In making their decision in this hotly contested category, the judges consider the quality of design, value for money, use of space, energy efficiency, location, architecture and quality of finish. The winning development must also cater for a diverse range of ages and show strong design and thoughtful planning in being set in a prime location and providing a high quality of living for residents.
Cotswold Gate certainly meets the criteria. Of course, the development has a superb location, surrounded by scenic countryside and less than a mile from Burford’s picturesque High Street. The development itself is also exceptional. Designed for the over 55s, the exclusive collection of elegant, energy efficient houses and apartments are arranged in three courtyard settings each with views over the landscaped, fully maintained, communal gardens.
Each new home provides plenty of light-filled living space and a terrace, balcony, private garden or combination of these as well as allocated parking. A full complement of high-quality kitchen appliances, vanity units and mirrors in the bathrooms and en-suites, fitted wardrobes to two bedrooms and flooring, including high quality carpeting throughout all make it so much easier when moving in.
As an added benefit, the new homes carry the Beechcroft Healtihouse™ brand – with a host of features and fittings designed to promote a healthier living environment. Equally important, in these days of high energy costs, all the new homes are energy efficient – your home will be warm and cosy and you’ll save on your energy bills.
At Cotswold Gate, the communal facilities impressed the award judges. There’s a comfortable residents’ lounge with an honesty bar and a helpful Estate Manager, who takes responsibility for organising the cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas and the upkeep of both the communal and private gardens. When friends and family come to stay, home owners are able to book a luxurious guest suite and there’s a free shuttle bus service to take residents to town or further afield.
Show homes are available to view at Cotswold Gate and prices at the development start from £385,000. For further information, please visit the website on www.beechcroft.co.uk or call Beechcroft’s sales team from 10 am to 5 pm, Tuesday to Saturday inclusive on 01993-688342.
