Today’s families don’t just want to live, they want to live well – and they’d find it hard to find a better place to do that than at Burcote Park, in the village of Wood Burcote, near Towcester.
The area, where Redrow has two popular luxury developments, is nestled in the heart of South Northamptonshire, which has ranked in the Top 20 of best places to live in the latest Halifax Quality of Life Survey.
When compiling the list, the report took into account a number of important factors including low crime rate, life expectancy, employment rates and, for the first time, leisure facilities.
Halifax economist, Martin Ellis, explained this was vital “with more and more emphasis being placed on achieving a good work-life balance”. And he added: “This has had an impact on the rankings, especially at the top.”
Not surprisingly South Northamptonshire, which has its administrative headquarters in Towcester, took its place as one of the best places to live, making Burcote Park a more sought-after location than ever.
Tonia Tyler, sales director for Redrow, (South Midlands), said: “Burcote Park is a fabulous location with so much to offer to any homeowner, just outside the historic Roman market town of Towcester and surrounded by the most idyllic countryside.
“That said, it is also close to outstanding schools and the transport links could not be better, with direct trains to London in under an hour from Wolverton Station just a short drive away.”
And Tonia added: “Given that the report highlighted leisure facilities, where do we start? Both Silverstone and Towcester racecourses are on the doorstep for two very different types of racing, there’s golf at Whittlebury Park, swimming and fitness at Towcester Leisure or, if you want to take a more relaxed approach, there’s the Stocke Bruene Canal and even Salcey Forest and Stowe Gardens within easy reach for lovely walks.
“And, when that leaves home-owners hungry or in need of refreshment, there are many charming country pubs or superb restaurants to hand.”
Redrow has two stunning developments in Burcote Park, Ash Gardens which has a collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes available from £342,950; and its latest addition to the location, Oak View, with large and luxurious four and five-bedroom executive country homes, with five-bedroom homes currently available from £804,950.
Both developments sit in 59 acres of parkland with plenty of open space and groves of trees. All homes are designed with both style and practicality in mind, with open plan living spaces and today’s must-have en-suites; together with high quality fittings and finishes.
