Market towns more appealing to home buyers

National house builder, Bellway knows a good site when it sees one. Its latest development, The Glade in Buckingham is set to get house hunters excited. Located close to the centre of the market town of Winslow, The Glade provides a variety of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom style homes set in an attractive street layout that will suit families as well as those just starting off on the housing ladder.

“Recent research by both Lloyds TSB and the Halifax point to the popularity of market towns and their resilience to market fluctuations,” commented Bellway’s sales director, Chris Edginton.

“Market towns are particularly attractive for those looking to move into more idyllic surroundings without sacrificing many of the important amenities they currently enjoy, homes in market towns are much in demand because buyers want to benefit from the higher quality of life that smaller market towns offer,” he said.

Bellway will be launching the development over the weekend of the 8th and 9th October and will be hosting a vintage tea party for visitors on the day. Prices at The Glade start from £199,995, to help buyers, Bellway can offer assistance with bank and building society deposits and on the larger properties Bellway are offering a part exchange service.

The village centre is within easy walking distance and has a small supermarket, restaurants, day to day shops and a variety of pubs as well as cafes.  Also, season depending there is a weekly market in the centre market square selling a wide range of produce.

The development has easy access to open country space for both recreational walks and stunning scenery.   There are good transport links to the larger towns, Milton Keynes (11 miles), (Aylesbury 9 miles) and Buckingham (7 miles).   These towns offer the major supermarkets and other shopping opportunities as well as the general hospitals being in Milton Keynes and Stoke Mandeville, Aylesbury.
