Local residents of Winterborne Kingston, near Blandford Forum were recently given the opportunity to see the brand new ‘Oakborne’ development at an open evening held by Wyatt Homes. The 18 high quality properties are due to launch on 2nd of September 2017 and will offer a range of detached and semi-detached houses and one-bedroom apartments, designed to be aesthetically pleasing whilst maintaining a rural character to complement the surrounding area.
“It was a great turn out and our many visitors were excited to see what will be on offer at Oakborne. We had such positive feedback from our guests who paid compliments to the bespoke design and individuality of the home at our latest development,” comments Annie Huddleston, Sales and Marketing Director of Wyatt Homes. “It was also an opportunity for us to get to know the ‘neighbours’ who themselves had the chance to speak with our friendly and helpful sales team. We have a lot of interest and are already selling off-plan as the first properties will be ready to move into for the Christmas period. We urge potential buyers to register their interest as soon as possible so as not to miss out on the opportunity to live in a beautiful, rural location,” said Annie Huddleston.
The attractive enclave of new properties will be situated on North Street, and its idyllic location is likely to prove highly popular with buyers. Many of the homes will have generously sized gardens, some including paddocks, with double garages on the four and five-bedroom homes and ample parking. The houses and apartments will be built in a mix of designs and materials, including brick, flint and colour washed render with clay tile and natural slate roofs, allowing for variety and interest that is locally distinctive and within a rural village context.
Oakborne will maintain many of the attractive rural features in and around the development. At its entrance, the wide verge along North Street will be retained as open space, with properties being positioned carefully around protected trees. The overall appearance will be of an amicable village street with gentle changes of direction and variable spaces between properties – many of which will benefit from fantastic open views.
Winterborne Kingston itself boasts a good local pub, well attended church, busy village hall with recreation ground and good local schools. Corfe Castle, Lulworth Castle and Lacey National Trust House near Wimborne are amongst the many historic buildings locally and there are many interesting little villages nearby, set in beautiful hidden valleys. The county town of Dorchester is just a 20 minute drive away and has a wealth of attractions including an excellent museum and a good mix of restaurants and shops, while the A31 is close by with road and rail links to Bournemouth, Poole and London.
