Home Listing

Kempston, Bedfordshire

Developed on the grounds of a 17th-century mansion, the new development features an existing manor house dating back to 1854, which will be restored and converted into four striking apartments. With an emphasis on preserving and enhancing the existing surroundings, Storey Homes has created a distinctly unique scheme which features an additional fifteen bespoke home styles, creating fifty-five plots in total.


Located in this popular residential area, Homes at The Place will qualify for the stamp-duty holiday and start at £304,950. A magnificent grade II listed wall and gates embellished with original eagle statues provide an impressive entrance to The Place.


Home hunters are then greeted with the centre piece of this development, The Bury Apartments. These beautiful one and two-bedroom homes situated in the refurbished manor house enjoy imposing original features including huge windows which let in streams of light. Internally, generous rooms with high ceilings and stylish kitchens and bathrooms complete these distinguished homes.


Complimenting this striking building, home-hunters will also discover a diverse range of distinct homes offering options for all types of buyers. The Place features a further choice of four more apartment types, from contemporary designs to barn style homes, along with two-bedroom coach houses, two and three-bedroom charming cottage style homes, attractive double fronted four-bedroom properties and detached three - story homes.


Katy Jordan, Managing Director at Storey Homes, comments:


“Our vision was to create a scheme that breathes new life into the area and is in harmony with the local setting. We’ve safeguarded the original and listed elements of the site and enhanced the character of the setting to ensure that The Place celebrates the charm of its heritage whilst also looking to the future with thoughtfully designed homes. As a result, The Place has its own distinct identity.”


Designed with modern lifestyle in mind, many of the homes at The Place benefit  from a home study, private parking and private gardens.


In keeping with the scenic backdrop, properties here are surrounded by generous green boulevards and residents will enjoy an onsite orchard and a valued feeling of space.
