A new showhome has been unveiled at a development which is drawing new residents to Leighton Buzzard.
Bellway is building 165 homes at Lestone Mews, off Bellona Drive on the edge of the town. The homes are enabling local people to step onto or move up the housing ladder – and the location is proving popular with house-hunters from London.
The new showhome is a spacious three-bedroom semi-detached family home called The Tweed.
Luke Southgate, Sales Director for Bellway Northern Home Counties, said: “We have already received lots of enquiries, many from home-hunters in Greater London. People are looking to get out of the capital into great market towns like Leighton Buzzard, especially into houses built by trusted, established builders like Bellway.
“Despite all the uncertainty this year has brought, the housing market is really buzzing in popular commuter towns across Bedfordshire. They are handy for London, close to a proper town centre and near some fabulous countryside.
“There’s a real need for new housing here, and we are seeing lots of interest in the new showhome at Lestone Mews. It is now available to view by appointment only, with strict safety measures in place.”
Bellway is investing £1m in education as part of its planning contributions for Lestone Mews, along with a further £900,000 to support local infrastructure. The development is providing two, three and four-bedroom houses, as well as two-bedroom maisonettes and apartments. Prices currently start from £225,000.
The Tweed has a front-facing living room and a spacious kitchen/dining room with French doors to the garden, while upstairs there’s a good-sized master bedroom with en-suite shower room, as well as two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The house type is available from £337,500.
Buyers at Lestone Mews can benefit from Bellway’s Express Mover scheme, in which Bellway works with a recommended local agent to sell the customer’s current home as quickly as possible – with no estate agent fees to pay.
Bellway has a five-star rating from the Home Builders Federation for 2020, which means more than 90 per cent of customers would recommend the housebuilder to a friend or family member.
