New Show Homes Reflect Demand At Hanslope Scheme

Posted 16 October 2020 by Keith Osborne

Buyer interest in a development in Buckinghamshire has led to accelerated construction and additional show houses...

Two new show homes were launched at a development in Hanslope after housebuilder Davidsons Homes accelerated its construction schedule to keep up with rising demand.

The Wheatfields, a collection of three-, four- and five-bedroom homes located off Long Street Road, has attracted increasing interest following the easing of lockdown restrictions, with buyers from as far away as London and Surrey enquiring about homes at the development.

In response to this growing demand, the developer has stepped up its build programme at The Wheatfields, completing 17 homes since restarting construction work on site in May. The opening of the two new show homes in August brings the total number of fully decorated and furnished houses available to view at the development to three.

Simon Tyler, head of sales for Davidsons Homes South Midlands, said: “The Wheatfields has always been a popular development, especially with buyers from in and around Milton Keynes, thanks to its attractive village location and good transport links.

“However, over recent months, there has been growing interest from people living further afield. We have received numerous enquiries from prospective purchasers from London keen to move out of the capital in search of better value and quality of life. While the rise in homeworking has prompted more people to think about moving further away from the office, The Wheatfields is also ideally placed for commuting to London, as it’s just a 20-minute drive to Milton Keynes Central station for direct services to Euston.”

The Wheatfields is set to bring 141 new homes in a wide variety of styles to Hanslope. The latest show houses, the three-bedroom ‘Chisley’ and the four-bedroom ‘Barnwell’ are available to view by appointment only at the development, as is the five-bedroom ‘Newstead’, which opened its doors before the lockdown.

Tyler said: “The ‘Chisley’ is a three-storey, three-bedroom semi-detached home which has proven particularly popular with first-time buyers and young families. The design of the ‘Chisley’ is something which has caught the attention of visitors, many of whom have commented on the spacious three double bedroom’s and Kitchen/family/diner which is perfect for entertaining guests.

“We have also welcomed a lot of visitors to the new ‘Barnwell’ show home, a detached four-bedroom house. This property is especially appealing to growing families and professionals due to its size and some of the features it includes, such as a study, utility room, and a dressing room in the master suite. This home provides lots of space, which is essential for those continuing to work from home. The ‘Barnwell’ has attracted a great deal of interest from buyers coming from London and across the UK looking for a home in the country that offers plenty of space both inside and out.”

A selection of homes are currently available to purchase at The Wheatfields, with prices starting at £329,995.
