Two and three bedroom homes available in Wixams – ideal for first time buyers

On May 15th and 16th, L&Q released a limited collection of two and three bedroom homes at L&Q at Willow Grove, Wixams. This popular development is at the top of the list for many first time buyers in Bedfordshire, looking to get onto the property ladder. With house prices rising by 7.9% over the past year in Bedfordshire, now is the time to take advantage of L&Q’s Shared Ownership homes at L&Q at Willow Grove.

The contemporary collection of houses will be continuously released in phases over the next few years – giving couples and growing families the opportunity to put down roots in one of the country’s most ambitious new schemes.

Christine Osborne, Sales and Customer Service Director for L&Q’s Counties Region, comments; “Our highly successful launch earlier this year, proved that there is a significant demand for Shared Ownership on the Oxford-Cambridge arc. Wixams is one of the largest new brownfield developments in the UK and we are excited to be a part of the project, delivering high quality homes in this thriving new district for Bedfordshire. We’re proud to be supporting first time buyers onto the property ladder with this exceptional collection of two and three bedroom houses.”
