The demand for townhouses across Britain has increased,* spurred on by a post-pandemic race for space, which is driving an especially competitive and booming national property market.
Meeting the heightened demand for larger homes with more internal and external living spaces, on 28th May L&Q will launch a brand-new collection of four-bedroom townhouses at Saxon Reach, a green, family-oriented new neighbourhood for Milton Keynes. L&Q’s spacious semi-detached three storey townhouse known as ‘The Dartmouth’ offers a plethora of benefits for purchasers and will be available through outright sale and part exchange.
The new homes add to the already flourishing community now settled at Saxon Reach, a development which will ultimately deliver 255 high-quality, one- to five-bedroom homes for the region. Putting community living at the heart of a brand-new neighbourhood, Glebe Farm has been designed with families in mind, with generous green spaces, playparks and tree-lined avenues, plus an all-through school opening in September 2022.
Clare Brenlund, Sales and Marketing Director at L&Q comments, “Our new collection of four-bedroom townhouses is perfect for buyers seeking accessibly priced larger homes in a new, family-oriented neighbourhood. At Glebe Farm, new residents will benefit from excellent transport links, green spaces, and a brand-new school on-site.
The new launch will meet the growing national demand for townhouses and, crucially, provide larger family homes for an area where house prices now outstrip the national average by 26%.**”
Traditionally spread across three floors, townhouses offer a layout that is truly adaptable to cater for the business of family life. On the ground floor of ‘The Dartmouth,’ the kitchen/dining room features fitted Nobilia cabinetry and integrated appliances, including combined washer/dryer, oven, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. The open plan layout makes for the ultimate hosting space, allowing residents to cook whilst entertaining guests or socialising during a family get together. At the back of the home, the generously proportioned living room has French doors which lead out to the turfed private garden, perfect for children to play in.
Upstairs a dedicated main bedroom comes complete with en-suite bathroom and built in fitted wardrobes, offering an adult sanctuary. Across the hall, the separate study is ideal for parents needing to work from home without being disturbed. Thoughtfully designed to provide separate spaces for children and adults to enjoy, the townhouses have two further bedrooms on the top floor as well as an extra bathroom.
L&Q’s new townhouses at Saxon Reach form part of the wider Glebe Farm area. Establishing this brand-new community for current and future generations, the development will soon deliver a range of shopping and commercial facilities, including a doctor’s surgery and sports facilities, creating an ideal family hub within walking distance from L&Q’s homes. Prioritising outdoor living, the area offers plentiful peaceful green areas including footpaths, cycle links, ponds and playparks.
Ideal for commuters, Saxon Reach is ideally located a short drive from Milton Keynes Central Station, which offers residents direct trains to London Euston taking only 33 minutes. Woburn Sands railway station is also only a five minute drive away, with trains to Bletchley in 11 minutes and to Bedford in 31 minutes. From L&Q new townhouses, the M1 is easily accessible by car, with journeys into London taking around an hour.
Private sale prices start from £469,995 for a four-bedroom house. Incentives may be available on selected homes.
