Woodland setting for 10 new luxury homes

THE Chilterns is a majestic landscape with a rich history that has helped it evolve into the attractive and sought-after location it is today.

In this special setting, leading luxury developer Millgate is launching a prestigious collection of new homes.

Ideally positioned to enjoy the many delights of rural South Oxfordshire, these 10 impressive detached homes at Hamilton Place are built to a level of luxury worthy of the many royals who have had connections with the local area over the years.

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Chilterns boasts beautiful green scenery scattered with pretty villages and is the first proper expanse of idyllic countryside reached when heading west out of London.

Its settlements have a host of connections with royalty going back centuries — not least Henley itself, with its famous Royal Regatta that has been held on the river since 1839.

Just a few miles away, Hamilton Place is nestled in a wooded valley close to the village of Checkendon and is set to become one of the most sought-after new addresses in the region.

Millgate sales and marketing director Jonathan Cranley said: “The Chilterns is a hugely attractive area for property hunters as it offers very pretty countryside and lovely villages but is still close to London.

“The area has a fascinating history and the homes we are building at Hamilton Place are designed in keeping with that heritage and to complement their rural setting.

“Buyers can rest assured that every home will be fit for a king, offering the level of luxury, style and attention to detail that Millgate is known for. We anticipate high levels of interest from buyers.”

Five of the 10 homes have just been released for sale, and as an extra incentive purchasers are currently being offered a year’s free membership of nearby Danesfield House — an award-winning spa that specialises in promoting wellbeing and relaxation.

With 10 properties in total, Hamilton Place will consist of eight five-bedroom houses, each with a double or triple garage and set in its own generous half-acre garden — plus two four-bedroom homes, each with a single garage, surrounded by peaceful woodland.

The properties are being built in the traditional Arts and Crafts style to sit nicely with their rural environs. However, the interior specifications will cater for the needs of modern living, with a contemporary classic style and opulent finishes.

Mr Cranley added: “Each of our new homes at Hamilton Place has been individually designed, offering the ultimate in space, quality and style, while providing the finest possible living environment and the perfect backdrop to an aspirational modern lifestyle.

“So we are delighted to not only offer homebuyers a beautiful new home but also a year’s free membership to the elite Spa Illuminata at Danesfield House, as it really does ensure that buyers can enjoy the level of luxury they deserve.”

Millgate says the first show home will open early next year, so put a date in your diary to see it.

Hamilton Place is less than a mile from Checkendon, a village steeped in ancient history and actually listed in the Domesday Book.

The wider area is littered with reminders of the history that has helped define the Chilterns — from Bronze Age barrows and Iron Age forts to medieval churches and 20th century military trenches.

Prices at Hamilton Place start at £1,200,000 for a four-bedroom property. For more information, call 0118 934 8075 or email sales@millgatehomes.co.uk
