Berkshire has that winning combination of character, community and countryside that makes village living so attractive and here Bellway Homes is creating Amen Corner, a new collection of family homes in an outstanding location.
Binfield is a large village and so offers an excellent range of amenities including sporting facilities, a well-regarded primary school, as well as shops, pubs and restaurants. The development itself is set in generous landscaped grounds surrounded by fields and ancient woodland, adding to the rural feel. With a range of stylish two, three and four bedroom houses now available offering well-appointed accommodation and elegant elevations, Amen Corner ticks all the boxes for modern village living.
Zoe Dobbs, Sales Manager at Bellway Homes North London comments: “Living in an attractive village with a warm community is the perfect way of life for many people who want to enjoy the countryside while also having amenities on their doorstep. Choosing a home at one of our developments like Amen Corner means the best of both worlds, enjoying all of the benefits of village life, while moving into a high spec new home, purpose built to suit contemporary lifestyles.”
The properties currently on the market at Amen Corner come in a range of layouts including detached, semi-detached and terraced houses, all with traditionally inspired architecture using materials such as red brick, slate and render to blend seamlessly with the local village vernacular. The site is laid out along wide, tree-lined boulevards that create a safe and leafy environment. A new primary school is being created as part of the development, which will cement its position as a welcoming place for families and a neighbourhood with a strong sense of community.
The houses come in a choice of layouts to suit a range of buyers but all make the most of space and natural light. Home layouts have been cleverly designed to provide plenty of space inside and out. The open plan living and dining areas are perfect for families. Homes all come with integrated appliances, en suites to master bedrooms and off-street parking for two cars. The development will also feature one and two bedroom apartments and five bedroom houses to be released in 2018.
Amen Corner is not only well positioned for everything that the village of Binfield has to offer, the market town of Wokingham is only a 10 minute drive away, while Bracknell with its regenerated town centre and the newly opened Lexicon shopping centre, is even closer.
While living in a village can feel like being in the sticks, Amen Corner benefits from excellent travel links so residents will always be well connected. The A329M is within easy reach and connects with J10 of the M4 providing convenient access to Bracknell, Reading, Slough and London. Bracknell Train Station is just over a five-minute drive away providing services to commuter destinations such as Reading, London Waterloo and Clapham Junction.
