Award-winning developer Burrington Estates has unveiled its first show home at the Hempton Gate development, located just a stone’s throw from the centre of the historic village of Deddington, about 6 miles south of Banbury in Oxfordshire.
Prospective buyers can now book a private appointment to view the four-bedroom detached show home, The Chesney, which has been stylishly dressed by the acclaimed interior designers Open Door Interiors.
The Hempton Gate development offers an exclusive collection of 14 two to four-bedroom homes and will provide its new residents with the best of well-connected contemporary living whilst remaining nestled within the quaint rural surroundings of Oxfordshire’s rolling hills.
With North Oxfordshire’s characteristic honey-coloured marlstone buildings and a busy marketplace at its heart, the historic village of Deddington benefits from easy access to amenities and transport links, making Hempton Gate the ideal location for a range of buyers.
In keeping with Deddington’s rural aesthetic, the show home features locally sourced timber and combines traditional external characteristics with a contemporary interior twist.
Commenting on her design approach for The Chesney, Interior Designer at Open Door Steph Clibbery explains: “After doing local research on Deddington’s historical roots, I was inspired to dress the home in a manner that showcased the heritage of the local area whilst also maintaining a stylish, contemporary feel.”
Upon entering this property, visitors step in a welcoming hallway fitted with a downstairs cloakroom and storage space ideal for family living. Following on, into the spacious triple-aspect family/dining room and kitchen, with bifold doors that maximise the light and airy open-plan layout.
Steph comments: “Ideal for relaxing, socialising or home working, this open plan space is dressed with versatility in mind and matches the calming leafy surrounds of Hempton Gate. Six chairs surrounding the large family dining table are a soft green hue that brings an elegant, earthy tone to the soft colour palette of the space.”
“Continuing this sense of tranquillity, a bespoke window seat between the kitchen and family room serves as the perfect location for peaceful moments with a rural outlook. The space will also benefit those who work from home, as an area sectioned with beading and wallpaper creates a quiet home office space.
“In the separate lounge, I opted for a more formal and traditional style in keeping with Deddington’s heritage. A traditional chimney breast is nestled between bespoke painted cabinets, which gives great character to the home. Lightly textured wallpaper also adds a warm atmosphere.”
Venturing upstairs, the home’s four bedrooms and family bathroom continue the same theme, providing a country feel with contemporary detailing.
Explaining her vision for the upstairs rooms, Steph continues: “Each room is styled differently, but by balancing classic soft tones with pops of coloured accents and a variety of textures, I was able to tie in the same smart, yet welcoming, feel into each room.
“In the master bedroom, equipped with its fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom, I chose a bespoke headboard in front of a textured back wall to add depth to the interior décor. Trimmed cushions and pinch pleated curtains add touches that nod to Deddington’s country roots whilst remaining on-trend”.
With four bedrooms on offer, including two children’s rooms, this home brims with the potential to be transformed and repurposed as the buyer sees fit.
John Scott, Sales and Marketing Director at Burrington Estates, comments: “We are thrilled to be launching our new show home at Hempton Gate, in the sought-after location of Deddington in north Oxfordshire.
“Our properties bring a distinct quality and specification to what is already a fantastic location to call home, as well as providing a variety of sustainable features to help residents live a greener lifestyle.
70 per cent of homes at Hempton Gate have already been reserved off-plan, and the scheme has been a great success; those interested should act quickly to visit the Showhome.’’
For a small town, Deddington offers a good range of day-to-day facilities, including local shops, cafes, two pubs and excellent education facilities. It can be easily reached from Hempton Gate via a new footpath link, which provides direct access to walks in the surrounding countryside.
A commute to London is simple, with trains from Banbury Station taking just 51 minutes into Central London on the reliable Chiltern Line, and for travel by car, the M40 is just a few miles away.
Prices for the homes at Hempton Gate will start from £410,000.
