Nestled away in the tranquil rural village of Swallowfield sits Balcombe Retreat, a new exclusive gated community of just four, five-bedroom family homes.
Surrounded by breathtaking countryside, residents will enjoy the tranquillity of the development’s private wildflower meadow and fishpond, which is home to a family of ducks.
Individually and human-centrically designed, these impressive homes are equally as attractive as the grounds. Built to an exceptional standard using traditional solid wall methods, including wet plastered walls which are much easier to fix to, each home at Balcombe Retreat has been carefully constructed with attention to the finest of details.
Contrasting the traditional build, the homes are fitted with the latest home technology. Integrated Wi-Fi, CAT-6 wiring, electric car charger points, air con, video entry system and CCTV are just a few of the tech features you’ll love.
Set over three floors, each of the four property designs include two reception rooms, an impressive fully fitted kitchen with wine cooler, utility room and a spacious home office. All the homes also have a huge games room on the top floor – perfect for entertaining.
All the homes also have bi-folding doors opening to the large, west facing back gardens which overlook the beautiful private wildflower meadow. The ideal place to relax after a long day and lose yourself in the beauty of nature.
Balcombe Retreat offers a luxury lifestyle both inside the home and out – with the world-renowned Nirvana Spa and the celebrated fine dining restaurant, L’Ortolan, both in close proximity. The prestigious Heckfield Place hotel which is surrounded by 400 acres of grounds and Stratfield Saye, a house steeped in history and open for visitors several weeks of the year, are also within two miles of the development.View the plots
With a private wildflower meadow inside the development, you don’t need to go far to admire the spectacular countryside Balcombe Retreat is surrounded by.
As you stroll down the quiet country roads, surrounded by lush green fields, to the charming village of Swallowfield, it’s easy to forget you’re just over 10 minutes away from the vibrant town of Reading.
The picturesque village has a delightful collection of charming cottages adorned with vibrant floral displays, adding a splash of colour to the village’s quaint architecture. You will discover hidden gems at every turn, including charming tea houses offering freshly baked scones and traditional pubs like the George & Dragon, locally known for its exceptional food.
Swallowfield is also rich in history, with the local church, All Saints, originally built in 1256. The Grand House in Swallowfield Park was built in 1689 by the 2nd Earl of Clarendon, Henry Hyde, uncle to Queen Anne. The land is now owned by Farley Estates and local families can walk through the estate along the River Blackwater and the tree lined lanes on the estate.
For families, Swallowfield is the perfect place to call home. Rolling fields allow ample space for young children to play and fall in love with the beauty of the countryside. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to schooling, with many highly rated schools for children of all ages in and around the village.
Commuters will also rejoice, as this countryside development also offers easy access to both the M3 and M4, as well as excellent access to the city via local stations, Reading and Wokingham which are both under a 15minute drive away.
Swallowfield’s captivating beauty, excellent local amenities, and transport links make this tranquil village the perfect place to call home.
