On 7th September, L&Q is launching the first phase of new homes at Saxon Reach, which is set to become a thriving new neighbourhood just outside of Milton Keynes. A collection of 3 and 4 bedroom houses, Saxon Reach will offer spacious homes ideal for growing families, close to one of the UK’s fastest emerging property hotspots.
Saxon Reach is one of the first developments forming part of L&Q’s New-Build Homes: Quality Standard promise, a commitment to delivering premium fixtures, fittings and appliances as standard, at no additional cost to the buyer.
Delivering a total of 225 homes, the development will be a buzzing community once complete, with homes available through Private Sale and Shared Ownership. Catering to all buyers, a wide range of properties will be on offer, from two and three-bedroom apartments to three, four and five-bedroom houses.
Andrea Palmer, Head of Regional Sales for L&Q (Counties Region), comments: “The launch of new homes at Saxon Reach marks a major milestone in L&Q’s expansion outside of London. Set along the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford corridor, Milton Keynes is one of the UK’s fastest growing cities*, rapidly becoming a renowned centre for technology and innovation. Home to numerous leading national and international companies, the city has seen significant population and employment growth over recent years, however a lack of housing in the area could put future growth at risk. We are pleased to be delivering a thriving new district for the city, providing a range of homes for hundreds of single people, couples and families looking to put down roots in this flourishing area.”
Saxon Reach is part of the wider Glebe Farm development area, a growing new residential quarter for Milton Keynes. Glebe Farm will deliver new retail and commercial facilities, a doctor’s surgery and sports and leisure facilities, as well as an extension of the Milton Keynes Redway system – a 200 mile network of shared use paths for cyclists and pedestrians. Perfect for families, the site will also be home to two new schools – a primary and a secondary school.
The new homes are just a 9-minute drive from Milton Keynes, offering a plethora of popular restaurants, bars and shops – including Centre:MK, one of the country’s top shopping destinations. Closer to home, neighbouring Wavendon offers a selection of independent restaurants and pubs, as well regular concerts at local music venue The Stables Theatre. Several Good primary schools – St Mary’s Wavendon C of E Primary, Brooklands Farm Primary School and Wavendon Gate School – are minutes away from Saxon Reach, whilst nearby secondary school options include Fulbrook Middle School and Walton High School.
As well as direct links to Oxford and Cambridge, Saxon Reach is well-connected to both London and the North, close to the M1 via the A421. The development is also a short drive from Milton Keynes train station, providing regular half an hour journeys to London Euston.
The stylish homes at Saxon Reach all offer high-quality specification throughout; Nobilia kitchens are complete with integrated appliances, while bathrooms feature sleek sanitaryware and chrome fixtures. Underfoot, all homes are fitted with premium Amtico flooring, plush carpet and gloss porcelain tiling. Master bedrooms are fitted with mirrored sliding wardrobes and the majority will have an en-suite. Most houses at Saxon Reach are complete with a turfed garden, while apartments come with a private balcony.
Encouraging buyers to use the extended Redway cycle and pedestrian route, all homes will have access to cycle storage on site. The majority of homes also offer at least two parking spaces, as well as visitor bays.
Pricing starts from £367,750 for a three bedroom house and £479,995 for a four bedroom house.
