Newland Homes, the developer behind the Broad Blunsdon Heights scheme, has returned to the location with Skylark Meadow.

The new development, on Blunsdon High Street, will be launched with tailor-made personal appointments and an opportunity to try a wood-fired pizza from the showhome’s garden pizza oven, cooked by chef Ian from Coleshill Catering. 

Skylark Meadow consists of 37 three, four and five-bedroom homes, and the developer says it reflects the unique character of Broad Blunsdon on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Erica Povey, Field Sales Manager for Newland Homes, comments: “Skylark Meadow is a very different design aesthetic to Broad Blunsdon Heights, as we believe that each handpicked location warrants its own palette of materials and finishes.  

"Skylark Meadow is designed to reflect the character of its surroundings, so you’ll see glorious golden-coloured stone and architecture synonymous with the Cotswolds, plus beautiful brickwork, stone and render detailing.   

“Don’t be fooled by the classic design, though; these houses exceed Building Regulation requirements, having significantly enhanced renewable power with solar PV panels to detached homes.  

"Homes are also wired with provision for an electric car charging point.” 

There is also pre-installed superfast fibre broadband, described as a major benefit for home workers.

Prices start at £400,000, and those looking to purchase will benefit from a Stamp Duty holiday on homes up to the value of £500,000 and the Help to Buy incentive which is available on all new-build properties up to £600,000.

The scheme involves lending buyers up to 20 percent of the cost of their new home through an equity loan from the Government, which is interest free for the first five years.

Both schemes have a limited time window, as the Stamp Duty holiday ends in March and the eligibility criteria for Help to Buy is changing from spring. 

Broad Blunsdon Heights was the winner of ‘Best New Large Housing Development’ in the LABC Awards in 2019, which recognises excellence in external appearance and internal planning, layout and landscaping.   

Newland Homes Senior Sales Consultant Jayne Palmer doesn’t have far to travel to work, as she herself bought a property at Broad Blunsdon Heights, just across the road from Skylark Meadow.  

Jayne and her colleagues will be offering tailor-made tours of Newland Homes’ latest development from 11am to 5pm, seven days a week, commencing on Saturday 12 September.  

Visits can be booked by calling 01793 278101 and further information can be found at
