Feature Development – Foxgrove, Byfield

Posted 21 July 2021 by Keith Osborne

Foxgrove, from Talbot Homes, comprises just seven five-bedroom detached executive homes in the Northamptonshire village...

The WhatHouse? team has taken a close look at Foxgrove, a boutique development of just seven executive homes in the sought-after Northamptonshire village of Byfield.

Byfield is particularly rated for its picturesque nature and rural feel and this is used at Foxgrove to provide residents with some delightful view of the surrounding countryside. In addition, the village has valued amenities including a medical centre, a primary school, and the village store and post office. There’s also a pub, The Cross Tree Inn, great for a social time meeting friends and neighbours. There’s also a tennis club and football/cricket field.

Byfield is within a 15-minute drive of Daventry, Southam and Banbury, while a little further afield are Northampton, Milton Keynes, Royal Leamington Spa and Rugby, making the village a great base for convenient trips whether for business or pleasure.

The local area has a whole variety of facilities for sport and exercise, from its countryside footpaths and bridleways to equestrian centres, golf courses and indoor sports centres. For schooling, there are a number of independent schools for all ages to consider at the easily reached towns and cities, including big names such as Stowe and Rugby.

All seven homes at Foxgrove are variations of a house type called ‘The Dorchester’ with brick and stone exteriors. This double-fronted home offers over 1,850 sq ft of living space, set over three storeys. Off the hallway to one side is the living room, with a window at the front of the house and French doors to the rear garden. On the other side is the triple-aspect kitchen/dining room with feature island worktop/units and its own doors to the garden. This comes with a utility room to help de-clutter the main room. A downstairs WWC and a large cupboard under the stairs completes the ground floor.

The DorchesterOff the first-floor landing is a feature that has become a must-have for many house-hunters these days – a dedicated study that will be cherished by home-workers. 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 some loft space for some more useful storage. Homes 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.

There’s an impressive specification to every home at Foxgrove. 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.

Porcelanosa ceramic wall and floor tiles complement the contemporary sanitaryware used in all bathrooms, shower rooms and en suites.

There’s a wood-effect flooring finish to the hallway, kitchen, WC and store cupboards and Dublin Heather Pearl carpet to the lounge, stairs, landing and all bedrooms.
