Hayfield in Oxford

June 25, 2020

The flagship scheme from the UK’s Best Small Housebuilder - which is located in the South Oxfordshire village of Southmoor - is now 90 per cent sold. Called Hayfields, the expansive leafy development of 74 two to five-bedroom luxury homes has had a flurry of sales since the easing of the Covid-19 lockdown.

Located off Faringdon Road, the exclusive 11-acre development is characterised by an array of mature trees, which were once part of the extensive grounds of the former Fallowfields Hotel. Hayfields is now regarded as the best new address in the area.

A discount scheme for Key Workers has been very popular with local people looking to upgrade to a new home. All four-bedroom homes are sold out, with only a small selection of two, three and five-bedroom homes now remaining. Prices for the final phase range from £295,000 for two-bedroom designs, from £355,000 for spacious three-bedroom family homes and from £725,000 for stunning detached five-bedroom executive homes. Part-Exchange is available across the development.

Kelly Sharman, Sales and Marketing Director for Hayfield said: “The home designs at Hayfields are around 50 per cent larger than standard new houses. The generous dimensions, luxury specification and exceptional interior and exterior finish of these beautiful homes is striking a chord with local people. Southmoor is a very popular South-Oxfordshire village and as we ease our way out of the Covid-19 lockdown, the combination of scenic walks, good accessibility and high-quality local amenities – such as Millets Farm Centre – has never been more important.

“With only a small selection of two, three and five-bedroom executive homes now remaining, we are very busy working with prospective buyers and arranging viewings in full compliance with our robust Covid-19 Safe Operating Procedure. We urge anyone who is looking to move house to get in touch with us without delay to avoid missing out on the last few homes.”

With the development nearing completion, the 1,959 sq ft five-bedroom Cropredy show home is now available for sale. It has been styled and fully equipped by Berkshire-based Alexander James Interior Design.

The new homes at Hayfields have been designed to reflect architectural styles from the area, weaving in local materials and detailing. The result is a collection of characterful homes that complement their wider surroundings. Features that make each property so special include the timeless architecture and the superior specification. Features include Laufen bathrooms, underfloor heating, Hammonds wardrobes, Minoli ceramic tiles, heritage bronze ironmongery, bespoke kitchens with a comprehensive range of appliances and Farrow & Ball paint.

At the end of March, Hayfield secured a five-star customer satisfaction rating in the first year it has participated in the esteemed star rating scheme run by the Home Builders Federation (HBF).

At the 2019 WhatHouse? Awards, held late last year, Hayfield was crowned Best Small Housebuilder. It won the same accolade at the 2019 Housebuilder Awards, and also scooped the prize for Best Customer Satisfaction Initiative. The company has also won three Pride in the Job NHBC Awards and the prize for Best Family Home under £750,000 at the 2019 Evening Standard New Homes Awards.

Hayfields is open daily from 10am – 5pm, off Faringdon Road, Southmoor, OX13 5BH. In compliance with Hayfield’s Covid-19 Safe Operating Procedure, appointments must be made in advance. Call 0845 052 4764, or email
