The Martens

Situated in the picturesque village of Hinton Waldrist, The Martens is a small development of six semi-detached cottages sympathetically designed to nestle into the stunning Cotswold countryside that surrounds it.

The Martens is the latest development built by Darcliffe Homes, which during the last 50 years has designed and built outstanding bespoke property developments in the Thames Valley corridor and beyond. During this time Darcliffe Homes has gained a reputation for designing quality homes that exceed expectations whilst delivering outstanding customer service.

Innovation is at the heart of our design and planning as we strive to reduce the lifetime cost of a home through modern construction methods and attention to energy efficiency. Inside, the homes are carefully planned to provide spacious and functional living areas that meet the demands of today’s modern lifestyles.

All our homes are finished with high quality fittings which are included in the selling price, along with features such as carpets, flooring, kitchens and built-in appliances. This makes the homes
ready to move into and eliminates any hidden costs for home buyers.

About Developer

Darcliffe Homes is the local expert in bespoke property development in the Thames Valley corridor and beyond. With a reputation established for exacting standards and unrivalled quality, our ethos is to create sustainable developments that inspire modern living.

We specialise in small to medium scale developments in the most desirable locations, constantly challenging ourselves to ensure that the homes we build are not only visually attractive, but also have the character and personality that makes our customers proud to be homeowners.

Originally founded in the 1980s, the company was transferred into the Country Estates Group in 2009 with the ambition of increasing its residential output over the next five to ten years. The company will achieve this through organic growth, developing its own land, having achieved its own planning consents.

We are delighted that our new build programme has started with a number of highly successful schemes, and that our future development programme is ever increasing.

At Darcliffe Homes we believe in building new homes that are not only beautifully finished, but are also innovative in their design, reducing the lifetime costs whilst ensuring they meet the lifestyle needs of our customers.

We want our developments to give something back to the community, not just in providing new homes, but to actively enhance a location through design, build quality, materials and carefully considered surroundings. We are committed to delivering high environmental and sustainability standards on all of our new homes, led by modern methods of construction.

As a result, we will always be at the forefront of bespoke property development ensuring our developments and your new homes stand the test of time.
