Last chance to secure your dream home at Living at the Edge

18/03/2015 - General

And it seems as though homeowners in Dunstable are taking full advantage of the positive market conditions, with national housebuilder, Bloor Homes celebrating sales at its Living @ The Edge development, where 95% of properties have now been snapped up.

Househunters in Bedfordshire are therefore being encouraged to pay a visit to the development without delay, for their opportunity to secure one of the remaining three homes, including the two bedroom terraced Marford design, priced from £230,000 (£184,000 with Help to Buy) and the three bedroom Croftly townhouse, priced from £280,000 (or £224,000 with Help to Buy).

Vanessa MacNee, Sales Director for Bloor Homes South Midlands region said: "We have seen a huge surge of interest in the new homes at Living @ The Edge, particularly in our three bedroom family townhouses. This is in part due to the governments' Stamp Duty reforms, which came into force in December 2014, as well as the popular government scheme, Help to Buy. Added together, these schemes have enabled people who were previously stuck in a rental trap to take their first step onto the property ladder."

Indeed, according to Rightmove, the average rental cost for three bedroom home in Dunstable is currently between £900-1000 per month. People could however purchase the three bedroom, three storey Croftly townhouse at Living @ The Edge, with a monthly payment of as little as £765 per month**, when purchased under Help to Buy at £224,000, along with a deposit of £11,500.

Vanessa continues: "At Bloor Homes, we understand that home ownership is one of life's greatest aspirations and we're committed to helping both first time buyers and second steppers make that move with ease. With our homes proving so popular amongst both sets of purchasers at Living @ The Edge, we'd advise anyone interested in joining this thriving community to speak to our experienced sales advisors now to avoid disappointment."

Designs to delight

Typical of Bloor Homes' considered approach to housebuilding, the Croftly, three bedroom townhouse presents the very best in modern family living, featuring a fully-fitted, open-plan kitchen/dining room at the heart of the home, plus an additional family room. The first floor presents a further separate formal living room, whilst a large double bedroom and shower room can also be found on this floor.

Upstairs, the property offers two further double bedrooms, with the master also benefitting from a spacious en suite and SpaceSlide fitted wardrobes; further storage and a contemporary family bathroom complete the top floor. The property also comes with a spacious rear garden and single garage with a private driveway.

Living @ The Edge is situated in the historic market town of Dunstable, which offers something for everyone, from a bustling high street to more than 180 acres of parkland, gardens and open spaces. The development benefits from good transport links to the A5, M1 and A421 and rail links to London and Luton airport via Luton mainline station, making it ideally placed for commuters.
