Article image Worcestershire homebuyers have wasted no time in making the move to St James Mead in Badsey, the latest development of new homes from award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson.  Boasting large detached houses, set in an idyllic Cotswold location, it is perhaps not surprising that 75% of the homes at this picturesque development are now sold.

Amanda Benjamin, Senior Sales Manager for Crest Nicholson, said: “We’ve been delighted with the positive response we’ve received to our homes at St James Mead.  Great care was taken to make sure our new homes were in keeping with the look and feel of the existing village while offering the space and modern conveniences that are so sought after by homebuyers today.  The popularity of the development is a real testament to this and we’d strongly urge homebuyers looking to move in the area to visit St James Mead soon before all our homes are snapped up!” 

Based in a tranquil village setting near Evesham, St James Mead offers an intimate collection of 20 detached three, four and five bedroom homes that have been designed to blend seamlessly with the traditional architecture of the surrounding village, exuding charm and a community feel.

Within walking distance of the village centre, residents of St James Mead will find a butchers, post office, general store, church and primary school all within easy reach. There are also a number of highly regarded schools in the area, including the outstanding-rated Prince Henry’s High School, which specialises in science to a very high level.

Prices at St James Mead currently start from £223,960 for a four bedroom Meadvale bought using the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.  Help to Buy enables purchasers to own their own home with just five per cent deposit and 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining cost of the property is funded by a 20 per cent equity loan from the Government that is interest free for the first five years.
