The number of London homebuyers who have moved out of the capital has reached the highest number for four years. The freedom of homeworking, the desire for more space and access to countryside have collectively empowered buyers to take their property search further afield and find homes in locations that offer more value for money. The Hertfordshire town of Stevenage is one such location where nearly 20% of homes were purchased by London leavers in the last 12 months. For those looking for an opportunity to purchase a beautiful new home in the heart of this popular commuter town, award-winning housebuilder Hill in partnership with Stevenage Borough Council, is set to launch an exclusive collection of homes at Malvern Place. Available to purchase off-plan, this attractive selection of just seven houses offers the perfect place to call home.
Rebecca Littler, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Hill comments:
“Malvern Place offers homebuyers a truly fantastic place to live. For those moving out of London, Stevenage offers the best of the capital on a smaller scale - great commuter links, a selection of good schools for families, idyllic countryside and a vibrant hub of bustling towns that offer an array of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from. We are very pleased to be able to launch this stunning collection of homes off-plan and would certainly urge any prospective purchasers to register their details as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
Comprising an attractive selection of just seven three, four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached houses, Malvern Place occupies a prime setting within the Hertford Road area of Stevenage, a short distance from the main town centre. Each property has been individually designed to provide thoughtful, bright well-organised designs, paired with a luxurious interior specification. A variety of layouts host generous living spaces, with the five-bedroom homes enjoying impressive living/kitchen/dining areas featuring bi-fold doors opening onto the rear garden, elegantly bringing the outside in, and the three-bedroom homes present accommodation spread across three floors. Every home features ensuite bathrooms, a private driveway leading to a garage and underfloor heating on the ground floor.
