House-hunters in Swindon are invited to take a look at the latest development from award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson this weekend, following the opening of its brand new show home at Tadpole Gate.

Situated on the rural fringe of North Swindon, Tadpole Gate is the first phase of homes at Tadpole Garden Village and combines the very best of town and country living. Comprising of 97 traditionally designed two, three, four and five bedroom homes set within 179 hectares of tranquil countryside, the much anticipated development offers spectacular views of the Wiltshire Downs and the Cotswolds.

The four bedroom Elsenham show home demonstrates contemporary living at its best. On the ground floor, it boasts a beautifully fitted kitchen and spacious open-plan dining area as well as a generous living room with French doors opening on to the private back garden, and a guest cloakroom and inbuilt cupboard for further storage. Upstairs you’ll find sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The main bedroom comes complete with a built-in double wardrobe and hotel style en-suite shower room, offering perfect respite for busy parents.
When completed, Tadpole Garden Village will feature 70 hectares of green space including a new town park, sports pitches, children’s play areas and allotments, all of which will be connected by an intelligent network of walking and cycling paths. In addition, Crest Nicholson has also allocated 50 hectares of land for a dedicated nature park, which is being developed in partnership with the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. The development is designed around Garden Village principles, which prioritise light, leafy and beautiful spaces and encourages community spirit through design.
