L and Q: Brand new Shared Ownership houses in Bedfordshire
Two and three bedroom family homes launching at Brook View in Wixams
L&Q are launching a selection of two and three bedroom Shared Ownership houses at Brook View, part of the highly coveted Wixams development in Bedfordshire. The first release of six contemporary homes will launch on Saturday 14th November and will continually be released in stages next year – giving couples and growing families the opportunity to put down roots in one of the country’s most ambitious new schemes.
L&Q at Brook View forms part of a wider development programme for the area. The scheme is just one of four new garden villages making up Wixams – one of Europe’s largest new brownfield developments. Covering an enormous 750 acres, the scheme will also deliver new commercial and retail facilities, and an impressive 300 acres of parkland. Each village will be complete with a local supermarket, garden centre, vet and village hall, promoting community interaction across the four neighbourhoods. Ideal for families, the site will also be home to six new schools, with three schools already open; Wixams Tree Primary, Lakeview School and Wixams Academy.
Providing an essential pocket of affordability in rural Bedfordshire, L&Q’s homes at Brook View will offer starting prices at an affordable £106,000 for a 40% share of a two bedroom house (full market value £265,000) and £126,000 for a 40% share of a three bedroom house (full market value £315,000).
L&Q will also follow up this launch with a new collection of Shared Ownership homes at Willow Grove early 2021, also part of the Wixams development.
Christine Osborne, Sales and Customer Service Director for L&Q’s Counties Region, comments: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the number of interested first time buyers at Wixams and are pleased to have many satisfied new homeowners that brought with us from our earlier offering at Willow Grove. We are anticipating the same level of response for Brook View as there is a significant demand for Shared Ownership in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire county. Wixams is one of largest new brownfield developments in the UK and we are excited to be a part of the project, delivering high quality homes and supporting first time buyers onto the property ladder with this much needed collection of two and three bedroom houses.”
L&Q at Brook View homes offer sleek integrated appliances in the kitchen. Bathrooms feature contemporary white sanitaryware and chrome finishes, while the master bedroom is fitted with built-in mirror wardrobes. Each home will have a private turfed garden with paving and a shed along with allocated parking.
L&Q at Brook View is just a 17 minute drive from the historic town of Bedford, offering a plethora of popular restaurants, bars and shops – including The Harpur Shopping Centre and Riverside Bedford Leisure Complex. There is plenty to do in the wider area; from indoor skiing and snowboarding at Xscape Milton Keynes, to music, comedy and theatre at The Bedford Corn Exchange.
Perfect for nature lovers, there are over 1,000 hectares of sprawling countryside spread across Bedfordshire. A Green Flag Park for eight years running, nearby Priory Country Park offers something for all ages, from grassy meadows and woodland, to children’s play areas and fishing and boating lakes.
Central London is easily accessible from nearby Bedford Train Station, reaching London St Pancras in just under 50 minutes. Alternatively, the scheme offers easy road access to Milton Keynes and London, and sits along the Cambridge – Milton Keynes – Oxford corridor. Luton airport is also a 35 minute drive away.
Prices start from £106,000 for a 40% share of a two bedroom house (full market value £265,000) and £126,000 for a 40% share of a three bedroom house (full market value £315,000).
