Hills Homes The Paddocks


Award-winning developer Hills Homes has launched its new development, The Paddocks in Blunsdon, with a successful event that saw five reservations secured within just a few hours.

Five plots released for sale were secured last weekend at a launch event hosted by Hills Homes and Richard James estate agents. There are some plots still available in the first phase of release, with more homes becoming available soon.

The sought after development consists of attractive two, three and four-bedroom homes which are built to a high specification and perfect for first time buyers, couples and families.

The Paddocks comes after the award-winning success of Hills Homes’ Hillside development which was completed in 2019.

The Paddocks is located on the rural edge of Blunsdon - a charming and historic village located between two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty: The Cotswolds and the North Wessex Downs.

A previous winner of the CPRE Wiltshire Best Kept Village competition and a shortlisted finalist for the same competition again this year, Blunsdon is a popular village with a thriving community and a variety of local amenities including a community-run shop, a village hall, a doctor’s surgery, an excellent choice of schools in the area, plus a recreation ground for sports clubs.

Nick King, group director at Hills Homes, said: “The Paddocks provides beautiful homes, with high-quality fittings and features in each room and especially in the kitchens, bathrooms and en-suites.

"There are five different house styles, with a mix of traditional red brickwork, stone and render with complementary detailing, all designed to reflect the character of the development’s surroundings.”

“Our previous development, Hillside, in Blunsdon won the Best New Large Housing Development award from Swindon Borough Council in 2020 and was shortlisted for a West of England LABC Building Excellence Award in the same year. Both awards recognise excellence in internal home layouts and a development’s planning, external appearance and landscaping, which Hills Homes endeavours to provide at all its property developments.”

For those who are working from home, each house will benefit from fibre optic broadband connection and the thoughtfully-designed layouts with spacious rooms are perfect for modern, multi-functional living. One of the house styles, The Durrington, provides a dedicated study offering the ideal home office.

The Paddocks is being marketed by Richard James estate agents.
