CUSTOM BUILD HOMES AT SPRINGFIELD MEADOWS
The developers, Ssassy, are committed to making Springfield Meadows an outstanding new development, with a focus on high quality design, place making and the highest standards of sustainability.
25 new homes are consented for this beautiful edge of village site just 7 miles from Abingdon and 11 miles from the centre of Oxford. At present, 16 plots offer custom build options for 2,3, 4 and 5 bed homes, whilst there are 9 Affordable Homes which are being designed and delivered to the same exemplary standards.
The homes sit in generously sized plots fronting onto a range of beautiful shared spaces that will include a wildflower meadow, orchard and pond, all designed to help to create a thriving community and to maximise biodiversity.
With the aim of creating a harmonious overall design, the layout and external appearance of all homes is pre-determined. Purchasers will be able to choose from different internal layouts on a range of house types, and from a wide range of specification items, to ensure that their new home is tailored to meet their own requirements. All homes will be designed to be warm in winter, cool in summer and a delight to live in all year round. The approach to design and the quality of the construction will minimise utility bills and reduce impact on the planet. The whole scheme will be delivered in line with the One Planet Living initiative.
Planning consent is in place and site works commenced in March 2019, with homes being ready for occupation through 2019 and 2020.

Springfield Meadows provides a superb combination of rural living with very easy access to village, town and city amenities. Southmoor and the adjoining villages of Longworth and Kingston Bagpuize have a range of amenities including nursery and primary school, shops, pubs and village halls. Abingdon, Wantage and Faringdon are the local towns and they offer a wide choice of retail and leisure options. The City of Oxford is easily accessible just 11 miles to the north-east.
The A420 runs to the north of Springfield Meadows and is the area’s main east-west link connecting to the M4 to the west and A34 to the east. Two local bus services serve stops on the Faringdon Road, 5 minutes’ walk north of the site, namely the S6 Swindon-Oxford bus service and the No. 15 service from Witney to Abingdon.
Springfield Meadows is in the north of the Vale of the White Horse and is close to the delights of both the River Thames and the Ridgeway. The site is reached via Bullockspits Lane, a By-way Open to All Traffic. To the south this lane gives access to a lovely rural hinterland ideal for walkers, cyclists and those who just appreciate the open countryside. The small village of Charney Bassett on the River Ock, with its historic Chequers Inn, is a gentle 2.5 mile walk or cycle away.

CUSTOM BUILD CHOICES AT SPRINGFIELD MEADOWS
Springfield Meadows is a fully consented development that has been designed to create a beautiful new residential community. The developers and their master architect have therefore determined the layout and the form and external appearance of all of the homes. Purchasers have a wide range of choice of sizes and house-types. Once the preferred plot has been selected, the purchaser gets to chose from different ground and first floor layouts, before selecting from a wide range of specification options.
BUILDING YOUR HOME
All of the infrastructure, including roads and services, will be pre-installed to ensure that purchasers have fully serviced plots ready for the construction of their home. Ssassy has appointed Greencore Construction as their preferred contractor. Greencore are Oxfordshire based and construct homes of the highest quality using their own patented and proven sustainable build-system.
It is possible for a purchaser to appoint another contractor, but there will be a requirement to deliver the home to the approved designs and sustainability standards to ensure that every home fits in with the vision for Springfield Meadows.
FINANCING YOUR CUSTOM BUILD
The payment process for a self or custom-built home is different to the purchase of a traditional new build property – which you pay for once it is built.
As your home at Springfield Meadows will be a bespoke design for you and your individual requirements, you will pay for your home at various stages of the build process. BuildStore Mortgage Services are on hand to arrange the most suitable funding option for you. As the UK’s leading self and custom build expert, they have financed over 20,000 building projects for people creating their own home.
