Bloor Homes has opened the doors to its Saunders’ Mead development in Priory Vale housing expansion area.
During the launch weekend at the end of January, home seekers received a warm welcome and guided tours of its new Melksham Special show home. “The launch event was a great success,” said Lorraine Palmer, Sales Director. “Everyone who attended felt that Saunders’ Mead offers winning traditional styles in an attractive setting.”
Situated in the Haydon End area of Priory Vale, Saunders’ Mead features an array of three, four and five-bed properties, and one and two-bed coach houses in a selection of styles.
“With such a great mix of properties on offer, it was a pleasure to roll out the red carpet for everyone,” said Sales Executive, Tracy Ockley, picture with colleague Karen Turner. “Saunders’ Mead sells itself. As a semi-rural development, it backs onto a beautiful bridle path and playing fields of the Orchid Vale primary school.”
Saunders’ Mead takes its name from Tom Saunders, a farmer, master-craftsman, builder and owner of Brook Farm, upon which the nearby North Swindon District Centre now stands. Tom was also Lorraine’s grandfather.
“He was well-known throughout the area; big, strong and, at times, quite strict,” she smiled. “When I was a child living in Gorse Hill, it seemed as if he lived miles away. In truth, it was only six miles, but it seemed further as we were travelling from town to the countryside. My first memories of him are feeling in awe of this larger-than-life character. But he was a gentle giant who was passionate about his farm.”
Years later, Brook Farm was sold and became livery stables, yet it retained its name. “My family still has firm roots in the area,” said Lorraine. “I live in Priory Vale, while my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren also reside here. We are living proof of Priory Vale’s close-knit and thriving community.”
“Saunders’ Mead highlight the lifestyles homebuyers can expect in a wonderful locations.”
