Why city commuters are choosing Mulberry Homes

More people than ever are choosing to live in the Midlands and commute into London, due to a better quality of living and lower house prices.  Mulberry Homes has a number of new homes across the region including Stokes Rise at Great Easton in Leicestershire, which is proving to fit the bill with many relocaters looking for the ultimate family home.

Darren Wright, Managing Director at Mulberry Homes said: “There’s no slowdown in the stream of commuters from London and the south-east heading for Market Harborough and the surrounding villages.  With huge improvements in train speeds over the last few years, being closer to London doesn’t necessarily mean a quicker journey to work.  Good transport links are a major factor in the decision making process and with Corby and Market Harborough providing excellent rail links in to London, and the beautifully designed homes in the region’s most sought after locations such as Great Easton, Mulberry’s homes are proving incredibly popular with commuters indeed.”

“With journey times down to an hour, it’s a tempting proposition for a commuter who may easily already spend at least 45 minutes trekking in from the London suburbs. The price of the annual season ticket doesn’t seem that significant when taking into consideration the dramatic reduction in house prices and the luxury lifestyle and sense of community on offer.”

Nestled in the heart of the village, Stokes Rise is a collection of  four bedroom expansive family sized homes modelled on the lasting character of this highly regarded and thriving Leicestershire village.

Great Easton is considered to be one of the most attractive Welland Valley villages in highly accessible and yet unspoilt countryside. The village contains a public house, shop and primary school on its doorstep and sits within the district of Market Harborough.  The nearby towns of Market Harborough and Corby provide a fast rail link into London St Pancras plus an array of shopping facilities and excellent schooling alongside the neighbouring towns of Uppingham and Oakham.

Homes at Stokes Rise range in price from £449,950 – £740,000 with Help to Buy and Part Exchange available.  For more information call 01582 797562.
