HERE is your first look at the 250-home development in Moreton.

A whopping 38.7 acres of land - the size of 21 football pitches - was secured by Spitfire Homes after planning permission was given the green light by the Cotswold District Council back in July

The housing developer has revealed computer-generated images (CGIs) of what the one-to-five-bedroom properties at the Ellenbrook development will look like.

Work has already started on the development, which is located on the town's southern edge, just off the A429, opposite North Cotswolds Hospital and Fosseway Garden Centre.

The homes adhere to the honey-coloured exteriors known to Cotswolds homes.

The collection will present a mixture of honey-coloured natural and reconstituted stone and red brickwork and slate roofs, creating an array of impressive street scenes.

Each home will have a designer kitchen, high-specification bathrooms, and open-plan layouts.

All homes at Ellenbrook will have heating and hot water supplied by air-source heat pumps and are equipped with photovoltaic (PV) solar panels and battery provision.

Electric vehicle charging points and underfloor heating also come as standard.

Matt Vincent from Spitfire Homes said: "The premium new homes at Moreton-in-Marsh are the latest addition to the Spitfire Homes Bespoke Collection.

"They provide prospective buyers with a balanced lifestyle, offering a peaceful and attractive setting whilst maintaining connectivity.

"They also appeal to modern homebuyers, from families and couples to individuals and downsizers, who are looking for that added touch of luxury and efficiency.

"Following our previous successful schemes in the Cotswolds, we're very excited to mark our return to the region with such a unique offering."

Lucy Jordan at Hills & Vale, the instructed agent at Ellenbrook, added: "These first images give prospective buyers a detailed first look of the properties available at Ellenbrook, allowing customers to envisage what it would be like to live at such a characterful collection of new homes.

"This thriving market town is in an extremely desirable location, and we expect significant buyer demand once homes are available to purchase."

According to a council report, several attempts to build on the land had been attempted since 1973 but have fallen through, including a proposal to build a new supermarket in 2013 and 150 homes in 2017.
