Homebuyers priced out of Milton Keynes are increasingly turning to a new Towcester development, says developer Lovell Homes.
With the average house price in Milton Keynes having leaped by 601 per cent over the past 30 years – making it the top-performing New Town for house price growth, according to a recent report from Halifax* – it’s unsurprising that homeseekers are looking further afield.
According to Lovell, many are finding the ideal solution at The Green, the company’s brand-new development on the outskirts of historic Towcester.
“A significant number of our buyers at The Green have been people living or working in Milton Keynes who want to stay in the area but don’t want to pay Milton Keynes prices,” says Lovell field sales manager Jennie King. “The feedback we’re getting is that The Green offers them all the space they want in a fantastic location with brilliant travel connections, at a price they can afford.
“They also love the chance to live in a stylish, new-build home in the heart of the countryside, yet with the big-city attractions of Milton Keynes less than 10 miles’ drive away. And because the train journey from Milton Keynes to London Euston takes from as little as 35 minutes, you can easily commute to the capital too.
“We’ve seen exceptional demand since launching The Green, with many buyers attracted by the incredible value we can offer them. Then, when they look round, they find they’re equally impressed by the design and build-quality of our homes and the lifestyle available here. With the development now nearly sold out – we have only three homes still for sale – we’d encourage potential purchasers to get in touch with us now to avoid missing out on these final properties.”
Lovell now has just three four-bedroom Lemsford house styles left for sale at The Green, each priced at £344,950 (or £275,960 after a Help to Buy: Equity** loan).
A perfect home for modern families, the Lemsford offers beautifully designed interiors which are both functional and attractive. The downstairs layout features an impressive open-plan kitchen / dining room with French doors leading on to the garden, while the kitchen boasts an adjoining utility room as well high-specification Bosch appliances, including hob, double oven, integrated dishwasher and integrated fridge-freezer. Also on the ground floor is an elegant and generously proportioned living room with feature bay window. The cloakroom and useful under-stairs storage complete the downstairs accommodation. On the first floor is the sizeable master bedroom, with fitted wardrobe and en-suite, plus three other good-sized bedrooms and the family bathroom. The Lemsford also benefits from a garage and landscaped and turfed front garden.
In a leafy location bordering farmland, The Green enjoys excellent transport connections with the A43 and A5 less than half a mile away. It’s just seven-and-a-half miles to Junction 15A of the M1 while Northampton is 11 miles away.
Towcester itself is a highly attractive market town with many historic listed buildings, a wealth of independent shops and a farmers’ market.
