Head to the villages for lifestyle and better value

A collection of five detached village homes, each bearing a Hampshire village name, conjures up exactly what an exclusive development at Medstead is all about. The lifestyle at this idyllic village location includes countryside walks, a real sense of community with numerous active clubs and organisations, an array of local shops on the doorstep yet with the added benefit of Four Marks, Alresford and Alton all nearby. The good road network around the village means there is quick access to other larger centres and there is a mainline station at Alton providing a good service into London.

Those who have visited the site have remarked that the homes are delightfully bright and give a great sense of quality living space and the overall specification and finish is most impressive. It is easy to imagine a country lifestyle combined with the convenience and style of a modern home. Another factor is the undoubted value for money with so much more house here than, for example, in central Winchester or Alresford.

This is the latest project by Hazeley Developments and the usual careful design, superb specification tailored to each home and traditional craftsmanship have all been employed to great effect. Each house is different with its own individual character but with a common theme running throughout of a wonderful light-filled, spacious interior, which embraces sustainability in materials and construction methods, resulting in highly desirable homes that are a joy to live in. 

Kitchens include a full range of integrated appliances and all extend into a fabulous conservatory style space with ample room for dining or relaxing, and glazed doors to the gardens. This will be the hub of each home. 

Four double bedrooms on the first floor are accompanied by en suites and bathrooms, each with contemporary, sleek porcelain tiling and quality fittings. 

Living on the edge of the countryside the generous rear gardens open out onto a rural vista and will really come into their own when the summer returns with large, beautifully paved terraces, leading onto lawns, with hedges to the boundaries.

Careful positioning has maximised space between the houses and each has at least one garage with additional parking.

Jonathan Humphrey of Hazeley Developments says: “The show home demonstrates how well the layouts work with the open plan glazed area of the kitchen creating a distinctive feature in each house, providing superb, light filled space suitable for a variety of uses. The underfloor heating, and areas for dining furniture and sofas, make it the room of choice throughout the day.”

The houses are competitively priced ranging from The Bartley at £695,000. The show home is available for week day or weekend appointments and further information is available from Savills on 01962 834045.
