Spitfire Homes launches show home in picturesque South Gloucestershire village as 75 per cent of properties already sold

Spitfire Homes has opened the doors to a luxury four-bedroom show home in the picturesque village of Hawkesbury Upton, South Gloucestershire, close to the property hotspot of Bristol.


Named Rutherstone and forming part of the coveted Spitfire Homes Bespoke Collection, this exquisite collection of 21 design-led two to five-bedroom homes is suitable for individuals, couples, families and downsizers alike.


Surrounded by tranquil South Gloucestershire countryside, the show home, Somerly House, showcases a striking traditionally-inspired exterior, featuring a blend of reconstituted stone, tonal roof tiles and heritage white render. The interior presents a spacious and modern layout, benefitting from contemporary design and a careful selection of quality materials.

Featuring an open-plan kitchen, dining and family area with a separate living room and study, as well as a double-garage and large private garden, this stylish show home offers an abundance of space designed to compliment modern flexible lifestyles. Bedrooms are generous and inviting, with both the primary and secondary bedroom benefitting from a sleek and modern en suite and bespoke fitted wardrobes.


All homes at Rutherstone are powered by energy-efficient air-source heat pumps and benefit from underfloor heating, electric car charging points and A+ rated appliances, aligning with the priorities of current buyers.


Spitfire is also providing seven affordable and energy-efficient homes at Rutherstone and is contributing more than £204K in funding to benefit the local community.

Ben Leather, Managing Director at Spitfire Homes, said:

“Each home at Rutherstone blends traditionally inspired exteriors, designed to reflect the village’s distinctive Cotswold charm, with modern and flexible interiors”.

“Complimented by a tranquil setting and fast commuting links, homes at Rutherstone offer a truly unique proposition and an ideal lifestyle balance”.


“Homes at Rutherstone also demonstrate the sustainable values we have committed to as a business. Building energy-saving, sustainable features into our homes and supporting the communities that we work within are both key to our Sustainable Futures strategy, which outlines our sustainability commitments and targets to 2030.” 


A sought-after property hotspot, Bristol experienced house price growth of 13 per cent in 2021 – far above the UK average of 9.6 per cent. Reflecting strong demand for quality homes in the region, 75 per cent of Spitfire’s Rutherstone collection has already sold.


The first homes in the collection are expected to be completed this year, while a choice of quality two – five-bedroom homes remain available to purchase. Prices currently start from £830,000.
