Home of the Day – ‘The Dorchester’, Talbot Homes

Posted 30 September 2021 by Keith Osborne

Our current favourite home is ‘The Dorchester’, which is to be found at Talbot Homes' development Foxgrove, in Byfield…

The Foxgrove development in Byfield comprises just seven detached houses, each of them ‘The Dorchester’ house type which offers some 1,850 sq ft of living space and a high specification expected by discerning buyers of luxury family homes.

Plot 5 is one example of this three-storey house, and it sits in a quiet corner plot. Priced at £650,000, it is built with a striking champagne render and ironstone frontage property, complemented by the contemporary anthracite windows, and comes with a double car port, generous private garden.

Passing through the timber-framed porch, you enter into a large hallway which leads you through to an impressive kitchen/dining area, benefitting from its own utility room. The kitchens come in a Shaker style with bespoke colour schemes for each property, and quartz worktops and glass hob splashbacks. The kitchen islands provide lots of space to entertain the family or guests. The integrated AEG appliances include a touch-control five-zone induction hob and extractor hood, a double oven, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and there’s a free-standing wine cooler to all islands. The granite composite sinks come with individually chosen tap and handles. The utility room, with storage units matching those of the kitchen, is fitted for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Also on the ground floor are a separate living room, with a window at the front of the house and French doors to the rear garden, a cloakroom and a large cupboard under the stairs.

Off the first-floor landing is a dedicated study, which is a feature that has become a ‘must-have’ for home-working buyers these days. The family bathroom is also on this floor as well as three double bedrooms. Bedroom one has an en suite shower room and dressing area to complement the built-in wardrobes. On the top floor are two more double bedrooms and a separate shower room, as well as loft space for some more useful storage.

All the homes at Foxgrove come with either a single or double car port with electric car charging point, as well as a generous driveway. Prices currently range from £600,000 to £665,000.

Byfield is a sought-after village on the borders of south Northamptonshire, north Oxfordshire and south Warwickshire, popular because of its picturesque nature and rural feel. With such amenities as the medical centre, a warm and friendly primary school, the village store and post office – and a pub – it has lots you need on the doorstep. The village hall hosts many community activities and benefits from its own tennis club.

The area has many state and private schools, as well as a host of things to do such as sports clubs, horse racing and the cultural venues of places such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Banbury and Daventry. The M40, M1 and Chiltern Railway services from between Banbury and London Marylebone offer easy connections to a host of other towns and cities.
