These lovely serviced plots benefit from easy access by foot to two good schools and two good pubs.

Peaceys Orchard, Chalford

A development of 3 new houses, Peaceys Orchard sits towards the top of Coppice Hill and has fantastic views across the valley to Westley Farm in one direction and out towards Hyde in the other.   

Summerfield, Oakridge Lynch

A development of three new houses. Summerfield is a south-facing site with far-reaching views in the middle of Oakridge, a pretty Cotswold village within easy reach of Cirencester and Stroud, and with good amenities. The proposal has been granted planning permission and is now being released to the open market. 

Facilitated construction to ease the building process
