Boasting a longer shoreline around its 15 idyllic lakes and canals than the entire coastline of Jersey, more than 220 pieces of public art and 22 million trees (that’s around 100 for every resident), Milton Keynes is fast becoming one of the UK’s best places to live, with more people choosing to make the town their home than ever.
Blending the best in culture and outdoor living, the fast-growing area has some of the region’s most impressive new developments, including Saxon Reach by L&Q, a collection of 1 to 5 bedroom apartments and houses set within acres of landscaped grounds, available through Help to Buy and Shared Ownership.
To celebrate the next release of homes at Saxon Reach, Field Sales Manager Ruth, tells us why so many people are choosing to make Milton Keynes their home:
“Those who choose to put down roots here in Milton Keynes are really attracted to the green space, surrounding parkland and a welcoming community that supports local businesses, all within a short commute to London, and even Oxford and Cambridge. The town is home to a great selection of bars, restaurants and shops, including one of the largest shopping centres in the country, and offers a real mix of independent ventures.
Having worked in the area over the past year, I’ve seen the area thrive first hand, having recently been awarded as the best place for business in the UK by The Times, and listed as one as the fastest growing populations in the country.
The town has also just been ranked as the top city for access to public parks and gardens, and seeing as no resident is ever more than half a mile from a park in Milton Keynes I can see why! We’ve got more than 6,000 acres of green space cared for by The Parks Trust here, who work so hard to uphold the 30% of parkland that occupies Milton Keynes, far more than neighbouring St Albans. This surrounding countryside is a real draw for buyers; at Saxon Reach we’ve recently seen a surge of potential purchasers searching for a home in the countryside to ensure a better work-life balance, having taken advantage of the changing work patterns and adjusting to permanently working from home.
Whilst working at Saxon Reach it has been wonderful to see such a high number of people interested in the town, and to see such a blossoming community of all ages looking at new homes, from singles and young couples, to growing families and downsizers.
L&Q’s mission is to create homes that are affordable in neighbourhoods that people love, and we’re delighted to offer accessible homes at Saxon Reach, providing a step onto the property ladder in one of the UK’s most flourishing towns. What’s more, with us, there are no hidden extras – every one of our homes at Saxon Reach comes with premium fixtures, fittings and appliances as standard. Exceeding the National Space Standard, every home at Saxon Reach is larger than the average new build property with spacious gardens and interiors for the whole family to enjoy.”
The variety of home ownership schemes available at Saxon Reach ensure that buyers can purchase their new home without the hassle of managing the sale of their previous home. L&Q’s Assisted Move scheme benefits current homeowners hoping to sell their current property quickly, with L&Q handling the chain and expenses of the process, while with Part Exchange, L&Q will purchase your current property, giving homeowners a guaranteed sale with a quick offer. Help to Buy is also available at Saxon Reach, providing a stepping stone for first time buyers taking a step onto the property ladder.
Located close to Wavendon, Milton Keynes, Saxon Reach is part of a flourishing new residential quarter at Glebe Farm, which 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, and two new schools.
Homes in the current phase start from £367,750 for a three-bedroom house with Help to Buy available.
Shared Ownership homes in the current release have now sold out, however, more will be launching later this year.
Part Exchange and Assisted Move available on selected plots.
