Ideally situated on the edge of the historic town of Hardwicke, this thoughtfully designed collection of 80 two, three and four-bedroom houses is the perfect choice for buyers seeking a home that offers the best of town and country living. The first homes will be ready to move in to from summer 2018, and many homes are available to buy using the Help to Buy scheme.  

A four-bedroom showhome, The Caldwick, is open for viewings at The Ridings’ neighbouring phase, Hunts Grove Gate. This spacious family home features an open plan kitchen and family area, as well as an expansive living room and separate dining room. Upstairs, the main bedroom includes a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, along with three additional bedrooms and an additional en-suite. 

Homes at the Ridings are bright, spacious and beautifully finished throughout. Open plan Moores kitchens with Bosch appliances provide the perfect space for relaxing with friends and family. Bathrooms will be fully fitted with crisp white Roca sanitaryware and enjoy a clean, sleek finish with Porcelanosa tiling and heated towel rails.

For first time buyers and second steppers looking to climb the property ladder in Gloucestershire, many homes at The Ridings are available using the Help to Buy scheme. The scheme enables potential homebuyers to secure their home with just a five per cent deposit. Buyers are also entitled to a government loan for 20 per cent of the property price*, whilst the remaining 75 per cent is covered with a mortgage. 

The Ridings at Hunts Grove benefits from plenty of green open spaces and a picturesque rural backdrop, allowing residents to enjoy the great outdoors and explore the local countryside. Once completed, Hunts Grove will offer residents a community centre, a convenience store and shops right on their doorstep. Furthermore, the development is close to plenty of local amenities, including schools for all ages, and country pubs in the neighbouring towns and villages. 

The Ridings at Hunts Grove also has excellent transport links to the M5, giving residents easy access to neighbouring towns and cities. Gloucester is less than a 20-minute drive away, and residents can reach Cheltenham in just 25-minutes by car. Bristol and Worcester are also close by, ensuring Hunts Grove offers a central location for residents working across the South West region.

Sandra Dixon, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson South West, said: “The Ridings is the latest addition to our popular Hunts Grove development which has been highly sought after thanks to its fantastic location, enabling residents to enjoy the very best of town and country living. These stylish homes are the perfect choice for families and professional couples and we anticipate they will be highly popular. We look forward to welcoming our first residents later this year.”
