Three is the magic number for those looking to secure a beautiful home in Bedford. Work has started on the third and final phase of Storey Homes’ popular De Montfort Place development in the prime commuter hotspot. Recently revealed as the top commutable town by Savills, Bedford is within the golden radius of London, offering fast direct links into London St Pancras, in approximately 40 minutes.
Benefiting from excellent travel links, a welcoming communal green space and high specification homes, it is no surprise De Montfort Place has proved popular. Situated along a tree lined avenue and moments from the centre of town, the final phase of De Montfort Place will comprise a range of properties including two and three-bedroom luxury apartments and three and five-bedroom family homes. Crafted and inspired by traditional architectural design to complement its surroundings, the outstanding new homes will be available next year for first-time buyers, families and downsizers alike.
Katy Jordan, Managing Director of Storey Homes, comments: “After the fantastic success of the previous two phases, where only a handful of homes remain, we are delighted to break ground on site for the final phase at De Montfort Place. We have seen strong interest from local buyers and those moving out of London, including a mix of families, downsizers and first-time buyers. We anticipate these final homes will get snapped up quickly, due to the fantastic commuter links and location and urge potential purchasers to get in contact as soon as possible.”
All five-bedroom family houses benefit from luxurious living spaces including spacious open-plan kitchen and dining areas, providing the hub of the home. Ideal for modern living, there is access to secure allocated car parking spaces, set within the gated development. The apartments at De Montfort Place feature open-plan living areas and stylish glass balconies, designed to suit contemporary lifestyles. In addition to a communal lift, a selection of the ground floor apartments also benefit from private gardens, perfect for those who enjoy spending time outdoors.
The market town of Bedford offers an excellent selection of leisure and shopping amenities, including three speciality markets – a gourmet food event, farmers market and a home and garden market. The town is renowned for having one of the finest riverside settings of the River Great Ouse, which can be enjoyed by residents, along with many parks and green spaces. Bedford also hosts the annual International Kite Festival and bi-annual River Festival – the second largest outdoor event in the UK.
Ideal for families, Bedford is home to a number of well-regarded schools, two acclaimed independent schools, the Bedford School and Bedford Modern School, and also boasts strong local state schools including the Sharnbrook Academy and St Thomas More Catholic School area.
For convenient access to the city, the homes are ideally located less than an 11-minute walk to Bedford train station, which connects to London in 40 minutes. By car, major roads are easily accessible from the development, with the M1 five-miles away and Luton Airport approximately 40 minutes away.
