Countryside Properties has successfully launched a new show village consisting of five beautifully furnished show houses, all with landscaped gardens, at The Thatchams in Priors Green, Takeley, Essex. Five homes have sold in the first week. The variety of property available for sale, with two, three, four and five bedroom houses, allows most home purchasers to find their ideal new home. With prices ranging between £250,000 and £500,000, there is something to meet most budgets.
Countryside Properties has pioneered the show village concept to allow visitors to experience the actual atmosphere of the development. At The Thatchams the variety of homes available to view means that potential purchasers can understand what it is like to live there and compare each design of house to see what suits them best. The five new show homes at The Thatchams offer an opportunity for customers to see exactly what they will be buying. A visit to the show village is the best way for visitors to understand what the homes will be like.
The externals of the homes are traditionally designed but all offer contemporary high quality interiors boasting a range of features. The interiors of the show homes were designed by Mandi Boydell of JSP Interiors Ltd and Helen Fewster and Rebecca Tucker of Suna Interior Design Ltd. Helen Fewster, said: “Our designs bring a distinctly contemporary feel to luxurious, yet traditional family homes. By using elements such as contemporary banquette seating in the kitchen, offset by classic Charles Eames Eiffel chairs, we have shown that traditional doesn’t necessarily mean a pastiche of vernacular styles. We have focussed on particular features such as the vast master bedroom in the four bedroom Chamberlain house design.”
Mandi Boydell added: “Countryside Properties’ homes are a joy to work with and make ideal family homes. Our designs are in classic modern style, with a distinctly patriotic edge, though our design for the two bedroom ‘Maynard’ is aimed at a young couple wishing for sharp, crisp design with high gloss finishes. We have kept the interiors contemporary with a Wii which can be used by all the family.”
The Thatchams combines the comforts of a contemporary new home with the benefits of “village” life. Well situated within the rural environment of Priors Green and with open green spaces, open parkland and tree-lined avenues, this thriving new community provides an ideal environment for growing families and offers an increasing range of facilities including a children’s nursery and a community centre. There is also a brand new primary school opening in 2012.
Countryside Properties’ divisional managing director for New Homes and Communities, Tony Travers, said: “At the Thatchams, Countryside Properties is building on home ground. We have been based in Essex for more than half a century and are a trusted name in the county. Our new show village at The Thatchams shows how we can build a new community that really works and that gives our purchasers a strong sense of belonging. We want our customers to have a pride in their homes and their surroundings.”
