According to a recent report, 73 percent of people said they chat to their neighbours at least once a month[i]. Bringing a thriving new community to the quintessential North Hertfordshire village of Barkway, Storey Homes is launching a unique new collection of homes later this month at Birch Meadow. Homebuyers can now enjoy a blissful life in an established rural village known for its sense of belonging and friendly community.
Comprising 12 beautiful three, four and five-bedroom homes, Birch Meadow is located on the edge of the tranquil village of Barkway. Steeped in history with some local buildings and houses dating as far back as the 15th century, residents at Birch Meadow will find everyday amenities and shops including the popular local pub The Tally Ho and Barkway Park Golf Club, close by. Also, in the village, on the original green and market place, is Barkway Pre School and Barkway VA (Church of England), just a short walk from the homes.
Katy Jordan, Managing Director of Storey Homes, comments: “We are thrilled to be launching Birch Meadow in Barkway. Being a part of a friendly neighbourhood is an important factor when choosing a new home. Birch Meadow has been designed to promote community values and allow residents to easily meet their neighbours with a series of green spaces throughout the development. With a unique collection of just 12 homes in an excellent location, we encourage potential purchasers to get in contact as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.”
Offering 10 exclusive private detached properties and two semi-detached shared ownership properties, the charming collection features luxurious design complete with a high specification. Creating the hub of the home and appealing to a range of buyers including commuters, downsizers and families, many of the four and five-bedroom homes benefit from open-plan living areas. In addition to a separate lounge, select homes include a spacious kitchen/dining/family room for spending quality time together. Complete with built in wardrobes and en suites, the master bedrooms at Birch Meadow exude luxury.
Allowing residents to make the most of their rural surroundings, the development features an elegant bluebell swathe, green spaces throughout and retained trees. As well as soft landscaping, the properties benefit from larger than average gardens and off-street parking as standard. All properties come with an electric vehicle charging point.
Five miles away is the larger town of Royston, offering an abundance of leisure activities including the Royston Cave and Caverns hidden beneath the streets, Royston and District Museum and Art Gallery and a paintballing facility. Royston also provides a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs whilst Cambridge Science Park is just 15 miles from the homes, making it an ideal commuter location for local professionals.
Birch Meadow has excellent travel links and is an ideal spot for commuting to Cambridge or London. Royston Train Station is less than a 15-minute drive from the development and offers trains to Cambridge in only 15 minutes and to London Kings Cross in 43 minutes. For travel by car, the A10 is just a few miles away for traveling to Cambridge in the north and St Albans in the south, with the M11 and A1 motorways a little over 30 minutes away for journeying further afield.
