Quintessential thatched country cottages are perennially popular, with a recent survey by Curtains.com revealing them to be the most coveted style of property. On Saturday 18 March, Spitfire Bespoke Homes will be launching a thatched three-bedroom show home at Pathways, a new development in the picturesque Warwickshire village of Gaydon.
Pathways is a collection of just 10 stylish family homes, ranging from three to five bedrooms. Dating back to the 12th Century,Gaydon offers buyers the best of Warwickshire village life, while also benefitting from valuable road links to a number of key destinations. Quiet, pretty streets and pleasant walks across rolling countryside together with a local pub, shop, busy village hall and picturesque church all combine to make Gaydon a sought-after destination.
Sarah-Jayne Hart, Partner at Peter Clarke Estate Agents, comments: “Pathways offers buyers a fantastic opportunity to purchase a new home in a popular village setting. The attractive properties take inspiration from the existing homes around Gaydon, marrying traditionally-styled exteriors with bright, contemporary interiors. We recommend prospective purchasers visit the fully-furnished show home when it opens this weekend, to see first-hand the exceptional specification on offer at Pathways, and ensure they can secure their preferred plot.”
The show home is a charming three-bedroom detached cottage, which boasts a traditional thatched roof and a double garage. Unlike period thatched properties, the house benefits from a bright, contemporary layout that has been thoughtfully designed for modern family life. The spacious open-plan kitchen/dining/family room extends from the front to the rear of the house, with bi-fold doors opening onto the garden that flood the room with natural light.
There is also a large formal living room, which also features glazed doors leading onto the garden, as well as a utility room and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor, the generously-sized master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes, providing plenty of storage space. The remaining two bedrooms are both doubles, and share the family bathroom which has a bath and separate shower. There is also a study, making the property ideal for home workers.
All of the homes at Pathways offer an outstanding internal specification, displaying the highest level of technical attention to detail throughout. Each property has an individually designed kitchen with quartz worktops, glass splashbacks, and NEFF integrated appliances. Meanwhile the bathrooms are fitted with contemporary white sanitary ware by Villeroy and Boch, with high-quality polished chrome fittings by Hansgrohe.
Pathways is perfectly located for residents to take advantage of Gaydon’s excellent transport links, which provide quick access by road to Warwick, Leamington Spa, Stratford upon Avon, Banbury, Kineton and Southam. The M40 and wider midlands motorway network mean that Oxford, London and Birmingham are also within easy reach.
