Carefully designed to blend in to this characterful village
Dating back to Roman times and once home to Wind in the Willows author Kenneth Grahame, Blewbury is a thriving village and is perfectly positioned less than 10 minutes from Didcot Parkway (44 minutes to London Paddington) and 5 minutes from the A34 (Oxford 30mins, Reading 30mins).
Carefully designed to blend in to this characterful South Oxfordshire village, Westbrook Farm echoes the original Georgian farm with a new Georgian-style Farmhouse and three new, timber clad, barn-style homes set in large gardens.
The new homes will incorporate all the usual Sweetcroft touches and combine quality craftsmanship with the latest sustainable construction materials. The individual character, high standard of workmanship and painstaking attention to detail of a Sweetcroft Home show through from the moment you step over the threshold.
The beautiful homes are designed to perfectly suit modern family life and provide the space you need to grow over the years, with well proportioned entertaining and family spaces, good-sized gardens and beautifully fitted bathrooms and ensuites; all the showers are wet room-style, with large glass panels to add a touch of luxury to your morning shower.
We know how important it is to spill out into the garden when the days are warm. That’s why we install either bifold doors or French doors in all our properties. Each house benefits from super-fast fibre optic broadband and has a separate office – an essential now more people are choosing to work from home.
Building high quality homes with the utmost care
At Sweetcroft Homes we recognise the environmental issues that the planet is facing and acknowledge that we have a responsibility to future generations. We are constantly striving to improve our designs and construction techniques to build beautiful homes that are future-proof and make as little environmental impact as possible.
We have been crafting beautiful family homes in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties for more than 20 years, quietly building a solid reputation as one of the region’s premier bespoke house builders. We specialise in creating unique, personal homes in highly desirable locations that are designed for today but fit for the future.
We know that our developments stand out from the crowd in every respect: starting with the creativity of the design, through the careful construction stages to the way we ensure a meticulously executed level of finish.
At the edge of the Downs
Blewbury is a “spring line” village which sits at the foot of the chalk hills of the North Wessex Downs. Its attractive and unusual streets wind between ancient thatched houses surrounded by the village’s unique “cob” walls and are interwoven with the many pretty streams which emerge from the base of the hills. The village was once home to Kenneth Grahame, author of The Wind in the Willows.
Good transport links
Blewbury is in a quiet setting, but close to the A34 and is in an excellent location, within easy reach of many premium employers such as the Harwell Campus, Milton Park and Oxfordshire’s Science Parks. Didcot Parkway Station, just 10 minutes’ drive, is served by regular, fast trains to Paddington, the West and the Midlands. The A34 links easily to Oxford, the M4 to London and Bristol, and the M40 to the Midlands.
A great choice of schools
Oxfordshire has a wide range of excellent state and independent schools, including Didcot Girls’ School (Ofsted ‘outstanding’) and St Birinus (Ofsted ‘good’) in Didcot, several independent schools in Abingdon, including Abingdon School and Radley College, and Oxford itself, with Magdalen College School, Headington Girls and The Dragon School among many options. The closest primary school is in South Moreton, rated ‘good’. Other independent schools in the area include The Oratory, Cranford House, Moulsford, Shiplake College and Pangbourne College.
