Almost A Quarter Of New Homes At Milton Keynes Sold From Plan
15 Dec 2016

Savvy home hunters in and around Milton Keynes are favouring the location and benefits of buying off plan at a new Linden Homes Midlands development.

Commuter-friendly housing at Oxley Gardens has led to almost a quarter of the development being snapped up from the drawing board – just weeks after it received its official unveiling.

The first of the 131 new homes off Holden Road are due for completion in the New Year.

A superb selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes will make up the development, built in a range of contemporary townhouse and traditional two storey designs.

And while it’s not everyone who has the courage or confidence to buy a new home without the first bricks being laid, there are huge benefits to be gained by cherry picking your preferred plot from the drawing board.

By beating the rush and reserving a brand new home from plan, savvy customers can reap numerous benefits including:

- Selecting a plot with a sought-after south facing garden
- Contemporary kitchens and bathrooms
- Choosing preferred taste in bathroom wall tiles
- Choosing preferred kitchen units and worktops
- Having a blank canvas from which to plan a new home
- Lower utility bills and reduced maintenance bills that new homes can offer
- New materials used in the construction process also mean that new homes are more energy efficient than their older counterparts.
- 10-year National House Building Council (NHBC) protection

Linden Homes Midlands area sales manager Tracey Gibson said: “Buying off plan is a trend which seems to be continuing across the Midlands region with buyers who are keen to secure their preferred plot on a particular development.

“For the customer, this is great news – bringing with it numerous benefits. For developers like us, it shows a real confidence in the new homes market and a recognition that our carefully chosen locations and designs are continuing to win public approval.

“Our experience shows that customers are much more savvy about the house buying process, and coupled with knowledgeable and experienced sales staff and up to the minute brochures and plans – snapping up a new home from the drawing board is as popular as it has ever been, and never easier.

“The location of Oxley Gardens has been a major factor in contributing to its early sales success and we anticipate a lot more activity in the coming weeks.

The development is perfectly placed within a stone’s throw of Milton Keynes and Bletchley and some 20 miles from Dunstable, Luton and Northampton.

It boasts excellent road access to the A5, A421 and M1 for journeys to Bedford, Oxford, Birmingham and London. Milton Keynes train station is three miles away, which offers a fastest journey time of 37 minutes into London Euston station.

The sales and marketing suite is open from Thursday to Monday from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively, contact the sales team on 07843 328295.
