L&Q launch Shared Ownership houses at family-friendly Bedford development

Houses remain the most popular property choice for new buyers across the UK market, with three-bedroom houses currently the most sought-after property type in 2023, according to data collected by The Guild of Property Professionals.

Meeting this demand, L&Q is launching a new collection of six attractive two- and three-bedroom Shared Ownership terraced and semi-detached houses at L&Q at Willow Grove on 3rd June. Creating a pocket of affordability in this attractive suburb of Bedfordshire, homes at L&Q at Willow Grove are available exclusively through Shared Ownership, with deposits for the new homes starting from just £6,150.





Located on the outskirts of the historic town of Bedford, L&Q at Willow Grove is a stylish new residential quarter nestled within the growing neighbourhood of Wixams, a major new development formed of four separate villages. 


An affordable route to home ownership in the charming community of Wixams, L&Q’s homes add to the already flourishing community settled at the development. The new village has been designed to offer a truly family-friendly new neighbourhood complete with local shops, schools, a playground, ponds and a village green.

“Bedford is becoming an increasingly popular choice for buyers with its vibrant town centre, proximity to green spaces and status as a desirable commuter hub.”

“Interest for larger family houses in the area continues to grow, and our upcoming launch of Shared Ownership homes at L&Q at Willow Grove will cater for this growing demand. With this new collection of properties, buyers can expect spacious and light-filled houses in a development which perfectly balances traditional village life and modern convenience.”
