All the homes at two Vistry Group locations less than two miles apart in Berkshire have now been sold, following a surge in demand for properties in attractive village settings post lockdown.

Construction work is in its final stages at Blue Mountain in Binfield and Archfield in Warfield, where Vistry’s Thames Valley region is building under its Linden Homes brand.

The 112 homes at Blue Mountain, off Temple Way, and the 52 properties at Archfield, off Newell Green, are now fully occupied, including the affordable homes provided for rent and shared ownership.

Blue Mountain was built as part of the regeneration of the former Blue Mountain golf course, alongside Bloor Homes.

Alix Laflin, marketing manager for Vistry Thames Valley, said: “Demand for homes has soared ever since the end of the Covid lockdowns. House moving decisions that were perhaps put on hold during the worst of the pandemic are now going full steam ahead.

“This part of Berkshire has proved particularly attractive to buyers as picturesque village locations with good transport links are highly prized. Both sites are within easy reach of Bracknell railway station and the M4, making them convenient options for people commuting to Reading or London.

“Vistry Group’s status as a five-star housebuilder with the Home Builders Federation (HBF), which means that more than 90 per cent of customers surveyed would recommend us to a friend, has also been a factor in these two developments selling out so quickly.

“In addition to this, our Blue Mountain development earned the Quality Recognition Award from Premier Guarantee, an accolade award to sites which meet the very highest standards in site management, workmanship and various other criteria.”

Vistry Thames Valley is also building under its Linden Homes brand at Copsewood in Wokingham, where a small selection of homes are still available to purchase.
