Secure homes in North Wiltshire

Squires Court is set in what was once part of the grounds of Westrop House, a nineteenth-century manor built by Squire William Cowdy

Highworth, a small but bustling market town with a charming market square, an unspoilt atmosphere and a rich sense of history, is located in North Wiltshire, close to the Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire borders. Faringdon and Lechlade are within easy reach, Swindon is less than eight miles away and Cirencester approximately 15 miles away.

The town offers excellent shopping facilities, a weekly market, plenty of places to eat and drink, a library, sports facilities, an arts centre, golf and bowls clubs and even a choral society. Junction 15 of the M4 is only about eight miles away and from Swindon Central Station you can reach London Paddington in less than an hour.

The Archstone sales team expected a good response to the launch of Squires Court but the new over 55s development proved even more popular than anticipated. Two new homes have been sold and a further two reservations have already been taken.

Location and style have both played a part in this sales success. Set within attractive landscaped gardens, Squires Court is located in Oak Drive just minutes from the charming traditional high street and is also around the corner from the beautiful fifteenth-century church of St Michael, just one of Highworth’s historical treasures.

In keeping with the history-steeped atmosphere of the area, Squires Court is set in what was once part of the grounds of Westrop House, a nineteenth-century manor built by Squire William Cowdy. With nine, two- and three-bedroom cottages and four, two-bedroom apartments, Squires Court is small enough to provide a sense of ‘exclusivity’ but large enough to generate a real sense of community.

These new homes are fitted with high quality fixtures and fittings. They offer excellent value for money, with the apartments starting from just £264,950 and the cottages from £389,950.

One of the benefits of living at Squires Court is that there’s an estate manager on hand to deal with the day-to-day administration of the development, organise the gardening and maintenance of the communal areas and generally to be on hand to offer help and advice when needed.
