A move to the countryside is a dream for many, promising a more idyllic lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of bigger towns and cities. In a recent survey of our favourite things about the British countryside, the most popular responses were the peace and quiet, and beautiful rural views. For those in search of a home offering the best of quintessential village life, properties are now available to purchase off plan at Spitfire Bespoke Homes’ new Seven Arches development in Barford, Warwickshire.
Seven Arches is a collection of new homes situated alongside the River Avon, in the sought-after village of Barford. Accessed via a sweeping private road, with views down to the river, the development will comprise a range of one to five-bedroom homes. Each property has been designed to harmonise with Barford’s architectural heritage, with traditionally-styled exteriors, while still offering light and spacious accommodation designed for modern living.
Barford is a pretty village just three miles south of Warwick, that is surrounded by picturesque countryside and home to a lively and active community. Seven Arches is within easy walking distance of the village’s amenities, which include two pubs, a post office, a primary school, and a community-owned shop run by volunteers. There is also a free to use sports facility, where Barford residents can play football, bowls, tennis and netball, as well as a cricket club, a junior football team, and a local drama group.
Sarah-Jayne Hart, Partner at Peter Clarke comments: “Barford is a particularly desirable village, and was named one of the Top 10 places to live in The Midlands by the Sunday Times in 2014. We have worked with Spitfire on a number of their other developments, and demand is always very high due to the exceptional standard of both the design and finish of the homes. Seven Arches is a fantastic opportunity for a wide range of buyers to purchase a stylish, state-of-the-art property, while also making their countryside dreams become a reality.”
Each of the homes at Seven Arches boasts Spitfire’s signature specification and attention to detail, which can be seen in the show homes at other current Spitfire developments in Gaydon, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Broadway. The kitchens are bespoke to Spitfire, with stylish quartz worktops and glass splashbacks. There are fitted wardrobes in the master and second bedrooms, and all bathrooms and en suites are fitted with contemporary white sanitary ware by Villeroy&Boch and polished chrome fittings by Hansgrohe.
Despite the peaceful village’s rural feel, Barford is extremely well connected. It is just a ten-minute drive from Warwick’s busy town centre, with its excellent selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, nestled between historic buildings, world-class attractions and beautiful parks and gardens.
For even more choice, the popular centres of Leamington Spa and Stratford Upon Avon are approximately 6 miles and 8 miles away respectively. With the M40 just over a mile away, Birmingham and Oxford can be reached within 40 minutes, and London in less than two hours. Warwick railway station also offers regular services to Birmingham Snow Hill, Leamington Spa, and London Marylebone.
