Mulberry Homes builds brand new bungalows in Houghton Conquest

Prospective Bedfordshire homebuyers have the chance to own one of the nation’s rarest and most sought after homes – the bungalow.

In the past 30 years the number of bungalows built each year has dramatically dropped from almost 30,000 to just 2,210, according to the National House Building Council (NHBC). That is a fall from one in six new homes to one in 63.

It’s good news then that Mulberry Homes is including a cluster of three bedroom bungalows as part of its Houghton Fields development in Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire.

Kerry Jones, Head of Sales for Mulberry Homes, said: “The shortage of bungalows is not a reflection of this in-demand house-type and with the UK’s population aging, demand for single story homes is only likely to grow.  Bungalows are particularly well suited to older buyers and empty nesters who generally want to downsize.  These brand new homes have been carefully designed for modern living and as with all new Mulberry homes, the bungalows at Houghton Fields enjoy a high specification as standard, including kitchens that are well equipped with integrated top brand name appliances, plus bathrooms with quality fixtures, fittings and flooring.”

Available from just £394,950, the Marsden is a spacious property with an ample sized lounge with separate dining area, plus an eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms, two well-proportioned bathrooms plus a garage.

For those with a property to sell, it doesn’t matter if home buyers are moving up the housing ladder, downsizing to somewhere more manageable or making a sideways move – Mulberry Homes can help secure a buyer with the minimum of fuss with its Assisted Move scheme.

Located off Bedford Road in Houghton Conquest between the county town of Bedford and the market town of Ampthill, the development at Houghton Fields has been designed to complement the neighbouring environment with plenty of open space, as well as private gardens and parking.  The village offers a shop, post office, active village hall and three good family gastropubs / restaurants. There are various clubs and societies for young and old and the village is surrounded by picturesque landscapes with an abundance of country walks.
