Busy working couple snap up the show home at Bewley’s Bellmount View, Faringdon

8 Feb 2024

Bewley Homes has long been admired for its commitment to creating beautiful, well-designed homes on developments that offer an unmatched standard of living; and the company’s show homes are the centrepiece to this legacy.

Elegantly styled and thoughtfully designed, these showcase properties are a testament to the award-winning housebuilders’ dedication to providing homes that stand out in terms of design, quality, and functionality.

Busy working couple Samantha Ashling, 32, and her partner, Toby Bond, 25, would certainly agree with this sentiment when they were able to buy the stunning show home at Bellmount View, in Faringdon near Oxford.

Samantha couldn’t be happier with her new home and commented: “We are so pleased. I think we must be the envy of our neighbours – not only did we get to have a house complete with gorgeous curtains, fitted blinds and carpets, but our garden is beautifully landscaped, leaving us with absolutely nothing to do.

“When we first viewed the show home, it definitely felt like our home. It had everything on our wish list including a big open plan kitchen diner, which had been beautifully fitted.”

Samantha added: “Toby and I both work overseas on luxury yachts, so you could say I’m familiar with laundry! For me, having a utility room for washing and drying was a must, and our house has a perfect size one. We also wanted a garage and two bathrooms, one for guests and our own ensuite. This home had everything – we were so lucky as the timing was perfect to buy it.”

Samantha was at university in Oxford and always loved the city and the surrounding area. Having saved hard to buy their first home, Toby and Samantha knew they wanted to settle close to the countryside. Samantha explained: “It was on a house-hunting trip, when I popped into a local estate agent, who told me about ‘The lovely new Bewley development’ in Faringdon which had the best of both worlds. We booked a viewing, and the rest is history!”

The couple bought the three-bedroom detached show home priced at £505,000 at the end of September. Toby said: “We found the process incredibly straightforward thanks to the help of the Bewley sales team. Before we knew it, we were collecting the keys! By buying the show home there was so little to do, we could instantly relax and enjoy our new home.”

Toby added: “We have hectic work lives, so to come home to a peaceful and beautiful part of the world is what we needed. We love that we’re part of a flourishing local community with a weekly market, monthly farmers’ market in the square, a friendly café, restaurants, pub, supermarkets, surgery and post office. Everything is on our doorstep, but at the same time, we’re just a short drive from Oxford and Swindon.”

Elaine Stratford, Sales and Marketing Director at Bewley Homes, said: “The show homes at Bewley developments have always received positive feedback from our prospective buyers. We work closely with our superb interior design company PJB, to create interiors which are contemporary in their fittings and fixtures, whilst at the same time showing how to maximise light and get the best use of space.

“Our show homes represent the heart of our company’s ethos – to showcase what prospective how buyers can utilise the blank canvass. We pay meticulous attention to every detail, from the layout and design to the quality of materials used. Each show home is a showcase of the possibilities we offer to our customers.”

Bellmount View is in the historic market town of Faringdon, offering excellent amenities, and great road (M4) and rail connections. Bewley Homes’ Garden Village Collection of homes at Bellmount View offers a range of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, priced from £320,000. For more information 0808 173 0009 or visit
