New research from Business Insider reveals that exposure to green spaces is associated with a range of significant health benefits, improving both physical and mental health. Proven to lower stress levels, increase sleep duration and positively impact individual wellbeing, living near green space is becoming an increasingly important consideration for prospective homeowners.
Committed to becoming the first carbon negative UK city by 20502, and recently listed as the top city for access to public parks and gardens, Milton Keynes is renowned for its abundance of parkland and greens space, with over 150 parks in the town, meaning no resident is ever more than half a mile from a park3. Helping meet demand for housing in the countryside town of Milton Keynes, L&Q are delivering a collection of 225 one to five bedroom homes at their new development, Saxon Reach with three and four bedroom houses currently available.
Prioritising green space and making sure that all residents have access to private outdoor areas, most homes at Saxon Reach come with a turfed garden, complete with a garden shed and paved areas. The rear gardens are surrounded by closed board fencing, whilst front gardens feature colourful plants and planted trees which complement the leafy surroundings of the development. With working from home becoming an increasingly important part of everyday lives, the garden sheds can be used as a home office or home-schooling space away from the rest of the house, whilst the spacious gardens are ideal for the coming summer months of sunshine. The development will also be home to a new play park, so that families and children can enjoy an abundance of green outdoor space on their doorstep.
Christine Osborne, Sales and Customer Services Director (Counties) at L&Q, comments, “At L&Q we believe it is important that all residents have access to green space. With outdoor space now more important than ever, we have ensured that all homes at Saxon Reach come with a private garden or balcony, allowing residents to enjoy a slice of outdoor life from the comfort of their own home. We’re delighted to be offering affordable homes in what is increasingly becoming one of the country’s fastest growing property hotspots. With spacious homes, private gardens, easy access to the surrounding countryside, and direct trains into the capital, our Shared Ownership and Help to Buy homes at Saxon Reach provide a route onto the property ladder for a wide range of buyers.”
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.
Saxon Reach is part of the wider Glebe Farm development area, a growing new residential quarter for Milton Keynes, which will meet the demands of the budding town. Glebe Farm will deliver new retail and commercial facilities, and 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.
The development 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.
Alongside the spacious gardens, the stylish homes all offer high-quality interior 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.
Private Sale prices start from £365,000 for a three-bedroom house available with Help to Buy and £460,000 for a four-bedroom house with Help to Buy.
