Unlike so many plain modern homes, the four bedroom detached Stratford boasts a traditional Arts and Crafts inspired frontage finished with craftsmanship and care, including bay windows and a roofed porch.
Yet behind its impressive exterior architecture, this home delivers a design aimed squarely at modern family life. Combining the traditional kitchen with the dining room creates a vibrant open plan space, which forms the heart of the home. Fitted to the highest standard, with premium appliances, it has space to spare for even the largest of families. Double width patio doors bring the outside in, with a wall of glass flooding the room with light all year round. The ground floor also features a separate lounge and downstairs cloaks.
The curving staircase and linear landing leaves maximum room for the four bedrooms above, including two doubles and two singles, with the master bedroom boasting a superbly specified en-suite shower room.
Book your viewing of the Stratford today and see for yourself how smart planning can make the most of every inch in your home.
About the DevelopmentAnyone who has driven down the M1 in the past will remember the tall forest of radio masts that was once Rugby Radio Station – the largest transmitting station in the world. Today this prime site is set to become a major new development, and already has its own primary school, pub restaurant and community venue, a ten minute drive to the Elliots Field shopping centre and will soon have its own high school giving residents a distinct advantage in this underserved town.
Located just 3miles east of Rugby town centre, and within easy reach of a choice of Ofsted ‘outstanding’ schools, Houlton has excellent road and rail connections across Central England and beyond.
The development will bring a choice of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes, both from our award winning Heritage Collection and in premium designs. Register your interest today and we’ll keep you right up to date as new plots are released and new show homes opened. Remember, it only takes a 5% deposit to secure one of these new homes near Rugby with Help to Buy, and with Help to Sell from Redrow it’s just as easy to find a buyer for your old place.
AmenitiesThere is a local CoOp convenience store just a mile and a half away from the development, with a choice of supermarkets close by in the town centre. Plans for the development include a wide range of local shops and stores placed conveniently close to home.
As the development grows, it will also have its own, purpose-built GP surgery to serve the residents. In the meantime, you can register with Clifton Road Surgery (Sat Nav CV21 2PN, call 01788 550291). There is a choice of dentists in the town, with Rugby Dental Practice the closest surgery currently accepting new NHS patients (Sat Nav CV21 3QF, call 01788 552211).
DiningRugby is renowned for its variety of fine gastro pubs and restaurants, with no less than 155 places to eat listed on trip Advisor. These are led by Café Vin Cinq, Lazzolli Italian, Bacco Lounge and On The Rocks steakhouse. The pub grub of The Huntsman, The Bull Inn and The Merchants Inn are also highly recommended.
Within walking distance you’ll find the development’s own eatery, The Tuning Fork, along with The Waterside pub and the Canalchef café on the canal bank, and the Exotica Bengal Cuisine and The Bell pub in nearby Hillmorton.
EducationWe all want the best for our children’s education, and at Houlton, you couldn’t ask for better. The development already has its own primary school, St Gabriel’s CofE Academy and there is a choice of ‘outstanding’ rated primary and secondary schools also close by, including Hillmorton Primary and Clifton upon Dunsmore CofE Primary for younger ones, and Lawrence Sheriff School and Rugby High School for older pupils. The world-famous Rugby School offers a high quality independent alternative.
As the development progresses, there will be a further primary school built on site, along with a brand new, multi-million pound secondary school, from the Transforming Lives Educational Trust which has a reputation for creating Ofsted ‘outstanding’ schools.
For stay at home students, the universities of Warwick, Coventry and Leicester are all within commuting distance, saving a fortune on halls.
LeisureRugby has all the leisure facilities you would expect from a large town, from the local Rugby Golf Course, close to the development, to the striking new Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre offering a huge choice of sports. The town is also famous for its great selection of pubs and restaurants making for a great night out. You can enjoy live entertainment at Rugby Theatre or catch the latest blockbusters at the Cineworld multi-screen cinema. You can even trace the history of the game that was born in the town at the Rugby Football Museum.
Closer to home the development boasts a popular community venue, The Barn, which hosts a variety of events. You can get back to nature with a stroll through the green corridors of the development or along the banks of the Oxford Canal, past the twin locks, while the little ones will enjoy the state of the art play park, or a ride on the model steam trains at Rainsbrook Valley Railway.
ShoppingRugby has been a focus for shopping since the market first began back in 1235. The market is still held every week on Monday, Friday and Saturday, with a monthly farmers’ market on the last Thursday of the month.
Rugby Town Centre offers an extensive range of shops based around the Clocktowers Shopping Centre, with a large pedestrianised area around High Street and Sheep Street.
For an even bigger shopping experience, both Birmingham’s famous Bullring and the flagship stores of London’s Oxford Street are under an hour away by train.
TransportRugby enjoys a superb central position, with easy access to road and rail links. The M1 is just a couple of miles away at junction 18, with the M6 just five miles to the north and the M45 to the south. The A5 also runs close to the development, with the A14 accessible at the nearby Catthorpe Interchange. Crick is around four miles, Coventry 16miles and Northampton 20miles. The town centre is just three miles away, with a brand new link road planned to make that journey even quicker.
Rugby Station lies on the West Coast mainline with regular services to London Euston in under an hour and Liverpool in just an hour and a half. Local trains to Coventry take just over ten minutes with Birmingham just over half an hour away.
