Every buyer is looking for something different in a home, whether this be size, outdoor space or design. However, according to a recent survey by Yorkshire Building Society, first time buyers top priorities included commuting distance, transport links and setting[i]. Ticking all of these boxes, Storey Homes’ De Montfort Place development in Bedford offers a range of contemporary new homes, boasting a beautiful setting yet with convenient transport links for commuting.
Located within a Conservation Area close to Bedford town centre, De Montfort Place offers 152 exclusive houses and apartments in a range of styles, comprising one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom houses.
Sympathetically designed to fit in with the surrounding late Victorian properties, externally all the properties replicate this traditional period style, whilst internally they provide all the modern convenience of a new home.
Offering a diverse range of homes to provide every buyer with the opportunity to find their dream new build home, the development is located within an 11-minute walk of Bedford train station. From there, frequent links into London St Pancras take just 39 minutes. By car, major roads are easily accessible from the development, with the M1 within a five-mile drive, and Luton Airport approximately 40 minutes away.

The range of properties is sure to appeal not only to first-time buyers hoping to benefit from these excellent features but also growing families or downsizers – there’s a beautiful home for everyone!”
