About Oak View

Part Exchange

Mulberry Homes presents an exclusive collection of elegant 3, 4 and 5 bedroom family-sized homes designed in a variety of styles to sit comfortably into the local environment, to provide the ultimate rural lifestyle.

Located close to the very centre of England, the village of Appleby Magna is mid-way between Birmingham, Leicester and Derby.

Appleby Magna is a quintessential English village set in the beautiful rolling Leicestershire countryside, yet just a mile from the convenience of the M42.


With its own post office and general store, several quaint pubs; the Black Horse, the Crown Inn and further south in Appleby Parva, the Appleby Inn; and a church dating back to the 14th century, it retains its historic charm with a mixture of old and more recent housing, it is highly regarded as a very desirable and pleasant place to live. Village life is enhanced by a number of clubs and societies including the cricket club, football club, a scout group and its own village website.

The centre of the village around Church Street and Mawby’s Lane boasts some charming buildings of note. The Moat House was originally constructed as the manor house shortly after the Norman conquest in 1066. Until the 16th century it was the home of the wealthy de Appleby family. Sir Edmund fought in the Battle of Crecy in 1346. Between the house and the Church is an ancient stone dovecote, enlarged when the house was built, but it is believed to have Saxon origins. Misses Moore’s Alms Houses, established in 1839, stands proudly adjacent to the Church of St Michael and All Angels. Neighbouring villages and towns - Measham, Tamworth and Ashby-de-la-Zouch provide alternative venues for shopping and dining. Nearby Market Bosworth is an architecturally picturesque town steeped in history - being close to the site of the last famous battle of the Wars of Roses, at which Richard III lost his life.


The local primary school (Ofsted rating : ‘Outstanding’ at last inspection) is sited at The Sir John Moore School Building, which also the venue for many local events and activities, a museum and heritage centre. Local landowner Sir John Moore was Lord Mayor of London in 1681 and wishing to use his wealth to benefit his home county, he financed the building of a school next to his family estate built in 1697. The building, based on an original design by Sir Christopher Wren, is Grade I Listed and now in the care of the Sir John Moore Foundation.


The new homes at Oak View, Appleby Magna benefit from being just under a mile from Junction 11 of the M42 from Birmingham and Tamworth, where it meets the A42 giving direct access by car to Nottingham and the M1, and the A444 to Derby.

The M42/A42 also affords direct access to both East Midlands and Birmingham International airports. The nearest main line railway stations are at Tamworth and Burton Upon Trent.

What Is Help to Buy?

Help to Buy is a government-backed initiative to help people buy a home. It's open to homebuyers (both first-time buyers and home movers) in England who can provide a 5% deposit and is available on homes valued up to £600,000. There are two options - equity share (only available on new build homes).

What Is Part Exchange?

Part Exchange is offered by many housebuilders to help homeowners to buy a new home. Most schemes work by offering a price for your existing home based on an independent valuation - you benefit by having a cash buyer, no onward chain and you can move out of your old home and straight into your new one.

About Mulberry Homes

Based in Northamptonshire, Mulberry Homes was launched in 2011. Led by Stewart Penney and Adam Norton, the company builds new homes in the East Midlands and northern Home Counties.

Rather than building large communities, it specialises in small, individual developments, and designs homes that will appeal to a range of buyers and budgets, including first-time buyers, downsizers and growing families.

The housebuilder puts sustainability and environmental responsibility at the front
