Show Home Launching In Great Chesterford This Weekend

Posted 22 September 2023 by Helen Christie

Hill is set to launch a new four-bedroom show home at Chesterford Meadows on Saturday 23 September…

WhatHouse? Award-winning housebuilder The Hill Group has confirmed it will launch a new four-bedroom show home, The Farmhouse, at its village development, Chesterford Meadows, on Saturday 23rd September. 

Located in the picturesque village of Great Chesterford in northern Essex, the development launched two show homes earlier this year. Now, its new house type will provide homebuyers with another opportunity to experience the lifestyle on offer at Chesterford Meadows.

Chesterford Meadows is offering a collection of 46 homes, ranging from two-bedroom bungalows to two- to five-bedroom houses. The variety of property sizes and layouts means there is something to suit every buyer.

Having purchased a two-bedroom house at Chesterford Meadows, Mr and Mrs Versic were one of the first purchasers to move into the development, Mrs Versic explains: “We really love Cambridge and after living near the centre, were keen to find a home just outside of the city, where we could enjoy the surrounding countryside but still access everything Cambridge has to offer easily.  We had viewed other properties by The Hill Group and were impressed with the style and approach Hill was taking towards urban living and customers' needs. We found Chesterford Meadows online and we were on site with Alan from the sales team in less than an hour, and the rest is history! It is exactly what we wanted; a home in the countryside, within a small community, peaceful, green, with a lot of outdoor opportunities, and we have the historic town of Saffron Walden just minutes away. Simply ticks all the boxes.”

The interior design of the show home is being delivered by Artspace Interior Design. Hill has designed homes to be spacious and open plan, keeping flexible family lifestyles in mind. The living space flows into the kitchen and dining areas and then through into the rear garden, promoting a connected, sociable lifestyle with room to spend time together as well as unwind.

Warm and welcoming tones set the feel for the home's interior, with soft neutrals plus a touch of glass and gold to elevate the finish. Sleek materials and fabrics create a lovely sense of sophistication, from the rich blue velvet of the curtains and dining chairs to the large wooden dining table and warm wood-effect hard flooring. In the principal bedroom upstairs, the ivory-upholstered bed base is beautifully complemented by a gold console table and grey velvet occasional chair. Bathrooms and cloakrooms are warm and elegant, with a sleek, contemporary design. A mix of feature lighting, table lamps and downlights provide a cosy, comforting glow throughout.

Sophie Cottrell, senior interior designer at Artspace Interior Design, comments: “Artspace Interior Design had the pleasure of creating a warm and welcoming four-bed family home at Chesterford Meadows. The inviting colour palette of soft neutrals, accented with blush, mulberry and indigo blue creates a sense of calmness and tranquillity. The use of brass adds a touch of elegance and light wood furniture adds warmth. Taking inspiration from the local countryside, we have incorporated a bespoke wallpaper in the living room that compliments the surrounding village and landscaping.”

By blending the relaxed vibe of village life with contemporary chic, the show home perfectly reflects its village setting. The peaceful village is close to Cambridge (15 minutes by train/20 by car), so that residents can enjoy both the quiet of the local area and access to a world-famous city, within easy reach. London, too, is just over an hour away by train.

Rebecca Littler, group sales and marketing director at The Hill Group, comments: “From the location to the properties themselves, everything about Chesterford Meadows has been meticulously designed, hence it is no surprise that we are already seeing keen interest in these new homes. This is a perfect location for family living, with plenty of scope for enjoying time outdoors in nature, while also providing easy access to good schooling and the economic benefits associated with being close to a major city. We are delighted that the new show home will provide prospective buyers with a first-hand glimpse of this idyllic village lifestyle.”
