This autumn, L&Q launched its flagship development of brand new homes at Saxon Reach, Wavendon, which is set to become a thriving new neighbourhood just outside of Milton Keynes. A collection of three and four 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. Each home will be complete with everything the new buyer will need from the very first day.
Unlike other developers, L&Q is offering no optional extras, as everything is of a high specification, and dependent on the stage of build, the buyer will only need to make the decision on how they want their new home decorated; a choice between a contemporary palette incorporating whites and greys, or perhaps a warm country-style hue with tones of oak and cream.
Delivering a total of 225 homes, the development will be a buzzing community once complete, with homes available through private sale (Help to Buy and Assisted Move will be available) and shared ownership. Catering to all buyers, a wide range of properties will be on offer, from one, two and three bedroom apartments to three, four and five bedroom houses.
Andrea Palmer, Head of Regional Sales for L&Q (Counties Region), said, “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.”
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. When it comes to outdoor space, most houses at Saxon Reach come complete with French doors leading to turfed gardens, inclusive of a shed and paved areas, and most apartments feature balconies.
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.
Positioned on the Fen Roundabout, home to giant sculpture, the Leaping Man – a tribute to local resident and Gold Medal Olympian Greg Rutherford – the development is just a nine-minute drive from the impressive facilities of Milton Keynes, offering a plethora of popular restaurants, bars and shops – including Centre:MK, one of the country’s top shopping destinations. Also close to the majestic Buckinghamshire countryside, Saxon Reach perfectly blends city connectivity and outdoor living.
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.
Neighbouring Wavendon offers a selection of independent restaurants and pubs, as well as regular concerts at local music venue The Stables Theatre. Several primary schools rated Good – St Mary’s Wavendon C of E Primary, Brooklands Farm Primary School and Wavendon Gate School – are minutes away from Saxon Reach, while 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, where it takes just 30 minutes to London Euston.
Pricing starts from £367,750 for a three bedroom house and £479,995 for a four bedroom house.
