‘Home from home’ at Abingworth Meadows

‘Home from home’ at Abingworth Meadows

“It’s like coming home,” said Ruth White, sales consultant at the new Abingworth Meadows development in Thakeham.  “I used to live in Thakeham many years ago when my family were young and we had four very happy years here. The village is unique so it’s lovely to be back!”

Ruth and her colleague, Fred Aitkenhead, are already welcoming new residents to the village with the sale of the first homes at Abingworth Meadows, the landmark development by Oakford Homes.  The first four and five bedroom houses were released for sale this month with buyers starting to secure their homes alongside the new cricket pitch.

The pitch forms an integral part of the development along with a pavillion, changing facilities, two football pitches, a village shop, community centre and pre-school.

“I think the team at Oakford Homes have thought of absolutely everything!” Ruth added. “With the interiors, I love the way the big glass doors downstairs let so much light filter through the house and the fabulous, airy hallways have been remarked on by many of our visitors.”

The show home is an ‘Edwin’ house design, featuring two spacious, double aspect reception rooms together with an open plan kitchen/family room which has twin sets of doors opening to the garden to provide a light, bright living space.  

The specification is high, such as the range of Smeg kitchen appliances which include a combination microwave and five ring gas hob, while a Smeg washing machine and tumble dryer are ready for use in the separate utility room. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms two of which have ensuites with contemporary walk-in showers.

“Construction is well underway and the first properties will be ready in coming weeks so there is already a lot to see here,” adds Ruth. “It’s lovely to be part of this regeneration of Thakeham and in time to welcome new people who will be calling it ‘home’.”

Current prices at Abingworth Meadows range from £705,000 to £995,000 and the show home is open daily between 10am and 5pm (thakeham@oakfordhomes.co.uk) or for more information, contact the Sales Office on 01798 879140.
