Hayfield celebrates 100th completion milestone
Luxury housebuilder Hayfield has handed over the keys for the 100th house it has completed on. Since construction work commenced on its first development in October 2017, the company has also scooped four national awards.
Hayfield is nearing completion on its first two developments; Hayfield Chase in Tiddington, Stratford-upon Avon, which comprises 32 open market homes and Tiddington Home Guard Club; and Hayfield Views in Great Bourton, Oxfordshire, comprising 28 open market homes, 15 homes delivered to social housing association BPHA and The Bourtons Community Hall.
The flagship Hayfields site in Southmoor, Oxfordshire, which launched in June 2018 comprises 50 open market homes and 24 homes for SOHA Housing. Hayfield Meadow in Hallow, Worcestershire launched in July 2018, comprising 39 open market houses and 26 for Fortis Living. In March this year, Hayfield Grange in the Warwickshire village of Southam launched, comprising 33 open market homes and 18 for housing group Orbit.
Hayfield is also making preparations for the start-on-site at Hayfield Green in Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire, which will bring new life to a former disused RAF WWII airfield that is steeped in rich history. 66 homes will be developed at the 20-acre site, which will incorporate a mix of new build and refurbished properties. 26 of the homes are being delivered for Cottsway Housing.
Mark Booth, Managing Director of Hayfield said: “Reaching our 100th completion is a major milestone for Hayfield. We have got to this point quicker than we originally anticipated because several our schemes have been selling ahead of the build programme. We set out to make a name for ourselves by building family homes of the highest quality, with a customer-orientated sales and aftercare service. Our sales record confirms that this approach is resonating in the marketplace and also with the industry at large.”
Hayfield has won two coveted Pride in the Job NHBC Awards for its Tiddington and Great Bourton schemes. It was recognised as one of the Best Small Housebuilders in the 2018 WhatHouse? Awards and has recently scooped the prize for Best Family Home under £750,000 at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2019.
Mark Booth continued: “We are now gearing up for a period of rapid expansion, not just in the counties that we are currently operating in – Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire. We will be bringing a number of new sites to the market in Bedfordshire, which offers all the attributes we look for when acquiring land. Over the next 12 months we anticipate delivering around 200 luxury homes.”
The 100th completion has taken place at Hayfield Views in Great Bourton, Oxfordshire. Lisa Meredith has purchased a four-bedroom detached Shotteswell home. To celebrate the milestone, Hayfield has donated £500 to a charity of her choice – the Alzheimer’s Society, which is the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity.
A flurry of sales at the double-award winning development has left only two properties remaining for sale out of a total of 43. With the scheme now nearing completion, a flourishing community has already been established at Hayfield Views, which is located off Main Street on the edge of the peaceful Oxfordshire village. Great Bourton is very popular with commuters, as Banbury Train Station is located only 4.7 miles away and can be reached by car in under 10 minutes. Fast train services take passengers to London in under an hour and to Oxford in under 20 minutes.
