New UK Autumn Holiday Homes: The Super Grand Hampton At Watermark Is Introduced


The new Super Grand Hampton on Summer Lake at £850,000 is an impressive 5 bedroom detached New England-style lakeside property and being introduced in the last phase of 24 homes at Watermark, The Cotswolds.

Jules Miller-Cheevers, Sales & Marketing Director says: “We have had a successful summer in terms of sales at Watermark and have been listening to our onsite visitors in order to tweak the offering to further meet their requirements.  We are seeing demand at both the upper end of the price bracket, at the £850,000 mark and also a continuing interest for our re-sale homes positioned around the £250,000 price-point. Our buyers have told us they love the light and spacious open-plan living areas with big kitchens which are already offered in our Grand Hampton homes and so we have taken this a step further and re-designed these to provide a new ‘Super Grand Hampton’ with even bigger kitchens at 42.5m2; which is up from 16m2 in the Grand Hampton.  We are anticipating that people will be ‘wowed’ by these homes and already have a couple from Oxfordshire who made a reservation as soon as I showed them the new plans!”
