Located on the edge of the Cotswolds just 12 miles from Oxford, Bellway’s Shepherds Walk development in North Leigh combines the very best of city and country living.

And with a selection of stylish new two-bedroom houses currently available, it is the perfect place for young professionals seeking to get onto the property ladder within easy travelling distance from the city.

These two-storey semi-detached homes feature contemporary open-plan layouts designed with modern living in mind and are ready to move into straight away.

Priced from £297,000, these new homes can be purchased with just a five per cent deposit when using the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme. The current scheme is open to first-time buyers and existing homeowners but will be changing from April 2021, when it will only be available to people buying their first home. Regional price caps will also be introduced.

Buyers looking for a two-bedroom house at Shepherds Walk can choose between the Almond and Olive house types.

The Almond, priced from £312,000, features an open-plan kitchen and dining area with integrated appliances and a separate living room. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom.

The Olive, available for £297,000, includes an open plan living and dining area with French doors leading to the garden, and a separate kitchen. The first floor has two bedrooms, one of which has an en suite.

Elaine Brown, Head of Sales for Bellway South Midlands, said: “The two-bedroom homes available at Shepherds Walk have already attracted many single people and young couples looking to move out of Oxford in search of their own place while still remaining close to the city.

Oxford Mail:

“These stylish and contemporary homes offer a convenient and affordable option for young professionals aspiring to get onto the property ladder in a location which offers easy access to Oxford for work and leisure.

“While Shepherds Walk is just over 30 minutes away by car from Oxford, the real attraction for commuters is Hanborough railway station, which is only a 10-minute drive away. From here, there are direct services to Oxford in 10 minutes, and London Paddington in just over an hour, so this development is also a great option for people who work in the capital.

“Another major draw of the development is its location on the edge of the Cotswolds, which offers various outdoor activities to enjoy, and numerous picture postcard towns and villages with country pubs, restaurants and coffee shops to visit.

Oxford Mail:

“As well as being close to Oxford, buyers at Shepherds Walk will enjoy the added convenience of being just over three miles from the attractive market town of Witney, which has a wide range of shopping, dining and leisure attractions. North Leigh itself also has a good selection of amenities, including pubs, a restaurant, post office and village store.”

A selection of three, four and five-bedroom houses are also currently available at Shepherds Walk, with prices ranging from £405,000 to £780,000.
