Family of four relocates from Hertfordshire to the Oxfordshire village of Great Bourton

A family of four is thrilled with their new home at Hayfield Views in the Oxfordshire village of Great Bourton.

The Carruthers family purchased a four-bedroom detached Shotteswell home at the delightful scheme, having relocated from Hertfordshire.

Hayley Carruthers said: “We wanted to say a great big thank you to the whole Hayfield team for all your help and support. We can’t thank you enough and we still can’t quite believe we have actually moved in! 

“We are very slowly getting settled and unpacked, already met a couple of lovely neighbours and whilst it still doesn’t feel quite real it absolutely feels like home. We know we wouldn’t have got the same level of help and support from any other developer the way Hayfield has been and for that we will be forever grateful.”

All 43 homes at Hayfield Views have now been matched with buyers. The multi-award winning site is the fastest-selling scheme from developer Hayfield, selling ahead of the build programme.

Located off Main Street, the scheme enjoys a prime location on the edge of the traditional village of Great Bourton, which has seen very little new development in recent years. It has attracted a mixture of buyers, including those relocating from Greater London, the Home Counties, elsewhere in Oxfordshire, as well as locals from Great Bourton and the surrounding villages.

In addition to the 43 family homes, Hayfield Views also incorporates a family play area and the spectacular new Bourtons Community Hall, which Hayfield constructed on behalf of The Bourtons Parish.

The houses and the Community Hall have been constructed using traditional materials, including ironstone bricks locally sourced from Oxfordshire-based Cotswold Natural Stone. The workmanship and build quality have ensured the development seamlessly blends into the traditional village setting.

In May, Hayfield scooped Best Family Home Under £750,000 at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2019 for the Bourton home at Hayfield Views. The judges remarked that they were genuinely blown away by the build quality, attention to detail and the array of features that Hayfield includes as standard, such as heritage bronze door furniture, underfloor heating, Roca/Laufen bathroom suites, Farrow & Ball paint, warming drawers and curved cabinets in the bespoke kitchens.

Hayfield was also recognised at the 2018 WhatHouse? Awards as one of the UK’s Best Small Housebuilders. 

Hayfield specialises in building luxury family houses and has six live sites located in prime locations in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Approximately 170 executive homes will be delivered by the firm over the next 12 months.
