Backhouse launches new show home in Moreton-in-Marsh with four sold on the opening weekend

Chippenham-based developer Backhouse has opened the doors to prospective buyers at its latest show home in Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire, and reserved four homes on the opening weekend.

The brand-new development is an exquisite new residential area situated on the edge of the vibrant market town in the Cotswolds and close to areas of outstanding natural beauty.

The collection of 67 three, four- and five-bedroom contemporary homes are all carefully designed by award-winning local architects, Clifton Emery Design.

The 2,118 square foot, five-bedroom show home, The Hampton, boasts a large open plan kitchen dining area with bifold doors onto the enclosed landscaped garden.

There is also a separate living room, boot room, utility room, cloak room and office for flexible working. Upstairs, there is a bathroom, and five bedrooms of which two benefit from en-suites.

Backhouse Moreton-in-Marsh has been designed to provide a sustainable neighbourhood, with air source heat pumps allowing occupants to benefit from green electricity tariffs.

There are electric vehicle charging points, cycle sheds and water butts for all dwellings, plus solar panels on selected plots.

The layout, architectural approach, house types, landscape, and highway design have been developed for the scheme with each aspect working towards creating a high quality, distinct development with a strong sense of place borne out of the local area.

Emily Adams, sales and marketing director at Backhouse, said: “We were delighted to launch the show home and reserve four homes over the weekend. We look forward to showing locals around The Hampton enabling them to really appreciate what we are building here in Moreton-in-Marsh.

“A standout feature of a Backhouse home is its focus on open plan living space with light being a major feature and customers who have visited have been very complimentary.

“We have stuck by our founding principles of home buyers deserving better, sensibly priced, stylish homes and providing smart living solutions. Backhouse is a design-led housebuilder focused on creating aspirational and desirable homes for customers to enjoy living in. Our thanks to Andrew Henry who have done a stunning job with the interiors in the show home.”

Backhouse has won a string of prestigious regional and national property awards for its previous development in Calne, its Highworth development has won a Pride in the Job award for the site manager and the ambition is to make Moreton Marsh another winning scheme.

Backhouse was born out of a desire to establish an innovative British housebuilder that could deliver new homes of outstanding design quality which respond to the needs of today’s lifestyles as well as delivering homes with more space, light and flexible living options re-defining what a home looks and feels like.

From its offices in Chippenham, Backhouse continues to build on its existing portfolio of five completed developments and seven further projects, at various stages, extending across the South of England, from Somerset and Wiltshire to The Cotswolds and Oxfordshire.

Prices start from £495,000.
