The Stig puts Oxfordshire buyers in the fast lane

Oxfordshire home buyers were racing to the region’s newest housing development thanks to a television mystery man.

The Stig was in Didcot as Persimmon Homes launched its new showhome at Great Western Park.

Fans visiting the development were thrilled to meet the man behind the tinted visor with one prospective buyer even winning a driving day experience to push a Ferrari and Lamborghini to its limits.

The motoring theme features heavily in Persimmon’s showhome with a special Top Gear inspired bedroom – a must see for all car enthusiasts.

“To have our very own Stig to launch the showhome certainly created lots of interest,” said Pauline Fletcher, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Wessex.  “At Great Western Park, we have a range of properties available to suit every lifestyle need from first time buyers to large families.

“Owning a new home has never been easier, and we’d encourage any buyer to visit our show home to discover the number of different incentives available,” continued Pauline.  “Part Exchange is just one of these offers and we will guarantee to make an offer on your existing property within seven days.”

The first phase of the Great Western Park development features two-bedroom coach houses as well as two, three and four bedroom homes alongside larger five bedroom detached properties.  Prices start at £139,996 with FirstBuy.
